Outstanding food
Moderate service
Dishcloths were being dried right next to our seat that we didnt feel like we were being treated properly.
Broken glass was given i could have hurt myself if i didnt ask for a replacement
Foods are amazing but thats it

Food and service was very good, the only flaw was the chips having way too much pepper on them. I will be back to try more food.

Enjoyed our meal at Snapper Rocks last night. I had booked but was delayed due to unforeseen circumstances. Luckily the restaurant rang to confirm that I was still going. The service was good with a very obliging waitress and the food was great.

The service was extremely friendly and observant. We noticed a crack on a glass and without even asking our server was over with a new glass he must have noticed us looking at it. I've really never had a bad meal at Snapper Rocks the crocodile bao is delicious but the mud crab laksa was amazing with a perfectly cooked giant crab claw topper how can you go wrong. Definitely worth the price $$

Always yummy food but serving sizes noticeably smaller than our previous experiences and presentation of food has gone down.
Love this place, the water spray out the front is a great idea.
Would love to see staff wearing more than bike shorts when serving dinner.
Salt n pepper croc is amazing and the char grilled fish wings are the best!

Food was delicious all round, particularly the tofu bao bun. Service was good, however it was very hard to get (they seem to be operating on skeleton staff). It's also rather noisy inside.

My wife however, the Spicy Chicken Burger was a touch on the Mild side of things. But overall a great little spot for a feed.

Staff not very attentive and had to keep calling them over to order. Menus are dirty and need to be replaced and need more air conditioning to make inside comfortable. Music very loud.
Meal was amazing.

Good food, excellent wait staff, an outdoor (lawn) setting for dinner with children who can graze and roam makes for a very happy dining experience in Darwin.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you.
