What You'll Get
With new species of fish spontaneously materializing in the Gulf of Mexico daily, a local seafood eatery is as valuable to a foodie as a portable pepper grinder. Today's Groupon leads seafood lovers to that body of fish-filled water and urges them to drink deeply of its bounty. For $12, you get $25 worth of seafood and drinks at Snookers Grill, located in Tarpon Springs.
Start with a clam basket ($5.95) and savor the hand-dipped mollusks served with fries, or opt for an order of Caribbean stuffed shrimp with crab ($9.95). The Florida-style grill's eclectic menu boasts seafood specialties sure to make any aquaphile's mouth water. Nibble discreetly on the house-made blue crab cakes, drizzled with Caribbean chili aioli ($12.95), or the Key West stuffed grouper, packed full of spinach, scallops, crab meat, and shrimp, served under a creamy white-wine and feta sauce ($13.95). For the seafoodphobic, Snookers offers an array of landlubbing options, such as the build-your-own pizza ($7.95), a pulled-pork sandwich ($6.95), 10-ounce New York strip steak over Jamaican rum sauce ($12.95), and six different choices of grilled beef patties (starting at $5.95). The eatery's lighter salad, wrap, and pasta selections are a satisfying choice for those intent on saving room for an order of banana foster bites with ice cream ($3.95) or bread pudding ($3.25).
After your dinner, transfer over to Snookers' 40-foot boat bar for a cocktail and bask in the glow of the restaurant's 2,000-gallon aquarium. The eatery's causal atmosphere makes it a fun place to watch a sporting event, and the more adventurous of your dining companions will be sure to venture outdoors to feed one of Snookers' live alligators.
