ABOUT SNOOK HAVEN
Go ahead – take a drive down that dirt road! It’s the one you’ve always been curious about, located at the intersection of River Road and East Venice Avenue.
After an exotically beautiful and shaded stretch of canopied palm trees, you’ll discover Snook Haven, a tin-roofed and rustic restaurant, at the end of the road. Truly unique to Sarasota, the Venice landmark is “Ole’ Florida” at its finest and settled smack dab on the Myakka River. Come on in and take a seat!
You can experience it all, from BBQ, brews, boats, bands and banjos to backwoods beauty. And, Snook Haven has a wild, yet extraordinary, history of felonious activities, feature films and fishing camps. What better place to spend an afternoon, taking in some local entertainment while feasting on delicious smoked meats with a locally brewed beer in hand?
BBQ AT ITS BEST
Snook Haven features an extensive smokehouse-style menu. We prep all of our meats on-site and smoke them in our state-of-the-art smoker daily. Out comes juicy, flavorful and fulfilling meats, including popular options like pulled pork, pulled chicken, beef brisket, ribs and wings. We recommend you drench them in our house-made and well-loved BBQ sauces. Our Original, Sweet, Spicy Whiskey and Carolina Mustard sauce blends will cater to any taste.
In the mood for seafood? Not to worry, we offer multiple fish or shrimp dishes. And, it’s not a visit to Snook Haven unless you start things off with an order of our signature Gator Bites, a true Florida favorite.
Lastly, don’t forget to check out our plethora of draft and canned beers. Of the 16 drafts we offer, many of them are locally brewed around Sarasota and feature favorites from JDubs, Motorworks and Big Top breweries, among others.
Feel free to opt for full service by grabbing a table on the deck or patio with fantastic Myakka River views, or sit inside for some much-needed air conditioning. You can also order from the window at the counter and take a seat at the picnic tables underneath our massive Spanish moss-draped oaks. The tables are adjacent to our main stage, which is a go-to option when live music is in session.
