Dan Casey opened Snapper's after years of serving up Vienna dogs at Dan's Beachside Grill and running a grouper sandwich joint. Snapper's was something different, something upscale with fresh-off-the-boat fish and a wine list more sophisticated than nearly all the others on St. Pete Beach. At the end of 2012 it underwent a major renovation with a new wine room and maintains its reputation for selling the kinds of species anglers tend to keep for themselves: reef fish like mango snapper, hogfish and triggerfish. Chef Chris Burghart (who is also chef at MadFish) tends to keep things simple to showcase freshness, broiling a grouper fillet and pairing it with a rotating lineup of salsas and a little veg and coconut basmati rice, or pairing a nice piece of snapper with garlicky scampi shrimp and roasted asparagus.
