Raw Bar Is Great, Hot Seafood Is Good But Not Great

I think a couple of the negative reviews are ridiculous and mean spirited. I live in Philly and have dined here many times. This place is NOT smelly or dirty, although one time the Men's Room was less than ""fresh."" Anyhow, the fish and seafood is quite good if you know what to order. Have broiled not fried! The great feature are the raw clams and oysters which are wonderful ... special prices during happy hour (4 -... view more

Couldn't stay long enough to order- smelled terrible!

I walked in with my boyfriend looking for some cheap, tasty seafood. Instead, the smell of dead fish was so overpowering that I had to leave within 5 minutes- we walked up third street to Dmitri's and found, to our surprise, the prices at Snockey's had been higher!

Not sure what people are smoking giving this place a good review. The place is absolutely terrible. The oysters are not bad, but who can eat in that lousy atmosphere of dirty dishes? Ive seen dive bars cleaner than this place. How can a place not take any pride in its appearance? The patrons in there were either 100 years old or derelict look-alikes. I am sad and ashamed that the city doesnt have a solid Oyster... view more

I'm Loving This Place!

Snockey's offers great seafood at fantastic prices. Not quite sure why some people are complaining about the place unless they are expecting something other than what the name clearly states...Snockey's Oyster & Crab House. I've been going to Snockey's for almost 30 years...since I was a teenager and I have always had a delicious meal whether it's the raw oysters (Fanny Bays, Peacock Cove, etc..typically 6 to 12 ... view more

should have went to joe's crab shack insted

We found snockey's driving by. My fiance said he would really like to try the place out. So we first looked it up online. The first reviews we saw were good ( should have read the rest). Let's just say the only real good thing about the experience was the beer that came in a bottle. I'm origianally from New England and grew up on the best and freshest seafood ever so maybe i'm a bit particular about my seefood, bu... view more

Chesapeake Bay Oysters!

I am a regular at Snockey's and last night my boyfriend and I had the best oysters ever. Chesapeake Bay oysters were very meaty and only 75 cents each! What a deal. The steamed clams were really good too! A bowl of yummy lobster bisque completed the night! All the staff was very friendly last night. On our last experience, we experienced bad service- but last night made up for it. My boyfriend's cousin was not... view more

Great Oysters!

My wife and I tried Snockey's when we visited Philly recently for the Tut Exhibit. We were intrigued by the fact that it was a family-owned neighborhood seafood reataurant established around the turn of the century. We had a feast that we will long remember. It does look it's age but in a classic way. You can watch your oysters being shucked at the old-fashioned white ceramic-tiled bar (where I recommend you ta... view more

Iffy seafood

We tried Snockey's because it's in the neighborhood and we wanted raw oysters. We got the 12-oyster sampler and it was not good. The Chincoteagues were off, tasting like an old gym sock. The others were just flavorless. None tasted fresh. We also got lobster tail, which apparently had been frozen before it was cooked. It was tough and chewy. The potatoes that came with it were a bit underdone, but basically fine. We ... view more

Not Clean

I went to dinner here last night with my family and we were VERY disappointed with the restaurant. The place was filled with clutter, dirty and there was no air conditioner working. There was 1 ceiling fan running and it only had 2 blades on it - at least 3 blades were missing??? We sat at our table only to be fighting the flys who kept flying around our faces. The stewed tomatoes were DRY, the skinned potatoes w... view more
