Are you searching for a fun, family-friendly AND socially distant outing? Take a dirt road adventure down to good Ole’ Florida and visit us at Snook Haven, smack dab on the Myakka River in Venice, FL. We’ve got outdoor seating, delicious house-smoked BBQ and fun Florida eats, a spectacular selection of locally brewed craft beer and TONS of outdoor activities to keep you and the fam' entertained.
Whether you’d like full service or counter service, we have outdoor seating galore. Opt for full service and grab a table along the Myakka River on our spacious outdoor deck. Our tables are large, spaced appropriately and can be sunny or shaded by an umbrella, whichever you prefer! You can also dine in our screened-in patio to enjoy fresh air and peaceful River views.
Going for counter service? Find a picnic table under our majestic Spanish Oaks – it’s an Old Florida experience at its finest. The tables are in a vast outdoor area, spaced appropriately and are large enough for the entire group to spread out. Dine, drink and enjoy the atmosphere!
Our employees are required to wear masks. Masks aren’t required to be worn by guests, but we highly encourage you to do so – especially when walking through common areas of the restaurant.
Enjoy toe-tappin’ tunes from a safe distance! Live entertainment plays Thursday through Sunday at Snook Haven, weather-permitting. Our Main Stage is outside and allows generous space for guests to rock out along the Myakka River. If you’d like to get up and stomp your boots to the beat, feel free to do so in a socially distant manner. Please take care to groove to the music from at least six feet apart. Masks aren’t required, but highly encouraged.
