Very nice and reasonably priced restaurant. Inside and outside eating available. We were a party of four and all of our food from appetizers to salads and soups and entrees were excellent.

Based on price, quality of food and service I feel it has to be the best Sunday Brunch in Greater Fort Lauderdale...

Sat outside on a beautiful evening and food was wonderful. Would've liked a refill on water as well as the lemon we asked for but all in all a great dinner.

Great Food and Atmosphere
Restaurant is aptly named given the structure in which it resides. A classic boathouse adapted to a fine dining experience. The service was great and the food is fantastic. Do not pass on the bread as it is an experience in sweet enjoyment. The scallops were cooked to perfection as was the asparagus. Highly recommend!

My husband & I went for dinner and was immediatly impressed with how quickly we were seated even though we were early for out reservation time. The food was fabulous and the view of the bay a plus! We visit Florida a good bit so I'm sure we will be back!

setting could not be more beautiful- enjoy!

Happy Fathers Day
Father's Day was memorable at Bimini. French toast was divine. Our group loved the omelette station and the seafood. Our waitress was a bit brusque but it was Fathers Day and it was quite busy. I would recommend this restaurant for brunch on any weekend.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a wonderful Father's Day brunch at Bimini. It was our first time to dine there and we will definitely go back.. The food selection was amazing and everything was delicious. My daughter lives in Hallandale and had heard about the restaurant. We live in North Carolina and were visiting with her and our 4 month old grandson.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Blackend Salmon, broccoli, and potato salad was great. My friend had the baby back ribs with the pencil asparagus with the potato salad and enjoyed it. We ended up taking food home. Also, the Bimini bread was excellent!!!!!
6/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food here is very good & atmosphere is great. The best view!

Great Florida Waterfront Dining
Inside or out, Bimini Boatyard delivers great waterfront dining with a traditional Florida atmosphere.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful view, great outdoor
Wonderful view, great outdoor dining. Mahi mahi & swordfish were excellent (both blackened). Even the rice was perfectly cooked.
7/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our second time dining on the waterfront patio, and we brought friends this time.
We all ordered fish and all enjoyed our food. The chef Specialties were interesting blends of flavors and my Mahi Mahi was outstanding. The sides and portions were very good. The bottle of wine reasonable.
We sat right along the edge of the patio overlooking the intercostal.
The view added to the great meal experience. There was also a solo Guitare entertainer singing Jimmy Buffit. He was very talented. Great voice and high end equipment so very smooth sound. We were far and it was clear.
The service was great! The manager even stopped by to see how we liked our meal.
We will go back! We've had two great experiences here!

Bimini gets better & better!
Terrific fresh fish, huge crisp salads and more. We had a burger with fries, Cobb salad and grilled mahi. The calamari starter was perfect, we enjoyed our entrees and the service was primo. Private spaces for groups and the huge waterside patio is great on a pretty day. Boats can easily dock and there's ample parking. You just can't go wrong with this casual neighborhood favorite.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
went for Sunday brunch. Just me and my husband and we've been several times before. This time it was especially noisy and that was quite irritating! 2 big groups behind us that insisted on screaming across the tables!
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful Sunday Brunch
We had a party of four at the Sunday brunch buffet and it was wonderful! I personally enjoyed all the seafood choices as well as the hot food options (including eggs Benedict). Two members of our party took advantage of the omelet station and enjoyed it very much. The only slight downfall was a hostess that was bordering on rude, but our server more than made up for that and we had a great meal.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food quality and presentation were exceptional. The Bimini Frenchtoast is amazing! This is the best brunch I haven't ever had. Our server, Stacy, was delightful. We could NOT have had a better experience. Thanks!

Sunday Brunch To Die For!!!!
This was my 3rd visit to this restaurant and it was another time that I left full and happy. The brunch is awesome and you get your money's worth. If you are in Ft. Lauderdale on a Sunday, the Bimini Boatyard's Brunch is a MUST!!!!
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
we came back
We were here last year for vacation and my husband watched what he ate all week so that he could enjoy this brunch. We really love the selection even though it seemed like less food this time... We still left stuffed.

Great Sunday Brunch
what a great spread, too much to chose from. The bimini bread French toast is great, lots of fresh seafood & salads, plus omelette, pasta & carving station - yummy
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bimini Boatyard is always an excellent choice for dining. Our visit was this time was no different. The only concern I could mention was that, although there were not many diners this night, our service could have been more attentive. We hardly ever saw the waitress.That aside.... The food was still perfect and the restaurant holds on to one of the Top Picks for SoFla..!!
8/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
Always a winner!
Great B'day dinner at one of our favorites! We were in one of the special rooms and it was a great night! Quick service, great food, a wonderful time was had by all! Only thing was what looked like construction going on in the lower bar area and there was no view to the outside like we love while sitting at the bar waiting for guests to arrive...otherwise terrific!
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Bread EVER!!!!!!
Excellent food! LOVED this restaurant! BIMINI bread is a MUST!!!!!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistent. Diverse menu. Great outdoor dining, service could be better.

Food and atmosphere were wonderful.
Food and atmosphere were wonderful. My friends that were visiting from out of town loved it! The waiter spilled a glass of water and a glass of wine on my husband and myself. They had to get him another meal because it spilled into his plate. He was very apologetic but I felt they could of at least offered us a free drink or dessert or something. The manager never even came by the table.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
OUR FOOD WAS FABULOUS
EIGHT IN OUR PARTY EXPERIENCED MANY OF THE SEAFOOD OFFERED AND ALL WAS FRESH AND DELICIOUS. IF YOU HAVE FOOD ALLERGIES THE CHEF COMES AND SPEAK WITH YOU AND ACCOMMODATE YOU. CAN'T WAIT TO GO AGAIN.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Bimini Boatyard Brunch has something for everyone and was quite enjoyable. I suspect that it will be packed when the "snowbirds" are fully back in South Florida!

Best Place to Dine on the Water
If you looking to dine on the water, Bimini Boatyard can't be beat. No noisy cars on roadway to hear, nor busy waterway. Mussels appetizer had a nice kick and snapper was big enough for 3 of us to share. Attentive waitress was very accommodating.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Service and great food
This was my first time at Bimini Boatyard. I had dinner with a business associate. He eats gluten free and they had a number of dishes that fit his needs. I had grilled salmon that was a quality piece of fish. I forgot to tell our server that I wanted it done rare; she offered to have a new one prepared but it was so tasty that I didn't want to part with it and enjoyed it even though it was cooked medium. I would suggest that the server ask how the patron would like it done when taking the order, but that's a management training issue anyway. I would highly recommend this restaurant and I will return many times.

Overall a perfect dining experience
My friends and I have met at Bimini Boatyard on a few other occasions and have always enjoyed the food and had a wonderful evening. This week we were fortunate to go when they introduced a new chef and menu. We always loved the food before but this new menu took our dining experience to a new level. Everything was amazing; we shared a shrimp appetizer on a tortilla ( sorry don't remember the name as it was recommended), fried calamari and lobster Mac & cheese. For dinner we all ordered the dolphin topped with crabmeat and the grouper pommodoro and finished our meal with the most delicious multi layered chocolate cake. The service was flawless; our waiter Craig made perfect recommendations, checked in with us often but never rushed us.

A Gem in Ft. Lauderdale
Great food and location! Server was rude and cranky...apparently he did not take his happy pills! It was a gorgeous evening and we were determined to enjoy ourselves in spite of his demeanor. He mixed up our wine orders (Chardonnay and Moscato) then argued when I said that my "Moscato" was not good. At this point he commented that I had the Chardonnay (which I had not ordered). I pointed out this was how he had served it...he became surly as if I was the one to blame. Eventually he offered to exchange the wine. I have never tasted a dry and non-sweet Moscato however apparently my palate is not as refined as I thought it was.

Water & outside bar area
This has always been a great restaurant - it has an outside bar for Happy Hour with great water views! The food is improving, too!

A Room with a View
This restaurant offers you the option of sitting outside under umbrellas gazing at the waterway which is relaxing or sitting inside where it is air conditioned. We went for the Sunday Brunch with three children for my birthday. The children loved helping themselves to the french toast and having the omelets made especially for them at the Omelet Station. We enjoyed the Nova and Whitefish and the fruits and salads. But you also have a choice of seafood, shrimp, crab, hot station with roast beef and trays with hot meals like salmon, beef, potatoes, sausage, bacon, etc. The dessert bar was wonderful. The children loved the chocolate chip cookies.

Great find in Ft Lauderdale
Found an advertisement in a magazine for this place. Decided to try it because we warned to eat by the water. Great choice! Food was very good - service was excellent! Nice outdoor bar with live music .... Beautiful yachts surrounding the outdoor dining deck. Would recommend.

We celebrated my daughter's
We celebrated my daughter's birthday before boarding the cruise ship. The staff is very friendly and accommodating; the musician was awesome playing the entire time we had brunch. The outdoor seating was good. The food was tasty and chefs were fun while making made-to-order omelettes and pasta. I will definitely return!

Fun place to meet
Met friends for dinner who are from New Orleans area and in FLL for Boat Show. 6 in our party, seated at a comfortable round in corner with windows to enjoy the evening's view. Jordan was our server and she was very personable, fun and went along with our crazy bunch. Our entrees and drinks were all enjoyable. It was a fun evening for all of us.
We've all enjoyed other visits to Bimini Boatyard, and will probably return again soon.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was across the parking lot from my hotel, kinda in a strip mall, so I was a bit skeptical about the quality. But the fish was all fresh and deliciously prepared and the service was good. Happy to have found it!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
We took the kids for brunch fast seating amazing food the kids loved the Bimini French toast we really enjoyed it with the family ;)
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
This was the Ft Lauderdale Boat Show weekend so there were many fabulous boats moored right beside the restaurant. The place was busy and had a pleasant atmosphere. The food was fine if a bit mass-catering, which it has to be, I suppose. The Eggs Benedict ran out early on and I didn't see them replenished. However, the sea food was constantly being refilled and was very popular. Our server, Ken, was speedy and attentive. It was wonderful sitting on the outdoor deck, right on the edge of the water but I understand you have to be there early as these tables are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great Ft Lauderdale find!
We went to the Bimini Boatyard for dinner while down in Ft Lauderdale on a short vacation. Food was excellent, service outstanding. The noise level was a bit loud in the area where we were and the main dining area and bar were very loud. The prices are a bit on the high side for the extras like drinks and dessert, main meals upper 20's plus. Very creative presentations of the main dishes with wonderful explanations and recommendations by the wait staff. Wonderful food for a special occasion.

Can't beat the fresh fish
As always the fresh fish was delicious. Our party ordered salmon, grouper & snapper. Everything was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The soup was also very good and not too salty. The key lime pie is not to be missed. We had an excellent waitress that was attentive and gave us great suggestions. We eat here everytime we visit Ft, Lauderdale before cruising.

Dine among 007 style yachts in this romantic setting. Great seafood, friendly service. Great for parties.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice place with a water view.
When I say water view it is an inlet for access to piers with great views of very pricey yachts. Nice area with convenient access to many hotels catering to the cruise industry. Menu is varied but leans toward seafood as you would expect.
Service was very good with excellent waitress. Menu is varied and fairly unique meaning different from the standard fare you usually run into. I thought the preparation was very good.

I drove from Royal Palm Beach, fl looking for a special restaurant and found it. First time dining with a scenic waterview and we loved it! Our wattress was so friendly and fast. food was not overseasoned, it was perfect. This is a top favorite of our's for sure.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our friends were in from Chicago and wanted to eat on the water. We were hoping for some live entertainment and scored. The outdoor dining was perfect and there was a guitar player/vocalist performing when we ate. Food was good...I don't recommend the tuna salad though.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
We (2 couples) were in town for a cruise and were very pleased to find this restaurant. We all enjoyed our meals and the service was outstanding in the restaurant and at the out door bar. Such a fun evening! Thanks for a great start to our vacation!!
