Diner Reviews
  • "The remodelation done looks amazing and the musician was just perfect for the atmosphere the reataurant want to create. Unfortunately out food experience was poor. I always order an adult meal for my kids to share since kids food is usually overcooked; I was persuade by the waitress to do so this time, and the kids hamburgers came burned even though were ordered medium well. Scallops and shrimp in my plate were good but quinoa side was overcooked and did not have any taste. If you have children, I do not recommend the kids menu. Food is not special but, I guess you are paying extra for the location."

  • "The restaurant was clean and inviting with great views of the intercoastal. Service was adequate. I ordered the Snapper which was awful, not at all like fresh but frozen prepared food. My friend had the hamburger which she said was not juicy, her french fries were great. The appetizer calamari was prepared differently and it was delicious. Would not return for a meal."

  • "Best place in the neighborhood, great chef , great all round menu, right on the water, staff are great, I recently moved down to Hollywood but still drive up to go to Shooters they did such an amazing job with the remodel and staff always friendly and enthusiastic."

  • "Lovely location that has been completely renovated by the new owners. Upscale look and food, casual lifestyle on the water. Beautifully appointed indoor and outdoor dining on the intracoastal of Fort Lauderdale. The food was very good- seafood, salads, sandwiches, appetizers, full bar. Went with another couple and sat outside under the canopy. Will go back."

  • "Really enjoyed the newly renovated Shooters. The décor and ambience is wonderful and chic. Everything was great- food, service and atmosphere. My only complaint is that maybe they should have had a "boaters Bathroom/changing room" outside by the boats and docks. My friend and I were in the restroom, very dressed up for an evening dinner and here were 3 women with their 5 kids all sandy and in bathing suits, all trying to use the facilities and change into other clothing. It was not a good situation for the evening crowd. Not a huge deal I suppose but it just didn't fit with the new elegant atmosphere."

  • "The decor is really great and the outdoor seating space is very nice. It was a little hot at 6:30 PM when we arrived but one of the waitstaff offered to crank down the shade a few inches so the sun wasn't beating directly on us. The service was pretty slow otherwise though. We were only there for drinks and apps as we were heading to a surprise birthday party afterwards so timing was important to us. The food was pretty good. Nothing to complain about but nothing to rave about either. The real reason to come to Shooters is the atmosphere."

  • "Our (my wife and my son) first time to Florida location. Been to Cleveland's many times in late 80's. Great addition to South Florida's dining experience. Obviously new management did a great job, can't beat the scene, everything was perfect and this is not an exaggeration!"

  • "We love Shooters and frequent this place 2-3 times a month. They recently just change the menu to offer brunch on weekend. Though the restaurant is beautiful, it is a casual feel restaurant. You don't feel like you have to dress up to go there, but you don't have to compromise the food and service."

  • "This was our first time at Shooters but will not be the last. We visit the area a few times each year and often try to find water side dining. This was a wonderfully scenic spot with great food and excellent service. We'll be back!"

  • "Under new ownership, Shooters recently underwent a complete renovation and the restaurant looks GORGEOUS. The old plastic tables outside have been replaced with sleek furniture. The inside is redone in all white and wood, very classy. My only complaint (and unfortunately it's significant) is that they also redid the menu and its a huge step back. There is a lot of asian influence, only one fish dish (and I just can't make sense of it-- "chorizo crusted snapper.") Everything was well prepared, just not exactly what I was expecting from my longtime favorite seafood destination."

  • "We got a great table location and I feel it is because we made a reservation. Table inside but with doors open still felt that we were right on the water. Fish was excellent and the service supberb!!"

  • "The new Shooter's look is AMAZING!!! From the decor, to the layout, to the 5 Star service this place has done a 360!! We are young group that loves to get together at the bar for drinks and then have dinner, and this place is just perfect for this type of scene. Service is great, food is fare ... could try some new items that are not so 'meat and pototaos' style."

  • "We have been to Shooters quite often for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. Brought some friends that had never been and they loved it. Food was good service was a little slow because it was Saturday night and quite busy. Definitely need reservations for Saturday night."

  • "We enjoyed our visit to Shooters basically for the outdoor seating. Quality of food was very good but items on menu were dramatically reduced from even a month ago. More like a lunch menu rather than a dinner menu. Our server was nice but was rushing us too much and had to be told 3 times to give us time to look at the menu. But the outdoor seating on the Intracoastal was perfect for a Fort Lauderdale setting. I would go back for lunch or brunch or just drinks but not necessarily for dinner unless friends insisted."

  • "I had a great time at Shooters! I was a little nervous when I picked this place for my date since the reviews were kinda mixed but decided to try it anyway. It turned out to be a great experience and I would definitely go again. The food was delicious and the service was exactly how I like it."

  • "I must share that it was our first time and I personally will give it another chance and recommend. A few tips as we both work in Hospitality for many years. The hostess had great presence but came accross as if we were a bother as soon as we walked in. In reality, I believe that maybe she was a little overwhelmed due the high demand of your place at the time. Nonetheless, the first impression was a little off. Jeff did a fantastic job serving our table. Very attentive and funny. Provided with privacey for us to actual have conversations and enjoy our evening but always attentive to us to ensure that if we needed anything,, he will be there asap. Quick and efficient.."

  • "Ambience is fantastic - great indoor and stunning outdoor space on intercoastal. Go by boat or car Food is generally good. Service is hit or miss - male waiter on first visit was fantastic, but female waitresses on last visit not so good (our water took an hour to get to the table). Shooters needs a "floor manager" walking around all night talking with guests, making it a personal dining experience where people feel comfortable and engaged to give you feedback. Try asking: What did you like the most? Where can we improve on service? Where were you disappointed in food or service? What could we do to make Shooters a better dining venue? Did you like the entertainment or would you have preferred something else? "

  • "I hosted a small party of international guests and we were all thoroughly impressed with the new Shooter's restaurant. Attentive service with outstanding facilities complimented the good wine list and very good food. The vegetarian menu is restricted to a veggie-burger for an entree dish but a simple request to the server resulted in the Chef preparing a very well received dish. Really nice job to everyone at Shooter's!"

  • "The food at Shooter's Waterfront keeps getting better and better. As the tweak the menu, it become more impressive while maintaining a wide variety of flavorful selections and savory specials. This is a not to be missed location that is pleasing during the day and sizzling at night. You are disappointing out of town guests if you don't take them there for at least one meal and selling yourself short if you don't make it the next stop on your date night."
