Diner Reviews
  • "We really enjoyed eating on the water. The attendant worked with us on finding a great seat close to the water on a fairly busy night. The food was very good, served hot…really no complaints there. Our waiter however, left a lot to be desired. He was rushed, we had to ask him if they had any specials, and I had to ask him if I could have coffee after our meals. Sorry, but I felt like I was doing his job, and it just shouldn't be that way. We might go back, but I will definitely ask for a different waiter if we do."

  • "Our experience at Shooters was great. This is definitely a step up from the old Shooters. I mentioned that we were celebrating our anniversary and they made sure to accommodate us at a wonderful table by the water. They had a great singer by the bar area that we really liked. We had two appetizers that were outstanding the Tuna under the "RAW" area of the menu and we also ordered the Mac n Chesse which was one of the bests we have had. The dinner was great too but a little under on the salt which was no biggie. With hardly any room left we tried the Bread pudding and WOW!!! Will be going back for sure!!!! "

  • "The waiter needs to be more knowledgable of the items on the menu including the beer choice. My overall rating would of been higher if this was the case."

  • "Shooters is located right on the water and has some nice views. The menu is decent but not extensive. Service is efficient but not overly friendly. The food was on par with most other restaurants in the area and the prices are reasonable. With so many choices in the Fort Lauderdale area, they really could focus a little more on attentive service. Our waiter definitely seemed to be forcing a smile and we did not see a lot of him during our dinner."

  • "My Wife and l decided to check out Shooters last Sunday, we were joined by my Wife's Mother and Father. This was our first visit since the new owners took over and revamped the location. To say they did a good job would be the understatement of the year! The new look is GORGEOUS! The atmosphere is wonderful, very much a "resort" feeling. Very impressive indeed, the food was wonderful - the service was fantastic! All four of us had a fabulous time and we will absolutely be going back again and again. If you want a great place to bring friends or family for a delicious meal and refreshing cocktails on the waterfront - THIS place is just the ticket!"

  • "04/12/14 I celebrated my 30th birthday with my love and I was extremely impressed with the service, food, and ambiance. I ordered the coconut shrimp served with a mango apple Salsa as an appetizer. It was to die for !!!!! It was so good, I had to order another. My entree was shrimp and scallops served with mash potato and asparagus, ....yum yum! My boyfriend had the jerk pork tenderloins with rice beans and sweet fried plantains. Sad to say, my honey did not enjoy his meal :(. He was dissatisfied with his meal, but the waitress, atmosphere and service was GREAT for him. I LOVE THIS PLACE AND ILL BE BACK :)"

  • "This weekend we decided to go here for dinner with some friends that were from out of town. I didn't realize they had remodeled the place and I was pleasantly surprised at what a fantastic job they did. I mean they took this place to an entirely new level. THIS is where I want to take people from out of town. The new decor, the food and the atmosphere made for a wonderful evening. I think there is a good chance they will be getting our business again very soon!"

  • "We were nervous when we heard Shooters was being renovated. Some redesigns are too "upscale" and the place loses the charm it once had. Not so here. They kept the basic design and just upgraded the decor, and the menu is not the usual south Florida stuff - it is MUCH better. Nice job guys."

  • "We took friends who had never been to Shooter's to dinner on Saturday night. I had a reservation but was told to wait in the bar area and they would come get us. As I watched other couples being led to tables, I approached the reservation desk and then was told I could be seated. We sat outside, it was very loud with patrons and a band playing. We ordered a drink and then dinner. As we were taking the third bites of our appetizers, the entrée arrived! They were obviously trying to get as many people in and out on Saturday night."

  • "The new, updated Shooters is nice! The calamari appetizer was the best my husband & I have ever tasted. The lamb, fish, and cheeseburger were tasty. The fish & chips, not so good-fish was dry. The side salads that come with the meal are so small my husband ate his in four bites. Once they work out a few glitches with their new digs this place will be great! We will definitely go back."

  • "The redesigned, newly decorated Shooters looks great and has increased seating capacity, but it's not in sync with the wait staff and kitchen abilities to keep up. We had a group of six people and a reservation for 6:30pm. Our food ended up being served after 8:30. We talked to the manager to let him know. The kitchen just wasn't able to keep up with the volume. The waiter brought a complimentary glass of wine, but it wasn't a wine we were drinking. Things were not running smooth. We hope that as "season" slows down, Shooters staff training and abilities and kitchen processes will align with the volume and demand of dinners."

  • "I hadn't been here in a long time so I was not expecting much but was very surprised that they had done a complete overhaul of the entire restaurant including it's menu. The place looks amazing and the food was absolutely delicious. Service was great too. Our waitress really knew the food."

  • "They had problems getting our food out to us but very apologetic. Problems in the kitchen. We were rewarded with a complimentary dessert. We had the special shrimp tacos, the shrimp were cooked perfectly, however there were no condiments served with the tacos such as quacamole, sour cream. The flavors of the sauce was somewhat bland. The dessert was fabulous! We will try it again and I will choose a different entrée next time."

  • "I am thrilled to discover the new Shooters. What a dramatic transformation! The atmosphere and decor are superb! The menu is excellent and the quality of the food is outstanding. It is a great place now for those special occasions or to bring out of town guests who want to eat right on the water."

  • "This was our 4th time since it re-opened. They still need to get their staff & food together. Neither was up to par. Beautiful new place and the views are wonderful! They'll get it together and it will be great again! Fun place with 2 bars inside and a Tiki Bar outside. Happy Hour needs to have better prices & food, too! We'll be back soon!"

  • "Ambience, food and service were outstanding at this recently renovated Florida gem... The furnishings were great and beautiful- as were the re-done patio area- We had a table outside and enjoyed the beautiful view. The boats passing by added to the wonderful overall ambience of the restaurant. The new menu was great- We started with the tuna tartare and salmon tartare- both were delicious and had beautiful presentation. For main dishes, my husband and I had the chopped chicken cobb salad which was one of the best I have had-Our friends had the French dip which was great too. Special mention to our very attentive server Keith Allen who was personable as well. Overall, an enjoyable experience and we will return again soon!"

  • "We had a reservation with Open Table. HA!! We waited 35 minutes to be seated. Finally sat down and the waiter was very nice. Ordered our food and instead of chicken my wife wanted Salmon on her salad. The waiter said that would take longer as they had just opened one week ago. So I guess they hire stupid chefs that can't figure out how to sub salmon for chicken. Waited, waited, waited. Finally complained and the manager came over. Same excuse, we just opened and the kitchen is backed up and he promised the food would be out in five minutes. Told him we will wait five minutes and then if the food was not out we will be leaving. Well he did bring it out himself. WOULD NEVER GO BACK!!!!!"

  • "I have been here twice since the reopening and take over from the Grateful Palate team. The first time was during a weeknight and it was not that busy The food was pretty good and the service attentive so I decided to go back.. My second visit on a weekend night with a larger group at peak time was problematic. The front was overseen by 3 young girls who basically check you in and tell you they will "text" you when your table is ready. After waiting at the bar for 20 minutes with no text, I checked back in with the front only to be told it would be at least another 15 minutes before I could be seated. I ended up being seated about 40 minutes after my reservation as I was just getting ready to go elsewhere. I don't think I'll be back soon."

  • "I want to give Shooters a better review -- the restaurant is beautiful, the setting fabulous, the staff very nice and kitchen accommodating and we will try it again but we were a little disappointed in the food. I had the shrimp and scallop dish - for $31 dollars - 2 scallops (I swear one was cut in half to make it look like 3) and 3 shrimp, my wife had the salmon a bit over cooked. My suggestion is a kitchen quality control person who makes sure that the website dishes look as good in person. It is definitely worth trying again and I'd recommend that you do too."

  • "Music too loud. Roast chicken bland and overcooked, like it had been laying around for a while. Lamb shank cooked right, but without any of the tasty flavoring that it usually gets from slow cooking. Sauce was bland. Not an awful experience, but certainly not rushing back."

  • "The restaurant was redone and is very pretty. Views are spectacular. Menu is limited. The restaurant needs some additional choices or more daily specials. Waiters need additional training. Although service was satisfactory a few of the items came out lukewarm instead of hot. The kitchen needs to address this or the wait staff needs to bring out the orders in a more timely manner."

  • "We dined at Shooters in March of 2014. We had a 6:45 reservation and requested a table by the water which we received. The restaurant is very nice, having just been remodeled. The service was good and we had an enjoyable evening. As with most waterfront restaurants, you are paying for the ambiance. I would rate the food as good, not great for the prices that you pay. With that said, because of the location and atmosphere, I would recommend this restaurant."

  • "Used to be one of our favorite places every time we visit our Fort Lauderdale home. Heard the placed was remodeled and new owners. Had to wait for a table almost an hour even with a reservation. Thought it would have been worth it but unfortunately food and service terrible. I had tuna salad which only consisted of 3 tiny pieces of fatty tuna over greens and awful dressing. Husbands flatbread pizza also pricey small and not good. We will not return!"

  • "but thats about it. re-opened 8 mos ago after massive renovation. sprawling eating areas contributes to waiters being out of breath running to kitchen miles away for food, basic necessities like silverware. No kiosks available in their assigned work station., and they push the flatbread instead ($8), which is essentially pizza so customers are full before theyve ordered the entree. So, we didn't order an entree..... the restaurant loses out again. Bad menu decisions. remove theflatbread, give customers free italian bread like customary, and they will order an entree!"
