    The crab cakes were very good, the lobster bisque was not hot, luke warm. My steak was was warm but my wifes entire plate was cold. The yorkshire pudding was like it was served from the fridge. Her prime rib was cold. Same for the baked potato. Even after returning her meal, the only thing that was hot was the baked potato!

    Our food was spectacular. Our assistant waiter, Jay was absolutely the service savior. He was phenomenal and saved this visit in regard to service. Brin the lead server was over her head and it was not that busy. Not to mention she was rude to Jay! He saved her and the evening for me and my son who were visiting for the Dolphins home opener.

    We booked an ocean view & table at Shula's for our 33rd Anniversary. We were greeted at dinner with 'happy anniversary' and a glass of sparkling wine & strawberry...so far so good. We both ordered 12oz prime rib medium rare with Yorkshire pudding. (being from England we considered this a piece of home). We also ordered 3 sides, fries, asparagus and mushrooms. The food was served, the streak looked amazing, a great cut but overcooked, grey throughout and tough. The Yorkshire pudding tasted like a cinnamon roll, asparagus was burnt and everything tasted of sugar and cinnamon. When the maître d came over and asked, we told him. He did take the cost of steak off the bill but to be honest, that does not make it right, it ruined our evening.

    I have been using Open Table for five years and confess that I have never written a review, but thanks to the reviews of others I have always had an enjoyable dining experience, until now. The hostess was slow to seat us in spite of reservation and the waiter was attentive, but distracted. Specifically he brought the wrong bottle of wine and then when he brought the correct bottle, he poured it into the water glass, which he had previously filled with water. Food quality was mediocre and somewhat bland. This will be my one and only visit to this restaurant.

    Wonderful experience . Only disappointment,our waiter tried to sell us a wine we had not ordered. We requested a 2010 RR. He brought us a 2012 (lower quality ) at the same expensive price And assuming we did not know much about wine, told us it was the same. Otherwise ,steaks perfect. Great view.

    The service was some of the worst I've ever had. We were visiting Fort Lauderdale from out of town and went to Shula's with a group of 4 for a nice dinner, expecting to pay for good food and service. The food was delicious, steaks came out perfect temperature and everything seasoned well. Our server on the other hand was non existent most of the night and when she was at our table her attitude was rude and demanding. Dirty plates would sit for 20+ minutes before being taken away. After we finished our meal the bill didn't come for 32 minutes!! I always leave 20%-30% tips but it was appalling that a restaurant of this level had this terrible of service.

    Our poor waiter was so frazzled as he was the only waiter - you think with the super moon management would have amped up the staff It's just that when you pay $300.00 (including tip) for dinner for two you just expect something - it just didn't happen

The view was beautiful (even though it was dark) and the food and wine was delicious. Would DEFINITELY recommend to friends and family. We will be back very soon.

    I had heard some good stuff but fell below my expectations. At their price point I had hopes for a high quality meal. Pros Very scenic view-I'm sure great for outdoor cocktails Their bread was warm and best part of meal They offer a decent $35 pre fixe menu Great lobster bisque soup Cons Their Cowboy Ribeye was a little dry and too much marbling-ie fat Cocktails watered down

    Okay restaurant, way over priced. $47 for a steak $9 for a vegetable and $9 for a potato is a way to much to spend on a dinner that was just okay. I was expecting the steak to be out of this world flavorful but it was not. Average tasting food, over the top prices.

    As usual the cuisine was excellent. The Cowboy Ribeye Oscar is simply the best. The steak was cut to excellence and prepared perfectly medium. The server, Clement is ALWAYS a pleasure and is the only waiter that prefer when dining here. I usually visit Shula's On the Beach two or three times a year. I have never had a bad experience at this place.

    We arrived around 10am for brunch. The restaurant had a choice of buffet or ordering ala carte from the menu. We opted for the menu. It took 20 minutes before the server took our order even though the restaurant was fairly empty and most everyone in restaurant were opting fir Buffett. The food came about 30 minutes later. The eggs Benedict and omelet were way overlooked. Getting the check took another 20 minutes . Would definitely not recommend this restaurant. Even though we had $30 to spend each morning for breakfast because of hotel status we opted to not return since the experience was so bad.

    We've been here about 4 times before and the service is consistently poor.. We only come back because the food is always excellent. But we won't go back anymore. The restaurant was extremely slow - only 2 other tables occupied inside and about 8 outside. There were at least 3 wait staff. We asked for ice water with lemon & when the food server brought it without lemon we asked for them. He replied it wasn't his responsibility & we have to ask our waiter, which we did a 2nd time. After our 1st course was served, we had to wave our arms to "flag down" our waiter as he was busy socializing with the attractive hostess and would never look in the direction of our table. After the 3rd request, he brought us our lemons. Not going back ever!

    My family and I went to Shula's on the beach and were immediately impressed at the ambiance. It really is a beautiful location; I wish I was as impressed with the quality of dining. You have a certain expectation when you pay the prices of these meals, but the ends didn't justify the means. My wife ordered a steak that was over cooked and her lobster tail was rubber and tasteless. My steak was better, but still over cooked and if it hadn't been for the blue cheese crumbles I ordered, I don't think the meat would have been desirable either. The shinning light was my sister-in-law's scallops which were "divine". The service, however, was dull listless and the waiter didn't seem to know what was on the menu. I wish it was better.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 7/4/2014
    If you want a nice, simple, well executed dining experience, Shulas is it. The food was done well and the service was pleasant and very professional. If there was only one thing I felt could be improved, I would say to maybe offer a couple different ccuts of steak that were "Prime" grade. Although my steak was prepared perfectly as I asked, it was a little tough and I could taste the "less than best" quality in the flavor of the meat. Black Angus is not what restaurants make it to be. It only a marketing ploy. Offer a great tasting Prime Grade steak and let your diners decide. The Key Lime Pie was as good as any I've ever had!! Overall, very nice dinner.

    The food was good. We had salad and a good steak. I was disappointed that I found a rolled up piece of plastic in my Shulas House Salad. I showed the waiter and he said he would take it back to the kitchen and show them. I also told the Metradee and he asked if I told the waiter and I said yes. I was surprised that money wasn't taken off for the plastic in my salad and also noting was done for our 45 wedding anniversary which the waiter knew about ahead of time because I wrote it in my E mail ahead of time.

    Dined here on a Saturday Night with a reservation. The waiter was helpful. The wine list was electronic, very frustrating to use since they need to get the bugs out. One unit froze, the other locked out and required a password. We finally managed to get wine on order. Paper list as a back up would be suggested! The food was good, but nothing over the top when compared to other steak houses.

    Visited Shula's on Ft Lauderdale Beach for a birthday celebration, and the event was most pleasurable. First of all, our server, Nicole, was the epitome of professionalism and friendliness, providing terrific service and conversation! She is a definite asset to the restaurant! The BBQ shrimp appetizer and the scallop entree were presented beautifully and were delicious. The cowboy steak was cooked to perfection. The surprise of the night was the complimentary chocolate lava dessert given to us because of my husband's birthday. A very nice touch! We plan to revisit soon and of course, look forward to sitting in Nicole's area again.
