With its prime location in the epicenter of the Yachting Capital of the world, Boatyard is Fort Lauderdale’s premier new waterfront dining destination, offering an upscale, nautical-chic vibe in a sophisticated, laid-back atmosphere. With an ‘Eat Local, Be Coastal’ philosophy, the restaurant features an eclectic, seafood-centric menu that blends the freshest daily catches with the highest-quality raw bar and shellfish selections and premium cuts of meat, all thoughtfully prepared with locally sourced ingredients for patrons to enjoy inside, outside or dockside. Vibrant and sophisticated, where marina views abound, Boatyard’s dockside patio lounge provides a prime view of the Intracoastal and the perfect setting to grab a bite or drinks in the company of friends while enjoying an afternoon or evening watching the boats cruise by. Add to that an open kitchen, expansive raw bar cart and private event spaces, and the ultimate waterside dining experience is complete.

    I had the Crab Cake Benedict. It was a very very small crab cake, about 1/4" thick and about 3" across. Not much crab, it wasn't breaded or anything, and it didn't add anything to the benedict. The english muffin wasn't toasted. A little toasting, goes a long way.

    All was just average. My fresh Grouper was over cooked and very dry. It was too bad because it did have a good flavor. The forgot my side so I had to ask and it came after I had eaten the fish and Spinach. We had plenty of room at the table and the area was fine. Too bad about the food.

    We used to go to this restaurant when it was known as Bimini Boatyard. Now it is just Boatyard and the food is delicious. There are quite a few variations available for beef, fish, and my favorite, the pork tenderloin with cashew rice. I highly recommend this restaurant, but probably not for kids unless they eat like adults

    I have been to this restaurant about 3-4 times in the past year and with each experience, it appears the experience has progressively gotten worse. We went and called ahead to ask about my guest's specific dietary needs and was assured that they would have a separate menu and additionally they can make the adjustments as needed. When we got there we asked for the menus and were told they would get them then after waiting we were told the menus would need to be printed but our waiters should be able to let us know which items can be consumed. The waiter tried his best but stated he was aware there were menus and not sure why they would say he would know but all he could do was ask about each item which he had to do one by one. When he went to the kitchen to find out from the chef they had one or two items they could answer but he stated they would say directly which created a back-and-forth nuisance. Then when food items came out they were old or missing items. I am really saddened that this place has made a turn as it was one of my favorite spots to go and recommend.

    Beautiful ambiance and excellent service. Staff was professional and friendly. We had fresh raw oysters, fried calamari, snapper, salmon, seafood paella, and tenderloin steak. All parties enjoyed their appetizers and dinners. This was our second visit. We look forward to going back next time we are in town.

    Food was ok, definitely not a good value. The biggest reason for my negative review of the Boatyard was their below average Valet operation out front. Drop off was fine, but upon leaving, the valet left our car outside of the covered drop off/pickup area and it was pouring down rain. Not to mention, there was a traffic tie up in the mist of all of this that I had to contend with, not the valet. I reluctantly paid their minimum fee just to get my car, walk my wife out in the rain and leave. A very average evening to say the least.
