Very pleasant dining experience. The restaurant is located in the mall next to cruise boat dealers and the theme is everything-sailing- like looking boat windows, oats and kayaks decorating the walls. The restaurant overall ambience is upscale, contemporary and clean. We were sitting outside by the canal overlooking the expensive-looking boats that the next door dealers are probably selling. I recommend sitting outside on a nice warm day as the ambience is very chill and relaxing. The menu is large and diverse. While there is nothing extremely exotic or super creative, the simple variety of various grilled fish and meats offered by the chef was exactly what we were craving for. I had a grilled grouper , my son had sword fish and my wife had Moroccan-spiced salmon . All fish was fresh, clean and nicely cooked. You could pick from variety of sides - like garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus, green beans etc. The prices were not cheap, but reasonable for the place of this caliber. Overall I recommend I recommend it.
Great location with excellent food and exceptional service.
The atmosphere was very relaxing and the view was great
Omelet station was amazing as were the young been working it.
A few of us got the Bloody Mary bar. It was not a good deal at all. The server brought our check while we were still eating and drinking. We set our credit card down. The server rang it up knowing we weren’t done then refused to give us another drink token because we paid. She should of asked if we wanted another drink. It wasn’t like our bill would of been any higher. One person in our party got the sangria bar. They refused to top it off with seltzer when they had seltzer right there. We spent a good deal certainly didn’t feel like valued customers.
My favorite restaurant in FLD, food amazing, service always friendly, space beautful... a little bit noisy but it worth it!!! Love it
It is a fun and vibrant restaurant. Food was great.
Great service, location and meal!
Nice atmosphere, great and tasty food, decent wines.
Food is very good, super fresh, should not charge for bread
Family loved the food, location and ambiance. Very enjoyable.
Great food and service. Enjoyed the setting! We, Will, Be Back!!
Outdoor sitting is a great choice!
We tried Boatyard on our vacation in Florida, based on a recommendation. Everything was great! It surpassed our expectations. I recommend it to those looking for a nice dinner.
Great place for a special occasion! A bit pricy, but the food was delicious.
Filthy. Bird dropping’s on table and chairs. Had reservation. Walked in and restaurant was empty and told me 20 minute wait.
The only outstanding things at the Boathouse was Ali the bartender and the Bimini Bread. Everything else was just ok, except The Calamari. The Calamari was sad.
I enjoyed my dinner the waitress (robin) was wonderful.. I was able to reschedule no problem..I can’t wait for my next visit
Beautiful place to sit outside by the water and watch the boats. Excellent food and staff.
Ambiance and service was great. The conch fritters were too salty
A vibrant scene but not the spot for a romantic dinner. This restaurant is very loud. Servers appear to be rushed and a bit annoying trying to move guest along. The fish special of the evening was very good!
The parking is problematic and honestly, the restaurant is a bit overrated and I would not race back.
Boatyard is a special treat. Great ambiance and the food is always consistent
Seems some sound baffling would be in order. Difficult to have a conversation even at a 4 top. Food was delicious however and the service was great.
The bartenders Abby and Allie were great!
good food good ambiance and good service but a bit expensive.
Great experience ! My wife loved it and thats all that really matters.
Beautiful atmosphere and delicious food, but if we have a reservation we shouldn’t be told it will be 1.5 hour wait for outdoor seating. Sitting outside should be offered to those who made a reservation. We ate inside obviously and had a great meal.
Best octopus I have ever had!!! Great service and beautiful atmosphere.
Excellent food and great location for dining. Very helpful
We loved the place, it was our first time there. I wish it was closer to us because we drove from Boca
Too much noise I could not hear the people around a small table. T
Once again, Boatyard doesn’t disappoint! Highly recommended!
Food was amazing ! The girl who helped us was very nice , her name is Francesca. S/o to Francesca
Restaurant clean , nice but too crowded and noise level too high
It happened to be Ladies Night, so the place was packed and noisy. I had arranged to meet my son there
for dinner as he happened to be in Florida on business. He was late, and the only waiting area was in the bar area, where it was crowded and wildly (!) noisy, but it was indeed fun to watch the going-on while I waited. Once he arrived and we moved to a quieter area, everything was delightful. Our waitress, the service, and our food selections were all terrific. Worth the trip from Aventura (and for him, from NYC).
A great location. Service was excellent and food wonderful. Eating in the dining room is noisy but other than that it is an excellent place for a wonderful meal.
The food quality was simply unbelievably good. The raw bar on wheels was something I have never seen before- just awesome !!!
Terrific food & service. Sit outside as inside is too noisy. Best seafood in Ft Lauderdale
Our server was fantastic. My only complaint is that I requested a table for 5 instead of 4 and was told that large parties are not accepted. When I arrived, there were lots of availability for large parties so that was a bit confusing and frustrating. Everything else was fantastic.
Most enjoyable lunch experience on the terrace by the canal!
Food was great as always. Service was perfect. Little too much noise, but ok.
Valeted my car and when I returned to the car there was 485.00 cash missing from my travel bag that had been hidden in the back floor. I don't know who had excess the car while I had dinner. Spoke the parking employee and he is sure all rules were followed. Maybe so. I'm still out the cash.
