A short drive or Uber from our hotel.. i ordered the pan seared scallops which were wonderful. Everyone in my group enjoyed their meals. The atmosphere was enjoyable. The service was great. I recommend reservations if planning to sit inside. Outside seating is available however there will be a wait since there are no reservations for outside seating. Definitely would go again.
Exceptional food and great service. Sit outside and dine, it is a wonderful experience.HIGHLY recommend this restaurant.
Took my father, mother and daughter to celebrate Veteran’s Day for lunch. It was awesome as usual!
Brunch was nice!
This was a wonderful restaurant! The server was Brian and he was very attentive! The food was delicious!!
The food was some of the best we ever had. We both ordered the Cesar salad and grilled Mahi Mahi just absolutely wonderful. We shared a desert that was a kind of Bake Alaska and Key lime pie again the best. Has a wonderful view of the outside and service was top notch. This was our first time here and we will definitely be back.
Boatyard offered friendly service from the bar to servers. Top quality food and drinks at a reasonable price. Will definitely return.
Sat outdoors. Great ambiance. Delicious Ahi Tuna, mashed potatoes, and specialty martinis.
1 year anniversary
Wonderful experience! The waitress could not have been nicer nor more patient with us. The food was excellent from start to finish and the atmosphere was incredibly pleasant. Everything about our experience was fabulous. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Alex, our server was exceptional. He came over to the table just enough to check in on us throughout our meals. He also made it a point to make recommendations to us of different items on the menu. Definitely recommend the calamari as an appetizer, the yellowfin tuna for dinner, and the apple tart or the mango cheesecake for dessert.
Great service, great ambiance, great food. Couldn’t ask for more.
Found this on Open Table and hit the jackpot! Being in Florida we stuck with the seafood and it did not disappoint. My Mahi Mahi was grilled to perfection. Moist, flaky, and so fresh! My friend's Spicy Salmon with golden raisins and pistachios equally perfect. Conch fritters were flavorful, but cooked a bit too long so it was easier to break them apart by hand, then cut them. Minty melon cocktail could have used a bit more jalapeno to give it some bite, same for the conch sauce. Will definitely return as it was very good. Lunch for two with two drinks and an app came to $96.
Anniversary. We let them know in advance that it was our 29th wedding anniversary. We chose this restaurant to celebrate. There was a card to the waitress on the table that we accidentally saw letting her know but NOTHING was said or done. I requested a cupcake or dessert to celebrate even if we had to pay and still nothing. Sigh dissapointing
Great atmosphere, especially outdoor seating. Wonderful view. Great service by Natalie. Food was outstanding. Great for special occasions
Great atmosphere outside. Have always enjoyed the experience. A must visit while in Fort Lauderdale!
Delicious raw cart. Excellent menu options. Great service.
My husband and I made reservations. After ordering appetizers we had some friends that joined us. Our waitress was so nice about the additions. She was very animated and on top of everything. The seafood cart was awesome. The food was amazing. Great experience all the way around. Will definitely return.
Superb food and service.
Both the service, drinks and food were fabulous. Very generous portions, fresh seafood and the chocolate dessert was amazing.
We had the best waitress and food experience. If it were a little cooler after the boat show we would have sat outside which would be an even better experience. The food was excellent and the traveling raw bar was an added bonus.
The loudest restaurant I’ve ever been to. Had to yell to be heard and it wasn’t completely full.
I had requested a table outside, when we arrived, I was told that there would be a 30 minute wait for a 7:30 reservation to sit outside.
We choose to sit inside because of the additional wait time, which was so noisy we could barely talk to one another.
An anchor restaurant for the 17th street of Ft. Lauderdale. Ticks all the boxes ....every single time!
Always a fantastic time! It was a bit loud, but that was to be expected with the FLL Intl Boatshow underway! Great service
This place has delicious food and awesome ambiance. Great place for seafood! The drinks are good too. Go there to have an incredible dinner with your favorite person.
Always good! Food never disappoints.
Great ambience and fantastic food
Setting was beautiful and drinks great. Food was very poor I eat at very excellent restaurants and have no problem with expense if food is fresh and of good quality. This place was ridiculously expensive and for terrible food! The moving seafood bar was very good but the price of the stone crabs were so over the top for little meat!
The service was so great that it made that it helped with the overall experience! I’m sorry I have to be so negative but people should know! I say go for drinks and a few apps and by pass the dinner!! ML
We ordered the grilled octopus for an appetizer. More potatoes, kale (?), and oil, with measly amount of octopus. The snapper was the best I’ve had in awhile, as was the cole slaw (with slivered almonds, golden raisins).Rain chased us inside for dessert; crepe brûlée and Key Lime Baked Alaska.
Extremely loud inside so we sat outside to have our meal. The service and food was fine. Too many smokers (cigar and cigarette) on the dock meant that several of the tables next to the dock seems like they were in a smoking section. When we walked back through the inside on our way out it was deafening and overcrowded.
Once again we were so pleased with our meal, service and especially the location of our table. We always prefer to be seated outside on the deck and luckily it was available this time. We certainly were very pleased with our dinner entrees of salmon and scallops along with a side of shrimp, but we started out with a pound of beautiful, outstanding and delicious STONE CRABS. There is nothing better other than the service that we received from Tiffany. Thank you for making out night so enjoyable.
Fresh seafood and great service are the “lure” here. Noise decibel level is high so be prepared to shout on a busy night. Go for the simple preparations. They have a tendency to use too much sauce and too much salt (such as the newer version of the Bronzino and shrimp entree). But overall it’s one of my favorite places for fresh fish. Blackened Mahi-Mahi is incredible and the Octopus app is fabulous.
Tuesday nights bottles of wine under $100 are half off!!!
The food was very good. The Paella, a test of the chef's creativity , was a tasty variety of seafood on a bed of rice, not merely rice with little meat mixed in. However, an interior design devoid of sound-absorbing materials exacerbated by loudspeakers blaring the incessant pounding of a demented drummer produced a noise level that spoiled the meal.
Great dining experience! We were there twice in the last month. Sat outside both times & we loved everything about it. The food is excellent & the outdoor atmosphere is outstanding. Can’t wait to go back😀
We always enjoy dining at Boatyard. Service is always good with a very friendly staff.
great seafood in wonderful location with excellent service
Food was excellent and we were looking for a place with excellent food: so 100%!
We had requested a table with a view... didn’t get that :(
But the service was great and we had a great time. After dinner we toured the deck area: next time we are sitting outside!
The food was good, The usual tuna tacos and octopus were very good as they usually are, the entrées were just meh. The service left something to be desired, we had to keep looking for our server every time we wanted something including our check, which we finally had to have another server take care of us.
This place is fun and the food is delicious. wood fire makes all the difference. Appetizers are memorable but the entrees, all that i have had are excellent. the Fish is fresh and food the raw bar is terrific, and the beef competes with the more expensive steak houses.
The outside bar is a special casual treat.
The fish is always fresh and expertly prepared by the chef! The blackened mahi sandwich was fabulous
