What a fabulous restaurant! The ambiance, food, cocktails are incredible! One of our absolute favorite restaurants.
Food was mediocre at best. The shrimp scampi was pasta with butter sauce and boiled shrimp on top. Service was great though.
We were in town visiting family and had dinner with another couple. The service was phenomenal. Our server, Bri, was absolutely lovely and super helpful. The food was delicious. We had ceviche and calamari for starters. The ceviche was to die for!The calamari was fresh and perfectly fried. Two of us had the paella and it’s seriously the best I’ve had. My husband had the grouper and very much enjoyed it. Another person had the shrimp scampi and also raved about how good it was. Overall, a delicious meal, wonderful service and a great ambiance.
I was quite skeptical as I had noticed the restaurant seemed understaffed - even if it was, I noticed the staff was experiencing a dinner rush and was impressed with how well composed everybody worked. It was, as if, everyone was working in unison. As someone who has much experience within the food industry, it is always amazing to see such great and consistent service even during a rush.
The food was just right. It was great to see the open kitchen, the line cooks, and chefs working well together; along with seeing the expeditors controlling the momentum extraordinarily. Thank you for such an amazing service.
Took an hour and 15 minutes to get our meal.
Great service but limited food selection.
Being from Texas, this was by far the best restaurant we ate at during our visit to Florida. It was a great experience. The ambiance is very welcoming and charming. Amazing cocktails, food and service. Staff was extremely knowledgeable and made great recommendations.
I was there celebrating my Birthday and the food was delicious, my server was polite and help me choose the perfect meal , but the restaurant it self was very noisy, and very busy servers were running back and forth. People at the bar was louder than the music playing. All and all I enjoyed my meal very much.
Always great and flavorful food. Service was particularly good and they handled food allergies flawlessly.
Food as always good and we had a nice bottle of chardonnay. Our waitress however was disappointing which is first time in coming here
We were seated by the window facing the water. Forgot our banana bread appetizers. Came by very infrequently. Decided to try the banana bread as dessert. Said would bring us plates which never happened.
Really great experience with great food! We all enjoyed our meals and the view for brunch! Our waiters were outstanding!!
Protein in Paella a bit dry; green beans so blistered they were black, covered with a cloyingly sweet sauce; waitress took green beans off the bill as she agreed they were not up to par; cocktails good and would return for happy hour and bar atmosphere but food just ok.
Great night and wonderful dinner. Our Filty Cosmos were great and oysters and calamari was delicious. I ordered paella, my daughter the shrimp scampi with orzo and the men skirt steaks. All the dinners were flavorful and amazing. Great table with the view of the water and a wonderful waitress that was attentive all night. I also appreciated the dessert that was offered for my birthday. Nice evening.
Make a reservation well in advance you will not be disappointed.
We made a reservation for Wednesday lunch and got our request to sit by the water fulfilled. Service was quick and friendly. We had octopus for appetizer and I had Grilled Mahi and main course with citrus butter (extra). All very yummy and served in reasonably good portions and time. A pleasant experience all around.
My favorite restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, the best paella, excellent service and ambiance!
Boatyard is an excellent dining experience with attentive service and well prepared food by quality chef.
Went on a Sunday evening (6:30pm) with my boyfriend and they told us they don’t have anymore crab legs and lobster…. I don’t understand how you run out if your a seafood restaurant? I was very disappointed. I got the steak instead it was okay, my boyfriend got the yellowtail tuna and he said they was very bland. They didn’t season it. Definitely wouldn’t go back.
OUr server was exceptional. I don't remember his name
Very good food and service.
We ordered the octopus, the paella and the creme brûlée. Everything was delicious!! The beer is served ice cold, they bring you a fresh cold glass every time you order one. Prices are reasonable and the service is excellent.
The noise level was disturbing inside so we asked to go outside the speakers were outside too and we asked where we could avoid the painful music the hostess arranged to turn off the speakers in our area and thus we had a beautiful dinner with lovely breeze off the water and enjoyed our conversation along with the good food
Delicious food, amazing ambiance and great service.
Food was great, service great...bathrooms dirty and bug, small flies and mites around table...needs a good spray down....
Food is delicious!
We have been here many time and we like it very much
This time the food was not as good as usual
The burger was too greasy!
My lunch at Boatyard was the best part of my recent trip to Ft. Lauderdale. My server Carlos was amazing, the food was lovely, and the music was excellent. All in all, this was a great dining experience and I will absolutely return the next time I am in the area.
FOOD AND SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT.
LOVED THE ROUND TABLE IN THE BACK ROOM. THE BACK ROOM IS MUCH QUIETER THAT THE REST OF THE RESTAURANT.
My burger came out uncooked 2 x. The service was not great. The atmosphere was nice.
The staff are very nice! Clean spot. Great place to take your family
Beautiful beautiful back patio we had an amazing meal . The food was fabulous.
Our waitress was great and we really enjoyed the atmosphere. The queso appetizer was delicious! Our complaint was we ordered steak and got Chimichurri sauce and i don’t know what we got but it wasn’t sauce. We received what seemed to be more like a slaw and not sauce. The waitress was great and noticed we weren’t happy with it and brought out something else and took the charge for the sauce off our bill.
Our server Francesca fabulous
My husband and I have been patrons of this restaurant since 1991 when was originally called Bimini Boatyard. It has a special meaning for us, where we shared many memories. Food is delicious as always. Our server last night Isabela from Peru is the best. She knows how to treat a guest and gave us a superb service. The food last night was lacking in flavor for me. My husbands steak was a perfection but my Salmon was a tad overcooked and it lacked seasoning. That could be because I asked for it to be medium-well done.
The tablet TabIT payment system is unsightly to see, unreliable and annoying to a guest.
Apart from that, we happy and will definitely come back.
Excellent vibes excellent waitress food is greasy drinks awesome will definitely visit again.
Cory was fantastic. Super knowledgeable about the menu and friendly!
Unbelievable food and service- can’t wait to go back!
The food was simply fabulous! Each of my group had the lobster or crab legs along with their entree and all of us were blown away. I personally had the shrimp scampi and it was beyond delicious. We also had the Apple Tart and the Smore desserts which were fantastic.
If we had been staying another night in Ft. Lauderdale, we would have gone back to The Boatyard the very next night again!
Excellent service and entrees.
We were in town for my mother’s birthday. Food and service were Amazing. The waitress and staff were very attentive and pleasant.
Would definitely go the next time I was in town.
