A little pricey but the food was awesome. We got the grouper and salmon. Would go again. The Candy kiss drink was delish.
Was very noisy, they’ve had better nights.
Had a wonderful dinner and our waiter Donald was fabulous!!!
Service by waitress was the best I have experienced in a very long time!
So much ambiance. Truly unique experience
The food was good, but the service left much to be desired.
Went for Sunday brunch with my daughter and
17 yr old Grandaughter. The egg benedick was made 3 ways your choice and very good. Chicken sandwich was delish. And my daughter had the shrimp roll all was really good. I am looking forward to returning.
Had a reservation at 10:45 was there at 10:50 was rudley told we don’t hold tables it would be 15-30. We had requested outside as we brought our puppy which was in the reservation request. We ended up waiting an 1 hour and 15 minutes before being seated. While waiting we sat outside at one of the sofas and it took 25 mins before any one approached us if we wanted anything.
We requested outside.Told 1st come 1st serve. 45min. wait.Watched 2 empty tables outside for 20min.&30min. before being filled. I believe the tables were saved for people the hostess knew and/or she wanted to fill more tables inside.You are our favorite place to eat because of the outside dining.
A seafood gem in Lauderdale. Living in the Keys we are accustomed to wonderful seafood and Boatyard ranks with the best. The swordfish was the best I have ever had and the salmon with zucchini noodles was scrumptious. This will become a regular stop on our monthly visits to the mainland. Friendly staff. Great outdoor dining on the Seminole River.
Ken is great. Makes experience 110%.
Great place to bring friends and family. Also great bar scene.
This is a very noisy restaurant. Even though our server was great, it took a long time to get our food. The food was very good.
The food was ok. The spices took over the true flavor of the dish. Service was bad. Terry our waiter was very inattentive and had somewhat of an attitude. Also, we arrived early and sat outside at the bar area. Not once were we approached by the bar waitress for drinks or anything else the entire hour we were there. Pretty disappointing experience.
The establishment was beautifully done, but the food was average and overpriced. The server was very nice but very slow. Our reservation was supposed to be 8:15 but we didn’t get sat until 9 and our meal didn’t end until 10:30 and that was only for 2 people.
This place is better for tapas and drinks on the patio. You can’t beat that gorgeous view
Location decor and ambiance was fabulous, right on intercoastal waterway. Service was excellent. Food was good but seems like the chef was trying to hard to be to be creative. Spice encrusted salmon was great except it was too much to have it on a creamy tomato purée. And the s’mores dessert looked great but was a bit tasteless. Simply food cooked superbly would have been better.
Lotsa fun. Menu was great. Waiter had ideas for shareable appetizer, Brussels sprouts. Never thought I would like this. It was terrific.
Great food. Especially the key lime baked Alaska!
When in Florida we make sure we go to the Ft. Lauderdale area just so we can have lunch and dinner at Boatyard. It is truly our favorite restaurant. Love the Bimini bread and the seafood.
I went here to celebrate Valentine’s Day so I’m sure it was busier than normal but the hostess was rude in my opinion. She came off sarcastic and unappreciated of my business. The setting on the other hand was superb. The perfect place to dine if you’re looking for something a bit upscale. The food, although it came out extremely late, was great! As for the manager in duty, he was a nice guy. He adjusted the bill some as compensation for the additional time it took to get our food. All in all...I’d go there again.
A must do on your restaurant bucket list! Can’t wait to go again!
We booked Boatyard for our valentines meal. The restaurant was extremely busy as you would expect but we couldn’t fault it one bit. Staff were extremely friendly and offered great service. The food was outstanding and seeing how busy it was very timely. Great restaurant can’t wait to visit again when next in Fort Lauderdale.
We made a reservation 3 weeks before and requested outside seating for Valentine’s Day. We arrived 7 minutes early and were told to check back in at 6:30. We went back to hostess station at 6:30 and were seated at a table next to the kitchen. After asking the seater for outside and/or a window seat we were told we could wait an hour to an hour half for that seating. My husbands chair was on a loose board and consequently was rolling back and forth. My husband ask for a different table. A man immediately came over and moved us to a different room (quieter) and table. Our waiter Gabriel was very good but super busy. The food was good but not outstanding. We probably will not return.
Took my wife and Daughter for Valentine's Day and had a wonderful time! I would recommend!
Requested to sit outside when made reservations. However was not acknowledged when we were seated. It was Valentine’s Day I didn’t want to make a big deal about it.
The food and the waitress Laura P was excellent!
Excellent flavor mixture.
Fantastic fresh seafood and steaks in a beautiful setting. Robin, our waiter, was superb.
Food, service and outdoor seating was all perfect. Isaac was such a great server.
Had friends visiting from England. The perfect waterside place to take them for a leisurely lunch. I big thanks to our waiters who were very attentive while allowing us lots of time to enjoy ourselves. Highly recommend!
