Dined with an incredible waterfront view. Food was delicious. The Fishery salad was so good as well as the grouper.
I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Although we have lived in Ft Lauderdale for 30 years, we were never aware of 15th St Fisheries existence. So happy to have finally found it. We plan on returning again and again. The menu is well rounded with many options for the meat eater as well as the vegetarian. The restaurant sits on the Ft Lauderdale Marina and the views are lovely from most every table. Downstairs is a bit more of a casual/bar feel while upstairs dining is more elegant but not the least bit stuffy and overdone.

The topping on the cake for us was our wonderful waiter, Bill. He was not just congenial but funny, light, most importantly did his job superbly. He was always right there when you needed him and accommodating in every way. He and his service made the evening an additional pleasure.

Absolutely would recommend 15th St Fisheries to friends.

The last time we were there was in 1989 celebrating the purchase of our first house.
Went there last night for my birthday. Sat upstairs overlooking the water. Our server was Bill. He was phenomenal!!!! He made our experience so enjoyable. The jalapeño biscuits were very good. I highly recommend the conch chowder to start. My wife had the salad with shrimp, slivered pecans, and strawberries with the awesome chutney dressing. I had the swordfish with crab rice. Soooo delicious. For my birthday Bill gave me a chocolate sundae with chocolate crunchies on top.
All in all it was a great experience. We will be back soon. You have to ask for Bill as your server. You’ll be glad you did

Overall we enjoyed our food and service BUT even with a reservation we were first seated at an inside table with no view then when I asked for a better table we were given one where I was given a very limited side view of the water. Disappointing view good food and service.

This restaurant came highly recommended to us and we were a bit disappointed. The food was OK, nothing spectacular and not particularly fresh (Grouper and Cobia). Our server was excellent and perfectly attentive. We thought that we just hit an off night but a couple next to us also commented that the food was not up to snuff for them either. Not sure we’ll try this one again…

The ambiance is very relaxing the moment you walk thru or across the deck with the koi pond. Service is professional and timely. Our three course meal was fantastic and although the portion were okay but could have been more. The view of the bayside was beautiful and excellent for romantic evening. Definitely will revisit.

Paying for the view more than anything. Food was amazing though. But didn’t like to be seated in the private dining room just for the view with another big party of 10+ people that were very intoxicated and loud

Experience was great!
We ate in the upstairs restaurant.
The food was amazing!! The wine selection is good as well to fit different levels and very palatable.
Our waitress was great as well, very patient, had knowledge of the food being served as well as the preparation and when we asked to change the course that came with the fish, made great recommendation, we did not feel rushed even though we asked a number of questions about the different dishes and the wine. The deserts were really well prepared, very appealing and delicious.
The ambiance was great, it was not crowded, felt private even though we were in the middle of the floor, noise level was low.
Overall a great experience and will absolutely go back.

The food was very delicious! We had the Fisheries Salad (very crispy and flavourful) and Crab cakes (crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, very delicious) for our appetizer. My husband had the Shrimp Scampi (very flavourful) and I had the Herb Roasted Chicken (very moist, tender and flavourful) for our main course.. Our severs Alvin and Bill were very knowledgeable about the menu and very attentive. My husband and I dined there for our anniversary and we received a card (which was a nice surprise) and a free dessert. We will definitely be dining there again!

The location and overall ambiance is really nice. The food was ok but lacked flavors expected from the rich south Florida seafood scene. Did not feel like fine Dinning and nighttime Dinning makes so sense as you cannot enjoy the intercostal view.

I also put in a request to acknowledge my anniversary. It was noted on the reservation but the server did not acknowledge it.

Wednesday is half priced bottle day, so go mid week and get a bottle. The calamari is done nicely, and a proper portion for two to share. The Fisheries Salad is a meal on it’s own.
Only dissatisfaction was with the Fish. We ordered the pan seared cobia. The fish was way over cooked. The Peach cream sauce with it was amazing, but I wouldn’t have expected the fish to be so poorly done on a slow night (Weds)

Even with a 7 PM reservation we had to wait at the bar for 25 minutes until the bartender went and checked out why we were not seated yet. If she didn’t inquire at the time we might have stayed at the bar for a longer wait to be seated.Outside of that circumstance it was a very pleasurable dining experience. We look forward to having a wonderful meal there again

Did upstairs dining and will never go back. The only thing good was the shrimp cocktail and the dessert. Shrimp and grits were drowning in maple syrup and unpalatable. Labster mac and cheese was just ok. The whole top was top was dried out. Husband got the miss glazed sea bass. It came out looking burnt. The fish was dry, bland, and disgusting. The butternut squash polenta side was cold and tasted of u cooked cornmeal. Then they switched it with thr grouper and that was ok but fish still dry and bland. Definitely not worth the price we paid for dinner for 3. Would not recommend going there for dinner. And if you do try the downstairs cause the upstairs is horrible. Server was great and the dessert was awesome but that's it.

Always enjoy the water views w/ lots of boats or yachts going by & love the white table cloths upstairs to make for a more upscale feeling. You can sit outside, downstairs at the docks but no res. there. You may need a reservation for indoors on busy nights or must wait anywhere from 5-10 min to maybe an hour for outside or inside. Enjoyed the food. Tuna tataki & a vegetarian squash dish gor me King Crab for hubby w/ a refreshing Arnold Palmer w/ pink lemonade. Waiters were very attentive, friendly & happy to serve. One of our go to places in town !!!

Lovely lovely intimate birthday dinner with my hubby!

The food is amazing!
The ambiance amazing!
Staff amazing

The only disappointment is I made reservations for 9pm and I didn't know that the good view was only from downstairs and they close at 9! upstairs is nice but I wanted to be closer to water and I think downstairs is much better feel.

Other than that this place is perfect! I will definetely be back! Before 9 tho :)

Eat here for an outstanding experience. Bill did a fine job of recommendations for our requests and we appreciated how his choices were not the go-to priciest dishes on the menu. His recs. did not disappoint us. There is a nice ambience at the upstairs dining area. As a customer of this restaurant for the past decade, I was able to introduce 15th to my fiancé. We will be back many, many more times!
