15th Street Fisheries provided a delicious and reasonable alternative location for Stone Crabs. The crabs were fresh not frozen, and very tasty. The dinner order had 5 large claws and to my surprise I was full by the time I was done. The New England Clam Chowder was smoky and flavorful.

We have been to 15th Street Fisheries several times and always had a good experience before. This time started a little rough, however. The maitre’d was MIA so we waited patiently to be seated. A seemingly harassed waiter eventually directed us to sit in a small crowded room jammed into a corner which proved uncomfortable so we relocated ourselves to the nearly empty main dining room. No problem. Our waiter, Tyler was very helpful and things started looking up. The garlic mashed potatoes that came with my king crab leg was an unappetizing brownish color that was skinned over on top like they had been sitting around awhile; my crab leg was good. My wife’s lobster was also good.
While the overall experience wasn’t bad, it fell short of great because of the details which could be easily rectified. Maybe it was an off night.

Service was a little spotty. Some things were slow coming to table, like bread basket, and waitress did not tell us and kind of disappeared so we could not ask. Bar service mixed. My husband order a Chivas on the rocks and got Chivas and water. I ordered a dirty martini and got a regular martini and sent it back. When I re-ordered a second drink they left the olives out and again it wasn't dirty.

The food was “good”. It was not a meal that you would rave about, but it was certainly not bad. It was just good. However the price was high enough that one would expect it to be exceptional. We were in the upstairs dining area that takes reservations, so I can’t comment on the prices downstairs in the casual area. But upstairs, the cost was easily twice as much as it should have been given the quality of the meal. It was just me and my wife. Between the two of us we had 1 cocktail, 1 shrimp cocktail appetizer, 1 Caesar salad, and two main dishes. Our total cost was close to $140 ( that includes a tip). We believe it was a more like a $70 meal.

I rarely write reviews but after spending an outrageous amount of money for terrible food, I feel I must write one. Six of us decided to come here to celebrate my birthday, the marina is nice but that was about it. We made reservations to dine upstairs with water view, we were seated as far away from the water-view as possible! We ordered drinks, three of us got a glass of wine, as soon as we went to take a sip we smelled dirty dish rag scent on our glasses, so bad that we had to advise the waiter. He smelled it and agreed and got us new drinks although the new ones smelled just as bad. We had to pour our wine into our water glasses. We clearly did not order anymore drinks. THE FOOD ... the soup was room temperature and average, the mussels were average, nothing special. I ordered scallops which must have sat for an extended length of time after they were cooked they were overcooked, extremely salty and room temperature. My husband got a 2lb lobster, the presentation was nice, but it was rubbery and overcooked. We had a salmon dish with a disgusting curry sauce served with a rice that must have been made the day before. The only dish at our table that was somewhat palatable was the filet mignon (go figure, we are at a fish restaurant). The waiter knew we weren't thrilled with our meals and did not offer any remedy. I was very excited about dining here; drove 45 minutes to get here and was hoping for a much better experience. Don't waste your money.

The atmosphere wasn’t great and it smelled old and musty inside. We ate in the dining room upstairs. Maybe the downstairs, which is more casual, is the way to go. We found the upstairs very old and unwelcoming. The food was decent although it all seemed really heavy with a lot of butter etc for a fresh seafood restaurant. Our opinion is there are other much better options to try if you like some atmosphere and more fresh tasting food. I also got the Seabass which was $46 so would have expected better for the price tag!

Birthday dinner. Food is good, ambiance is good, service is pretty great. Clearly a spot for tourists but the bar downstairs felt a bit more local. It's fun to watch the boats on the Intracoastal and the fish feeding near the dock. There was a school of good-sized Crevalle Jacks and a few trout, but I think the water was cool enough that the tarpon had headed back south.

Everything was good except the Mahai. The fish was grey and wet and very old and fishy tasting. I was surprised they put it on the dine out special menu. Thank god by partner ordered off the regular menu and had the grouper. That was perfect. I felt bad he had to eat the rotted fish. Not sure if we will return no knowing if the fish was old for the special or if we may have the same issue in the future.

We had a delicious dinner at this restaurant. When we came in, we sat at the bar for happy hour. The bartenders were very friendly and engaged in conversation with us. After happy hour we were taken to a table upstairs, which was in a small quiet room. Once again, the waitress was very friendly, explained the menu to us, was efficient and we never had to ask for anything! We will definitely be going back on a regular basis.

We had a very enjoyable dinner. The restaurant overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway, so the views are spectacular. We dined on the second floor, so the elevation made the views even prettier. The restaurant is laid out in different rooms and sections, so it would probably be good for groups or private parties. Seems to have a nice bar on the ground floor, but we didn't go in.

We started with conch chowder and New England clam chowder. Both were very good, especially the conch. I had the "Fruits of the Sea" seafood combination: shrimp, mussels, clams, etc. I'm typically not a calamari fan, but it was tender and well prepared. The dish was very good. My wife had the most spectacular looking diver's scallops I've ever seen. They were quite big and PERFECTLY seared on all sides. Typically, you'll see them seared on the tops and bottoms, but they managed to evenly sear the sides as well. My wife said they were the best she'd ever had.

The restaurant is in an "Old Florida" touristy section of Fort Lauderdale, so you get a mixed crowd of guests: some are dressed for elegant dinners, some are in shorts and sandals straight from a boat. Some of the dishes are priced a little high (as was the wine), but you're paying a little extra for the view and the resort environment. Valet parking was complimentary. The place opened in 1978 and has been a staple in Fort Lauderdale ever since.

Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would not hesitate to go back.
