Just a delight as usual. You can’t beat the views and the food and service are first rate. Upstairs is always my choice for a nice night out.

Great service and can’t be the view of the Intercostal. Everything tasted fresh, recommend the Mussels and Lobster. Can’t wait to come back.

This is the new and improved 15th Street Fisheries. The place has been cleaned up and remodeled. Even the food is better. It’s a decent meal at an affordable price. Lots of fun to be by the intercoastal.

We had the pleasure of eating Dockside. The food was actually a meal to remember. Definitely the best of our trip and we were in town awhile. It was the kind of seafood I was in search of. Super fresh and simple. Our waiter, John was charming and the desserts were maybe the best I've ever had. Not kidding.

Family was in town for a visit. They wanted a great place on the water close to the airport. I knew exactly where I was taking them! 15th Street Fisheries is always one of the top options for Fort Lauderdale. The food is excellent!! Doesn’t matter if you’re eating upstairs or downstairs. Upstairs is fine dining and downstairs is just delicious! They are located right on the water and the views are breathtaking. They are always busy so I recommend reservations but not needed. Enjoy the bar or the marina while you wait. Just go.

Place is on a great location but the service upstairs wasn’t great, the waiter seemed overwhelmed, had to wait a while for a second round of cocktails and to be honest the food was a disappointment. My fish was good but the rice and sauce way too salty. My boyfriend ordered the filet mignon medium well and it was very WELL done and tough. Maybe I’ll try downstairs which I wasn’t aware is a different kitchen. If you visit this place just know upstairs is a different kitchen and menu than downstairs.

This is one of our favorite places to eat! The food is fantastic and so is the atmosphere! We usually take the water taxi to and from the restaurant to add to the experience. A few in our party had gluten allergies and the restaurant was extremely accommodating. We will continue to visit here every time we are in town!

Food, service and view was amazing! We were in a back room so it was very quiet and socially distanced. My only complaint was that we took the water taxi and they told us we would get a discount if we showed our tickets and the restaurant said they didn’t give a discount. I also had a discount card from our hotel for a free appetizer or dessert and we were only able to get one small sorbet.

Hostess told us upstairs was backed up when we arrived for our reservation and that they would call us when they were ready. Ok, no problem. Went to look at the tarpons for a while then back to the front and we sat and sat. Then we noticed newly arriving parties were sent straight up, so after the 2nd one, i asked what was up with ours. They had totally forgotten... food & ambience were nice though. Been there multiple times during the day which was always great. This was the first dinner reservation & didn’t work out that well. Hopefully just a once in a while hick up.

We had dinner - and a lunch here - during our week-long visit to Ft Lauderdale. Great service, food and drinks. Everything we ordered, including lobster and crab legs, was well done! Lunch on the deck outside capped off our week. Also good merch if you need a remembrance of the area. No reservation necessary for lunch. We will be back!

The worst snapper dish I’ve ever had fried to the point you couldn’t even cut through it with a fork. Service was indifferent and the whole ambience was cold and plain.

I advised when I booked that it was our 20th wedding anniversary and that I wanted the perfect view!!! Our table had a Happy Anniversary card at the table and we received an anniversary dessert. Our view was perfect and service was great!! Food was delicious!!! I highly suggest this place for a romantic night out!

Enjoyable dinner. Tough to get seats outside but we sat at the window on the second floor and could see a school of small tarpon fish swimming around the docked boats. Always skeptical about seafood but a few of us had the swordfish-which tasted super fresh and was juicy even if the slice was not very thick. We enjoyed the shrimp and grits as appetizers along with the calamari ( I would suggest you do not need to put grated cheese on the fried calamari)

Great views & even better food! Waiter (Pete) worked hard to make it a great experiment, too.
Recommend: add some fresh bread to accompany those PEI muscles- that broth is way too delicious to send back!
