Amanda, the redhead :-) was a fabulous waitress! Request her if you can. It was a beautiful night waterside and we felt so lucky to get a table outside. The wine was chilled to perfection, flatbread was delicious and lobster salad is awesome.

Great location looking out to the waterway. Excellent service with attention to customer concerns. Food arrived in a reasonable amount of time and was delicious. Except for the slightly noisy table nearby, it was an overall lovely dining experience.

Shooters has always been one of our favorite restaurants on the water. It has a wonderful menu, great ambience, polite caring servers and it truly encapsulates the quintessential South Florida waterside dining experience. I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn’t had the opportunity to experience It yet.

We had our 1 year Wedding anniversary here it was such a beautiful atmosphere from the outside seating to the inside. We sat outside by the dock and it was romantic and beautiful. Our drinks, food and desert was delicious. They also served us complimentary champagne for our Anniversary which was so nice! Definitely would recommended to anyone

The terrace on the canal is always beautiful! My cashew crusted mahi was good although somewhat overcooked which made it a little dry.

Been here before, will probably come again - but this week’s experience was much below average. From the host desk reporting us as to Open Table as no-shows, to the misinformation about what items qualify for happy-hour, to the food description leaving out important ingredients—way too hot!—and no one offering even a free cup of coffee as a compensatory gesture, this was not a typical pleasant evening at Shooters.

Food was average at best service was very slow on a not very busy Monday. Our server was forgetful. Brought wrong bottle of wine. Forgot a glass, got tired of waiting to bring another glass so finally went to the bar and got one myself.

We are staying close to Shooters so it was only a short walk away but we would happily have driven there after our meal. We had a table close to the Intracoastal with live music. The restaurant was busy but the service was excellent and the food was first rate. Altogether a great evening out.

The energy and ambiance is exceptional, I truly loved the light breeze off the water and vibe. The menu was ok somehow I remembered it from a previous visit 2017 to be that much more.....

The waitress Dianne I think was here name was super attentive and really nice, what the menu was lacking the drinks, scenery and service made up for. I would however saying pricing could be way better for the 'pickings served' it was tiny compare to other dining. Andddddd hold off on the salt please its already seafood (Mahi curry something) was NOT good, just edible. I am not one to send back food so I bared through it and ate the meal.

We had a great time. The only issue was that my salmon was way under cooked. The waiter never made it back to the table to check on us so that I could let him know, but a manager passed by and after getting her attention, she was excellent in correcting the problem, the food was superb. The odd thing is that my waiter came back eventually but never acknowledged or apologized for the problem, maybe he never knew.
