    Service was super slow. Drinks took a long time to get. Round 2 even longer. Appetizers took longer to get and it was just oysters and a sushi role.

    My fiancé and I were visiting from Jax and I asked an Uber driver for recommendations for a brunch place for the following Sunday morning and without hesitation he blurted out “shooters” it was like he didn’t even need to hear me finish the question bc he just knew it was absolutely incredible. So I immediately went online and made our reservation. I’m so glad we decided to follow his recommendation because the vibe, the food, the bottomless mimosas, sitting right on the water, it was all amazing. The staff was very good too, super friendly, & attentive. We will definitely be returning the next time we find ourselves in Ft Lauderdale.

    We made a reservation in advance and I'm very glad we did! We had two kids and two seniors, so reservations were paramount. I did not realize how much of an elevated dining experience this would be compared to some of the other restaurants around. The menu offered an eclectic blend of different types of cuisines, but it was tough to really identify this as a "seafood restaurant," a "sushi restaurant," or "Mediterranean restaurant," etc. when you have such a mixture. In some establishments, that could show signs of a struggle with the place's identity, but Shooter's seems to embrace that ambiguity. Service was good. Food and drinks came out at a good pace as well. Everything for our order was correct, and our party had a good experience. This was a bit pricier than I originally thought, but it was not exorbitantly expensive. If you're looking for a modern dining experience with a good location on the water, this would be a good fit.

    A must visit restaurant if you’re in the area. One of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to. Absolutely love it. Only issue I had was the steak. It didn’t have the quality of a $49 steak. More of a Applebees steak. But other than that this restaurant is really awesome. I’m visiting Fort Lauderdale again in November and I’m definitely bringing the other couples there.

    Nothing was done as asked. My cake was brought out still in the box with 2 tiny candles on it. My candles were not permitted even tho we were seated outside near WATER. My cake came out while we were sitting in a dark dark corner of the restaurant. We had to use our phone flash light to read their paper menus. Overall. It wasn’t a good birthday location. Vale was $7. Only positive service.

    The server Maurice was absolutely incredible. He was attentive, friendly, engaging, and a true professional. The food was incredible. The only thing that we really struggled with was the table placement in the direct sunlight. I understand the level of business they have but truly a horrible experience due to the table we were giving. Our server provided plenty of water and did his best. We did wait 58 minutes for our entrees which really seemed longer due to the extreme heat and sunlight. The food once arrived was incredible. Unless covered seating outside is available or a table inside we will wait to return.

    Husband and I wanted to dine here for our 5 year anniversary because it used to be one of my favorite spots to eat. We had a reservation and wanted to be seated outside but that was about a 30 min wait so we opted to sit inside instead. Not sure if they were short staffed or that it was Saturday night but the service was horrible and quality of food has gone down. Husband got the herb lavender chicken which was not tasty at all and only came with 3 tiny potatoes on the side, I wanted him to send it back to get something else but that probably would’ve taken another half an hour to come out. I order the baked seafood pasta, nothing to rave about the pasta was over cooked and way too overpriced for what it was. Sad this place has gone downhill, won’t be back anytime soon.

    I don’t know where to start. This restaurant absolutely does not care about your dining experience. We live in St. Louis and we were going to be in Fort Lauderdale over my son‘s 16th birthday. I made a reservation a MONTH in advance. I requested a table on the water to celebrate a special birthday. I called the day of the reservation to confirm and again requested a great water table for a special celebration. We arrived and we were sat in the back corner next to the parking lot. Really? We talked to so many people – two managers, Brad and Mark - evidently there was absolutely nothing that could be done. The people who they tried to sit next to us also complained , and somehow they ended up on the water 3 minutes later. Maybe they slipped the hostess a $20 bill. Who knows? But not us – from out of town celebrating a 16th birthday – they literally did not care. It only went downhill from there. 15 minutes later we had water but had not ordered. We had two waitresses who are responsible for at least 10 tables all of which had huge parties of 10+ people. One of the waitresses came and told us she was told to take extra special care of us and we literally never saw her again. After we finally ordered - an hour later, still no food. My husband ordered a beer that he had to remind the waitress about and he finally received it after we were finished eating our meal. The food is nothing special, just average. We ordered dessert. Absolutely nothing was done about the birthday. Nothing. We were given a free dessert and half off of another dessert for our trouble, or for the birthday, who knows? The manager that came to speak to us at the end of the meal apologized. I’m not sure why he did nothing for the two hours while we were there eating? If you are looking for somewhere to go for a special occasion - go elsewhere.The overall experience was terrible. My son will always remember his 16th birthday sitting by the parking lot in Florida thanks to Shooters.

    I was really excited to finally dine at Shooters. On arrival we had a reservation for 7:30 but did not get seated until 8:00 because the “kitchen crashed” Our server was fantastic, the the food was not, we asked for a well don’t steak that came medium rare and was plated rather sloppy.

    We had an amazing time. The food was delicious and the view was incredible, exactly what we wanted for a Sunday brunch. Our waitress was Megan and she was very sweet, soft spoken and very professional and very polite. We will request her next time we go. Please make a reservation because the place gets packed and the wait times are very long! That’s how amazing this place is.

    We were celebrating my wife's birthday with friends. We all ordered the New England Clam Chowder. It was EXCELLENT! It even had bacon crumbs. We order for the entrees, the Baked Seafood Pasta and the Grilled Soy-Ginger Glazed Salmon. Both dishes were GREAT! For Dessert we ordered the Key Lime Baked Alaska. It was AWESOME! We had several Mango Rum Punches! A delicious cocktail that I had to have a second! This restaurant has been a great place for dinner for a very long time. The view outside is great but because of the high temperatures we decided to eat indoors.
