I booked my table two weeks prior to the date. Arriving I was told my table was not ready for 45 minutes and my party could sit outside. It was 60* and too cold. I was told we could sit in the bar area which is first come first serve and no table was available. The hostess went on to help a patron find a Shooters coat to buy.
It was a zoo and I regretted making the reservation. Finally a table in the bar area opened. Never was there an apology except to say I am sorry for the weather. Really!!!
The fish and chips was $22. Another really!
We have been there many times and it was the first time it was an 5. Our server handle the commotion fine and was a sweet woman.

Wonderful Sunday brunch experience. Quiet table in corner with fabulous view. Service was great and food was delicious. Ordered off menu - steak and eggs were perfectly done. My husband enjoyed the Lobster Benedict. Glad to have the valet parking and all the staff was very accommodating to help us navigate through the restaurant with a wheelchair. We will return if we are back in the area!

The staff was accommodating as the weather was questionable. The atmosphere was energising, but a bit on the loud side. Food was delicious. Recommend for crab cake Benedict and Godzilla roll.

I stated that I would recommend Shooters because in the past we had great service. However, on Friday night, the hostess first told us she did not see our reservation, then we were told we could not sit by the cabana because the owner's friends had it all night. Our server, a guy who clearly does not love his job, responded to my question of "what are the side options" by telling me "look on the menu"... he was poor at service. When we finally went to the cabana we were pretty much bullied into ordering again; this after we had a full meal with drinks. I have never had that type of service at Shooters; granted neither have I ever encountered those humans. Our original reservation was at Tiki which I always get immaculate service, but because we had 6 in the party the Tiki spots were not big enough. And the night went down hill from there. What is sad is that it was a birthday celebration; alas.

Always great service. Tonight we had a new server, named Manny. He was great. My only complaint is that it has gotten waaay too crowded. Your hostess does a remarkable job considering the crowds. The food is always consistent. Love this place but it has gotten extremely popular since the renovations.

It’s the view, stupid! The food is mediocre so it makes no sense to sit indoors and not take advantage of the outdoor terrace which is right on the water. My crab salad was close to tasteless and suffered further from a particularly artless presentation. I heard the hamburger was better but I’m not certain that’s a reason to go to a seafood restaurant.

Great location with good service from polite, professional waiters/waitresses. Nothing was to much trouble, even switching menus and servers part way through. It was not our first time and definitely not our last...........

Usually this restaurant would get A's across the board but this past Saturday was a 1st disappointment for me. I had a 9:30 reservation and arrived way ahead of schedule and still wasn't seated till almost 10pm. Since it was ladies night out it was ok because we had drinks at the bar. Then the server only chked on us once. We had to ask another waitress for utensils. Granted she was very nice but she was attentive to us. That won't stop us from going back though.

Even though I had a reservation, and arrived sharply, we were told that we had to wait at least 30 minutes and they sent us to the bar. Then our supposedly outside table was almost inside. Too noisy!!! We could barely see the boats from our table.
The occasion was a date night but the ambience was not suitable for a romantic dinner.
The food was just okay but very overpriced.
I’m canceling my already set reservation for Valentine’s Day.

I had reservation for 2 people, when i got there they told me there is around 20 minutes wait for a table and that we will get text message when its ready. The table was ready fast but still, if you do have reservation means you have a table ready for you, not that you still have to wait. Other than that, the restaurant was really nice and the service was good.
