Seafood
A lot has changed since 1982; but despite Fort Lauderdale’s evolution, one restaurant on the Intracoastal has been there every step of the way. With its dockside views, fresh seafood, and lively events — all served up in a relaxed environment — Shooters Waterfront is a Florida icon. There’s a reason behind our longevity: We invite you to see for yourself.

Insane number of people on Sunday brunch. Check in process needs to change for those with reservations. Loud live music. Good food snd great service. Beautiful setting but not worth the hassle.

This place exceeded my expectations for brunch. It was totally not what I expected but what a TREAT it was. The waiter was attentive, the guys on the omelet and wattle stations were very polite and made the food perfectly. Definitely will go again and recommend this place to try.

We went for Valentines Day! The ambiance was beautiful. The area was spacious and didn’t seem overcrowded though there were many individuals there. The view of the water was beautiful. I got the brown butter scallops and shrimp and I have no complaints. Cooked to perfection and hot. We even received complimentary roses for the night! Our waitress was attentive even though she served a big section. At no point did we feel neglected. Definitely would recommend to others!

Tonight was our first night at shooter’s we decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Our experience was INCREDIBLE. The service was top notch as well as the food. Request Valerie as your server she is outstanding. My husband and I will definitely be returning to shooters.

Great Valentine's evening. Tim or waiter, offered excellent, very personalized service, even stuffed our martini olives with blue cheese. Food was delicious. Wonderful sunset & early evening ambience. Shooter's is our favorite Valentine's venue.

I hardly dare write this for fear of never being able to get a table at Shooters ever again but without one shadow of a doubt Shooters is my favourite restaurant in Fort Lauderdale. The view, the ambience, the wait staff, the ladies on the front desk, the valet park guys and of course the amazing chefs all do their job to perfection. Food is always amazing. What is there not to like - better get yourselves a reservation.

Great location, great ambiance and service. Scallops were awesome but my brothers $42 filet was overcooked and somewhat flavorless, not awful but for that price , it should have been awesome. Still recommend !!

Once we got seated, the service, food and our waiter were great. However, the hostess told us there were no tables in the outdoor happy hour area, which we requested. There were 4 open and the manager had to seat us correctly. So a disconnect between the hostess, seating requests, and what
is available

Everything about the experience was awful . We met friends bc it was a halfway point for both of us. The people at the desk were rude . We requested outside table and were told to mail at the bar but then no one came to get us but they apparently texted us. So instead they made us wait again to be seated . The waiter service was slow and almost like they were ignoring us. Then we requested a birthday desert and it came hard as a rock . To top it off they told Open Table I was a no show . They only redeeming factor was the view . I would not go back

Once a year we visit and the food, drinks, and atmosphere is spectacular. This place is somewhat expensive $200 for 2 people. However, the view and the service is worth it. I’m always a little over dressed, but jeans are accepted. Although this restaurant is hidden away, it is quite popular and reservations are recommended, especially if you enjoy outside dining.

I was pleased to have Chosen a restaurant like Shooters Waterfront to celebrate my little sister 18th Birthday. Everyone we made contact with from the valet, the host, to our waiter, even the ones that were not assigned to our table came and asked us if there’s anything we need. This was indeed the best experience I’ve had.

looking forward for my next visit

Thank you to the Shooters Waterfront you guys are AMAZING!

I was very disappointed with the service! We had a reservation for four at 8 PM on 2/5/19. We arrived at 7:30p and was told we were too early for our reservation. We sat at the bar until 7:55p. We went back to check in and we were not seated until 8:25 P. The waitress took our order at 8:30 P. She didn’t come back to check on us until 9:10p to tell us that they ran out of what we ordered. She wasn’t attentive to us at all but very friendly to the other guest around us. We were not served our food until after 9:30p. The guest at a table next to us were seated after us and received their meals before us. After talking to the manager, he was giving us excuses after excuses and only offered us chocolate cake. We spent over $200 and was treated like we couldn’t afford to eat there. NEVER AGAIN!!

The food and atmosphere was wonderful; however, the service was not what I would expect at a restaurant of this caliber. We ordered and it took a good 40 minutes for food to arrive and then a side dish ordered didn't come. It finally came about 20 min after we were done eating. The manager did comp a dessert to try and make up for the mix up. BTW, the waiter was awesome and it appeared not to be an issue with him.
