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.

Wonderful location for outdoor dining. We enjoyed the flatbread as it was a thin crispy crust and very freshly prepared. We expected the lump crab meat salad to have pieces of crabmeat, rather than a spread. Salmon was also fresh and perfectly cooked and seasoned.

The highlight of our meal was our server Tori, who kept calm under pressure after it started pouring while we were seated outside. She also had a great personality overall and knew the menu well and made great recommendations. A+

We had a wonderful time!!! We sat outside, right beside the beautiful Fort Lauderdale intracoastal waterway. The service we received was outstanding. The food was good, but I have definitely had better! We took tons of pictures and had only one regret. For about an hour a party of 4 sat next to us with their beautiful dog, who did a whole lot of barking. Other than that, this night was truly an amazing one.

Initially we sat outside which was lovely but it was too chilly. We were reseated by the bar and a table for 12 so it was very noisy. The food was mediocre. Our server was initially very attentive but he didn’t return after our food was delivered or we would both have sent our entrees back.

Our waitress was phenomenal. She was attentive and constantly visiting our table. She was very lovely and accommodated our every request. It was a little chilly and you had the heaters outside, which was wonderful. Our breakfast omelettes were cooked to perfection. We also love the option of a side salad with our omelette. And the ranch dressing is delicious. We had an amazing experience.

Huge shoutout to our server Brooks! Without him our experience would not have been half as good. He was attentive, knowledgeable, present and overall had a welcoming vibe that made our brunch more than enjoyable. Food was great, drinks were great, but I have to say Brooks was the highlight of our brunch. Hands down the best server I’ve ever had and I am super picky about service at restaurants. Brooks need to be promoted or recognized for his amazing service.

We live in Palm Beach and drove down for a business lunch. The ambiance is outstanding - gorgeous outdoor dining area, yacht after yacht passing by. Service was also good. 2 vegans in the group, with a couple of options, which was welcome. The food? Bland at best. Totally uninspired and forgettable. You’re definitely paying for the view (canal view, so not spectacular) & seating (which really kindof IS fantastic). Might be a nice choice for drinks and socializing.

We ordered simply Burgers. They both came very over cooked. We didn’t want to send them back bc of the wait plus you know what they say about sending food back to the kitchen. They gave us a free desert. They should have simply comped us our food or at least one of the burgers. Very disappointed. We were feeling it more so as we left and looking back at how it was handled. You can do better shooters!

After waiting over an hour with a reservation, our meal was very disappointing. I know they were busy but we felt our server was not accommodating and did not go out of his way to make sure we were satisfied. Food was just okay. What made it worse was the attitude of our server. We go out fairly often and know what good service is and outstanding. This was neither. Unfortunately, we won’t return to Shooters again. When the weather is good, it’s wonderful to sit outside. But they had nothing to offer on a rainy day. There are too many other great places.

Karla our server was awesome and the food was good. Had a few sushi rolls we shared and a aces of us had breakfast and a few lunch (this was a Sunday brunch). The brunch looked very good but more food than any of us could eat. The flatbread pizza was excellent. Bottomless mimosas capped it off.

We had such an enjoyable dinner! The ambiance was great as usual for Shooters outside seating; it was pretty loud but that’s most places on a Saturday night. Food was delicious! We always get raw oysters here, however tonight they were just okay. We got baked seafood pasta and the shrimp and scallop dish - both delicious. Love this place!

Service slow but it was a Saturday. Entrees and drinks excellent but dessert (apple pie) arrive extremely cold and it looked like it was just sitting there for a while.

Great outdoor, on the intercostal restaurant. One of the best settings for Fort Lauderdale on the water dining.
Food is good, wish I could say great but it doesn't disappoint. Pricey.
Service staff isn't wearing masks - a disappointment.
