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.

Went on a Saturday for brunch. Even though we had a reservation we still an additional 30 minutes. It was really busy. I had French it was good. Also I had the crab and shrimp omelet it overcooked.

Shooters is a must stop. I live down the street, remains my favorite in Fort Lauderdale. The service, varied menu, and ambiance cannot get better. They are also dog friendly and now even have a pup menu which my dogs love!

Everything was great but I was caught off guard by the freelance birds which evidently is a Florida thing or an outside thing because I noticed it at another outside venue as well.

Made a reservation for 5 to lunch with some dear old friends. It was a special occasion for us getting together and Zsusanne made everything special for us. Table by the water, excellent service and always outstanding food. Was a perfect afternoon far exceeding my expectations.
Thank you!!

Shooters is one of those places you go twice when you’re on vacation. The food is outstanding. The staff is polite and personable. The ambiance is next level. The drinks are superb. 10/10 every time.

Food and service are always excellent.
The problem is when you have a reservation, you are still made to wait. The greeting section is always chaotic!
3-4 people behind counter are always confused. Sets a bad vibe for a great meal.
The noise levels are unusually high for an outside dining experience.

The view was great and food was tasty. My biggest complaint was the waiter. No one at the table received a refill of drinks and I wasn’t asked what side I’d like with entree so they came very separate. Overall, we had a lovely time and will most likely visit again.

Atmosphere, food and service was amazing. Had a 10am reservation for Sunday brunch got right in sat by the water, area was shaded so we were not to hot. Enjoyed both the buffet and menu items, both did not disappoint. We stayed for over two hrs and did not feel rushed to leave.

Awesome waterfront location. The most tender filet I’ve had in my life! The “atta boy” dessert is the stuff dreams are made of!

Shooters is my fav place in South Florida. I do prefer to sit around the fire pit in a more relaxed fashion instead of sitting at a table but still, it's amazing every time I go. And I do try to go each week.

When I went to sit down my chair was wet and sticky. I changed chairs and that chair was broke. Bill was ridiculously high for what we ordered. Will never go back
