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.

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 server but bad ending when the assistant manager came over to ask how a meal was and then proceeded to tell us we needed to leave as there were people waiting. We hadn’t even received are check or been asked if we wanted dessert!

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.

First off, the restaurant is HUGE with a ton of outside seating on the intracoastal. Why wait at Houston’s when you can just go here? We had a variety of dinners, which everyone enjoyed. My scallop & shrimp entree with a lobster tail was very good! Waiter was very energetic and helpful. We will be back!

I have been to shooters many times and this was very disappointing, by their very high standards. The drinks were awful. They could not make proper cocktails so that bar staff should be fired. Eg a simple Miami vice was awful.

One of my friends ordered the special and 25 mins later they came back and said there was none left. This meant the other 3 meals came out first and his came out 25 mins later.

Terrible evening.
I will think twice before I come back and if I do come back it will only be during the day as clearly the better bar people work during the day.

Seated quickly. Deanna was our server. She was excellent, the best we have had in a long time. Great suggestions and checked on us frequently. Chowder was very good as was the calimari. Special of swordfish and lobster risotto was very tasty

Love the inter-coastal location and ambience. We go there every time we come into town. VERY disappointed in food. Especially the teeny-tiny fish tacos my husband ordered. A child could’ve finished them. And MARKET PRICE yet! I expected slow service, our server was very nice, sure he did his best but it took a really long time just to get the soup. Our guests didn’t care for their food either. It’s busy and will probably stay that was but we won’t be going back. It’s a shame….

If you get the cool table near the water, it’s a great experience. Sometimes this restaurant is so busy the service suffers slightly, but for our weeknight dinner, everything was superb.

Since we ate outside, the noise level was very much reduced. We enjoyed watching the boats go by in the intercoastal waterway. The service was superb, the food was excellent, and the pineapple upside down cake dessert was absolutely out of this world!
