Started off a bit odd. Sat down for a bit with no acknowledgement when the server finally came over she insisted that I would have to wait for the dinner server to come to begin ordering with them but in the end it was worth the wait because an angel names Jessica came and delivered the best service and was so nice and friendly. She also made sure to check up with us in between courses and never let our drinks go i filled. The food and the ambiance did not disappoint other than the misstep with the transition from lunch to dinner everything was great!

Awesome experience. Outdoor dining. Intercostal view. Staff moved the umbrellas to block the sun - if you desired. Server - Sara- extremely knowledgeable about the menu. Service was friendly and spot on. Food was outstanding. Had the mussels appetizer and the the scallop and shrimp with risotto.

Absolutely gross. Very high prices for poor quality food and experience. Wait time was long. Dirty. Smelled like fish. My fillet mignon tasted boiled. Nothing was appetizing. I did not feel safe either. I would never even come close to thinking of recommending this place to someone.

Had reservations but arrived early and ended up eating at a high-top in the bar since it was happy hour.

Always a good time and great views of the intercostal!

One of the best places in Fort Lauderdale!

The valet service and hostesses were very attentive. Once inside, we were seated promptly in a very comfortable/accessible area. We were then greeted by our server who was BEYOND AMAZING!!! She went above and beyond to make sure everything was to our liking and met our expectations which indeed it all did. The food was extremely tasty and generously portioned, our glasses kept being refilled without having to ask and she was very pleasant and knowledgeable. 5 Star service - simply wonderful! Highly recommend it 💕

What a disaster!!!
I have been at Shooters several times and it has been fine dining, until last night
I went with my two sister and my husband for a Bon Voyage dinner last night and it was catastrophic. Looking back, it's clear that the waiter, which I missed his name, did not like us and played games with us grinning all along. Not sure why. Maybe because we had a small order with less tip expected, (two soups and two entrees, no drinks, as we just came back from a cocktail party,) or maybe because he did not like to serve a noticeably gay couple, we don't know for sure.
The order took ages to be served, and the two soups finally came with two PLASTIC spoons. The waiter said nothing, and only made a remark after my sister asked him how come it comes with plastic spoon. "I could not find spoons", his answer was. I asked him (very nicely) to look for spoons and wash some if needed. In one minute he came back with regular spoons. I guess the joke was a done deal.
Then one of the soups was at room temperature. My sister asked to warm it up. He took it and returned quickly with a fuller dish saying "I threw out the soup you return and I brought you a new soup that I warmed up for you" (exact words). When my sister tasted it, it was a watery version of the original soup. Later we realized that, almost certainly, he just added hot water to it and brought it back. My sister gave up on it. The rest of the food, other than my plate, was okay, not really successful this time either.
I kick myself that I did not make a bigger deal with the manager on this, though my husband talked to the waiter (too nicely), as we were leaving, that he should never treat customers this way.
This dining experience turn to be a big disappointment and upsetting experience for an occasion that should have been nice and memorable for good reasons.
I don't think that I will return to Shooters any time soon.

We had a reservation for 4 people and were seated immediately. Two of us had the salmon that was cooked precisely how we ordered. Both were absolutely delicious and probably the best I've had in a long time. Special recognition to our waitress who provided us with exceptional, friendly service.
