I and my date met one of my former students from the late 80’s. It was the first time we have seen each other in over 30 years. The restaurant was absolutely perfect for the occasion.

Be on shooter's for the third time, This time was special , because we celebrated my husband 86 Birthday and also he recovery from a triple by pass 2 months ago.
Everything did go well , but the table location was very close to the speaker and with the loud music we(party of 6) could not have a conversation, My son and he's family come from NY for this event and was hope could have a conversation with he's dad about the surgery , and find out what will be the next treatment . Hope next time they give me a better table.

It rained so understandably our reservation was pushed back, but they put us in a random spot where I think wedding receptions are held, no ambiance- and the food was horrible! I think they just rushed to serve us, over cooked eggs, dry benedict, not good. Way too expensive for that kind of meal/service.

I went to Shooters with girlfriends and to celebrate my birthday. Hector took the best car of us! He anticipated rain coming in and moved us to a table where we could continue the party and stay dry. It was a special day and Hector made it easygoing.

The lobster salad at 34$ was expensive for the size of salad… it’s only that for thé good,everything else was very good.
The service was so so,we took a bottle of wine and the woman put some wine at the beginning and no Côme backdoor after.

Haven’t been to Shooters in quite some time, and was pleasantly surprised with excellent service by our waitress, Tayla!

We Sought out Shooters for a birthday lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Had the ahi tuna salad, which was amazing and featured ample portions. The Birthday girl had the chicken flat bread.

Great food for the prices. Tayla made it extra special.

Great atmosphere. Food was ok. Unfortunately, we had very bad service. Our server left us sitting for 20+ minutes before I decided to get up and go find her. While we were sitting waiting, a food runner left a tray of coconut shrimp on our table that we did not order. He ran off so quickly, we didn’t get the chance to tell him we didn’t order it. We were going to order appetizers but were afraid our server would go missing again so only ordered dinner and opted to get dessert elsewhere.

One of our favorite stops whenever we are in the Fort Lauderdale area. Micah our waiter was great. The food did not disappoint and what can you say about the ambiance over looking the yatchs traversing the waterways.
Five stars out of five.

Everyone recommend that shooters was the place to eat. I was highly under whelmed and disappointed with my experience. The food wasn’t worth the price. The bathrooms were a complete mess. Lastly the service was slow.

First time here, all staff was friendly. Where they say us though in the corner by the door to outdoor seating was extremely warm because people were going in and out constantly and the AC didn’t stay in very well. Also our food took about 30 minutes after we ordered to be out, they also didn’t have any crap and that was the biggest reason we went. We went at noon so I’m Not sure how they ran out so fast. I give it a 3/5 stars overall.

This place was awesome!! We were in Fort Lauderdale for vacation and found this amazing spot so we had to try it out. Our service was excellent. Our server’s name was Tori, she was so energetic, funny, cute, and awesome. She knew the menu very well and we never had to wait for her. She was so fun to be with. I would definitely request her again. Everything was great, the food was GOOD. The hostesses were extremely nice and professional. The manager on duty was also very nice and productive. He checked up on us multiple times. Next time I come on vacation, I am definitely coming back to this place. LOVED IT!

We had a reservation for 9pm. We arrived at 8:50pm, and didn’t get seated until 930pm. Which was upsetting because they mixed our group and another group up and sat them down before us which caused a longer wait time. Our waiter was fine but we basically had to get up and walk to the front before our waitress realized we were ready to go. Otherwise it was cool, little more expensive than expected but food was amazing

We sat outside and it was beautiful! A little hot while the sun was still high but as it went down it was perfect. All the food was DELICIOUS. We got oysters, calamari, the cheese board and the grilled Cobia.

Had a great experience once again and invited two friends who were first timers. They enjoyed their experience and their food very much! Our server was Jena and she was completely awesome, nice and comical. The atmosphere was lovely and as the sun dipped into the abyss, the wind blew in nicely cooling is down. I think the evening atmosphere enhanced the ambiance of the place and we simply had a ball talking, eating and reveling in the waterfront view.

Finally made it there thanks to a friend's recommendation years ago. Our first time there did not disappoint. Elegant but casual restaurant in a beautiful location on the Intracoastal. The food was great as was the service thanks to our waiter Michal. Looking forward to our next dinner. Reservations are a must as this an extremely popular place. Bon Apetit!

Hollywood Sushi was the worst thing I have ever had. Uneven cuts, roll was just cucumber and the crab topping tasted old and probably from a can.

Seafood baked pasta was not restaurant quality. Didn’t taste fresh.
