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.

Shooters is always very nice. A great place to gather with friends. Unfortunately the temperature was too cold to use the patio, but we had a great time inside as well. And the food is generally good to very good. The service was also attentive to our needs.

We had reservations but still had to wait 35 minutes. Then waited over 15 minutes for a waitress. Way to bright inside.

We brought an out-of-town couple for their first time to Shooters. Everything was terrific! Taylor, our server, was attentive, spot-on with everything and extremely personable. Even another server, Scottie, whom waited on us a few other times, came over to see us & moved an umbrella to block the sun. Our drinks were perfect & dinners were delicious. Our friends were very impressed with the entire experience. Dimitrius, one of the managers gave us a free appetizer & round of drinks due to a small problem with our reservation. I’d like to thank him very much. We will be back...

Always a pleasure particularly during lunch sitting outside, dockside. There isn’t a better stop to hang out at the bar or chill by the water the staff is well trained, professional, courteous and friendly. It’s a long time favorite of mine for casual, carefree dining and fun environment.

Breading on the fried food is heavy handed, but tasty. Calamari cooked too long, and fish & chips are no longer battered, but bread crumbs. Salads with toppers, flat bread, eggs Benedict with crab was done perfectly.

Reservations are honored. Easy valet parking.

The restaurant itself was great; however, I had a 1pm reservation and was not seated until 1:45pm. I’m not sure why they take reservations when you have to wait just as long as everyone else without reservations. That was a complete disappointment!

Very poor

Fantastic meal. We sat out by the canal and had a marvelous meal. Spent 2.5 hours there and the waitress never made us feel like we had to give up our table. I had an egg white omelet and my friends had the lobster rolls. We had endless mimosas and boy were they endless!
