Shooters is always my go to place to celebrate! The ambiance was amazing. The food and appetizers were great. Our server was attentive but not annoying. We were able to take some nice pictures by the water. Shooters was an amazing place to celebrate my birthday!

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!

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.

Calamari was cold. Drinks very good.

Disappointed reserved tables months in advance. Wasn’t ready when we arrived. Then we asked to sit at table open right next to water but was told no they wanted to be used for larger party. Tables sat empty entire time we ate.

Place very nice. Waiter was very friendly and Informative. Hostesses need work.
