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.

On arrival was greeted by valet who opened driver door and said $5.00 .
There were 3 for lunch. All ordered crab Louie salad . $25 per salad. Cup of clam chowder was ordered by 1 .
Soup was Luke warm. Was sent back, a bowl was then sent out, warm but very starchy. Would not recommend, more like thick gravy minus the biscuits.
The salad plates came out, looked beautiful but was tasteless. When asked by the server how everything was we all told him the crab was poor quality and tasteless. The manager came over and asked if we tried salt and pepper? We told him it was more than to add salt. He then sent a chef out who brought several dressing and asked if we needed to use a dressing. The crab was awful. Reminded me of canned crab leftovers in water. The server offered us dessert on him since we were dissatisfied. At $40 per person I don’t expect to return

I had a reservation outside and checked in with it. I was then seated inside and informed staff my reservation was outside. Staff stated they didn’t believe me and to go re check in as outside was for reservation only. I was upset basically after being called a liar. I went back to check in at which point my reservation was found and seated outside. Made the night from the beginning leaving a bad taste in mouth.

We had a reservation at 1. We weren't seated until 1:57. They tried to seat us at a table which was too small for our party. Service was awful. Took forever. Food was just OK. Not worth the wait or the money.

I was very disappointed at the service on Saturday, me & my guest sat for 25 minutes without anyone acknowledged us & this was a reservation we made, so we got up & left, went to another Resturant & service was excellent, did not expect that type of service because I was bragging about Shooters☹️☹️

Out of the many choices for elegant dining in the Ft Lauderdale area, I am very happy I chose Shooters Waterfront to host a birthday celebration dinner. The location is on the water which gave the option of dinner with a view. Summner showers rolled through shortly after being seated and we were promptly moved indoors with a transfer of servers. The service is professional the handoff was smooth and we knew we were in good hands either way. The bar is open for Happy Hour which was the loudest area of the restaurant but the crowd wasn't so loud as to disturb other diners. They offer various drink and dinner specials on the menu. My guest enjoyed appetizers, entrees, and dessert. I definitely recommend the smoke fish dip and Guava Martini. I look forward to returning when I am in the city again.

Taylor our server was excellent. Food quality good but value related to prices charged was way to high.
Over $320 for four is a little ridiculous

They were really busy,I was late for my reservation. But they were willing to accommodate and we were still able to sit & enjoy a meal. It was my first time there, only gripe I had was how loud the music was, made it hard to hear my date while speaking.

Our server Hanna, was extremely attentive and very lovely to interact with. Also, the gentleman Ari, who came to our table as soon as we were seated and took our wine order was also very attentive and pleasant.

Enjoy coming to Shooters, whenever we are in Florida

It is a nice place to have dinner, a party, and just a conversation with a friend if there are no loud or very loud neighbors. There few things in a menu that were adjusted and we do not like. It was great before, now it is good. Few dishes lost that "wow Shooters "signature and became more common, commercial. New MKT price at 15% of the menu. Just put a price on that salad. Is greens with few pieces of lobster will be that much different between today evening and tomorrow afternoon?
service is great. Always been

Service was disgraceful. They had run out of silverware so we were given plastic. They forgot 2 of the 6 meals that were finally delivered after everyone else had eaten. It was very busy. I will not go again at weekend or holiday time. I told them to forget one of the late meals that was for a child has she had shared her brothers meal The other meal was for a adult and was needed. They still delivered both meals but they did comp then .
