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.

I have been in the restaurant business for 43 years this place knows what they are doing! A definite stop if you are in Ft Lauderdale! Filet was well worth the $44 huge 10oz potion with asparagus and potatoes. Shrimp and scallops were awesome as well! I had the ribs huge portion and delicious with sides $35! Drinks were strong and the desserts were over the top! If you are in the area make sure to make a reservation well in advance on Open table and relax as you take in the whole experience of this top shelf restaurant. FYI the yachts that pull in are unbelievable!

Restaurant was unknown to this group of 6 but was selected for its expected ambiance. Valet parking is rather expensive at $5. We had to wait for the whole group to be there before being seated. A little annoying but understandable given the size of this place. It is huge. When booking the reservation, we asked for a table outdoors by the Intracoastal. Our wish was granted. We had one of the really good tables. We started with cocktails. They were not great and they were expensive. Too much ice, they became watery and not very tasty. I recommend you go directly to beer and/or wine. All went to main dishes without appetizers. One guest had a Chicken Pesto Flatbread, two had the Cashew Crusted Mahi, two had the Seared Brown Butter Scallops & Shrimp and one had the Lobster Roll. Everyone was very satisfied. The Mahi was slightly overcooked but nevertheless very good. Wine list is quite good. Service was excellent. We remained at our table from 4:30 to 8:30PM and were never pressed or disturbed. Overall, the group was very happy with their outing and all claimed they will go back in the future.

Wonderful waterfront restaurant. Enthusiastic and attentive service. Good food. Lots of umbrellas and shade so that you’re comfortable. Well maintained and has a nice classy/stylish vibe. Not stuffy at all. Has more like a nice resort feeling. Comfortable and classy. And drinks were delish! We’ll be back.

Our favorite place to take guests in town, but only on their last night. It’s the crowning Ft Lauderdale experience!

We had a late reservation bc we didn’t get into town and checked into our resort until 3pm then beach and showers. So we made a later reservation for our anniversary dinner. I personally feel like if we had an earlier reservation our experience would have been a little better. It felt rushed and right when we sat down we were forced to order drinks, apps, and entree bc the kitchen was going to close. Maybe they shouldn’t allow such late reservations? Maybe the cut off should be 9 instead of 9:30 so people aren’t so rushed. The food felt like it was cooked in a rush as well. The scallops had no sear. My husband steak wasn’t cooked very well. The drinks were great though! I would go again but next time I’d go much earlier!

My wife and I spent 5 days in Ft. Lauderdale on a getaway. Of the various dinners we had, Shooters Waterfront was the BEST. Service was outstanding, over the top (thanks, Kelie!!). Great seats outside. Positive vibe. Food was fantastic.

I received a call from the manager to move our reservation up a half hour, no problem. However we were not seated until early 50 minutes after our reservation. Our table was nice and our server was very good. I was disappointed though in the lack of food available. The sushi was gone, which my daughter was looking forward to and then there were no plates, and by the time we received plates my daughter wanted a hamburger and was told "sorry we are closing up now". Really, you close up while people are still eating? Well in her case not (eating). She settled for a salad and macaroni and cheese, all thrown on one plate in fear of not receiving another. We are from out of town and had a pricey Uber to get to Shooters. Never again will I come here or recommend, what a sad disappointment for Easter. $65.00 for a salad and macaroni and cheese, perhaps not my idea of value.

Worst Easter buffet ever!! Quality of food was terrible, no COVID precautions and terrible service. Super expensive for trash food. Long wait even with reservation. Save your money and time.

Wonderful Easter Brunch, just a little disappointed they didn't offer the bottomless Mimosas like they have in the past but everything was delicious and very well managed with Covid precautions. It truly gave us a normal brunch feeling pre Covid! Fabulous table outside on the water, just a wonderful Sunday afternoon.

Stopped in with reservation 9:30 pm .. party of 7 ... 2 kids ...do not I repeat do not go here without a reservation unless you like sitting and waiting ...place was hopping ... valet parking a big plus for only $5 ...
JOHN was our server ... he made the night ... had that whatever you want ... you got it attitude ... and more ... a door was open near our table and with pretty strong wind it was getting a bit uncomfortable ... without us saying a word he noticed and immediately closed the door ... his presentation of the menu was excellent and service as usual made the night ...
Beautiful place
Perfect location on the water
Nice place for happy hour ... lunch ... dinner ... whatever !
