We are locals. When we were first seated we were seated at a table that was dirty. There was also a hair on one of the plates.
I asked to be moved. We were moved to main dining room which was much better.
The service was good, however the food was just ok and over priced.
I know you all probably cater to the tourist, but you should really consider the locals as well when it comes to food quality and prices.

We were down in Fort Lauderdale for a short vacation and my mother is a seafood fan. We also wanted ambiance. I found Shooters and it did not disappoint. We had cocktails and rosé along with an appetizer of the smoked fish dip. I had Mahi tacos, the others in our party had fish and chips, and risotto with scallops and shrimp. They were all delicious. We also ordered the special of Brussel sprouts. We had to send them back. They were hard as rocks with no flavor. They took it off of our bill. Overall, I would definitely return to Shooters. The staff was awesome and the seating on the water was a plus. The price is great for the portion size that you get. I definitely recommend Shooters!

Shooters Waterfront Grill staff from the valet attendant to the front staff & waitress were all attentive to our needs during our dining experience. The decor desperately requires an update, it looks like it’s stuck in th 90’s. The waitress recommended a frozen wine drink which was delicious and would highly recommend. We started our meal with Calamari appetizer ($16) which was seasoned well lightly breaded and quick fried, very tasty. I then had the Black grouper meal ($32) which once again was delicious. Hubby had the fried fish with fries ($22) and the appearance was appalling the three pieces of fish were a little larger than the size of a McDonalds chicken nugget . The fish portions were small for both meals in relation to the price. To complete the evening we ordered the pineapple upside down rum cake which came with what appeared to be a cup of caramel sauce poured in the top of it and soaked through the cake. I love sweets and long for a delicious dessert at the end of my meal. This cake was SUPER SWEET making it inedible, no matter how hard I tried to eat it. I could feel the cavities coming on. When I brought this to the waitress’ attn she apologized and offered a replacement however I declined and she immediately removed the cake from the table & the bill. Overall the waterfront view was nice, however the owners need to seriously consider upgrades to the place. The staff was attentive but the value for the meals were fair at best. Unsure if it is worth a return visit.

Shooters Waterfront has become one of our favorites. Service is outstanding..waite-staff are all extremely friendly and attentive...not over powering..and the food prep is superb. The Fruiti de Mare with squid ink black pasta...WOW. The Black grouper wonderful...Scallops and shrimp with the corn couscous delitefull. Flat bread appetizers just enough to enjoy before the main course...or with a soup or salad if eating lite for the evening. Dining on the waterfront patio is beautiful with the breathtaking sunsets..the boaters..and the live music. Always being able to get my desired outdoor tables...I have not yet even eaten inside. However, the dining rooms and the bar all look updated and inviting if the weather does not co-operate. I see MANY happy evenings in the future.

Wonderful meal! We had Lindsay as a server and she was very attentive. The only turn off of the evening was we were seated outside (which we requested) however they allow smoking- someone was smoking a cigar as we finished dinner and that was very much unwelcomed by our party.

scotty was a really great server, the bar was behind and we received our food before the drinks, next time we'll ask for the drinks first which is what we like to do to get warmed up for an awesome dinner, I had the scallops & shrimp dinner - superb, scotty was apologetic and we didn't take the drinks coming last out on him. we will ask for him next time.

Im from the Bahamas and my wife and I were there for her birthday and It was amazing. Lindsay was the server she was friendly and nice. She was busy but always paid attention to us. With a nice smiley she was ready to do any thing we asked of her. The hostess at the door was friendly also. Thank you Shooters and your friendly staff for making my wife's birthday even better will be back when in fort Lauderdale.

Unfortunitly it rained very hard in the middle of our meal while we were seated outside. There were four of us in our party and we all had to run for cover carrying our food. No-one came out to help us. After we seated ourselves inside the waiter asked if we would care for anything else. This would have been fine if the waiter or the manager had asked if we were OK. We couldn't expect them to do anything about the rain but assistance or an apology would have been nice.

Our waitress, Valerie, only came to our table to take our order and give us our check (after waiting fifteen minutes for it). She never returned to pick up our check and after 20 minutes, another server was nice enough to pick it up for us. We still never saw Valerie again. The food was great as was the atmosphere but the poor service definitely put a damper on our only night in Fort Lauderdale.

I went with a girlfriend to share some appetizers. We had the crab cake, hummus and tuna appetizers. Everything was tasty and the service was great. We sat outside with a great view of the Intracoastal. It's a pretty large restaurant so they would be able to accommodate large groups. The menu had a variety of options so it was easy to find something interesting.

Loved the restaurant & the wait staff were excellent!! My only complaint was the valet parking. We missed the entrance & parked ourselves & the valet made us move the car instead of giving us a ticket & leaving the car in the valet parking space. He was not very friendly or helpful.

My first table experience at Shooters. I usually go to the bar. Service was very good. Kevin greeted us. Tanya took good care of us. Our ribeyes were cooked perfectly. Roasted red potatoes great. All served hot and timely. My only critique was the mac n cheese was bland and soupy. Pasta however was perfect firm. I returned the item.

We loved this restaurant so much that we went twice on our short vacation. We went both days for lunch and got the Caesar salad and the shrimp/scallop menu item. It was amazing. The service was at the same level - amazing. Ask for Dustin (the waiter). Truly a great person to represent this great restaurant with a wonderful view of the waterway. Boats coming and going were a fun watch. Love the host Vanessa.

Had a family night out at Shooters Waterfront and honestly every trip here is delightful! The past couple times the service has been okay at best but the delicious food and atmosphere makes it worth the drive for us! The shrimp and scallop risotto is a family favorite as well as the Godzilla sushi roll :)
