We ordered 2 cocktails, 2 salads, 1 appetizer and the bill was 100$
So expensive.
I ordered quinoa salad and I never couldn’t find one quinoa seed.

Knew we were in trouble when the hostess announced unapologetically that there were no tables. Would you like to sit outside? No, it is 95 degrees out and humid. I was corrected that it was indeed very nice outside. Ultimately, took a hightop next to the service door. Sweltering heat and no breeze. The service was average. Asked for clean silverware after a salad course. Apparently this was an unusual and a demanding request. Food may have been appropriate when prepared, but after sitting under a heat lamp, Mahi was dried and flavorless.

This was our second visit to the restaurant while in Ft. Lauderdale on an 8 day stay. By far our favorite.

The food was delicious. Calamari was cooked perfectly. I would suggest to make a reservation, place can get really busy especially on a weekend. They have the convenience of Valet for only $5. Andrew our server was very attentive and friendly. Definitely will come back again.

I must say Shooters Waterfront is one of the best resataurant I have ever been. I book my reservation and I got a call the day before for a reminder and the staff said have a wonderful date (because it was date night). I have never had a restaurant said that to me so that was one of the things I like. The staff is awesome. 8/4 we were there and a boat came in off the water too hot and almost turn the umbrellas over and they caught them before they could hit a customer. The food is awesome too but the service always WOW me.

My yearly visit to Shooters did not disappoint. My husband and I visited on Saturday 8/4. Our server, Dustin, was great! Super friendly and personable and a great presence. I had the beef thai salad which was phenomenal; light but filling and extremely flavorful. Husband had the special - charred swordfish over lobster bisque with fried rock shrimp. Mouth watering and a great choice. Ambiance was beautiful as always!

New fan of Shooter's Waterfront
Been there 3 times and food is OUTSTANDING. I now refer to Brent as my dining guide as he is attentive..bit not hovering. I highly recommend the grouper and frutti de mar dishes. Ya gotta remember to leave room for desert... upside down pineapple HUGE and plenty for 2-3 folks. On the IC with views at sunset are fabulous.

It was my friend 27th birthday which I stated when I made the reservations & I reminded the hostess they said ok.. so they sat us at a good spot (outside) was greeted by a server can’t even remember her name she took our orders and then comes back with another server (Alex) She said she is leaving her shift is over she didn’t realize what time it was when she took our table & going forward Alex would be our server, long story short The lady still came to our table and she even took a another table had me feeling she DID NOT WANT TO SERVE US! I’m not even going to play the race card but I felt she disrespected us by doing that... ON TOP OF TJAT MO ONE ACKNOWLEDGED IT WAS MY FRIENDS BDAY !!! Btw Alex was a good server he did his job. Don’t know if I want to go back because the way I look u didn’t want to serve my friends and I Shame on u lady.

The ambiance of this restaurant was great, it’s felt private and exclusive, but also lively. It felt like it was part of an all inclusive resort. The inter coastal makes for a great backdrop and there is lots of activity in the outdoor seating area. That said, it was quiet enough to converse privately at your table. The food was great, the portions large. Our service was not good. Fortunately, there were lots of waitstaff who helped out throughout the meal, and some who were strangely occupied talking on walkie talkies. Overall, we’d return but primarily for the view. It was a bit expensive for the overall experience.

Ordered a side dish but it never arrived, took too long for the food to arrive, we have been here before but this was not good, Even to get our car was a problem, they left the car in the middle of the street with down pouring rain.
Overall a bad experience.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing.
The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

We had a lovely dinner, but when it came time for dessert, a group of women started smoking in the designated smoking area, but the wind shifted and one person in our party gets migraines from cigarette smoke. He went inside and spoke to a manager. The manager came out and told us that he had a table inside so we could enjoy our dessert. The food was delicious and we will come back!

Awful service right from the start.. made a reservation and was told our table was not ready since we were early.. then 3 people walked in without a reservation and were seated first.. the hostess said they were here first.. not true but dealt with it.. proceeded to sit 10 minutes later and then continued to have 3 different waiters throughout the night. It was a free for all.. understaffed and lots of confusion. Have been going to shooters for over 10 years and something is going amiss.. disappointing
