Loved brunch!!! Been several times now. Food is consistently delicious and bottomless mimosas are a must! We had our infant with us and the staff was very accommodating. Sat outside with a beautiful view of the water. Out waitress was wonderful and made great recommendations.

Inside the restaurant was very 👍 (food and service), but I give a really BIG zero to the valet parking service, they scrached the car that I rented it, I had to pay some one to fix it before to return it. You should see your camera to see that its true, the car was red and the big scrached was white. It was the right side of my rear bumper. What it makes me upset, it was that we have to paie for the service plus tip and they don't care about the car.

The menu had a nice mix of sushi and surf and turf entrees and appetizers, each sounding equally delicious, as did the specials. We opted for the rosemary lemon chicken and the shrimp and scallop dishes, accompanied by a guava martini. First, let me say that I’m not much of a drinker. When I do order a cocktail, my fiancé is always the one to finish it. Not this time. The guava martini was absolutely delightful with the perfect blend of juice and spirits, which were just enough to sweeten the experience without any after effects.

The chicken was superbly marinated, and both the shrimps and the scallops were tender and juicy. The side of broccoli we ordered was seasoned to perfection.

After dinner, our attentive servers invited us to lounge on the huge sectional overlooking the bay while we enjoyed a serving of delectable bread pudding flan and watched other diners, including the small group celebrating a birthday party inside an oversized cabana.

This restaurant was a great find that we thoroughly enjoyed, highly recommend, and will definitely visit again.

We have not been to Shooters for a bit and we were surprised to see the menu change quite a bit and the layout of the property had changed. The food was ok and doesn’t seem to be the same as we have experienced previously. It was good not great. The service was fine and the server was informative and friendly.

There was a lot of noise from drills etc in the restaurant. We had to change tables 3 times to get away from it. Also I had made a reservation for 2:30 (off hours) and there was no table available for me when I arrived. When I looked myself there were at least 6 available tables but we were seated at a table for 6. The server at our table for six was not friendly or accommodating. When we finally got a table in another part of the restaurant The food was good and our server very attentive. I was not overall pleased! I had bragged to my friend about the restaurant and was sadly disappointed.

I went for lunch and had the lollipop lamb chops which had s slight tang to them and melted in my mouth....so good! Then had a lobster salad on a bed of lettuce and it was truly delicious. On top of the great food and beautiful view of the intracoastal, our server was very attentive and friendly. Totally great experience.

A go-to place for waterfront dining..casual atmosphere..excellent service and good food. Not being a bar type guy, the dining areas are roomy and not crowded. Appetizers and flatbreads very adequate and recommend the PBSS flatbread. Seafood of course is delish..but I found the rib eye a bit lacking. Staff very helpful and not hovering over...just right.

I was celebrating my birthday that was during the week. I enjoyed every last minute of the scenery and the food. Took lots of pictures and will be back in the future to let my friends experience something just as good as I did. The waitress was exceptional and didn’t forget to bring me a birthday brownie. I’ll be back ❤️

I come to Shooters at least once a week. I always bring out of towners here. Unfortunately this night was unbelievable. We ordered our dinner and the soup we were told was being made fresh and would be very hot when it comes out. All of a sudden our dinner comes out luke warm. We explained to our waiter that we hadn't received our soup yet and to please take our dinner away. Because it was fish, we asked that they do not bring the same dishes back because they will be cooked too well. Soup comes out and it is luke warm. When dinner comes out, we believe it was the same dishes and fish was cooked and dry. I sent mine back because I couldn't eat it. Now the other four guests ate theirs even though it was not how they ordered it. I had to wait while they ate theirs. Finally my dinner came out and it was as I had ordered and hot. This was fresh. There was a big difference.
I never complain but this was my birthday and I was looking forward to a dinner I knew would be perfect as it always is. This experience was very rare for Shooters and I will certainly return.

Shooters has always been one of our favorite restaurants on the water. It has a wonderful menu, great ambience, polite caring servers and it truly encapsulates the quintessential South Florida waterside dining experience. I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn’t had the opportunity to experience It yet.

We had our 1 year Wedding anniversary here it was such a beautiful atmosphere from the outside seating to the inside. We sat outside by the dock and it was romantic and beautiful. Our drinks, food and desert was delicious. They also served us complimentary champagne for our Anniversary which was so nice! Definitely would recommended to anyone
