Seafood
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.

The food and service were good; however, the valet was very standoffish. They did not speak nor walk up to the car. They remained at their desk until I walked up and handed them the keys. Once we walked out to leave, they stood at the table and I had to ask who can help me.

Shooters Waterfront was a nice evening out but the variety in sea food was not what I expected it was limited. The staff was great and the outside venue was pretty cool overall a good experience.

We came by boat and waited 15 before someone acknowledged us. We ate outside. The band was great.

We had a wonderful dinner outside on the patio. John our server went above and beyond. His menu suggestions were spot on. We felt very comfortable dining after all the restrictions were lifted.

First time going for my birthday dinner. Very nice place. Good view. Food was average but the drinks were better. Great place for a birthday dinner with close family and friends or ladies night.

We had a fantastic meal as we had been dying for oysters during the pandemic quarantine. We had oysters, lamb chop lollipops and a lobster roll... basically our favorite foods. All the food (and drink) was excellent. The view was amazing as usual despite the rain. Will definitely return.

Was visiting town again and Shooters is always a must! Food and atmosphere was great as always. Server John was amazing and on top of his game. The steps they’ve taken to be cautious during the reopening showed through and it was nice to be dining out and feel good about it.

The food was delicious, and service was fabulous as usual! Several careful considerations were in place to ensure cleanliness and social distancing- including only allowing one person at a time in the restroom. Kudos to shooters!

It was nice to be able to eat with that peace of mind and enjoy a delicious meal. Masks must be worn while walking about, but you can take them off at your table which is distanced from other tables. This was my first time dining out post quarantine, and I hope all restaurants in the area have taken as many precautions as Shooters.

French dip was very fatty and loaded with onions but menu did not mention anything about onions...
Fish tacos were delicious!

Great experience though and we all felt safe in the environment Shooters provided us!

Our service was top of the line! Our waitress was friendly and we got visited by many servers who helped . The meats were fresh and we were served the salad bar by workers. Isadora is definitely someone to request when you visit !

Good overall experience, beside the unpleasant valet parking attendant. He had an attitude the minute I brought my car in. Additionally, as I walked to the parking lot to get my car because they were done working for the night, I found out that he had left the passenger window all the way down.

First time out since opening everything was perfect as it was in the past. Felt very safe all employees wore masks gloves and noticed cleaning going on all around tables were set up a a perfect distance and nicely done so you didn’t feel like it was a police crime scene. Still my favorite place

Food was excellent. The service was okay. Some food was brought out when we were not ready for it, and it took awhile to get dressing for the salad (we asked for it on the side). Also took time to get some of our drinks. She was very pleasant, but could have been a bit more on top of it.

Our waiter and seater were outstanding. The view is always amazing and we had a good table. The food is good, not gourmet, but a great Lobster Roll, Lemon Chicken, and burger. I don't recommend the paiaya. Specialty cocktails are fabulous. Great place overall. Given the circumstances of Coronavirus, we were happily seated away from others outdoors.

My first visited this location was with friends from out of town it was very nice.

For this visit, I brought my parents to celebrate their March birthdays. Unfortunately this visit was less than pleasurable. To start, although the restaurant wasn't busy, the service was very slow. In addition, our food took forever to come to the table and when it did, it was cold. I’m very disappointed in my decision of choosing this location for my parents special day.
