Pros: Service was great, food was tasty and we appreciated the complimentary drinks as a anniversary gift.

Cons: Live music was a little loud. We had to shout just so the waiter could hear us.

Went to celebrate a birthday that the wait staff didn’t even acknowledge however when a girl called the day before to confirm the reservation she acknowledged the birthday. The waitress appeared to not be please with the fact that we didn’t want to order an appetizer and was not at all friendly. The food was great which is why we have continued to go back.

The restaurant was enormous & had plenty of outside seating on the canal. Boats were tying up to their dock to dine & the people watching was great. Our meal was a little pricy but very good. The wait staff was excellent.

Only issue is big groups around fire pit can be a bit annoying and obnoxious for other diners. Otherwise, awesome.

Always enjoyable outside by the water. Cobb salad lettuce was supposed to be tossed with the dressing it wasn’t. Burger was slightly over cooked but wasn’t hot neither were the fries. Drinks were good as always. Been going there for 39 years

Waited an hour even with reservations. Once we sat took over 30 minutes to get our drinks. Then when our food came the order for an item was incorrect. Would not go back for dinner.
We will only go on Sundays for brunch. Atmosphere and food much better on Sundays. Ans the service is much better Sundays

I always love Shooters- especially if you’re outside on a nice night. Anytime someone comes in from out of town and I want a nice place to take them for brunch or happy hour I go to Shooters.

We went to Shooter’s with another couple from out of town (our second visit in two weeks), and ordered drinks and appetizers while we looked at the dinner menu. When the drinks were brought one of our visitors asked for some bread to have with the drinks, and the waiter immediately told us it would $4. We kind of laughed and said “well that’s one dollar per person, but we do want the bread” and he brought out a basket a short while later with five thin slices of French bread in it. We then went on to order a full dinner and another round of drinks. The final bill totaled more than $200, and the included the $4 bread charge. Thinking about it the next day we all agreed that with that kind of full meal, a restaurant should not charge $4 for five thin slices of French bread, so I called and told the manager I thought that it was a poor policy. He became extremely defensive, and basically said that is their policy, and they train their staff to make sure that people requesting bread know they will be charged $4 as we were told when we asked for it. I asked him to tell the owners about our displeasure and get back to me, but of course he never did. Although the food was good, Shooter’s is not the only game in town, and I strongly recommend as an alternative Blue Moon Seafood Company which is just up the road on A1A. It has food that is just as good, or better, has a similar outdoor seating area on the intracoastal waterway, and doesn’t charge for a full basket of a variety of bread. Needless to say, based on their attitude, we will not be going back to Shooters!

We have been to Shooters many times but this time , we were not satisfied with the service and/or server's treatment. We were celebrating a special event. We were given a table by the bar by the entrance. We went to Shooters to celebrate my parent's anniversary, we were looking forward to have a nice meal by the water. Food was good, well my veggie pasta was too salty. When we got out table, I asked our server to bring us bread/rolls . Our server never informed that there was a charge for the bread - We do not recall any restaurants charging for bread - We told her about the charge when we got our check and she was very sarcastic about it saying she didnt tell us about and "high end restaurants" charge for bread, Shooters is a high end restaurant. We have been to many high end restaurants i.e. Capital Grill, Abe & Louie's, Morton's and never paid for bread. We would have been very happy to pay for it but our server failed to give us proper notice about the charge. When she was informed about it, she had an attitude and did not offer to take care of it.

This place was great. Food was delicious. Right on the water. Tables were spaced apart so that you weren't sitting on top of each other. Loved it!

Hostess was rude and seemed dismissive. Although I had specifically requested outside dining, she advised that that request very often could not be accommodated, and was their discretion to seating. When we were seated, we were taken to the furthest end of the restaurant. This in spite of her promising to seat us outside if we waited. This young lady definitely failed her customer training class. She ruined what otherwise would have been a very pleasant dining experience.

The grouper was great and the clam chowder was good! Service was alright. However, we reserved for a special occasion for my 70th birthday, but my birthday was never acknowledged by any of the staff at the restaurant. Not big deal, but thought maybe a complimentary dessert would have been a good jester.

Food and drinks are quite pricey, but I knew that beforehand so no complaints about that . . . I only mention this to alert those on a tight budget who may not want to spend a hundred dollars or more for a dinner for two.

Arrived by boat DAVE dock master was very efficient and professional. Sat at bar for HH very busy. Then to a table on the grass . Orders the shrimp and scallops but didn’t want the shrimp no problem got one or two more scallops. G had the chicken Cobb salad which looked refreshing. Service was good no pressure didn’t feel rushed at all. Plus they gave a a dessert each with a candle for our anniversary. Nice touch thank you

Thank you Anthony for making our visit so memorable! We really enjoyed your service, and surprising me with the chocolate cake for my "birthday" made my whole week. We really enjoyed our food, the outdoor, and the atmosphere of the restaurant. Thanks again for a great night!

The food quality is very good. I would not say it is outstanding as compared to the top dining spots in Fort Lauderdale, but it is good and at a reasonable price. The outside seating area on the intercostal is hard to beat. The service we received was top notch. We will definitely go back.

On a beautiful day I South Florida enjoying a meal outside is as good as it gets. Shooters has a very diverse menu, offering something for everyone. You can enjoy a cocktail, glass of wine or soft drink with your meal. I definitely recommend Shooters if your looking for a quiet place to dine with a great ambiance.

Had reservations- made them 48 hrs prior, brought confirmation w me. they could not find, saw tables with reserved signs but they did not have any for my party of 4 - When seated I asked the hostess and she said we were bring seated as a walk in and not someone with reservations. Finally put me on the turf - Over 35 minutes to order a drink and being acknowledged by waitstaff over 1 3/4 hrs to have lunch delivered. - Boats came up without reservations and were seated right away in the reserved seats - I asked the boat people and they said they did not have reservations. Food was great, view was great - service was not good.

First time at Shooters. On vacation in Southern Florida. The food was outstanding! Fish and chips were unbelievable! Will definitely stop back next time we are in the area! I can’t forget to mention view. Out table was right next to the dock overlooking the bay. Great experience! Would highly recommend.

Shooters has been a fvorie of ours for 30+ years - after the remodel a few yrs back we had concerns it might lose its ambience. However, other some slowness in being served when very busy, it's all just as good as in the past!
The offering of premium brands at their Happy Hour, along with a good selection of HH foods, has been a definite draw for us, keeping Shooters one of the locations of choice for us.
