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.

Pretty hot outside with only one big fan.. menu was pretty small as far as food choices and not very kid friendly. Would definitely recommend for adults only due to prices and menu size.

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

4th July at the waterfront - great position to watch the world go by and the fireworks go off. We started with the Cheese and fruit platter: had we known how big it was we might have rethought our entrees but, hey go.

I had the Cajun Shrimp pasta, my other half chose the cheeseburger. Both cooked perfectly.

With 50% off all drinks I decided to push the boat out and asked for a liqueur coffee with Grand Marnier. What came up was a regular coffee and an enormous brandy balloon half-filled with Grand Marnier. Even after drinking some down from the glass, there was still more than enough to top up three cups of coffee.

Lovely meal, good ambience, great service and value, and all unrushed.

Never had a bad meal here.

My only thought is that they're now charging $5 for the previously complimentary valet parking, but it's only a minor thing, although if the parking was validated by a meal receipt it might put off less people.

Took the water taxi from downtown to Shooters. Used Open Table to make the reservation on the boat. Got there and was seated quickly. It was Happy Hour on the 4th of July, so enjoyed some good drink and shrimp cocktail. I had the Fish and Chips and my husband had Scallops both were tasty. Finished with a giant Chocolate Cake with plenty to take home. Great Fun and Food!

The view was fantastic, and the outdoor seating area was just so wonderful and comfortable. The service was amazing, food came out fast, and our server was very nice. The drinks here are delicious, and the ambiance was 5-star. I would recommend Shooters for a Sunday brunch, weekend lunch with friends, or for a romantic date (get some drinks and enjoy the waterfront view!). I will definitely be back!

Nice place overall, but we had multiple issues with our food. They were quick to try to resolve things, but the experience was kind of a mess, and the food wasn’t that great. The best thing was the calamari–really great breading on that.

It was graduation not no one acknowledged it or did anything. I specified on Open Table reservation. It was servers first night and she was not well trained at all. All the food came wrong, had to ask for bread and ice and water refills numerous times. She clearly was not trained well and should h e had someone shadowing her.

Took my wife here for our 6 year Anniversary and Wasn't Disappointed. This was located right on the water, the food was Amazing, service was top notch and Bob our waiter was super friendly. He Even went out of his way to give us 2 glasses of champagne on the house for our Anniversary, that was above and beyond!! First time there and we WILL return when we revisit the East Coast!! NO Complaints whatsoever, but do make reservations as with their food and location are Very busy, and I can see why....
