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.

Wow! Great food, great ambiance, perfect Sunday brunch! My husband and I were visiting Fort Lauderdale for a few days, post cruise. I was looking for a good place for Sunday brunch on our last day in Fort Lauderdale, and of course my fellow Yelpers didn't disappoint! I did my research, and made a reservation a couple of weeks ago and I'm glad that I did because the restaurant was full! We arrived at 11, and we were seated, right away. We were torn between the buffet and ordering off the menu. We ultimately decided to order off the menu and we were not disappointed! I started with a mojito and my husband ordered the bottomless mimosa (his glass was never empty). We started with the shrimp cocktail, 5 jumbo shrimp, perfectly chilled and presented. For our entrees, my husband ordered the steak and eggs. I ordered the soy ginger glazed salmon over saffron quinoa, with kale ribbons. I also ordered a side of brussel sprouts and ciabatta bread. My husband enjoyed his steak (10 oz), eggs and breakfast potatoes. I truly enjoyed my entree, the salmon and quinoa was the perfect pairing. The brussel sprouts were perfectly cooked as well. The bread was served warm and fresh. After brunch, we sat outside to enjoy the beautiful waterfront!

I typically have a great experience but my last visit was horrible. We pulled up and have valet park our vehicle. We paid as we exited the vehicle and told the attendant to keep the change. We go in and have lunch. We ordered the lamb chops, salmon with ginger glaze and the Baked Alaska. The food was phenomenal, as always. Our waitress didn’t come back to the table and eventually our drinks and waters ran out. When we tried to pay the tab the tablets weren’t working so that was frustrating. We leave and after valet brings the vehicle, one attendant refused to close the passenger door. I said goodbye to him and he replies “Didn’t you forget something?!” I replied no and he said “You didn’t pay for parking.” We both (in unison) said “We’ve already paid.” The guy just stood there with the door open. I repeated “We’ve already paid. I told you to keep the change remember?” He then says never mind and walks off as if we hadn’t paid. That was rude and unprofessional.

They need better options for vegan especially for brunch. They need a better rainy day plan for outside because that pushed our appointment back a whole hour. Unacceptable! We live in Florida and it rains so have a rainy day plan so that service doesn’t get backed up! The server was very nice and friendly and the managers offered everyone appetizers for the delay. That was a nice touch for the poor wait time.

We had a reservation and arrived on time, we were seated within 5 minutes, the server explained the brunch all you can eat. We had a vegan on our party, and they had vegan options for her. Place is nice and clean with great views of the river, good food, great ambience, good service

The waitress didn’t see if we needed anything. I had to flag her down to get ketchup. My hamburger was dry with no flavor. My friend salad wasn’t good. The shrimp and salmon she ordered to go in the salad was flavorful. She separated the meat and didn’t eat the salad.

Came here after a trip to the Aquarium. Nice array of food choices. 3 parties opted for the perch while I had the walleye bites, The perch was very good, walleye just okay, we also took key lime pie to go and that was delicious as well,

Wonderful restaurant in an amazing setting. Our server, Manny, was so attentive and very knowledgeable. The flatbread is incredible. My lobster roll was a bit bland and my wife’s sushi was plated on a hot sauce that burnt her palate. The desert was out of this world.

Apart from the location, which is very good this meal was somewhat disappointing.
Cold reception but efficient service. Food ok. Overall like eating in a very busy and noisy railway station.
