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.

There’s a reason behind our longevity: We invite you to see for yourself.

    The food didn't come out right. The hot food was cold and the salads weren't prepared as requested. The server tried hard, but she seemed to be overwhelmed. Overall, the experience was fine...and we will be back. But, for this price, I would expect better quality.

    It breaks your heart to see waiters overwhelmed by the amount of people and tables they have to attend. I am sure our waiter did his best but it is disappointing that a the company that runs this place is doing a lame job. Overworked waiters, lack of grace from the hostesses (first impressions) is a recipe for a poor dining experience. The food was 4.2 out of 10 (Mahi).

    Food was delicious. Service wasn’t too great. We were celebrating our first wedding anniversary and heard another waiter ask his table if they were celebrating anything. Only saw our waiter to take our order and collect the bill. A little disappointed.

    Food is awesome but the service was TERRIBLE! Server brought the food and didn’t bring us silverware; after waiting for about 10 minutes, we stopped a waitress and asked for it. Then we ran out of water on our glasses and after waiting we stopped another waiter and asked for water and napkins… Our original waiter only showed up at the end of our meal to bring us the check. It was bad! Really bad for a nice place like this.

    Father’s Day Brunch was crowded as expected We sat outside and the view was beautiful. The coconut shrimp cam right away. They were delicious. However the rest of the order took forever to arrive at the table My flatbread was cold and so were the rest of the entree. I will never go back on a holiday.

    The food was great. The roast beef, however wasn’t tender. It was kind of dry. Also, I felt like all the food in the buffet should have been covered because there were flies flying around. The buffet was $55 pp, and I was under the impression that it was $45. At least that was what it said online. Apparently, they upped the price for Father’s Day. That wasn’t cool. I don’t think we all would have paid $55 each had we known. Honestly, I’m not sure if I would have chosen the buffet at all. The selection wasn’t as great. They had waffles, crepes, and omelets, but no pancakes or French toast. Also, what buffet doesn’t include basic drinks, like orange or apple juice and sodas. Again, I wouldn’t have paid $55 had I known. Secondly, the service wasn’t that great. I made a reservation and had to wait 20-25 minutes to be seated. When they sat us outside, I asked the person if we just get the buffet or wait. I was advised that we could just go to the buffet. When we came back, there was a chair missing from our table and the menus were gone. The waitress said she didn’t know. As I watched other persons who were seated, I saw their waiter immediately come and tell them their options and so forth. Our waitress wasn’t the best. However, the waiter we observed was on top of it with his tables. This was my second time coming but my first experience was much better. I’d recommend but definitely advise.

    Besides my server and the drinks... this place is WAY overrated. People sneezing on the buffet, licking their fingers while touching it.... hence my decision to order off the menu and the only thing good were the fries. Olivia was an amazing server. The ambiance was NOT what I would have expected for waterfront dining. Having lived in this area for 20 years there is OBVIOUSLY a reason I have NEVER been to this restaurant and would not return. Could not have gottent out of there quick enough. They were fully staffed from what I could see. But the clientele and the food. Just horrible.

    Worst service I’ve been to in a while. Made reservations a few days earlier and when I got there, they said I had to wait to get seated outside and I said ok no problem an hour later they said there was no outside seating anymore so they sat me inside… the waiter literally only came to our table twice, to ask For our order and to give us our check. Overall did not like it

    Came to shooters to celebrate my birthday with my family. We were seated in the back by the water because we had our dog with us. The place was lovely and the sever was good. However, when the food came to the table our table were invade by swarms of flies, it was very annoy. We asked the waiter if there was something he can do or get us a different table, he just apologized and said " you guys ordered a lot of seafood so the flies come". We had to eat our food rather quick while trying to swat the flies away. It became a very unpleasant experience. This place is great if you eat indoors. The food is good the drinks are good but do not dine outdoors if you plan to order any food.

    Went here for my birthday dinner. The girl at the front when we initially walked in was incredibly rude. She shouldn’t be the first contact for this establishment. I wish I would’ve gotten her name. She was wearing black glasses. I’ve been going here for years when I’m in town visiting my friend but will more than likely never go back. My order came out wrong which they did fix, but for the amount of money per plate it should’ve been better quality. I was not impressed. Definitely gone down hill from the last visit.

    If you're looking for fresh oysters on the intercoastal, this is the place! Tasty, fresh & beautifully displayed. Everything else we ordered was just "ok": sushi rolls & ahi seared salad, something we could have gotten at home-not fresh like you'd expect here in FTL.

    We made reservations for Friday, June 17 for my hubby’s Birthday. We were greeted and seated quickly. Hostess was friendly. Sean the server was friendly, thorough and efficient. He made the experience so enjoyable. We had a great time, food was delicious and service was over the top good. I will request Sean when we go back. He was top notch. It was a memorable Birthday for sure. 😊

    Our server Antonio was amazing! He broke down the menu for us first timers & gave us some great recommendations. The dockside margarita & watermelon mint cooler did not disappoint. Best calamari we’ve had this far. The Roasted Rosemary chicken was out of this world & the portioning was large. My boyfriend had the Cajun shrimp fettuccine & said it was the best he’s ever had. The atmosphere was incredible, on the water as the sunset. 10/10 would recommend!

    This was our first time here, and my wife and I were not disappointed. Food and service were superb. Watching the boats pass by made a great atmosphere. Definitely enjoy outdoor seating but make sure the sun is (or soon will be) behind the buildings across the intercostal. It makes all the difference.
