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.

This restaurant was amazing. From the time we walked in to the time we left, everything was great. The scenary of the water and yachts was a plus to the food experience. Everyone I came with was very pleased with everything and we are looking forward to going back.

Food was cold. Waitress didn’t care. Salad was terrible. Never got dressing. Coconut shrimp was over cooked and fishy. Manager was walking around miserable.

Shooters is definitely a go-to place to eat outdoors -especially if it is arrival day and you want to assimilate into the Florida intercostal vibe. Nothing fancy yet no slobs here.

Our waitress Stephanie’s negative attitude showed cause she comes over and says: what do you want to eat? Instead of being friendly. She seemed very overwhelmed and it showed. I had been planning for over a month to surprise my fiancé and my son for their birthdays there. When we were brought to our cabana the table was very dirty from previous customers. We had Stephanie twice to please clean table and on the 3 time she came over with napkins snd left them on table cause she didn’t want to clean table for us. We waited over 20 mins for someone to come by to greet us, take our orders. My fiancé had to get up to find a waiter. It seems like waiters were more interested in larger tables to give them attention and to maybe get a bigger tip. The way our waitress was very rude, not friendly at all and very cold made our night horrible and left quickly cause I felt like my surprise for my fiancé and my son were ruined. Asked for manager Robson and he apologized and said we will be taken care of and I asked him to switch our waitress, but by then our night was ruined. The cabana was dirty, not cleaned, seats were stained and ambience was not fun at all. We got our bill and I honestly wasn’t expecting anything for free, but for our inconvenience the manager could of taken something off the bill for our troubles. SHOOTERS WATERFRONT IS NOT THE PLACE

This was our second time at Shooters and my husband brought me for my birthday. Our meal took way too long to arrive. we ordered 2 entrees one of which was a cold sandwich. I noticed several larger parties that got sat close to 30 min. after us receive their meals befor we did. our entire lunch took 2hrs. and the pineapple upsidedown cake we ordered to go was old, dry and the fruit on top was already starting to go bad. As a professionaly trained pastry chef of 10 years i couldn’t understand how such a reputable establishment would serve something so terrible. it really was the most disappointing part of the meal.

The customer service and food was great. However, there was a swarm of flies that covered the area where we were dining outside. Unfortunately the restaurant could not offer any solution other than its normal for outdoor seating. I’ve dined at many outdoor restaurants and I’ve never experienced that issue. It was a bit disappointing that while trying to eat our dinner we had to continuously swat at flies.

Flatbread appetizer was tasty. Entree of Salmon was very skimpy for the price. Besides that, my wife's salmon had 5 large bones. The server took them back to show the Chef, but nothing was done about it. Not even an apology. Don't think we will be back.

Deanna, our server was funny and charming. The food was very good but the service and ambiance was better. The view was terrific and the atmosphere was very relaxing. They really met the task of helping us celebrate the birthday of a dear friend. I will remember Shooters as a fun place with good food and great service when I come back to Fort Lauderdale from New York. Hopefully next time it will be with my hubby!

Gorgeous Views and Excellent Service!!!

Naturally, we sat outside to take advantage of the views and lovely weather. My aunt and mother ordered the roasted chicken. Unfortunately, the chicken was very bland. It’s a pity because it was the one thing we didn’t like about our experience. I had the Mahi Mahi Tacos and they were wonderful. Drinks were also quite good. We would return, but for you who is reading this review and wondering if you should go definitely GO, but DON’T order the roasted chicken 😊😊

The staff were very warm and engaged us every step of the way.
Adam, ensured that our meal selection were enjoyable with his knowledge of the menu. John topped off the experience with introducing an extremely tasty dessert(picture attached). Tim, gentleman parking the boats, also shared his experience with boats and kept very entertaining conversations.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit and will definitely be back soon.
