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.

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.

We arrive by boat on a threatening night for rain. What impressed us the most was that there was a server who asked us if we had a reservation, which we did, and took us right away to our table. I think this might be a new service for the Shooter’s. Since we had guests it was a lovely way to start our evening. We also had a very nice server named Andrea.

I believe that someone used my credit card and changed lyft in the amount of $87.00 as per my bank investigation.
I would like a refund of that $127 that I wasted there.

The scenery was very homey and welcoming. I would definitely recommend it to a friend for birthday dinners or anniversary’s. My only compliant was the food wasn’t that amazing, it wasn’t bad, but it didn’t met my expectations. Overall it is still an amazing restaurant.

I had made a reservation for 8:30 on a Saturday night and had requested ahead of time to be seated outside. When I got there, they told me it was another 45 minutes to be seated outside, or I could take a table inside. I found that to be extremely disappointing, and there were also plenty of tables outside. To add salt to the wounds, I saw plenty of people taken to those tables outside, long after I had arrived. I went there for an anniversary dinner with my significant other and was disappointed to say the least that we didn't get to experience the true Shooters Waterfront experience.

Went to Shooters for lunch and could not sit outside due to the weather, it rained right before we got there and the management was concerned about patron’s safety. We sat inside, the young man who assisted us was friendly. The menu is very limited at lunch if you do not do the brunch buffet, I opted for a burger which was decent, my friends had fish and chips and lobster roll. We enjoyed our meal, but I was not “star struck “ either, it was a decent burger, my friend stated the fish and chip was all right. We asked for a bottle of Tempranillo, a moment later or waiter came back stating they were out due to paella night the day before. We settled on a cab. The fact we ate inside definitely changed the experience, surprisingly the noise level was perfect, we could hold a conversation very easily. I am not sure I will choose Shooters again for lunch, I was left somewhat underwhelmed. But I will definitely go back for thei happy hour, when I believe you get an excellent deal for your buck.

Tre the manager made the whole experience better. There was no communication between the host and our server. We went for a 30th bday celebration and it was our first time going to shooters... Based on so many good comments from friends... Food is AHHFREAKINGMAZING! SERVICE... Meh. But like I said. The manager brought us champagne and the chocolate layer cake. Sang to us personally... Wow! :) Will come back, the food was so delicious ... Maybe our server was having a bad night.. It happens.

The staff, especially Brent and Michael, were extremely hospitable and provided great service. The drinks and food got to the table in a timely manner. The atmosphere was warm and inviting with the live music. Lately the valet service team was extremely efficient and helpful. I would definitely recommend this place.

The food was excellent, though slightly pricey. The waitress was very good & patient, especially considering the extended time we spent & she allowed us time to visit without constant interruptions or trying to hurry us away.
Really enjoyed the experience & would recommend!

Devin was the best, She was attentive, never had to call her, it’s as if she knew what i needed at that moment lol. We talked about some foodie spots to try out since we’re both locals but my guest was from out of town. She’s one of the best waitress experiences I’ve had while eating out.

Usually excellent service but not this time. Waiter was very slow and didn’t come back to ask how our meal was.
He also charged us for an extra meal, which because it’s an electronic bill we didn’t notice until the receipt was emailed.
I am waiting for a return call from them to solve that issue.
