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.

Never been there for dinner, only brunch. So we tried it for a friends birthday dinner. We had a great server, Michelle, she recommended drinks and apps for us that were all delicious. The decor was beautiful, and the food was awesome! Everyone was kinda pleasantly surprised by how great all our entrees were. The desserts, we had 2 (flan & pb bar), both outrageous!! Soooo goooood!!

Everything was great, we got there with 20-30 minutes left to spare for brunch and the bottomless mimosas but our server Amanda was phenomenal, funny, and very accommodating. She put in our orders very fast so that we would not miss out on the brunch menu and mimosas and made us feel like the most important guests of the day. We were also celebrating my best friends 30th bday and she brought out a cute little treat with a candle to celebrate. We were late for our reservation but dont regret it because otherwise we might not have gotten to have such a wonderful experience with Amanda. We even asked to speak with a manager un person to let him know how awesome she was.

Thank you again Amanda!

We’ve gone to Shooters a few times in parties of 2 or 3 and had really good experiences with the food. This time we had a group of 8, and although the service was excellent (thank you, Valerie), most of our meals were almost cold. One guest said her shrimps were rubbery, and everyone who had bread said it might have been microwaved.

Valerie, our server, was extremely attentive and offered to take pictures and gave us quality time. Overall our party quite enjoyed the ambiance.

We could only get a reservation for Brunch to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. The service was very good. We ate outside which was nice but because it was a warm day we got a bit sweaty so that may not have been a good choice. My husband who has an allergy to shellfish did not have too many choices and unfortunately we could not order anything from the dinner menu. But overall the food was good. Will go back but for dinner instead.

Beautiful views. Great service. Brunch buffet was not great. Not worth $40 food quality wasn’t good and servers at the buffet were not friendly. Probably better to order a meal off the regular menu.

We arrived on time and were seated right away. I was still asked and was very happy to be seated outside. I was personally glad the chairs weren't the basket style wicker chairs seen online.
The ambience was great. Noise level was appreciable; we could hold a conversation without competition; massive plus.
Everything from there was very timely, service was the right balance of personable and professional. Thanks very much Rorey!! I hate people serving me food from behind a robotic veil. Keep things as they are. No juke joint crazy behaviour.
We'll be back.

Friends and I dined at Shooters for a nice meal on Friday evening. The ambiance was great, the staff, was friendly, and the food was good.
My only complaint, is when I informed our server of my daily allergy, and asked for recommendations; she suggested salad without cheese. I was really looking forward to some quality seafood since we were visiting from Chicago.

All 5 of my guest loved the food selectiin, atmosphere and waiter. We were sitted on time and able to pick our table, since so windy outside wanted inside table. Everyone very helpful! Parking is easy, public parking across the street or only $5 to valet. Beautiful view!

The view was beautiful and service was great. We sat outside by the water and we could see the boats passing. My friends and I went on a Saturday which we found out if we want to dance and listen to more upbeat music we should go on Sunday. If you're into live bands then go on a Saturday. Overall experience was great. I'd go again and so would my friends.
