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.

Great experience. I recommend it highly. Great food, service, atmosphere. We had a nice table on the water. It was a little warm that evening which was uncomfortable for dining al fresco, but still nice! Our server was Christopher. He was AWESOME! Knowledgeable, friendly and quick to our needs. DEUCES! It was was of 5th anniversary in which the staff congradulated us when we arrived. I mentioned it when we made the reservation. We'll be back!😀😊👍

Very nice we loved sitting in front of the water. Only thing was that we sat in front of where a boat parked so people on the boat were walking back and forth right next to our table.

Horrible service from the hostess and manager to boot! Table not ready, searing policy ineffective and overall poor experience for a high price tag! Attitude...attitude...attitude!! Not friendly or accommodating! Bad experience overall and given the wrong information when reservation was made from whomever answered the phone about seating, space, happy hour and pricing!! BAD BAD BAD ALL BAD!!

Some of the best calamari I’ve had. The fettuccine shrimp was super good too and you can’t go wrong with the key lime Alaska! Highly recommend. We dined right next to the water and was a wonderful dining experience!

This restaurant was beautiful. The scenery was amazing, the food was delicious & our server Athena was great!
We sat outdoors which was great, the only downside is that there aren’t many fans for when it’s really hot. But I’d definitely come back.

Wonderful atmosphere, very welcoming and the staff was just exceptional. My waiter, Alex, was extremely attentive and had impeccable timing. Never left us needing or wanting anything, he truly knew how to gauge the situation and engage accordingly. I am from Miami and the drive up to Ft. Lauderdale is worth it if you are looking for a restaurant with refinement and a great atmosphere. Gorgeous view of the water as well. Planning on my next return!

Really poor experience. Started with a phone call an hour before our reservation time to say that due to the weather, they wouldn’t be able to honor our original reservation time and that it would be delayed. I understand that some of their tables are outside but the inside is huge. They wouldn’t even provide an idea of how delayed it would be. We decided to try it anyway.
Once we arrived and were finally seated, we were handed dirty menus. Our server didn’t stop at our table for some time and was not attentive during our meal. Several tables around us seemed to also have issues with the service. Iced tea was never refilled.
Food was nothing special. We really didn’t enjoy anything about this restaurant.

Chelsea was a very nice server. Veronica only wanted to assist her tables and didn't want to provide a straw for our table since she wasn't our server. Overall I had a nice experience.

This is our second time to Shooters. We went back in 2016 on a rainy day in January but this time, it was a beautiful evening in July and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the live music and happy hour! Oli was great - thanks again! :)

We are so glad we came here! Many people recommended but we thought they were the same as the Cleveland Shooters which isn’t good. They are NOT the same. Different owners. They are terrific!!! Great food, service and view. Definitely recommend!
