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.

I made a reservation for four a couple of days ago. We arrived a few minutes before the appointed time, and a few minutes later the hostess offered a table in the inside. I had reserved an outside table. Apparently our table was further reserved for people that ware not even there. Then, she offered an upstairs table.
Absolutely the worst evening for my guests and me.
Will not return.

We were in a party of 10 at two different tables, we had amazing service and the food was terrific. It was great sitting outside with a view of the waterway and boats passing by. The band started playing around 6 PM I think, it was very good. And it wasn’t too loud. Highly recommend this place

The shrimp and scallop dish was amazing! The tables inside were nicely spaced out socially distanced. Shooters is always a great choice for safe eating during the pandemic!

Shooters is our go-to place for great lunches and dinners on the intracoastal. The atmosphere, food and service are always spot on. During this time of COVID we felt extremely comfortable even with valet parking. Can’t wait to go back.

I barely touched the food and ask if I would be able to get something different and still had to pay for something I didn’t touch and the waiter was rude and stated that it’s a lot of money to make the food when I’m the one having to pay for something I didn’t touch.

I made a 830 pm reservation for a birthday dinner, I arrived early and waited to be seated no problem. After I was seated for 40 minute (9:10 pm)I still didn’t have a waitress. When speaking to the manager she then told me that I have 5 minutes to order because their kitchen closes at 9:15pm. I then ask for a name to make a complaint and she tells me that she doesn’t know the name. She then tells me that they all wear name tags and I should’ve read it. All in all, I left shooters and did not get to order nor celebrate the birthday dinner I went for. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Good food and still one of the best locations around. If they still had prime rib it would be 5 across the board.

When I got there, I was greeted nicely and was asked of my name. The waiting time was very short and expeditious. My companion and I sat outside in the shade. The server we had was very nice, helpful, and outstanding. She fulfilled our every needs. Our food took at least 10-15 minutes to come. Meanwhile, we enjoyed the fresh breeze, the views of boats passing by, and even took pictures. I enjoyed everything about my first visit here. I would definitely come here again!

Awesome! The tables are adequately spaced in the huge outdoor dining area. The staff are attentive and friendly, the place is clean and the view is spectacular! For such a hot spot you would expect mediocre food; NOT here! The food is excellent.

I don’t rate restaurants five stars often but this one deserves it!
