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.

We have loved Shooters for years but there menu isn’t much to speak of! For the prices, you should have a better menu! It is a new menu & the old one was better!! Love sitting outside! Waiter was great!

We had lunch here 2 times . The servers here are just wonderful and have great memories it seems. We sat on the front patio and enjoyed the view with our delicious wine and lunch. Must try!

Disappointed! Made a reservation for outside dining. They were building a tent for the boat parade (on a Wednesday at 11:30am) and we were seated LITERALLY in the middle of it. Not to the far right or left where there was no construction and plenty of empty tables but actually 12 inches from the process! Encountered the loudest noises as they threw down metal pipes (I have video) to the ground continuously. Had to leave when they unfurled the tent inches from our seats and the stench of dirty plastic overtook our lunch. The waiter was apologetic but made no move to try to relocate us or do anything to stop the madness. Not sure where management was that day but the waiter could “not locate them”. I have a business and even when things are behind my control and go wrong we try our best to think first of our clients. Very sad as I was bringing an out of town guest and was so excited to show her the restaurant. Never again.

Shrimp cajun pasta was amazing!

I would pass on the calamari - but take full advantage of the desserts.

The ambiance was amazing!!!!

The bamboo roll was delicious! The brine was perfect in the oysters! Many different lunch options, just a bit pricey. So glad we went! I would definitely recommend Shooters!!

I had never been and I was with some friends from out of town that wanted to eat near the water. This place was a long shot, and it ended up exceeding all expectations! I live in Miami but will definitely be back. Food was really good, location right next to the water is exactly what we wanted and the prices are more than reasonable.

Loved it and will recommend it!

Food was just ok. Some dishes were good and some not so good. Their biggest problem is their service. Silverware not replaced, water not filled, food not spaced properly. They also have an outdoor area that abuts their parking lot. The space itself seems cold, but the worst part are the headlights, noise and exhaust form cars being parked. I won’t go back.

From the moment we set down something was not right. The service was off and it went down hill. We ordered an appetizer that never arrived. We finally paid for the drinks and appetizer and left.
