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.

It was my boyfriend’s birthday. Everything was more than I expected. I had a wonderful table. My server Diana was amazing. She was well informed of the menu. She sold us in the Sea bass. She was very attentive. She even had the band sing happy birthday. I could not have asked for a better night. Thank you Shooters, you owe me nothing!

It is an amazing place. Goes on forever. Had to wait to get seated which was annoying but it was worth it. We loved our waiter Danielle. She was delightful.

Our server, Tara was extra helpful and very attentive to our needs. The calamari was too salty though but they replaced it and was very good! Love the place.. ambience was breathtaking!!!

Consistently a good meal, and on the water with a beautiful view! Service is always very friendly and they try hard to please. One of our top go to spots for dinner, and weekend lunch.

We used Open Table to set our reservation at 1:00pm. We arrived on time and checked in, however we weren't sat until 1:45. Why even make a reservation if we must still stand around and wait? Please note we confirmed via telephone and text that we were arriving at 1pm. The crowd has changed at Shooters and we will not be returning. However our server David was amazing.

We have visited Fort Lauderdale three times in the past 6 weeks. The first weekend we had brunch at Shooters for the first time. We made sure to get reservations for every visit after. We are coming back in February and July and plan on making brunch reservations again. Top not food and you can’t beat the location!

The staff was excellent and the ambience was fun and lighthearted. The food on the other hand leaves much to be desired. The carving station offered a shoe leather type top round roast completely overdone and your run-of-the-mill ham. The waffles were decent but they use the worst possible “ breakfast syrup”. You would think they would have real maple syrup possibly even warm. Instead you got a plastic cup with some high fructose corn syrup and sugar. A potato like home fries are heavy laden with green peppers which is not always agreeable for people with allergies and/or heartburn issues. The sushi was extremely low grade and the seafood salad used sea legs which is about as nasty as you can get. The bacon what is probably the salty as bacon I have ever eaten. The breakfast sausage was nothing special the scrambled eggs were dry. However, wild gazing upon some of the à la cart menu‘s I realized that was Probably the way to go. Lovely French toast, sexy hamburgers and very appetizing shrimp and seafood entrées. I’ll just have to do it a little bit different next time.

Would have given 5 stars if not for a few hiccups at the beginning with the hosting staff not very customer friendly once seated very happy with the remainder of the experience.

What a way to show someone that they matter. The food was absolutely amazing and the waitress, Valarie J, was the star of the whole show. I enjoyed spending a wonderful evening by the water taking in an overall breathtaking experience. Thank you so much Valarie for making the evening so wonderful and the wonderful picture you took of us. Definitely a night that will be remembered! If you have the chance to be waited on by Valarie I promise the best service and interactions!!
