About Shooters Waterfront

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.

The outside patio is such a wonderful place to eat. My scallops and shrimp were fabulous. The fish and chips were really good but a little oily. Unfortunately the mahi mahi tacos was lacking in flavour. Will try again sometime.

We've gone to Shooters many times and always enjoy taking friends and family from out of for lunch or dinner. The menu is full of options, and everything I've had there is tasty and well presented. Good wait staff and usually not a long wait with reservations. The outdoor seating shows off the best of Ft. Lauderdale.

We had a ball! Great time in a terrific setting. The bartenders are wonderful and know how to make a drink. We had a table outside which was so enjoyable. After our meal, we sat around the firepit with our delicious, over-sized chocolate cake. The night could not have ended better.\nThank you Shooters!

Decided to try Shooters for the first time for date night, and it was fantastic. I made a reservation (highly recommend doing that, as it is a busy place), and we were seated outside right on the water--beautiful. Food was great and arrived timely. Our server Dustin was even better, attentive but not overwhelming. Overall, great experience.

We had a reservation but the reception was chaotic and unwelcoming. We waited for half an hour amid vague promises that a table would be forthcoming. Finally asked to be sat at a table that hadn't been cleared and that worked, after another long wait, and they did indeed seat us at a table that had not been cleared or cleaned. They seem to have more customers than they want and would have thanked us for going someplace else. The brunch food was nothing special and over-priced. Next time we will go someplace else.

Make sure you get a good table before you sit down, because our table was stuck behind a dark sliding door so couldn't see the water. The place was quite busy from 630-730pm on Sunday, but after that there were many open tables around and I wish they would've offered to let us move for our dessert. The service was interminably slow and the waitress offered to give us a credit on our bill which was nice.

I am a Shooters fan. So I decided to have several out of town guests have dinner with my wife and I their this Sunday evening. \nDisappointed tonight. Not the usually great service that I come to know at Shooters. Guess we all can have a bad day. Just hope it not a change in management because everything went bad from the moment we walked in.

I had made a reservation for 11:30 and had arrived at 11:25 just in case. The hostess at the computer seemed overwhelmed while a couple others stood behind waiting on instructions from her. I mentioned wanting to wait outside since we were waiting for an outdoor table and the hostess agreed. 15 mins later, and our table still wasnt ready. I mentioned the reservation to the hostess and her response was 'Normally people wait at the hostess stand when they come on, we've been looking for you for over 10 mins which is why you haven't been seated.' There were a couple other quarrels I had with her until we decided to just sit down at a random table. The company and setting was great, the waitress was very pleasant and friendly. The food is mediocre, not to mention three of the people who joined us ended up having a mild form of food poisoning. I probably will never go back... Which is too bad because it is such a good location.

Although we had a 7:30 pm reservation, we were not seated until 8 pm. Service was just acceptable, while the location was superb. The food was good, not great. The blackened Mahi sandwich was thin but still flavorful. The curried mahi served on risotto was a thicker piece of fish and the rice was moist with good seasoning. The cobb salad was large and looked great. Would we go back? If in the area, and at a less busy time, perhaps. BTW, we called first for a reservation and were told there was nothing available until after 9 pm, but, when the Open Table app was checked, there were a number of times available. Thanks, Open Table!

Appeared at 7:30pm on a Monday night for a 7:30pm reservation, told that 6 reservations ahead of us, 16 parties waiting total, Sat down 40 mins past reservation time at 8:10pm. \n\n Then, 40 mins after placing our order, had to complain to the waiter and asst manager to have them expedite our food(party of 3 mind you ). \n\nI would think, in season, this place should run more efficiently. \n\nNot the Shooters everyone thinks about or remembers from yesteryear!

Shooters water front was a great experience for Valentine's Day. The Guava-chili wings may be the best wings I've ever had. The special I got, the surf and turf, was a bit expensive at $50, but it was good food. It turned out to be a really nice evening

Just a bad start from beginning. I had 8:45 reservations and was told my table was ready to hang out by bar and hostess totally forget about us. When we finally sat over 30 minutes later the waiter was either very tired or intoxicated. My wife's surf and turf scallops were cold. They took them back and new order was just as cold. Very bad service but I still tipped waiter 16 percent

I had reservations on a Sunday at 5:30. I had requested outside seating, if possible. We got there & were told 45 minute wait for outside & the hostess got distracted--it was very busy. When she got back to me I reiterated I had reservations. She apologized profusely & we were immediately taken to a table adjacent to the dock. Gorgeous view!! Wait staff was pretty quick & full of info on all things on the menu I liked that!\nWhen we got our food my steak $30+ was way overcooked. It was a little dry cause it was cooked too long. My wife's beef ribs were excellent. No issues.\nOnly thing really bothered me was a boat docked right by where we sat and off they went to barefoot bar. They left their music playing very loud on the boat. I was ready to simply climb aboard & turn it down but I didn't.\nOverall, view:A+, service/attentiveness:A,\nFood:C (steak was,overcooked & TOUGH....NOT the waiter's fault! View:A++ Relaxed ATMOSPHERE-NO pressure to leave the table even with other's waiting.\nI WOULD go back. Nice place.

I understand that it was the Sunday before Valentines Day, but we waited 2 hours and 10 minutes without ever being seated. It was my wife's birthday and by the time we finally left, after a $95 bar tab it was too late to have a good brunch elsewhere. It ruined my wife's Sunday birthday! Extremely disappointed that an establishment as nice as this would severely overbook. Doubtful I'll be back, even in the boat! It's become a tourist trap!

The hostess seemed harried and the entryway was quite congested. We arrived about 5 minutes late for our reservation, but it really didn't matter as our table was not ready. We opted to go to the bar, but no one bothered to mention that only one of the bars was serving. We waited for the text advising our table was ready, 20-30 minutes. Worth the wait. We were seated outdoors, as requested. We were greeted by our waitress nearly immediately after we were seated. The waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. The entrees were amazing, as was our sushi choice. Would return, maybe not on a Saturday night.

We live in the neighborhood and frequent Shooter's often. The service is excellent, the servers are very pleasant and efficient and really aim to please. The roast chicken and the mahi sandwich are delicious. They also have a delicious chicken soup and a tasty salad with goat cheese. We generally eat a full course dinner, as opposed to the bar menu, so I would not exactly say it's a value restaurant for us. That said, for being right on the waterfront, I believe the food is fairly priced, unlike some restaurants that tend to overcharge because they're on the water.

The only issue was that I called twice regarding the fact that we would be celebrating 75th birthday and we had one vegan in the party. I even came to the restaurant before the birthday boy and told the hostess it was a birthday. The message was never relayed to the waitress because I had to mention my vegan request for dinner and asked her to talk to the chef and I had to tell her that we were celebrating a birthday and ask for something special with a candle. \n\nDon't get me wrong we had a beautiful evening and our waitress was an exceptionally patience, kind and responsive server. I just wanted to see more attention to the minor details because it was a birthday. Honestly not her fault I just think the message was not relayed to her. Please tell Alexandria she was amazing and we send our sincerest thanks!\n\nI would like to ask that you have more vegan options made available. I would come here more often and bring my clients here much more often if I could eat more than the one option available. You have the ingredients on your menu… tell the chef to get creative!!! Vegans do not always want a salad so come up with some hot dishes beside the Israeli couscous and vegetables. ( It is very delicious and tasty just want more options please)\n\nThank you for a wonderful night! Happy New Year!

Waiter was awesome, busboys not so much. Seems that education on what to bring the client with each dish is missing. Got some stone crabs without proper silverware, so couldn't reach the meat, got a soup without a spoon, and no fork with main dish....still had a great night because the food was great and waiter made up for it with a nice desert and personality. Management should be tougher on that part and should educate their staff...

The happy hour was great! Great tasting/quality drinks for the 2-4-1 pricing. Lively atmosphere. And I loved the openness of the restaurant and available outdoor seating. Food was nothing to write home about; I got the $35 lobster and it was just decent - so that was a bummer. Our server was awful; I have to believe the rest of the servers were great. Our server was completely not attentive, didn't read us the specials, barely spoke. Young looking guy, thin, dark hair (don't remember the name and not sure if he actually gave it to us) - avoid him if you can.

Pros... Great food, drinks, and service (Waiter was super attentive). Vallet parking. Beautiful scenery and great for any occasion (I celebrated my birthday). I was really impressed with how fresh and tasty the food was. It was well seasoned and full of flavor. Compliments to the chef!! Definitely worth the trip! \n\nPlus... Open Table. Quick and easy to set reservations right from my google search!!\n\nCons... A bit pricey compared to places like Friday's which I regularly dine. Comparing the Cajun Pasta: Friday's $13.90; Shooter's $20. Cocktail Drinks start @ 10 and lengthy wine list. Didn't really check out the tap drinks. The biggest let down is that you spend so much for a meal and it doesn't include salad/soup/breadsticks. My hubbies burger did come with fries though and for $16 we thought it was well worth it. \n\nAll in all, I will definitely be dining @ SHOOTERS again. I'm was extremely satisfied with the experience and would be happy to spend a little more to do so. Just wish simple things like salad/soup/breadsticks was included for a better value. Seriously, that is the only issue SHOOTERS has in my opinion.

This is the second time I've been to Shooters for brunch in the last month. The first time was perfectly pleasant except for the hive of hostess beotches that so rudely treated me like crap. The second time, the hive of hostess beotches were rude yet again. On top of that, my friends who were visiting from out of town got sick with food poisoning the entire weekend, likely from the fried shrimp or remoulade it was served with. Craig, our server, was amazingly pleasant, so it pains me to leave such poor star ratings. But a weekend of vomitting and feverish chills warrants the worst of reviews.

No argument it's one of the best waterfront place for dining. The food is also quite good. The problem - when it's busy it falls flat on service. We waited 30 min past our reservation time before being seated. Once seated, we waited 20 min before ANYONE came to our table. We almost walked out. Once we did get someones attention, it got better. Overall it was a good time.

I am a big fan of Shooters and visit at least once a week. Having friends visit from New York for the first time, I knew that I could not go wrong with dinner at Shooters. To my surprise, we had the worst experience that I have ever experienced at Shooters. We waited for about an hour for our food to be brought to our table. Our steaks were cold and the mashed potatoes were cold as well. Steaks were not cooked to our order, all came out well even though we ordered rare. The manager that night came over and apologized and offered to give us soup or salad complimentary. That to me was good customer relations, while we waited for our dinners to be redone. Two of my guests were served and had to eat while we waited for our dinners. When our dinners were brought out they were the same, COLD. We decided to have them packed up and eat them later hot at home. Again the manager came over and apologized and brought out a tray of desserts for the table.\nHaving given this review, this will not keep me away from Shooters and I chalk this up to a bad night at a great restaurant.

We were looking forward to our first brunch at Shooter's for Father's day. We had a reservation and had requested an inside table, but we were told none were available. When we said we had asked for inside the 'lady' at the front desk got very irritated and aggressive. Obviously been a hectic day...\nThere were several tables inside available and they remained empty throughout the time we were there....\nWe were given menus and told a waiter would be with us soon. He was, but just to let us know he would be back soon. 15 minutes later he comes back and is pushing the buffet as the best option (although the regular menu was also offered). It took another 10 minutes before our drinks arrived.\n\nThe food was good. The service at the buffet excellent. One small omission is that there was no 'au jus' with the prime rib. However the prime rib quality was such, that you hardly needed a knife to cut into it.\nWe've been to Shooter's many times before and have never had a bad experience. Usually the service is very good. This was a disappointment.

We made a reservation via O/T and arrived exactly on time, and were told there would be a 10 minute wait for our table. After 15 minutes had lapsed, I asked the front hostess if there would be further delays and were told our table was being cleared. Despite seeing a few other parties arriving and being escorted to their tables, we sat for another 10 minutes waiting. And another 10 minutes. I inquired a third time and was told 'we sent you a text' which was odd for two reasons: 1) the number they had on file was the same number I've used 100 times already on O/T; and 2) we were waiting no more than 20 feet away in plain view of the front hostess station. You'd think someone might have simply walked over and told us our table was ready when they claimed it was. What bothered me most was the negative attitude I received after my third request. No apology. No effort was made to acknowledge what was probably nothing more than a simple snafu. Just negative attitude. If it wasn't so late, I would have gone elsewhere. Very poor front end service.\n\nI say all of this to end on a better note. Our dinners were tasty and good. Table service was also good. Despite a problematic attitude with those at the front that evening, I would consider coming back again when in the area.

We went there for brunch on a Sunday. The view of the intracoastal waterway is really nice. I ordered the crab cake benedict. The flavor was mediocre. The sliced tomatoes between the egg and the crab cake was cold, (like out of the fridge) which sucked the warmth out of the egg. I wouldn't go there again for the food.

The beginning of my experience was horrible. The ladies at the front were more interested in talking to each other rather than finding a seat which I had reservations for my date and I. I asked can we sit by the water she replied with an attitude there's no where to sit. Once we got outside I saw 4-6 tables by the water with no one there. 2 other couples were sat at 2 different tables and I over heard the host asking which table would they like to sit at. If there are not any more tables available how are you giving options. My waitress made the night better she was very professional and kind.

Good was good, service was horrible. We brought our boat to the restaurant for the first time, the Dockmaster was excellent. However, our waitress was horrible. We ordered a bottle of water and a bottle of wine. After the first pour, she never poured either again. She also put our food in under the wrong table, so everything we ordered went to the wrong table. On top of that, when she finally did check on us again, she said:'are you ordering any more food?' I replied, ' I guess not'... while we were still eating, another person brought our check to us and said your waitress asked me to give this to you. \n\nWHO DOES THIS!!!? I'm sure this is not a reflection of the restaurant, but this was our experience. Restaurant has nice ambiance and great waterfront seating.

I would hope that the staff would politely say something to the mother, but that apparently didn't happen. \n\nFood-wise: The food (apps, entrees, dessert) were great! \n\nThis place will become a regular on our restaurant list, that's for sure.

The worst brunch buffet in Lauderdale. And expensive and deplorable champagne quality. \n\nThe buffet only had one lunch item at 2 pm, when we arrived - two boring generic sushi rolls. No beef, turkey, or any sort of carving. No hot lunch entrees. Undercooked bacon and microwaved sausages. \n\nGot a terrible headache from the champagne within an hour, which at $20 pp is $5 - 8 more expensive than other buffets here. \n\nVery very disappointing. I won't recommend to anyone. But I love the regular menu at Shooters. Crazy!

We have been coming to this restaurant for over 15 years. The management has changed and the food has gotten better. BUT, today we saw a VERY disturbing thing-they are allowing dogs into the main restaurant. One was sitting on a bar stool & the owner let it on the bar-NO NO NO! This is NOT acceptable! These are $50 Internet 'emotional support' tags for dogs-NOT service dogs that REALLY do a service for their owners. These 'dogs' should have to go through the outside area and sit outside-not prance through the restaurant and sit on a bar stool with their paws & body on the bar area! I am appalled that the manager would let this happen-the bartenders watched the whole thing, too! Why do you have a dog - for a pet and emotional support-leave them home! DO NOT allow these animals inside the restaurant-keep them outside. The customers with allergies to animals should have a say about this, too! Wake up & take a stand-it is NOT legal!

Another member of the party had a burger that was perfectly cooked to her specification. Two others had the fish tacos, which they loved.

This was the first time we tried Shooters after reading the reviews and driving by it several times on our previous visits to Fort Lauderdale. Overall, the restaurant was fine; however I would not recommend it for a quiet evening. The menu had quite a selection to choose from and our waiter was very helpful in making suggestions. The options went from light to full course. I opted for the barratta salad and the other party opted for the waiter's suggestion to select the Skirt Steak. My salad was delicious but then I added some of the Shirt Steak on top which made it even better. The steak entree was delicious: steak and fried potatoes which were outstanding. Thanks to the waiter, our meal was a memorable one. It's definitely a place for birthday parties, business parties, etc. but not for a quiet dinner for two; although we would recommend it to others.

Shooters is a great place to take friends and out-of-town guests for a good meal with a great view. The food is always good quality if not exceptional. The service is friendly, relaxed and efficient, though it could use a little polish. On this visit our entrees came before we were finished with our salads and appetizers. My side Caesar had romaine lettuce that had little green color in it, which always annoys me, though the dressing is very good. The short rib entree was tender and flavorful. I will still come back as the intracoastal location is terrific and prices reasonable.

I remember Shooters in the 90's when I was younger and into late nights. I read about its remodel and decided to try it for a special lunch with my husband. It was midweek and summer so not terribly crowded. The food and the service were excellent. Portions were extremely generous so we both took home half our lunches. We sat inside against the back glass wall. We had the best of both worlds - a view of the inter coastal, but in the air-conditioning. The only negative was we could hear noise from the kitchen. Next time I will request to be further away from the kitchen entrance and am looking forward to cooler weather to sit outside.

We're back again on a Sunday night & arrived at what may have been the middle of shift change-7:15pm-7:30pm. Instead of getting bad or interrupted service, we received excellent care by even more of the staff who wanted to make sure we were not neglected and well taken care of. That was really great! It was a beautiful night and we sat outside again. The live musician was there so that's always a nice touch. Only thing I didn't like was an apparent drunk female fan who took it upon herself to get the singers tip jar and go table to table to ask for tips on his behalf. I think the singer was embarrassed and we were also embarrassed for him. It was evident the 'fan girl' was a bit tipsy. Most people shrugged it off and we didn't let that ruin our night at Shooters.

This time the food was hot but I noticed that there was no English muffin or bread underneath the eggs and crab cakes. I asked the waitress and she said they don't use English muffins with this entree since the crab cake serves as bread. I then asked if I could get some bread and she said they had no bread service.

A friend and I were vacationing in Fort Lauderdale. Shooters was recommended to us but a bartender at another establishment. As we approached, I was pretty sure I had been to this place before, maybe a few years earlier when I had stayed up in Pompano. It looked a bit different and I couldn't quite put my finger on it. \nWhen we first arrived we were a little early and our table wasn't ready because we really wanted to sit outside. The hostess kindly said she could accomodate us shortly and asked us if we wanted to have a cocktail at the bar while we waited. No problem, gave us a great opportunity to review the wine list. Bartenders were attentative and that was great. We were called for our table which was out on the edge of the dock, perfect view of the water (canals not ocean). Waiter was excellent, funny, efficient and accomodating. Food was served quickly which was great also. It really appeared that they had mastered running a very large restaurant. I really could nto find anything wrong. The food was great, but the usual surf and turf kind of things. I would ask that the Chef consider expanding his menu, maybe offering things that were more seasonal. Great place. Turns out, I had been there before, they had re-done the downstairs and opened up the walls. Looks fantastic. I would definately go back.

Wow! We chose Shooters for our 18th anniversary dinner. We reserved thru Open Table and noted the special moment. Upon arrival, the hostess said she saw the note and had the perfect table overlooking the water and sunset waiting for us. It was beautiful and indeed perfect. A few minutes later the manager came over with complimentary champagne in honor of our anniversary. Class act! She took photos of us to capture the moment. The waiter told us the filet mignon Oscar we saw online was no longer available. But the manager said let me see what I can do. We had the calamari, New England clam chowder and crab Louie salad for starters. All were absolutely wonderful and perfectly prepared. Then they surprised my wife with the filet mignon Oscar. The chef prepared it anyway even though it was not on the menu anymore! Incredible. It was the best ever. I had the brown butter shrimp and scallops with a corn risotto! It was delightful. Please treat yourself to it. You won't be disappointed. It was mouthwatering. It was the perfect meal and evening celebration with a gorgeous view right on the water. We asked to thank the chef in person. He came out and was quite a hilarious character. We thanked him for everything and he said anytime and that he would run to the store to get something to make his guests happy if necessary. All around the best restaurant experience we've ever had.

The renovation of Shooters is remarkable. They totally transformed the appearance from a budget-friendly sport's bar to an upscale, chic dining destination. The only problem is that many of the servers are more suitable for the former restaurant than the new... They are friendly but not as professional as they should be. When you go to a nice restaurant and order a bottle of wine, you don't expect it to be just poured into glasses without being offered an opportunity to taste it first. This is just one example but it is highly indicative of the service quality.

We vacation yearly in the Ft. Lauderdale area and try to make it to Shooters at least once per trip. While the new owners have redone the property beautifully, I cannot report that the food is always as great as the ambiance. The food tends to be hit or miss and according to an employee they have struggled with keeping good cooks and managers within the last year which shows reason for their inconsistency. Stick to their lighter fare and happy hour drinks and you should be ok. Our main courses this last visit were less than adequate so we chalked it up to a loss. Service was still good and of course the waterfront atmosphere is tough to beat. Good luck!

Shooter's has been a vacation favorite of ours for pre-cruise dining. We had raved to our guest on the Judith's Calamari that sadly is no longer on the menu. It appears since April 2014 the restaurant has modified the menu and does not offer the delicious, fresh, organic selections it has in the past. We will not be returning to Shooters in the future.

The atmosphere is fantastic, the Sushi and appetizers were great, the actual entrees were limited in selection in my opinion. The service was slow, set at our table for awhile before the waiter finally came, but he was very upbeat and helpful. He did disappear again for awhile, but because we were enjoying the atmosphere, it was not a big deal, but could be if we wanted a drink refill or our check. I will definitely return as it was still an overall nice dinner experience.

The scenery, live band, and food were pretty good. We eat out a LOT and consider ourselves foodies so although this was not the absolute best food we've ever had.. It wasn't too shabby. Our service started out a little sketchy because our server Ron seemed unorganized and all over the place. He felt the need to chat about the new features of the place with the guy at the table next to us for several minutes before even acknowledging us or even bringing us a glass of water. AND we had reservations and had been seated before that table. He made up for it with decent service after getting us started so I won't bash him too hard :-). We will definitely go back.

When we first got there we were acknowledge and the hostess sat us at the table that was not cleaned and had only one place setting. My husband went to the rest room and I sat there so that we could order right away no one came, then I went to the rest room and the people sitting across from us told the waiter that those people would like to order. When I came back from the rest room, waited a few minutes, someone came over. We ordered, had a drink and appetizer, waited for food. When it got there my husband's fish was not cooked and the batter was soggy, he had the Fish and Chips. He was not happy told them to take the food back they offered him another meal, but he was already unhappy with the Father's Day experience and was ready to leave. As far as my meal was concerned I had the Scallops and Shrimp with corn risotto the scallops were gritty and the risotto was overcooked.

Took forever to get our beer, mixed drinks came out immediately. Not sure how that happens. Also, if you split bill, do not use tip calculator at bottom of bill. If you do, you will tip much more than 20 percent. Management said it was IT error that they would fix. Great location on water, but incredibly disappointing experience.

Had a friend have not seen in 15 years coming to FLL first time. We chose Shooters for the food ambience and waterfront setting. Server was clueless and seemed not to want to be there. Told us there was not seafood that evening Wed May 11th and they were thinking of closing it was so slow 6 pm reservation. She seemed not to be in a mood of answering any questions about the menu and brought the wrong drink orders. Then after finishing our meals the computer system went down and we had mass confusion with getting our check. Very disappointing experience for our friend, for Ft Lauderdale and for Shooters. I have been coming here for years but won't be returning as there are so many other dining venues with great food and views.

Having been a frequent visitor to Shooters in the 'old days'' I was excited to visit the new and improved restaurant. The decode was OK, but not too much was done tithe physical space. He menu is limited and not exciting. There was very little ambiance or excitement. Granted, it was a rainy night, so the outdoor seating was limited, which may have affected that. While it was not too expensive, it is not casual dining, and drink prices are steep. The food was good, but seemed 'institutional'' like you were at a wedding. \nSorry,won't be back.

We showed up for Sunday brunch but ordered off the menu versus doing the buffet. The oysters and tuna tartare were both very good. The calamari was just OK.\n\ntwo of our group got the Lobster roll and both would not order it again - minced lobster meat and stale roll. Steak and eggs were devoured and very good. the arugula salad had so many stems, it was almost impossible to eat - wouldn't recommend. \n\nWe will still go back due to the service and atmosphere and limit our food choices to those we know we liked and of better quality.

Love shooters food and location on the intercoastal. Dined on a Friday evening at 6:30 and requested outside seating. Unfortunately the assigned table was too near the band. They were far too loud, screaming vocals and played selections not in line with the older crowd of snow birds that tend to be in this area during high season. We asked to be moved and were kindly accommodated to an inside table. Service was prompt and courteous. We were disappointed to be away from the waterfront scene and even more disappointed when we found that the poor genre and loud music was being piped inside! Still too loud for my wife and I to enjoy a peaceful meal. Suggestion, choose live music genre that is more aligned with the typical tastes of the over 50 crowd, perhaps more acoustic and keep the volume down. Let folks enjoy the beautiful waterfront venue without the thumping noise!

We enjoy going here for lunch sitting outside alongside the dock where yachts are coming and going. Outdoor seating has plenty of umbrellas so even if the sun is bright, they got you covered. The entire space was renovated and it's a pleasant and sublime environment. Inside is a terrific bar and vibrant scene day or night. There is free valet parking, however, when we drove up on a Friday for lunch, there were six cars in front of us and they didn't move after 10 minutes of waiting. I called the front reception and they seemed nonplussed. Because we were meeting people and already late, we self-parked in the garage directly across the street. \n\nDrinks are very good. We decided to have Fish & Chips because it's not offered at too many restaurants around Florida. Here it's a favorite, nicely done cod in a light batter. When they reopened after renovations, I was happy to still see it on the menu. The fries are thinly cut and tasty. I would've like a larger portion of the Cole slaw and next time I'll ask for it. Our guests enjoyed the Fish Tacos made with Mahi-mahi. The presentation is well done all around. The food is plated and served very attractively. \n\nService has always been efficient and courteous. Except for the short staffed valet service, the dining room was managed well. We will continue going back for dockside dining lunches.

Went to Shooters for Easter brunch. It was fabulous! This time we went for Fathers Day brunch and it was no where near what Easter Brunch was. There was no meat stations, no seafood station, no dessert station. Half the amount of food for the same price. And our waitress, I believe her name was Maria, took forever to bring us tap waters. More than half an hour to bring water, even though she asked us twice if we wanted water. Then she couldn't remember the type of beer we wanted either. All she had to do was drinks since this was a buffet. Horrible service. We will be attending another brunch here since it's obviously not consistent.

Unfortunately we had a terrible experience at Shooters The service was dreadful. The waiter took at least 15 minutes to come to the table, didn't even acknowledge that we had been waiting, & simply said 'So do you want anything to drink'? We ordered a bottle of wine. We waited at least 15 minutes, when the waiter finally reappeared to say 'sorry, we must be out of that bottle'. It was downhill from there. The food was 'ok'. 2 of us ordered the same dish, and they came out looking COMPLETELY different (they were each 'dressed' with different items, to the point that we thought they brought us the wrong dishes!). The doors facing the deck/inter-coastal were open (*which is probably not uncommon) however on a warm evening, they should keep the air on cooler. They had their big screen TV's playing 'JEOPARDY' The TV's were loud, and it was certainly not a 'Saturday Night Vibe' to have a Game Show glaring in the background! All in all, the 4 of us left the restaurant in complete alignment, that we wouldn't even return for lunch :(

I have gone twice now for their Sunday brunch and was disappointed both times. The first time I had to send my food back to be recooked. This time we had a 1:30 reservation and didn't get set until an hour later. Then our waiter brought us drink orders and never came back to take our order. Another 30 minutes passed and we flagged down another waiter to take our order. Once we got our food I had to send it back again. The cooks there cannot cook a poached egg to save their lives. Both times my eggs benedict came out with hard boiled eggs on them. By the time they brought me correctly cooked eggs the rest of my dish was cold. We had to flag down someone to fill our empty drinks and to get our check. We didn't leave there until almost 4:00 with the combination of wait time for our table and the poor service. The only reason I will return to Shooters is to have a couple of cocktails and sit outside. The view is the only thing saving them from poor service and bad food.

The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable and we enjoyed the atmosphere. Upon being seated near the water which was a great view we ordered an appetizer of calamari... Cooked to perfection except the oil must have been burnt as it had a burnt taste to it ... I ordered the fish n chips as a main course after reading excellent reviews and my better half ordered chicken n waffles ... They must have cooked the fish in the same oil as it was cooked to perfection but the fish had the same burnt oil taste - my better half said oh no - it also must have been cooked in the same oil and had the burnt taste as well. When asked we told our waiter what had occurred and were not expecting anything but we wanted them to know. They comped our dessert of baked Alaska which was excellent ...

Since Shooters has been renovated the place has a more upscale look. You may chose to sit outside and some tables are literally 5 feet from the intercostal waterway. While we were having drinks my daughter spotted a manatee in the water which made her trip to South Florida.

Shooters got over their rough patch and are back to the Shooters I knew and loved when I moved here 20 years ago. My salmon was cooked to perfection. I wish the wine list was a bit more innovative, though the 'Mary's Vineyard' sauvignon blanc I had was very good. The service was excellent, and you can't beat the view and atmosphere on the patio.

Happy hour lasted until 7. Half priced drinks and a nice bar menu meant we ate and drank well. The dining area is open to the water for a nice view. The interior areas are air conditioner even though the room is open. One suggestion. If you order Irish Coffee ask them to put whipped cream on top of it.

In town on business and did some research looking for some dining on the water. The decor and open dining to the water was great. Unfortunately we had a bad experience with the service and food. We ordered as normal and there was a very long delay to receive our meals (almost 40 minutes). The server said at one point food will be out in a few minutes. 15 minutes later he said that again and stated the manager was working in the kitchen to expedite orders. When the food came, the Filet Mignon a La Oscar and sides were cold and appeared to be sitting for a short while. Disappointing to wait so long and pay $44 for a cold meal. My Cashew Crusted Mahi was hot and tasted good but to me the red thai coconut curry sauce left something to be desired. To make good we were offered a complimentary dessert so we go a chocolate cake to go. Overall I would recommend as it was a great place but we happened to have a bad experience on this day. Hopefully it is not the norm. (It was a Sunday evening and not busy at all).

Due to that my husband just opted to take a appetizer and a drink which was semi disappointing since we'd already studied the menu at home and decided what we wanted.

We have really enjoyed Shooters at lunch since they re-opened. Recently we tried it for dinner...disastrous. We were promptly seated for our 8:00 reservation. Unfortunately, our table was right next to a very large speaker that was BLARING. You literally could not talk to each other. We were moved easily. \n\nAt 8:10, someone (not our waiter) came to help take a drink order, which was appreciated, but our drinks (just wine) and water didn't arrive until 8:25. Finally at 8:40, our waiter appeared - he was awkward and rushed. And what did he say? 'You guys going to order food?' There was no 'Hello.' No 'My name is Jon' (his real name by the way). No apology for the wait. No mention of specials. \n\nOrders were placed and actually arrived fairly quickly. The food was good. However, our waiter never came back. Fortunately the first gentleman came back around and cleared plates when we were finished. \n\nWe had hoped with the beautiful remodel and re-opening, this could become a 'go-to' dinner place. But with the loud music, it really is more of a bar scene --- not a nice restaurant. The servers aren't nearly as experienced and don't really care about their guests. After this nighttime experience, we will stick with just lunch at Shooters!

Second visit to Shooters and it was just as good as the first. Reasonably priced given the location and as compared to neighboring restaurants. Had the mussels and lollipop lamb chops as appetizers. The mussels were fresh and tasty - served in a Cioppino broth with toasted ciabatta bread. The lamb chops also good - tasty and very tender - no gaminess. Tried the southern fried chicken with waffles. The pan fried chicken hit the spot - fresh and not greasy. The salmon was not overcooked but next time will ask to go easy on the mustard sauce. The mashed potatoes served with the salmon was very good - typically a side dish that isn't given much thought. The view of the intracoastal with live entertainment made for a very enjoyable dining experience. And complimentary valet parking - even better!

When we arrived at 1:00pm on Sunday, Sept. 20th, the young lady at the computer checked us in with a smile and welcomed us, we had reservations for 1:00pm. She was very pleasant and said 'as soon as they clean off a table outside (requested outside) the hostess will seat us. There was (3) of us, my wife and I and my sister the a professional PHD in the medical field who came down from N.J. to visit. We were seated within 5 minutes. It was a very sunny day that day, it was too hot so we asked if we could be moved to another table outside but one in more shade. The hostess appeared to be preoccupied and seemed a bit annoyed that we requested to be moved. Never smiled once, my wife and I are both just recovering from cancer and we walk a little slow. This hostess turned and gave us a look that made us feel very uncomfortable. I guess we were not keeping up with her pace. When we finally got seated, the waiter came right over, he was very pleasant and smiled. We ordered an appetizer and one cocktail each and all was fine. We then ordered lunch, my wife ordered a hamburger and specifically told the waiter she is allergic to onions and to please make sure there are none. My sister ordered a hamburger too with everything and I ordered the lobster eggs benedict. When the food arrived, my wife opened the bun to put barbeque sauce on her burger only to discover a big slice of onion on it. We notified the waiter and the manager came over and apologized and said he would have a fresh burger made. Well, by the time the fresh burger w/o onion came out my sister and I had already finished our lunch leaving my wife eating by herself. I guess the manager observed this, and he was kind enough to comp. her meal and apologized. Then the bill came out, I noticed that I was charged for (4) cocktails instead of only three. I brought this to the waiters attention and he seemed embarrassed and made the correction. It was not the best experience and may not return.

Long story short, don't pay your check early. You will no longer get the time of day from any of the staff. In fact, after a while one of my friends was convinced that our waitress was legitimately avoiding is. We paid for bottomless mimosas and were a bit disappointed when we only received 8 oz of orange juice the entire time. And when we gave up on getting orange juice it was like pulling teeth to get a second bottle of champagne. We did enjoy the food and the overall atmosphere. But once that check/tip has been paid, the service goes from pretty good to nonexistent real quick. And let me clarify that we only asked about paying out early to move closer to the music for Rock the Dock at Shooters and that would've put us in a different serving section. Then we decided to stay seated where we were, but since our waitress went through the trouble of getting the check anyway, we went ahead and paid the bill plus an over 20% tip. Then we became almost invisible.

3 friends and I went at another friends recommendation (Under new ownership). I was embarrassed that I pushed for this venue and made the reservation. Three of us sent our meals back(we Never do this). One meal arrived cold and 2(the same dish )arrived burnt, tough and inedible. the Manager did respond instantly, recognized the situation, apologized and sent out an additional app to tide us over while the tree meals were redone. Of course this left the person whose meal was fine on arrival to eat it 'alone'. The second meal re-arrived about 10minutes latter and the other 2 meals 5-8minutes after that. the two chicken meals were bland and uninteresting. The peanut butter/chocolate dessert was very good.\n\nWe all liked the interior décor and music playlist(we sat inside as it was a rainy evening). \n\nI would fine it hard to recommend this restaurant based on our experience. While out-of-towners in particular might like the venue because it is on the water, those of us who live here are likely most interested in the food.

On the plus side, Shooter's has great atmosphere, a terrific waterfront location, is beautifully appointed and enjoys moderate to high energy. This restaurant has all of the ingredients and the potential to be a fabulous & memorable, waterfront dining experience. \n\nWe joined them for Sunday brunch & were wise to make reservations. The place was packed when we arrived 20 minutes early for our reservation, so we were directed to the bar for a drink while waiting for our table. The wait was minimal, the table was waterside and It doesn't get much better then that.\n\nOn the minus side, the food was forgetable & below expectations, based on everything elses this restaurant has going for it. And the service was embarassing on the day of our visit. While it was evident the wait staff was running hard trying to keep up, it was obvious there weren't enough hands on deck to keep pace with the volume of guests at the time of our visit.\n\nWe plan on visiting again during our next trip to Ft. Lauderdale and hope to catch them for drinks on a day when they're better staffed for the volume of guests they're entertaining.

My fiancé and I moved to Fort Lauderdale a month ago. We live in a building right in front of Shooters. We have been many times during our first month and absolutely love it. It is gorgeous, has great outdoor space and a wonderful happy hour. We took my fiancé's parents on Sunday evening and they really enjoyed it. We shared many appetizers including fish dip, fish tacos, watermelon and feta salad and a flat bread. My fiancé and I split the Red Grouper special and it was delicious. The seafood is fresh, the flatbreads are crispy, fish tacos are light and tasty, and we enjoyed our wine as well. I recommend this place for anyone who wants to watch the boats go by while eating fresh and yummy food!

I've been to the renovated Shooter's 3 times now and each time the service is less than stellar. We ordered drinks and appetizers and it took 3 hours, and not because we were excessively slow! \nI love the location. I always sit outside on he water but at this point in time, the kinks should be ironed out and the device should be better. \nManagement was great and gave us a complimentary dessert, but would rather have had more timely service.

Parking was easy once I saw the parking garage across the street from the restaurant. The hostess was very plesant and accommodating while I waiting for my dining partner. When I sat at the bar I was immediately addressed and offered a menu with drink specials when asked what he recommended. The drinks were very tasty, with the favorite of the night being a watermelon cooler. After being seated outside with a nice view of the inlet, our server arrived promptly and provided excellent service. When the food arrived it was nicely presented, and we enjoyed each delicious bite.

My girlfriend and I found Shooters on the internet and decided to take a chance for Sunday brunch. What a find! We arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation (and make sure to make one otherwise you'll be waiting 30 - 45 minutes) and were seated right away. Our waitress, Jessy, was personable and attentive. Throughout our meal, we didn't have to wave for her as she was right on top of everything. We had an outdoor table on the Intracoastal and watched the yachts and other boats as they passed by. A wonderful way to pass a Sunday.

I have lived in South Florida for many years and would hang out and dine at Shooters many years ago. I was thrilled to see that it had been renovated and wanted to give it a try. The renovations inside were ok...but the outside area was beautiful...as always. We were seated quickly after we arrived. Our waiter was attentive and friendly.We ordered a couple of appetizers, which were average...nothing special at all. We then ordered and received our meal. Honestly, I don't even remember what any of us ate. NOT memorable. It wasn't BAD, just not good either. I recommend this for an afternoon or something much more casual than a Saturday evening dinner. Great location with a fantastic view,...just don't go there looking for an equally fantastic meal. You will be disappointed.

First time eating at the restaurant. I chose this location because it was along the intercoastal waterway. My wife and I sat outside, nice view, fairly quiet and plenty of seating. Our waitress/server was great, very pleasant and always checked on us. The food however is way over priced. My wife had the stuffed shrimp with crab meat and I had the multi-meat hamburger with fries. My wife both ordered a cocktail from their menu. The total bill was 70.00. Not what we expected when we saw the size of my wife's food. 6 large shrimps with a spoon full of crab meat. Yes it was good, but there was no side orders - just shrimp on a plate. For 70.00, we should have gone somewhere else alot better. What we got was a big let down and an expensive bill... but we still enjoyed ourselves.

Shooters decor is a world apart from the original decor. It feels posh, except for the multiple tv screens. I feel they could do with a few less in the dining area. The food was good, the service was at times great, but at times very spotty. It was sort of a ying and yang type of thing, at times very upscale and overthe top, at times, very lacking. I do wish the menu was a little larger with more choices, but there is usually something on there for everyone. All in all, I wouldn't go here for a romantic date, but for casual friends. A HUGE plus is the complimentary valet parking!!!

Shooters has done a fantastic job at remolding this local hot spot. However, their service does not match the ambiance. We had reservations for Easter brunch and they had a fantastic raw bar. However, they did not have any 'crackers' to break open the crab legs. Many patrons were upset and could barely eat their meal without looking like a barbarian. I left wondering if this was intentional so that they would save money on the raw bar. I also had a hung-over and moody waiter. We were also greeted by a young-lady who made it clear we could only stay for 2 hours until they would have to kick us out. I would go again, however I would bring my own crab leg cracker!

We went to Shooters while on vacation in the area. The food was very good, the restaurant is attractive, and the location is wonderful. Unfortunately all of that was overshadowed by really poor service. We arrived 15 minutes late due to traffic problems, and the hostess said she had already given our table away. She was very rude to my wife, and although she did give us another table, it started the evening off poorly. The waiter was really nice and tried hard, but he fell short. For example, we had to ask several times for silverware and napkins after food was delivered.\n\nThe food was very good. Our entrees included grilled shrimp and scallops, prime rib, and pasta. All were very good. The bread pudding flan was an outstanding dessert.\n\nIf you're looking for outdoor dining on the water, the location is really nice. It was great watching the boats go by, and feeling the breeze off the water. All in all we had a nice time, but there are too many other restaurants to bother going back there again given the service issues.

Our last two experiences at Shooter's have been quite good. The food was very good and the service good as well. We love the ambiance of this restaurant--it is right on the Inter-coastal Waterway facing west and the sunsets are truly stunning. We were a party of four and arrived a bit early. No problem being seated and they did not rush us to order while we were having drinks and an appetizer. \nThe flatbread with ricotta and sausage was a tasty starter and we followed with an order of ribs (absolutely delicious and very generous) and two fish tacos which were good, but on the small side, and a lobster salad which was also on the small side. Food was all good with the exception of the ribs which were outstanding. I must make mention of the fact that my friend ordered the BBQ sauce on the side for the ribs and someone came to ask if she was allergic to the sauce or just didn't want alot. I thought that was a very smart move. I will return to this restaurant.

I would not return to Shooters because the food was worse than ordinary. The clam chowder, which was said to be very good, was worse than I could have bought in a can at Publix, and the caesar salad was nothing special. The bread, which has been pre-buttered, was cold and ordinary. My friend's fish dish was a C minus. So... Shooters is off our list of places to go --- though the server was very pleasant and good, and the atmosphere (bar, placement on the Intracoastal) would make it a good stop for time in the evening.

Beautiful restaurant and great food. Huge restaurant with a cozy feel. Servers and management need to be more 'upscale' in making sure they spend time with tables and that drinks aren't empty. Have a rule that someone is at the table to take a drink order with in 2-3 minutes after someone is seated. We were there almost 10 minutes before the waiter came and asked is someone had taken our drink order yet. We got there around 930 so at least half the place was empty. I wondered what it would be like if I was there during peak time. The manager kind of did some crazy drive by our table asking if we were ok on his way to somewhere else. I don't think his legs ever did actually 'stop' at our table. He looked like he was on his way to a 70's disco club. Please up your game. This could be an awesome atmosphere. You have to make it your own, but maybe dine at Kaluz or Houstons to see the atmosphere there, how the management interacts with tables, how tidy Nd organiized the restaurant always looks, even during peak hours, and how the servers seem like professionals rather that reformed fast food employees.

Location, location, location! We chose this restaurant because of the “view” on the Shooter’s webpage. We had out-of-town guests and wanted waterfront dinning. It was a chilly night and the hostess sat us inside. We asked for an outside table and were told that it was too cold (68 degrees). She moved us to a “partially covered” area. Our view was of a parking lot in the back of the restaurant and it was very noisy! As we left, we walked through the restaurant to see the waterfront where we saw many outside tables with gas-heaters. The view from there was great which made us angry since we spe\ncifically asked for a view. \nThe food was just okay (I had the fish and chips which about $0 and consisted of several small fish fillets wrapped and fried in a too thick, rubbery, flour breading. The coleslaw was great, but the fries were cold and hard. I ordered a side of onion rings for the table that were plentiful, but mostly left untouched because they were also cold. Our guests were polite and didn’t complain, but I noted that they didn’t finish their entrees either. The prices were fair for the location during “snowbird” season, but if you can’t get a waterfront table, don’t waste your money.

This is the end of the good review.\n\nLong story short. Bad service, inept waiter. Tasteless food. Lunch came an hour and a half after ordering. Claimed the kitchen lost the ticket. My son, who has served at high end restaurants said that was code for 'I screwed up and forgot to put in the order after the appetizers.' \n\nWe didn't all get to eat together because after the appetizers, one of our party went to get his buffet meal, anticipating the rest of the meals would soon arrive. They didn't for at least another 45 minutes. Of course our tab went up as we drank during this whole entire wait. \n\nThe total tab was $140 for lunch. (4 people) The waiter offered to comp a ginger ale (which he had to bring two times because he brought tonic water instead of ginger ale) and a piece of cheesecake. No birthday candle, though informed it was Mom's birthday. No, I didn't call a manager over. This was my mother's birthday and I didn't want to make an already disastrous meal worse.\n\nToo bad.

We waited because one of the managers said he could not seat us because they wanted to give us a proper dining experience by not having us sit around when the kitchen was backed up. Needless to say we didn't have a proper dining experience and It was not worth the wait. The waitress Mary-Kate was attentive but the food was not good. The short ribs tasted as if they were under the lamps for hours. The potatoes tasted like boxed potatoes. The Brussels spouts were undercooked and had too much garlic. We also ordered the scallops and they too were under cooked. We asked to see the manager to discuss our meal and experience and he did not come to see us. The manager seemed to be roaming around aimlessly. We asked for bread. The bread was delivered after approximately 20 min. We all agreed the bread was the only item we felt was worth the wait. Decor is good but it does not match the food being served.

The manager kept moving tables around behind us and even carried one table over guests heads while they were eating. I expected better from this type of restaurant.

Came with a group of friends and we had a phenomenal time. The lobster roll and flat breads are delicious. Our entire party was so impressed with the new Shooters. Gorgeous place. One of the best places in Fort Lauderdale hands down.

The rennovations to this property are simply stunning. It already had a huge outside eating area, and now it's at least doubled with beautiful lighting, and contemporary furnishings that turned this former chic party place into a more formal and 'grown up' restaurant. It looks and feels luxe. \nThe menu is now much pricier, with even simple roast chicken priced at $23 and a hamburger burger at $16. \nYou are paying for the renovations becuause the food, while good, should be better. \nOur waiter started out making a great impression and we wanted to like him, but he dissapeard for long periods of time, perhaps from too many tables to wait on, or perhaps with problems in the kitchen wating for food, but in any case, we had to ask for and wait for simple things like an iced tea refill. On top of that, my food order was wrong, but he graciously offered to replace it and it was replaced in a reasonable amount of time, but not quickly. \nAll in all we wanted to love this place, but it was uneven enough to make us wonder if we even liked it.

It had been a few months since we had been to Shooters and were surprised to see a more limited menu with significantly higher prices. Heavy metal rock music was hardly conducive to dining even at 4:00. Portions of our meal arrived cold and had to be sent back. The ultimate affront came when we had paid the check and tipped 15% for FAIR service, and the waiter came rushing over to ask if we had made a mistake after the menu suggested a minimum of 18% tip.\nWhat was a classy, reasonably priced restaurant has now become neither.

Our experience was great and we have no complaints. Everyone was nice and made sure our night was a success. I would recommend this place to all of my friends. It's a great place to go and get away to have a great time.

Service was amazing and thoughtful. We indicated that we were celebrating our anniversary on our Open Table reservation and when we got there the staff made sure that our celebration was noteworthy, even provided a surprise dessert with a candle in honor of our anniversary. Great place, great service and good food.

It's been quite some time since I visited Shooters. Love the renovations. It's very 'South Beach' now. Great spot for tapas, cocktails, lunch or dinner.

Great and friendly staff!! They made us feel welcomed and didn't rush us at all. The Thanksgiving menu was excellent and dessert was superb. Portion size was plentiful and the price including gratuities was value for our money and we would do it again!

This has been completely remodeled, it smells and looks so much better. They spent a lot of money to make this place beautiful! Great views of the Intracoastal, too!
