Kids will love it!

You can buy a bag of frozen shrimp and feed the tarpon. The fishes are really big and kids get so excited. The food is average but the experience worth a visit.

we were excited to try this restaurant after reading the reviews, but our experience was anything but favorable. the location: a plus - right on the water and with most tables upstairs having a nice view, particularly if you can get a seat on the upstairs porch. stop to feed this fish! the service: mediocre at best. our server was...

15th Street Fisheries, has been voted the best waterfront restaurant ,and it's one of my favorites. They have the look, lots of wood, great waterfront location at historic Lauderdale marina. They have a great dock and patio to dine. Very good staff, clean facilities. I like the large bar inside, and the A/C.

Wow! A highlight for my kids. Go buy a bag of frozen shrimp at the dock's bait shop and feed the tarpon, who actually will jump to get the shrimp. We ate dinner at the dockside restaurant and then fed them a second bag of shrimp. The water taxi has a stop right here too.

While I was planning our trip to Florida, I found from tripadvisor and pinned this restaurant. I think it was a right choice, the sight of the place is amazing, we really liked. The fishes look like small dolphins are swimming under the dock you are sitting and you can feed them by throwing bread pieces. We spent fine time... More

While on a business trip I stopped in for a casual meal. This place is set right on the water with some great views. The food was fresh and service was prompt. If your looking for a casual night with good seafood this place is worth checking out

Staff is very nice, setting is very nice, feeding the tarpons is very nice. Food and food presentation however, is pretty dreadful .. (unless you are expecting glorified cafeteria food. ) Just as unfortunately, the price you pay for the food does not reflect this cafeteria aspect so as a result it becomes doubly disappointing and then consequently annoying. Such... More

We had taken the Water Taxi and decided to have dinner. There is an upstairs and a downstairs to dine, we chose the downstairs. Our food and service was great. We had calamari and gobbled it up fast. The shrimp po'boy was mouthwatering and full of shrimp. They had a special "skillet" which had many flavors of fish that was... More

We went to the 15th street fisheries after we got a tip from a local. We did not know what to expect so we just went on an afternoon to feed the fish. This was lots of fun to do. Unfortunately we did not have the chance to have lunch or dinner at the restaurant but we heard pretty good... More

After booking online and requesting outside seating I was sat inside! The service was good and the view was pretty but the food was not good. I ordered the shrimp which was just OK. My boyfriend ordered the snapper which had a bland Peruvian sauce. My hundred dollar meal was not at all worth it.
