We met another couple for an early dinner, sat out on the deck and enjoyed the beautiful night, the great view of boats coming and going, and the delicious food and drinks. The fish & shrimp were so fresh it seemed they may have just come out of the ocean. My side salad was also a little different, and delicious.... More

Nice outdoor deck overlooking the water. Excellent stone crab and raw oysters during happy hour with tropical cocktails to match.

Ate their 2 nights of a 4 day visit, highly recommend the food & atmosphere. Walking distance from mega-high priced hotel dinners. Would go back.

It's brite with a nice decor. They are busy, with a young group, both inside and outside. Parking is easy. The bartenders, waitress's are very good. They have a large menu, I ordered a grouper sandwich with fries and ice tea. I enjoyed the atmosphere, and the food. Cost $$

Stopped in for dinner, and while waiting for a table out on the water, we enjoyed drinks and an appetizer at their nice bar which had several football games on the TVs. It was still Happy Hour so we ordered the appetizer we usually request -- Calamari. Wow, it was the best we've ever eaten -- very tender, light coating,... More

The Bimini Boatyard is that place you are looking for when you're this close to the ocean. The decor and atmosphere hit the mark and that would usually be enough to keep people coming back, even if the food was so-so. But the food is as equally good, if not great. To boot, the bloody mary I had was well... More

Water, water everywhere; yes, this is a great place to have a table dock-side. It might be deceiving since the location is in a corner of a strip mall, but they have their own drive-up awning and free valet parking so it's an effortless place to drive up to and go in. This can be a huge plus in Florida... More

Liked the happy hour prices at the bar, dining on the water and reasonably priced menu. It represents a good value in a very nice waterfront location.
