Nice restaurant with water views and patio. Enjoyed the selection of wine by the glass. Seafood I had was excellent. Tasted very fresh and was cooked to perfection. The sauces were good and well executed. Friendly, but not over-bearing service. Would return!

The restaurant was recommended by the front desk at the Hotel Inn Express, we took a chance and went. Great food, exceptional atmosphere and we would recommend this stop to anyone.

Bimini Boatyard is in the back corner of a strip shopping area near the Renaissance Hotel. My experience was highly mixed. I really liked the interior decor with lots of white trim and a posh maritime theme, which is keeping for an area where yachts dock. The service was pleasant - no more no less. The food was highly variable.... More

Great atmosphere. Great location on 17th Street Causeway. Had reservations for 8 PM, but didn't get seated until 8:30 PM. Took us 1 hour after ordering to get our main dishes. "Kitchen was backed-up." Had to flag down waitress to find out what was going on. Even then, had to flag her down again to get us drinks while waiting... More

This was unexpected. Just happened to be in that area for dinner and when we saw the place we simply stopped and went in for dinner. We did go to the bar for a drink and confirmed that it was happy hour time, and we did get 2 for 1. Just great to start. We then took place in the... More

After visiting south Florida for many years, I decided to take up my neighbor's suggestion to try out Bimini. He always used to rave about it whenever we were going to visit in the area and we were happy to finally go and check it out. The hostesses were all very pleasant and we were directed to outdoor seating with... More

It is a very rare occasion when I eat a meal and tell myself that I will NEVER return to the restaurant. In this case, there were three of us that went to this restaurant (and that is a stretch) for lunch. I had the Belize seafood pasta which consisted of two little shrimp, one scallop and one tiny undercooked... More

The outdoors tables are on the Ft Lauderdale boatyard. It is cool, refreshing, and interesting. The service was competent and friendly, although the waiter's assistants could not remember to bring missing items, even after repeated requests. The grilled fish were delicious and portions large enough for some doggie-bags. Oysters were tasty and well shucked. We did not have room for... More
