Great meal

Dined here with a number of friends, and everyone had a great meal. No complaints about service, and the view from our tables of the waterway was very nice. I'd come back.

A wonderful meal, great service from Donna, and a nice "at home" atmosphere. I can't say enough about the fish and chips, though. It was barely battered, perfectly cooked and the fries were crispy. A perfect entree!

We got there just before the main lunch rush. When I go to a seafood place I always order the fish and chips as a menu sampler. If they are good usually the rest is too. We got drinks right away, and the service was fine, but got quite slower as the crowd came in, but that's to be expected.... More

After a number of visits to Fort Lauderdale, this has become a favorite place for us to drop into for a quick drink and bite to eat. As we always stay at the more northern part of Fort Lauderdale Beach, a fun ritual is to walk along the beachfront, feet in the water and take in the sunshine. Problem we... More

A regular stop when we are cruising the ICW. We had to sit underneath the covered area to get out of the sun because they had no umbrellas on their bay side tables. The food was good, service was OK.

Thanks for sharing your comments! We removed the umbrellas from the waterside tables to expose the entire restaurant to the amazing water views and we're glad you were still able to sit in the shade. We are happy to hear you enjoy stopping while cruising the Inter-coastal. We hope to see you again! More

This place is in a great location but the service is awful ... you seat yourself and wait for someone to hopefully stop by... we waited an hour to get our food - when we asked for the manager he offered a discount to "shut us up" We told him we weren't looking for a discount but was upset that...

Went there for lunch because we wanted to sit outside and look at the intercoastal and the boats. Place was 1/3 full at best. Found a table (actually a picnic bench ) by the rail with a great view. After sitting there for 10 minutes or more. A waitress finally came by and said this area is close (there were... More

We visited the Bahia Cabana Dockside Bar and Waterfront Restaurant in January 2015; the night before embarking on our cruise from Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale to Bahamas). What a great choice for dinner that evening! Perfect outdoor temperature, slight breeze being waterfront, good food and GREAT outdoor ambiance! It's a short walk from the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort... More

We dined at the Bahia Cabana this February and our experience perfectly aligned with what we were looking for. We just flew in from the Northeast and the Bahia Cabana was just a short stroll away from our motel. We sat on their very pleasant waterside deck overlooking the bobbing boats, yachts and other watercraft of the Marina. They had... More

Just sorta found the place on the net. We were on 95 coming from the airport,, it was a parking lot so we looked for a local place. Great service and really good food and great value. Caesar salad was good, but the fish taco's were loaded with perfectly cooked Basa and hand a side of a spicy mayo. She... More
