OUTSTANDING!!!! Simply great from start to finish.

This was our BEST meal in Ft. Lauderdale. I will tell you that we eat out a lot and without a doubt Ritch who was our waiter - was the best waiter we have ever had, hands down. THANK YOU Ritch. Now, the food, I will say it, I'm not a seafood guy, but my wife certainly is and we... read more

A restaurant with a beautiful location right by the water, perfect for watching the sunset. Great food, they have a standard menu with lots of goodies (great artichoke spinach dip) and they have daily specials. A good place to get seafood.

We ate twice at this restaurant during our 11 days trip to Fort Lauderdale. Expect to stand in line and wait if you don't have reservations. You can go next door to have drinks while you wait and bring it over to Coconuts afterwards. We ate outside both nights since the noise seemed not as loud. Pretty busy and packed... More

Totally worth the wait for a table. If you like an early dinner, then the wait is not an issue. Amazing food and service.

Stopped for a late lunch, and found they offer (some) half price appetizers from 4:00 - 6:00 pm. Our waitress had no problem holding our order for 15 minutes to get this special while we enjoyed our drinks. Our appetizers were good, and our lunch entrees were even better. The crab cakes salad was outstanding. We also had a very... More

Aside from the raucous and super laid back atmosphere of this restaurant/bar/oyster bar, it's got a water front view (channel side) and fun FL vibe. Even at 9 pm on a Wednesday night in mid March, we waited 10 minutes for a table. The snow crab scoobies swimming in garlic butter were outstanding as an app. My colleague had jambalaya,... More

Met friends for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Beautiful location, professional attentive and learned service. Wait staff are well-versed and so helpful. Crab cakes... best I have had anywhere !! Luscious with hardly a hint of filler... Great presentation and the ceiling misters really helped with the 85 degree weather. Overall, a perfect luncheon with friends !!

This restaurant was suggested by an employee of our hotel. Afer a 6 block waly we were seated at a table with a view of the inter-costal waterway. However, we had to look over other tables that were closer to the exterior. Service was prompt and attentive and each of us ordered something different. The food arrived quickly and we... More

This restaurant is highly rated on TA for a reason...the service is excellent, with the waiter really taking time to explain the offerings and answer questions. My son had the stone crabs and loved them. Expensive, but worth it. I had the coconut shrimp and found it very good as well. The floating dock with the huge tarpon is a... More

This is a great restaurant. It has a lot to offer. But go early if you don't want to wait hours. It is usually packed out this time of year and the wait is around 1 1/2 hours or more.
