“Gotta be Kidding”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2007

Not sure what the past reviewer was talking about. For people that think Applebee's or Chili's is a great dining experience---GO. If chicken fingers and fries are what you think kids should eat then make your way to a real restaurant. Good place if looking across the intercoastal at some buildings with 70's paint and flourescent lighting is your thing.

And a quick note for Florida restaurant owners--Follow the California and NY lead--Have the smokers go to the parking lot-why should non-smokers we be subjected to this crap.

“Best Happy Hour and Appetizers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2007

Shooters is the first or last stop on the Water Taxi Schedule in Ft. Lauderdale depending upon in which direction you are travelling.
They have an awesome happy hour from 4 to 7 where you get 2 for the price of 1 - and they have half priced appetizers at the bar - the Shrimp Cocktail is super jumbo, the coconut shrimp delicious, great crab cakes and chicken tenders. As you can see, we sampled them all on our various trips -- they make a mean Appletini and their frosted beer glasses are great and replaced with each new beer (some bars don't do that) - terrific bartenders and a great view of the intercoastal waterway but get there before the 4pm start or you won't get a stool! Highly recommended.

“Excellent last stop on the FLL Water Taxi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2005

We had a party at Shooters in May, 2005. Arranged all the details from internet and phone from our home in NJ. Was not sure what to expect, and were a bit worried, since our original plans for using "The Riverhouse" on RiverWalk fell through!.

We planned for about 50 people, and asked about a buffett. We were sent menus and bar prices. (Like 4 hours of open bar:))

Anyway, we have had lunch and dinner here before, and like the food, and the staff very much (and using the water taxi avoided the traffic & car problems. (Unlimited water taxi is $20 a week and is great...takes a while, though)

Food menu for just over $22.00 per person included unlimited:

appitizers- coconut shrimp, Pan seared Tuna, Mushroom Cap Florentine,

Dinner- Mixed green salad-slow roasted Prime Rib-Mediterrian Mahi Mahi-Chicken & Portabella Pasta- Fresh steamed veggies-Galic Mashed Potoato tea, coffee. We needed to bring our own cake, and went to Ft Lauderdale new top bakery called Storks (Wilton Manors) and had a Pistachio Cheese Cake frosted with whits chocolate icing.

Candice was our co-ordinator....and suggested we buy the less expensive bar package...(we didn't, but afterwards maybe felt we should have. We took the 4 hours open bar premium...but for us middle agers, I don't think you need that much. Excellent...We would do this again (but with a lesser bar package.
