“WARNING: Tourist Trap!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2007

We visited Riverwalk around 8PM on a Saturday in May 2007. Most shops were closed/closing and there were a lot of thuggish people roaming about. A few restaurants were open on the dock's edge, but they were very noisy and going into disco mode for the evening. Not suitable for a quiet dinner. The worst part was paying the garage $7 for 5 minutes of parking. It's not pro-rated, so you're trapped as soon as you drive into the facility.

“Nice addition to the Las Olas area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2006

We really enjoyed the shopping and ambiance of the Las Olas area. The Riverwalk area was a pleasant addition to this. We enjoyed an early evening stroll on the waterway and then we caught the water taxi. Finished off the night with dinner and a movie... and all in one location. There are several restaurants and some outside entertainment on the weekends. Weather was great! All in all, it was a wonderful experience.

“Riverwalk in Ft. Lauderdale is OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2004

Just returned from Ft. Lauderdale. The riverwalk area was ok. There is a nice path to walk on along the river. The shopping is not much. A few kiosks open when we were there and also a few stores. The good deal was that a nice restaurant was having a lunch special. Anything on the menu only $3.99. I had a delicous salad with a beautiful piece of salmon on the top for $3.99. A good place to spend an hour or so.
