My wife and I went here after hearing good things from other locals. We had passed it on several trips and felt that it was time to give it a try for lunch. Good move. Had conch fritters to start followed by conch chowder (small bowl) accompanied by Bimini bread. Nice and spicy. Split a key lime pie. Great taste and portions. Even better with beer (although you can get up to a $400 bottle of bubbly). Feels "comfortable in its clothes" inside; not like some restaurants that try to manufacture what they think visitors expect as an old Florida feel. Very friendly and efficient staff. Upstairs is open air overlooking Federal Highway. Can't speak to the BBQ, but will give that a try next time. Extra parking across the side street next to the Zodiac store. Definitely a place you want to go back to.

Four of us had a great lunch today, We dined on great sandwiches with pulled pork/beef, conch chowder, and coleslaw. Bimini bread was sweet and fresh. Friendly staff and a colorful building.
Very quiet for a Saturday. We will return! $60 included two beer, two sodas and a tip.

Three in our party had bbq both pork and beef and were very pleased with the taste and the size of the portion. Two of us only had regular food, buffalo chicken sandwich and all beef hot dog and were also satisfied with the quality. The service was pleasant and very attentive...

We were in Fort Lauderdale and had about 90 minutes to kill before taking off. Right near the airport we spotted Ernie's. We told the server that we had to make a plane. Boy, did she deliver. The pulled pork and brisket were exceptional. The portions were huge. The drinks were great. We didn't want to leave, but we had to make our flight. This place is excellent. Check it out. Even if you're not flying out of town.

Had a barbequed(slow smoked) pullled pork sandwich and all I can say is WOW!! Best sandwich ever. The bread was fantastic, with an awesome barbeque sauce and the most succulent and tasty pork.
