Ok, I'll admit the food at the Downtowner is not best I've had, and frankly it's not even close. However, there are countless restaurants with average food, but they are still good places to go. The Downtowner is a great place for a number of reasons besides the food. First, of course, is the location. Right on the New River across from Huizenga Plaza with a view of downtown Ft Lauderdale, and lots of beautiful boats passing by. Second, is their make your own Bloody Marys on the weekend, which makes for some surprisingly interesting conversations at the Bloody Mary fixins bar. Third, is the staff. They are very friendly and welcoming. Half the fun of going here is talking to the bartenders. I could go on and on, but go see for yourself. Grab a table outside and enjoy the view.
