“Best Food You Will Find in FLL!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Amazing food - just incredible. Seafood out the wahzoo! Restaurant is casual and sits on the Intercostal. Nice experience and friendly staff. They should write songs about the Key Lime Pie. Go - have the guacamole and cheese dip. Plus whatever seafood they tell you is in season. Best of all - you can go dressed however you would like!

“Great food and ambiance.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

On the intracoastal waterway with seating outside to watch the boats go by. This is a dog friendly restaurant to friendly dogs. Enjoyed this restaurant very much and definitely on my list to go back to.

“Good food and good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Went with a friend from Ft. Lauderdale to Coconuts and sat outside. The pelicans were within a handful of feet and they might feed the fish to encourage them to 'hang out' near the seating.

It's a casual place with a great staff and really good kitchen. We were there for a late lunch but the outside area was still full. Clearly the value is present because the staff seemed to know many patrons and a few other sets of diners knew each other.
Because the restaurant is in the back of the building (the owners have another place in the front that also looks good but we haven't tried it), it is away from the noise of traffic. They are only a block or so from the beach and they have parking but you have to look for it - and you can't just park and go to the beach.
We'll return again.

“A Great View with good seafood.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

After two days of dining in the Ft. Lauderdale area, we have found overall service very lacking. One exception was lunch at Seafood Watch. The ocean view was lovely and very relaxing. My crab salad was creative and filling. My husband had a fresh fish sandwich. Service was excellent. Only negatives was that the mark-up on the wine was larger than average and the guests were all quite a bit older.

“Relaxing Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

My wife and I went on 2/8 to enjoy the wonderful weather that Florida brings tis tine of year. We called ahead which was a good idea, otherwise the wait would have been longer. We sat outdoors with a nice intracoastal view while sipping cocktails. I'm sure the restaurant was at least 1/2 tourists, 1/2 locals as there were many out of state plates in the parking lot. But the food was very good -the lobster roll was amazing, and for those who want a lovely evening with a tropical feel - or a great lunch with great views - I would highly recommend a visit.
