    1. go up to Pompano for the SUNFISH GRILL_ super tiny- make a reservation- WONDERFUL seafood- not cheap

      1. Sunfish Grill is no longer in Pompano Beach. It has moved to a new and larger location on Oakland Park Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.

        Still need reservations and still wonderful.

        1. I've been going to Sunfish Grill for over 7 years... always the same excellent quality from day one...
          Kudos to Tony (Owner/chef)... Erika (his wife who makes all of the breads and desserts)... and staff...
          They do it right every night!
          You definitely need reservations, even in their new, larger location (which includes a bar now).
          Don't miss it!

          1. Joe's Riverside Grill is very good as well. It's by the Sands Marina and Hotel. Park across the street in the public parking.

            I especially like their seared tuna with strawberry/jalapeno butter.

            Oh, and everyone should try Cap's Place in Lighthouse Point. Park in the Parking Lot and take their ferry boat to the restaurant. Great place with loads of history. I like the food, but some friends have said that it was just ok. If crabcakes are on the menu though, you can't go wrong, they are fabulous with NO filler to speak of.

              I second Cap's Place, though not entirely for the food. Went there recently, and while the food's not all great (salad was like bagged, the vegetables were overcooked), they get good fish and know how to cook it the old-fashioned ways. Broiled yellow snapper, those crabcakes, and sauteed scallops were all excellent, as was an obviously from scratch Manhattan clam chowder. It's not the Sunfish Grill or anything, but the setting -- an old, creaky-floored barge on stilts in a woodsy clearing on the water -- makes up for enough.
