Sunday night seafood in Ft Lauderdale near pier
Hi all! I'm a Chicago hound looking for great seafood in Ft. Lauderdale on a Sunday night in November. We're staying at the Hyatt Pier 66 and don't want to venture too far by cab. Also, nothing super dressy (i.e. jacket and tie). I've looked at Blue Moon and The Rustic Inn. Any opinions or suggestions?
I'm a big blue moon fan. Trendy and you can get a nice table on the intercostal. Top notch seafood. Rustic inn is near the top of my list of restaurants to try. Much more laid back.
There is Fish across the street from you on the 17th street causeway. i have had great experiences there but many on this board hate the place. LiveRock had a great idea about taking an evening ride on the watertaxi and maybe getting off somewhere for another experience. Other good restaurants with good seafood but not stricktly seafood restaurants include Himmarshee bar and grill, Johnny V's on Las Olas, and Trina's on A!A. More dressy would be Charlie's Crab next door to Shooters on the intercoastal. Never been to last one though.
I would recommend a ride on the Water Taxi. They will pick you up at the Pier 66 docks and deliver you to any number of stops with a scenic narrative along the way. The Las Olas Riverfront stop would give you the most options with Himmarshee Bar & Grill being a good choice for great casual seafood just a short walk from the dock.
