Fort Lauderdale Brunch

I have lived in Fort Lauderdale for many years and have never found a good place for brunch. Now I've made plans for this Sunday to meet friends for brunch and I have no idea where to go! Help me please!

  1. If you're looking for a true brunch (buffet)-not breakfast, then I believe River House and Blue Moon have dibs. Trina has a very good breakfast, and of couse there's the lovely beachfront setting to go with it.

      1. You can try the Ritz Carlton on Fort Lauderdale beach -- they used to have an awesome brunch there when it was the St. Regis for $65 / person with all you can drink champagne, and a HUGE amount of selections -- now that its changed names they have toned it down a bit (cheaper, less selections) but its still very good. Great views, food, service, etc.

        1. Marriott Harbour Beach has a great brunch

          Also have to agree that Riverhouse and Himmarshee are really good too, and I'm saying that becasue I have friends that work at Himmarshee's erither ;)

            Do you know how much the Marriott brunch is? It's not listed on the website. Also, I was under the impression that The River House closed and is only open for special occasions.

            The Ritz Carlton still does brunch but it is a la carte now, not buffet. It's defnitely an option.

            I also heard that La Bonne Crepe on Las Olas does breakfast. Anyone been?

              La Bonne Crepe is very nice for brunch (crepes, omelets, etc.) Just be aware that they stop serving breakfast at noon (or maybe 1:00 on Sundays). You should call to make sure.

                Can not remember the cost at Marriott, have family that works there and they are not answering their phone.

                Again not sure about the River House, it has been a while since I have been there, however coming home next month for a visit ...Can't WAIT!
