What's good in Fort Lauderdale?

We have one night to enjoy Fort Lauderdale while waiting for a cruise ship. Haven't booked a room yet but that's minor compared to the food issue. We like casual places where the food and people are the attractions. If there's a fun little joint near the beach where we could get a nice fresh piece of grilled fish that would be perfect. Any suggestions?

  1. I think you would love Coconuts. It's on the water (not the beach), AIA just south of Las Olas. There is outdoor seating, live music on the weekends, nice menu and good wine. I've never had a bad time there. Very casual and relaxing. To indulge get the comfort bowl with lobtser. The salad with seared tuna is consistently really fresh and excellent, the fish tacos are wonderful.
