family dinner in Ft Lauderdale

We are having a family get together in Ft Lauderdale (all adults). We love seafood. Not too expensive, but good atmosphere and great food on or near the beach.

  1. 15th Stree Fisheries is classic Ft. Lauderdale. Not on the beach but at a port so you can watch the boates go by. Been there a couple times with my older relatives who like it alot

    3030 Ocean is considered the best seafood in Ft. Lauderdale. Never been there but it is supposed to be incredible.

    A little farther north is Sunfish Grill which I think is incredible for seafood. My personal favorite for food but not on the beach or a port.

    I personally love Blue Moon for its atmosphere. On the intercoastal. South Beach Vibe.

    Good luck. Hope that helped

    1. Sorry to say that I don't think that there is wonderful seafood in Fort Lauderdale. We've found 15th St. Fisheries to be pretty awful. 3030 Ocean gets and Sunfish Grill get hype, but are unexciting. The same can be said for Blue Moon, although the food is good, but not great and the location on the intra-coastal, is wonderful. In Pompano, just north of Fort Lauderdale is Sea Watch, right on the beach, moderate pricing and decent, if uninspired food.
