Dinner in Fort Lauderdale near water taxi

We are spending one night in Fort Lauderdale prior to a cruise. We won't have a car but will be staying near the water taxi. We are looking for either seafood or Itialian. Anyone have a recommendation for a nice place for dinner. Thanks......

  1. I'm pretty sure that the water taxi stops at Blue Moon Fidh Company. It may also stop at da Campo Osteria.

      Don't know about Campo Osteria but Blue Moon is far from the Water Taxi.

      Attached is a link to the water taxi map and each stop will list the local restaurants.

      I think your best bet is the SE 9th St stop which is just south of Las Olas and walk over to Johnny V or Las Olas Cafe or Stop 5 Bahia Mar and head over to the Mariott for 3030 Ocean which may be best seafood in the county.

    2. Water Taxi stop #1 is at Oakland Park Blvd and the Intracoastal Waterway, at Shooters Restaurant. da Campo is a two block walk north. There is a nice restaurant at stop #1 called Charley's Crab. Stop #1 is at the NORTHERN most water taxi stop. You can go to and check out what restaurants are at what stop. At stop # 2, Galleria One, you will find three restaurants at the Galleria Mall, just one block west of stop #2. They are: Trulucks, a new seafood restaurant, Capital Grille and Seasons 52. All are great restaurants. Stop #2, Seville St., is Casablanca Cafe, Stop #4, Beach Place, there are some restaurants along the ocean. Stop #6, Pier 66 is Grille 66. Stop #8 is 15th Street Fisheries. Stop #9, Las Olas Blvd are several restaurants. But check out their website for more info.

      Have a great time!
