NY hounds ISO late night dinner near Fort Lauderdale airport

We are flying to Ft Lauderdale on Thursday and staying at one of the airport hotels for the night, have an early flight out on Fri AM. Will not have a car. Any suggestions for a decent late night dinner (around 10 pm) within a short cab ride from the airport Sheraton? Nothing fancy, just a place for burgers/salads or maybe some raw bar. Seem to recall there was a crab joint nearby that was ok, not great. Help us avoid a meal at the hotel bar, please!

  1. The crab joint you're thinking of is The Rustic Inn. You're also right near the 17th Street Causeway....maybe a 10 minute ride from the airport. Here you can find Southport Raw Bar....just the type of place you describe.
