Ft Lauderdale Seafood Restaurants

Who serves the best seafood in the Lauderdale area? Particularly interested in fresh grouper.

  1. Sunfish Grill without a doubt. No need to look further.

    1. Be careful of phony grouper. If you see a "deal" on grouper, chances are very good it's some other fish. Real grouper is on the expensive side.

      1. re: CFByrne

        BTW my reference is NOT to any specific restaurant AT ALL (it may have appeared that way), just Grouper in general in Florida.

      2. For what it's worth, though I hate to spoil dinner, most scientific sources agree that eating grouper is best avoided; this is one of the fish on the verge of collapse. This is part of the reason that the "phony" grouper exists, and possibly, it's not such a bad thing, though clearly unethical.

        1. It's not a "seafood" restaurant per se. But Greek Islands Taverna does fantastic octopus and their fish dishes are really good. They are a lot cheaper than places like Sunfish. I think their "grouper" is really delicious.

            We had a whole yellowtail snapper there a couple of weeks ago that was very good.

          2. I like the recommendation for Sunfish Grill. Also check out 3030 Ocean

            Third choice would be Blue Moon
