Ft. Lauderdale: Advice for picky family group for an anniversary celebration

We need a restaurant for a group that will be passing through town for my in-laws' 50th wedding anniversary. Our constraints:

- There will be 2 kids under 5, so we might like a private room
- My mother-in-law is leaning towards seafood.
- One of us can't eat garlic, so Italian is probably not going to work.
- four vegetarians in the group.

We'll be staying near the airport, so something within a reasonable cab ride would be preferred.

    1. How large is the group? Seawatch in Pompano Beach has a private room.

        There will be thirteen of us, thanks.

      2. Check with The Jib Room and see how they might be able to accomodate you. It's on the smaller side but a great place. "Floribbean" food, very consistent and friendly. Reasonably priced. On Oakland Pk Blvd just west of Federal Hwy.
