Recommendations for Family Friendly eats in Ft. Lauderdale staying at Marriot
We are staying at the Marriot vacation club on 21 South Lauderdale Beach Blvd. We are not renting a car, so will be walking or taking water taxi, etc.
Looking for family friendly places, outside dining/water would be nice but good food is more important. Seafood, burgers, mexican, asian, italian all good.
Via water taxi there are several options, most offering outdoor seating, reasonably decent food, and are used to accommodating families. Also, it would be a longish walk or a very short taxt ride but I highly recommend the ocean front dining at the Pelican Resort.
Coconuts - Nice for sunset over the water, especially good for Paella on Tuesdays.
Downtowner Saloon - Very enjoyable 20 minute ride up the New River for good burgers, a great Asian style seared tuna on a salad with ginger dressing, and a pretty nice version of steak and frites.
15th Street Fisheries - Downstairs has good fish sandwiches and lots of hungry fish ready to gobble up a french fry. Upstairs is more upscale with nice views and passable but not spectacular food.
Southport Raw Bar - Decent fish sandwiches, mini-burgers, & great raw oysters.
Pier 66 - Rooftop Sunday Brunch is pretty amazing but somewhat pricey.
Hope you enjoy your stay!
Try Market 17. Great food. For an bit of a different experience try dining in the dark at this restaurant.
