Best lunch (on cheaper side) with water view in Ft. Lauderdale
Coming through next Thursday and have time for one lunch....would like to sit near the water.
What are my options for fairly inexpensive but really good.
From my minimal searching I have discovered The Downtowner and Aruba Beach Cafe.
I know that no water view expands my options (Pomperdale Deli, My Market, Rok: Brgr), but I do like the water and fresh seafood.
HIDDEN GEM! Every family member that visits and anyone who comes to Ft. Lauderdale and asks for a casual, affordable, but upscale meal with a view, always gets the same answer - The Pelican Grand Beach Resort on Fort Lauderdale Beach. Get your food served right on the rocking chairs on their covered porch with an ocean view no matter what the weather is like from their lounge (not the restaurant). There is an old fashioned ice cream parlor right in the building too. Take quarters, there is only metered parking.
Coconuts is a reasonably priced, casual seafood place with an Intracoastal Waterway view and is dockside to many boats. Ceviche, coconut shrimp, and seared tuna salad were all very good on my only visit. It always gets praise here for outdoor/dockside/on the water dining.
