My husband and I are in our mid-30s and are heading to Ft. Lauderdale for a quick 3 day weekend in early May. We're staying at the Marriott Harbor Beach (already booked with Marriott points yay!), and are looking for help!
We would love to go out for one really nice dinner while we're there, with a view of the water. Is the upstairs at 15th Street Fisheries Dockside a good place? I've stalked the other posts and it has mixed reviews. Is there another place close by? I looked at the menus at Grille 66, Bistro Mezzaluna, and Market 17 and they didn't look as good to me as the one at 15th Street.
We will not have a car, so I would like to stay closer to the Marriott if possible. Can we take a water taxi from the hotel? I looked at the water taxi schedule and can't quite figure it out.
We would also like to go out for one casual dinner, also preferably on the water, and that has live music. Is there a place like that? Or should we go to Pirate Republic Bar, Downtowner Saloon, Shooters, or the Raw Bar?
We'll only venture out at night, as during the day I will be in or next to the pool, drink in hand.
Thank you everyone for any help you can give us! We appreciate it!
