Stayed two nights across the street at Courtyard by Marriott Fort Lauderdale Beach before our Caribbean cruise. Location was great for us, right across the street & nice outside tables right on the harbour.
We ordered a few dozen of the special oysters, at $7 per half dozen they were plump, juicy & fresh & very reasonable priced. There were a number of selections available at a higher price by the oyster but we found the special ones to be fantastic.
From their we shared a few different dishes so we could try a few things. Amongst the best dishes were the lobster club sandwich made with large chunks of fresh lobster & the crab empanadas which were made on site. We heard lots about the scoobies, small crab claws in a garlic butter sauce, & while they were good, other items were much better.
They have many items on the menu, including some interesting choices available on the sister restaurant G & B oyster bar menu available in the restaurant as well.
The prices were a little steep for the portion sizes & the service was only adequate, but if you are looking for fresh seafood & are in the area, you should give it a try.

Old favorite restaurant, just stopped by the other day to have drinks. Valet parking, tips only. Service was great. The view spectacular. Tuesday, bottles of wine half price. Margarita's helped beat the heat.

This is a busy busy place so be prepared to wait even with a reservation. Totally worth it though! Food was delicious and service was good. Definitely recommend the crab scoobies and the pretzel crusted fish. Can't wait to eat here again.

Lobster roll was great. The warm shellfish were consistently too salty, I recommend you stick with the raw bar.
