First time. Do not come in with out a resv. Wait 35mn when was told only 15. Waited for an HR for dinner. My salmon was tasty but over cooked. The fry's was ahh and cold. Wife's steak was good. That's the only reason they got one star. The bathrooms need attending. 2 HR dinner. What would you say?

Took our family for my Mom's B'day Brunch. The food and selection was great as was the service!! They've done a beautiful job on the renovation of this establishment. The ambience at our inside table by the window was spectacular and we especially loved the backround sounds of the live steel drum musician only steps away from us. We live in Ft. Laud. yet felt like we were in the Carribean. Only problem, if at all possible you've got to leave room for the dessert offerings because they are to die for.

A group of 5 of us went to Bimini Boatyard for lunch on the advice of our hotel concierge. Two people arrived a few minutes before the rest of us. When we told the hostess we were meeting a couple of people who were already there, she said we were welcome to walk around and find them. Since they had arrived just a few minutes before the rest of us, I would have thought she would know where she seated them and would be able to take us to them.
The server wasn't awful, but we did have to ask for refills and other things like ketchup for our fries. I guess I would characterize the service overall as indifferent.
The food was ok. I had the grilled mahi mahi sandwich. It tasted ok. It came with shoestring fries. I'd prefer a thicker french fry, but whatever.
Even though there weren't very many people in the restaurant, it seemed very noisy, and it was hard to hear what people at the other side of our table were saying. Perhaps that was because another large party was right beside us. Since there weren't that many people in the place, i wish the hostess would have had us sit a little bit further from the large party.
Overall, the place wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great. it just...was

We visited during the Ft Lauderdale Yacht Show. Great location and nicely themed upscale casual atmosphere. We ordered Grilled Mahi Mahi and a Porterhouse steak, The fish was dry and overcooked and the steak was Pork Tenderloin. Waiter claimed he misunderstood order but had asked how to cook the steak. Second round of beers were served warm and rather than replacing them waiter offered to put them on ice for a while. The manager apologized and replaced the Mahi Mahi with Swordfish and reordered the steak.
The steak was extremely tough and lacked any flavor. The Swordfish was very good and cooked just right. The waiter developed an attitude and removed the steak and warm beers from the bill. The restaurant looks great but lacks everywhere else.

We were told by relatives here in F/L to go see the place. Great location on the river and great food.
We all loved it. The menu was kool. The Seafood all stylized in a Caribbean nature, was some of the best we had the whole week we were here.
The dining room is large. Enough room to fit a small army. The view of the yachts outside made for a great backdrop for dining.
The patio was too hot, so we went inside for dinner. They need canopies outside or something.
Really good overall.

We were on vacation in Fort Lauderdale in March. The concereige at our hotel this is the place to go for a great Caribbean food experience.
He was right. the menu was very innovative and extremely decorative.
We came back for lunch the next day and found the room full. The lunch business was better than the dinner business the night before. The crowd was mostly local business people. You could tell because people were getting up from their tables and visiting others on other tables. Any placer that is this busy for lunch and dinner must be a great restaurant.
We loved both times we were there.
