Seafood Restaurant
$$$
“Foodies flock to this to this upmarket fish house with a romantic vibe, outdoor deck & Sunday buffet brunch. The restaurant is known as one of the finest dining establishments on America’s east coast serving fresh seafood by the waterway. It is a well-known fact that Blue Moon offers the finest waterfront dining in Fort Lauderdale. Prices range from $30-$80 for an entree so it can be a bit pricey but it's 5 star and well worth it. If you are on a budget, try lunch which is still good for half the price.”

Meal Takeaway
$
“$ “Those in search of an affordable sandwich seek out this “popular”, casual Broward chain for some of “the best hoagies” around, which are piled so high “you must use two hands” to hold everything together; a wait in line comes with “a bit of a show” as “quick” staffers “toss the cold cuts” to catchers with open hoagie rolls (“watch out for flying meat”).” Zagat MY RECOMMENDATION: Ok this is not technically a restaurant but I had to include it in the list because it’s a locals favorite. The best Sandwich you’ll have, this is a great option for a quick and easy lunch or to take to the beach or a boat day. ”
