Any Day of the Week is for Beachfront Dining in Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale, Florida is one of America's premiere beachfront resort cities. From the world over, millions of eager vacationers arrive to experience all this Venice of America and it's only natural to gravitate toward the beach. It is here where the ultimate vacation memories are made. Everyone wants to splash in the water, walk on the warm sand, soak up the sun, swim, fish and even boat, and take pictures of it all for memories later – and to even brag online a little. And when the fun is done it's time to eat, and where better than some of the many beach and waterfront eateries that make this place even more memorable. We at 10best enjoy scouting the city to try old favorites and discover new eateries that are making the city buzz. Fine dining has plenty of offerings here for that special occasion. From the famous and the elegant Shula's On The Beach, Casablanca Café and 3030 Ocean at Marriott Harbor Beach Resort and Spa, visitors and locals alike have found these restaurants conducive to the city's growing reputation as a world-class vacation destination. Beachside dining can also be fun. With places such as Lulu's Bait Shack and Bubba Gump's Shrimp Company, what could be more memorable? Fort Lauderdale is the complete package for those who love eating along the water. It's all here to enjoy!
