Fort Lauderdale is world-known for its cruise port and is synonymous with cruising itself. Each year millions of visitors pass through the city en route to Port Everglades to embark on the time of their lives. Within just miles of this gateway are many classic restaurants that are eager to welcome new patrons as well as locals with the best food. We at 10best have scouted the area and have chosen ten of the top eateries to recommend. These restaurants have been around for many years and know how to please eager travelers. If it's steak that you're craving then make reservations at Grill 66 & Bar where patrons eat in style with great views of the playful Intracoastal Waterway and even pull up in their boat for the evening! Or consider Chuck's Steakhouse, a classic restaurant that holds a stellar reputation and a mouth-watering menu, or even Tropical Acres Steakhouse, which has been a local mainstay for over 60 years. Is eating organic important? No problem. Market 17 is just the place. With farm-fresh and organic ingredients of the tastiest kind, health-conscious diners have found their favorites right here. And, of course, for the seafood lovers it's got to be 15th Street Fisheries, which has been serving the finest seafood and is a local icon. If it's diner food that's craved stop at Lester's Diner, just blocks from the port's entrance. And for dessert? No place will hit the spot like Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor & Restaurant. Welcome to Fort Lauderdale and enjoy!
