Southport Raw Bar

Hours:MON
8AM-11PM

Fun fact time: not only is Fort Lauderdale one of the yachting capitals of North America, but the city also has over 165 miles of navigable waterways. This not only explains the amount of yachties you’re likely to match with on Tinder while in town, but also why eating seafood on the water is such a Fort Lauderdale thing. There’s no better place to do that than at Southport, a salty old seafood spot with waterfront seating and excellent seafood. The dining room has a charming nautical aesthetic, but you really want to sit outside on the dock. When it’s time to order, get anything that used to swim and is now fried. A frozen rum rummer isn’t a bad idea either.

Greek Islands Taverna

Greek Islands Taverna is a classic spot in Fort Lauderdale serving some of South Florida’s best Greek food. They don’t take reservations and there’s usually a wait, so come early.

Riverside Market is a beer bar in Fort Lauderdale that used to be an old convenience store. They have a great selection of beer, and the food is good too.
