New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

In 2008, Fort Lauderdale's Bimini Boatyard was sold. Chef Michael Bennet - a decorated veteran of Fort Lauderdale's Left Bank - was brought in to overhaul the menu, and the musty carpeting and worn dining room was ripped out and replaced with smooth hardwood floors and bright-blue seating. But does it matter what the dining room looks like or how many awards the chef has won? When I go to Bimini, it's not for ceviche (pre-made and terrible) or mango "coulis-grette" (watery) or however many tobacco onions you top your dishes with (they're soggy anyway). It's to sit on the docks and eat a fresh piece of grilled, Florida fish - snapper, grouper, mahi, or swordfish - which are still on the menu and still under $20 at lunch. As long as they leave that part intact, we're OK.

    “Worst Customer Service (management especially)” I will never bring a guest. The customer service is absolutely terrible (management). I have a complete distaste!!!!! The Food is not so great as to overlook the killed experience due to complete lack of customer service. There are too many waterfront choices to ever consider spending my time or money at this place again.

  • Bimini is a place that evokes the city in that there's (A) water, (B) outdoor seating, and (C) simply cooked seafood. (Happy Hour from 4-7 & 10-Midnight is an honorable mention)

    New executive Chef Jason Shipman adds French and Asian flavors to classic South FL seafood cuisine, from snapper to grouper & more!

    Unfortunately not impressed. Lights always flashing. AC too high, salmon was tough. Service - 1 person to 40 guest, really. I love the bathroom - very clean.
