For those of us with high expectations of low places, this raw bar has appeal. You can stumble up to the docks almost any time of day and sup on platters of gulf oysters and wash them down with ice-cold beer from the bottle or plunk down inside and escape the sun with an iced tea and a platter of meat loaf. Steamed clams are tender little nuggets, and fried seafood is nongreasy, freshly prepared, and downright cheap. Landlubber faves include chili dogs, mini burgers, Buffalo wings, and Philly cheese steaks.
There's a reason Fort Lauderdale is host to one of the largest boat shows in the world. With over 300 miles of navigable inland waterways, Greater Fort Lauderdale is known as the Venice of America.A l... More »
My local friends, we're only weeks away from the snowbirds flocking to South Florida to clog our roads, retail stores, and restaurants. You'll start to fill your bumper-to-bumper mornings by counting ... More »
Back in the dark ages, before it was one of the most profitable restaurants in the country, Washington, D.C.'s Old Ebbitt Grill ended up in a restaurant's nightmare, having sickened several patrons wi... More »
Hey, nice boat. Seriously. How many feet? It's a real beauty. Hey, if you're around one weekend, and want to hang out... we can go fishing or something. Then, when we're good and sunburned and haven't caught any fish, we can cruise on down toward the 17th Street Causeway and turn in toward Southport, a shining beacon at the end of the canal. The inside is fishy dive bar; the outside is more backyard picnic. The seafood options wash in on a tide of cold, cheap beer: raw or steamed clams, raw... More »
Southport is probably the most rustic locale in South Florida to sport free wi-fi, but nobody cares: A computer would only serve to distract you from the eye-popping menu served by Jack, Pat, and Buddy -- a marvel of freshness, generosity, and kinky economics. Raw-barring folks will want to start with the Raw Seafood Combo, comprised of four clams, four oysters, and four spiced (with pickling spice and beer!) shrimp, all of surpassing freshness. This comes at you for "market price," but... More »
Those scary written warnings that accompany servings of un-cooked shellfish are so uninviting, it's a wonder anyone eats raw oysters or clams. Risking hepatitis or vibrio just to swallow something salty and slimy takes a particular breed of cat (or kitten). But raw oysters are, in fact, a delicacy and reputed aphrodisiac, and South Florida's a prime spot for both Gulf and Atlantic varieties. Unlike many other restaurants -- even shacks right on the water -- Southport always shucks oysters to... More »
From the street, this place looks like any old nameless waterfront dive bar. No windows but for the two small portholes in the doors. But at the Southport Raw Bar, many people don't enter from the street. Here, patrons can pull up in their boats, dock, and take a seat at a table to order a pound of Old Bay-seasoned shrimp, prepared just the way they do it in Maryland (home of all things Old Bay). In fact, no less a personage than Jimmy Buffett dubs this place tops. The king of the... More »
If Fort Lauderdale's known for anything, it's raw bars. In addition to the old guard, avant-garde clam shacks pop up all the time. That makes the competition in this category especially fierce. But sometimes it takes an old-timer to show the young'uns how it should be done. Southport doesn't have fancy bloody Marys garnished with oysters, or tequila-oyster shooters, or oysters flown in from other places around the country. It just has good, honest seafood, served raw or cooked, according to... More »
A great little laid back food/watering hole establshment with some limited boat docking. A fun place for a few drinks and some rather good food at a reasonable price. Sort of a Key West like environment.
