    Named Best Yacht Crowd Bar by New Times Broward Palm Beach! If you get sloshed enough and squint, it even feels like you're aboard a huge, decadent vessel minus the potential seasickness

    Open seating, dining on the water as boats pass by. Loved it. The bimini bread and sweet potato fries are amazing! This is worth a try if you're in the area.

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

    Great Sunday brunch!! Crab legs, oysters and smoked salmon. Omelet and pasta station....and the list goes on....more than anyone can possibly try!
  • New Times Broward Palm Beach
    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)

    Great food! The crab cakes and mahi mahi were great! The patio was the perfect spot to enjoy the food.
  • TRAVELHOST Elite of Greater Fort Lauderdale
    Bimini Boatyard Bar & Grill is a breezy, tropical waterfront destination serving remarkably fresh seafood cuisine infused by a Caribbean Wood-Fired Grill.

    Bimini Bread is a must. Easy access location as you can come in off your boat right in the back.

    Here on a typical Saturday night at 9pm. Place is out of the Bimini Bread, Shrimp Cocktail, Snapper, and Churrasco Steak, maybe more. Can't imagine going back.
  • Fort Lauderdale M.
    A wood-fired grill imparts signature flavor into filets of local swordfish, snapper, and grouper. - See more at:

    Bimini Bread was awesome but the snapper viequez was subpar. Also there was a private party going on in the room near our table. Couldn't get away from the Top 40 all night....

    The service and view were great. Food not so good. Overpriced. Do not get the creme brûlée. They fire it hours, maybe days earlier. Happy hour only at the bar. Mondays 50% off bottles of wine.
