Enjoying a meal while sitting dockside can connect diners to the serenity of water, just like enjoying a meal at a table doused in super glue can connect diners to each other. Fasten yourself to good eats with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of seafood, sandwiches, and drinks at Shooters Waterfront Cafe USA.
Since 1982, Shooters Waterfront Cafe has fused freshly prepped meals with magnificent intracoastal views, offering dockside dining that personifies the laidback air of Floridian shores. A convivial troop of servers hands out a menu stocked with classic café sandwiches, such as the Shooters club ($12) or an all-American cheeseburger ($11.75). Toss a net around jumbo fried shrimp ($17) or fish 'n' chips featuring beer-battered cod fried to a golden brown and served alongside a heaping pile of coleslaw and fries ($16). An expansive selection of drinks rounds out the menu, including wine by the glass ($8–$11), fishbowls, and tropical martinis that pack a fruity punch, just like a boxer who has burrowed his hands into a pair of melons.
Frequent live entertainment and special events add to the festive atmosphere at Shooters. Diners are also free to enjoy meals inside, or opt to lounge dockside and bet on seahorse races.
Shooters Waterfront Cafe USA
Shooters Waterfront Cafe USA showcases vistas of the intracoastal waterway as servers ferry plates of fresh seafood, burgers, and sandwiches to outdoor tables. Boat docking with valet assistance allows diners to pull up to the waterfront eatery after a day spent negotiating record deals with musically gifted whales. Shooters serves drinks on an outdoor patio, while their swimming pool allows guests to mimic those musical whales. On the weekends, a raw-food bar lures seafood lovers with fresh-caught oysters, clams, shrimp, and crab legs.
