Boathouse at the Riverside

Downtown Fort Lauderdale’s Unique Waterfront Dining Experience

The Boathouse at the Riverside restaurant offers a relaxed, vibrant and elegant waterfront dining experience in downtown Fort Lauderdale. The interior of the restaurant sports a tropical fish tank that greets diners as they enter from the sidewalk. Boaters who’ve docked their boats to dine with us access the restaurant via our lush, tropical patio with some of the best waterfront views in Fort Lauderdale. At the heart of it all is a large, lively bar area perfect for Happy Hour gatherings, pre-dinner cocktails or just stopping in for a drink to see where the night takes you. Grab a seat and a take in the beautiful view of the New River, while perusing a wide selection of local & international inspired cuisine, creative specials and diverse cocktail options. After a day of boating or exploring Fort Lauderdale, join us for our delicious food and laid-back, stress-free “deck shoes and shades meets bottles and breeze” vibe.
