Sad Shooters is certainly a Fort Lauderdale institution however it is not in Downtown Ft Lauderdale, it is directly across from the Tides at Bridgeside Square Condo on the intracoastal just south of Oakland Park Blvd.

It was only a matter of time before this place falls. I have been a guest of Shooters for 25 years and it has gone down hill for a few years now. Things were good after the orginal owners sold for a few years but it seemed like they forgot to take care of the building and the food and service both suffered in recent years. The new owner ( the one who bought from the Canadain's) really didnt have a clue what he was doing. I work in the restaurant business in Michigan this guy just kept cutting corner after corner and rasing price after price. I still go in for Happy Hour when I travel here a fe of the bartenders have been here for years and are the only reason I come back

Well...John had a lot of yachts there for years. But after 2008 the parties were over. Most of the yachts were repo-d and the main event "Steve Savior left. No one would have saved this place.. its time for change! Its a great location for a "newL idea.....
