Sail-up Restaurants in Ft Lauderdale

Any of you Floridians know if there are any restaurants in and around the Ft Lauderdale area where you can book a meal, sail-up and stay the night at their dockside?

Re: Sail-up restaurants in Ft Lauderdale

How about 15th Street Fisheries / Lauderdale Marina?

Or slip at Las Olas Marina and walk the beach. Quite a few places between Seabreaze / A1A.

Can't be sure on overnight dockage, but Cap's Place in Lighthouse Point about 1/2 mile north of Hillsboro Inlet is a piece of history. Few spots have hosted Al Capone, and Winston Churchill and still serve good food. The is an unrelated marina that is a short ride away. Cap's has ferry service from the marina, or you can paddle your dink. If you get there when it is quiet the waiter will give you a tour that includes evolution of the restaurant from the old barge to it's current set-up.

With the exception if the Hyatt or Bahia Mahr I don't think they allow overnight dockage. Most are set up for you to dock and dine then move on for the next customer.

Re: Sail-up restaurants in Ft Lauderdale

I don't know of anywhere in the Ft. Lauderdale area that will let you stay overnight. There are lots of places to stop and eat, but you need to know that they are not catering to sailboats. Lots of boys and toys here and they use them to dine out. It's not unusual to see powerboats rafted 3 deep at popular places. That said you can stay at the city docks on the New River, Cooleys landing, or on the moorings at Las Olas and have a lot of nice places within walking distance. You can also anchor at Lake Sylvia and dinghy to a lot of places. If you do this be sure to try the Southport Raw Bar. ou can also tie up there and walk to Publix and a liquor store.

Re: Sail-up restaurants in Ft Lauderdale

Thanks to All, it looks like there's a great choice, especially if I use my dink.

Add to that list the Ft Lauderdale City Docks on the New River at Las Olas. It is a seawall side tie dockage right smack downtown with a wonderful shopping/eating area.
