15th Street Fisheries & Dockside Cafe – Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

How I ended up here isn’t particularly important. What is important, is that I did. 15th Street Fisheries & Dockside Cafe are actually 2 places housed in one location. I walked into the Dockside Cafe portion (the downstairs), decided it was too hot to sit outside and took a seat not too far from the bar. I ordered some of their Jumbo Buffalo Chicken Wings to start with. The Wings were fried and tossed in the sauce of your liking, I chose Hot. The Wings were great.

The 8 ounce Burger is a mix of ground Chuck and Brisket. There are 4 kinds of cheese to choose from (American, Cheddar, Swiss & Blue) and don’t think for one second that the idea of having all 4 didn’t cross my mind. Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions and Bacon could also be added so I, of course, chose Bacon.

As good as Steak Fries sounded, I decided some Yuca Fries were in order. The Yuca Fries were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, good stuff. The Mojo Mayo dipping sauce was killer. The Burger was just plain awesome. It was cooked to medium and the Bacon was crispy deliciousness. I was surprised to find such a good Burger in a place known for its Seafood but I’ll take it. And that’s what makes this Burger find so good.

    Sorry but judging from my experience and looking at your pictures this place remains an overpriced trap, complete with lousy service.

    Gotta go with the beast on this one Ray. I’ve been going there for years and yes it can be a little pricey (what do you expect eating on the intercostal) but the food has never been short of amazing and service has always been a top! Not to mention the 5:30 tarpon feeding show gives me a couple minutes to actually enjoy my meal with two little ones in tow..Cheers!
