Look at my review of the Lighthouse Cafe - Same owners. Excellent seafood and Cuban food. They cook a great "lechon."

Watch the sunset over Miami, see manatees and real boaters, eat amazing snapper and Paella, but keep it a secret. Please.

We went to Boater's Grill during a hectic time (new years eve day at lunch time), so we had some issues with service (an appetizer we ordered was out, but we didn't find out until our mains arrived; we waited for our credit cards to arrive back at the table for about 15 minutes, etc.) The food is not cheap,...

I've always liked this bustling restaurant with its beautiful location overlooking No Name harbour. As others have remarked, if you can come by boat - there's usually plenty of space to moor, often adjacent to Boater's especially if you have a small craft. The service is friendly and efficient. The menu focuses on sea food with Latin/Cuban touches (black beans,... More

Wanted to share my experience at Boater's Grill. I hadn't been here in years and was eager to have dinner there with the family after a day at the Miami Seaquarium. Service was horrible. Slow and not friendly at all. The waiter seemed like he was rushed and rarely came back to check on us. Food was flavorless. the black... More

Boater's Grill is on the water at "No Name Harbor." That's the name of it - "No Name." When I first came to this harbor 25 years ago by boat, there was nothing. But Boater's Grill still feels like you're far far away from any city. The food is fresh and good. Not cheap, but not fine dining, either. You... More

I like this place.. going by boat is the best. The location is fantastic.. the food is good but the service and the old plastic tables need to be changed or improved. When playing music is too loud.. you cannot make a conversation Put some nice curtains on the sides... some candles... some nice furniture and interior decorations and you... More

Is not a fancy restaurant but the food is delicious, and the view is amazing. I had a seafood rice and was really good.

Love their view and the best they have is the fried fish. Also the fish fingers are amazing. Didn't like the fish ceviche. Lemonades are fresh but the view is the best you can have.
