The Bimini Boat Yard is right there and quite good. Outback too, is right by Embassy Suites as well. ..The Southport shopping Center there, has a couple of restaurants too. All right in that area..

Here's a list of the SE 17th Street area Restaurants...

Tara Steak & Lobster is right next door to Extended Stay America...

Carlos and Pepe's (Mexican) & Durty Harry's (bar with food) are in
the same shopping center as Tara. There's also a small diner in that strip
mall that I've been told has an excellent breakfast.

Einstein Bros. Bagels is across the street from Holiday Inn Express/Extended
Stay America... http://www.einsteinbros.com/

Bimini Boatyard and Bravo (great Italian restaurant) are both across the street
from Holiday Inn Express/Extended Stay America, and about a block east, opposite
the Renaissance Hotel... http://www.bravoitaliano.com/

Jack Jackson's new restaurant FISH is across the street from the
Renaissance hotel, attached to the Convention Center complex at the entrance to
Port Everglades... http://www.fish-fl.com/

Chuck's Steakhouse... http://www.chucksflorida.com/

And Waxy O'Connors are both across the street from Embassy Suites, a long
block west of Holiday Inn Express/Extended Stay America...

Outback Steakhouse and Del Rio Tex Mex are just west of Embassy Suites, and
Quarterdeck is across the street and a block north of Embassy Suites on Cordova
Road, just beyond Winn-Dixie... http://www.quarterdeckrestaurant.com/

Kelly's Landing is a great New England style seafood place in a strip mall
on Cordova Road, across the street from Winn-Dixie.

If you want some excellent ice cream, Aspen Ice Cream is next door to Office
Depot, in the large yellow strip mall across the street from Tara and Carlos
and Pepe's... http://www.aspenicecream.com/

There are 3 large strip malls around Holiday Inn Express/Extended Stay America
- More or less across the street, next door, and behind, as well as several
smaller ones. There are at least a dozen other small restaurants scattered
throughout those strip malls, plus a number of fast food and carry-out places
in the area as well... You'll never go hungry along that section of SE 17th
Street, there's something for every taste and budget.

Publix grocery store is in the large strip mall a block south on Cordova Road,
behind Embassy Suites. Publix sell beer & wine as well as being very large,
very nice grocery stores.

Barnie's Coffee & Tea is in the same strip mall as Publix, a few stores
to the west, next to Carvel Ice Cream... http://www.barniescoffee.com/

Crown Wine and Spirits is across the street from Embassy Suites, behind the
Chevron station, and 67 Wine & Spirits is across the street from Crown.

Winn-Dixie grocery store is next door to Crown, and there's a CVS drug
store in the same strip mall as 67 Wine & Spirits.

Walgreens drug store is a block east of Holiday Inn Express/Extended Stay
America, across the street from the Renaissance hotel.

The restaurants above are just those that you can easily walk to. If you take
the Water Taxi you can easily get to dozens more. The nearest Water Taxi stop
is 2 long blocks east, under the SE 17th Street Bridge, in front of the Marina
Marriott hotel... http://www.watertaxi.com/FortLauderdale/FLLHome.Asp

Some popular places easily accessible by Water Taxi are...

15th Street Fisheries... http://www.15streetfisheries.com/

Jackson's Steakhouse... http://www.jacksonssteakhouse.com/

Shirttail Charlie's... http://www.shirttailcharlies.com/

Fort Lauderdale Riverhouse... http://www.ftlauderdaleriverhouse.com/

Downtowner Saloon... http://www.downtownersaloon.com/

Shooter's Waterfront Cafe, and at the same stop Taverna Opa...

Charlie's Crab... http://www.muer.com/locations/chcrab...ab-ftlaud.html

If anyone would like to splurge and have a great dining experience, take a quick taxi ride from 17th Street to The Capital Grille on East Sunrise Blvd., Fort Lauderdale at the entrance to the Galleria Mall. The food, service and ambiance is truly memorable. Check out their web site: thecapitalgrille.com if you're interested.

A great old fashioned ice cream palace is located 15 minutes by taxi/car...Jaxson's in Dania Beach, they make their own ice cream and toppings, great tuna sandwiches, foot long hot dogs and sweet potato fries.
