Spring Break in Fort Lauderdale: Suggestions? - Page 2

post #16 of 23
Thread Starter 
Went to Joe's last night for dinner with friends and got the large stone crabs and a slice of key lime pie. Gotta say, it was kind of underwhelming. The meat didn't have much flavor to it but that's not to say it was bad. Key lime pie was pretty good, considering I don't even like key lime pie. It was sour at first, followed by sweet and then creamy.

Stone's really have no flavor in and of themselves. Its the mustard sauce and butter that do the trick. Did you at least have a good time?

Oh yes, it was a great time. The service there is EXCELLENT. I loved how I never had an empty glass of water. Personally, I consider a restaurant to have great service when they're attentive to the water in your glass. The restaurant itself was a lot classier than I had expected. I walked in with jeans and a t-shirt and was worried about not being allowed in due to the dress code, but they said it was a-okay. I got a very southern vibe from the place. The bread was good too. Now I'm back in Boston and so pissed about the weather lol.

Its Miami. Unless you come in right off the beach, nobody really gives a shit about how you're dressed.

yea. we were teased a week ago with a few days of nice weather then back to 30s and wind. Looks like it's still gonna be crappy for the most part next week too. Where is spring? I wish i would've seen this thread earlier. Just a tid bit south in hollywood there is this creepy but super tasty ice cream place with a old timey, circus/toy theme. But man are their sundaes huge and great. Also, Le Tub is kinda touristy nowadays since it blew up a few years ago but when i went back in 04 it was really great. Good burgers and seafood and if you can sit on the canal side you can watch the boats. The burgers ended up being #1 in either GQ or Esquire back in 05 or something for best burger in the country. Nothing crazy about it but well done. Nice and charred on the outside but tasty in the middle with lots of pepper and a good bun. Not to mention the casino in hollywood is pretty fun for a crazy debauchery filled night since the clubs are open till 4am and you can gamble after. I had a crazy night there with about 15 friends when someone had a birthday party there.

Yea. Forgot the name. me and 3 friends took a trip after graduation down there for a few days (stayed for free with his aunt in pompano) and went there. We were all thoroughly creeped out and it was very scary, circus and cult like.

Whatever sundae i had was phenomenal though
