Planning a family vacation to Fort Lauderdale this summer? You’re in for a treat. The beautiful beaches, fun attractions, and warm, sunny weather will make the trip unforgettable.

Below are some renowned restaurants that you must try during a family outing or date night in this seaside city. Simply jump in a van rental or SUV rental from Carl’s Van Rentals, and prepare your taste buds for sensational Florida fare.

Rustic Inn™

Attention, seafood lovers. This casual restaurant holds a delicious gem: World Famous Garlic Crabs™. These crustaceans are so irresistible that they’ve lured several celebrities in for a taste, including Johnny Depp and Jimmy Buffet.

Park the minivan rental out back and enjoy cracking crabs on the dock, in the dining room, or at the bar. If crabs aren’t your favorite, you’ll find an assortment of other tasty dishes as well, including the following:

  • Fresh oysters
  • Grilled dolphin sandwich
  • Key West shrimp
  • And more

Casablanca Cafe©

Casablanca Cafe© is located near Las Olas Boulevard, just across the street from the ocean. This upscale restaurant, known as the most romantic restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale, cooks up amazing American and Mediterranean dishes.

If the weather permits (which it usually does), sit on the terrace. At nighttime the light of the candles and the music of the ocean create the perfect ambiance.
