For a $$$ cool place, try Chimas (might be off in the spelling), it is on Las Olas and is a Brazilian Steakhouse where they bring out slabs of meat and cut it on your plate. Be hungry, skip the salad and be sure to fill up on the good meat ( skip the chicken, skirt steak cheap stuff).
Coconuts on the intercoastal I like but I am sure it will be slammed boat show weekend.
Spazio on the beach is also good, great atmosphere and good people watching.
Cafe del Mar is also on the beach and same owners as Spazio
Casa D'Angelo is some of the best food in Lauderdale but hard to get in on the weekends. If you can get in, this would be my first choice.
Cafe Martarano is my personal favorite but not cheap. It is a dining experience.
Now if you want to eat until you puke,
There a bunch of them on Las Olas but I think they are over priced and good not great.
Shulas thumbs down
Blue Martini is good for an after dinner drink, there is now a PF Changs and a Seasons 52 next to it.
The St. Regis and The Atlantic have restaurants very pricey not my favorites but good view of the Ocean.

Directly across the street from where you are staying is the Bahia Cabana, good for lunch and late night drink when all else is closed.
Scarletts is great, they are going with the wrong girls.
Thanks for all your help! I been to Miami many times for the Boat Show but never to Fort Lauderdale. I am looking forward to the show for many reasons!
Haven't been in a couple of years, but I used to love the Italian at Bravos in the strip mall close to the old Pierr 66
