Shooters, well known to “spring breakers” and “partiers” decades ago for activities like wet T-shirt contests, has undergone a complete renovation and is now positioned as an high mid-end bar and dining destination.  It has a nice deck and open walls overlooking the inter-coastal waterway, making for nice viewing in a nice room.   It is also a stop on the inter-coastal water taxi, positioning as a watering hole before or after venturing out on the town.  No T-shirts however.

The bartender was fast, tired, but on his game; more than can be said for the kitchen staff (sorry for the diversion into dining reviews) who took much more than a reasonable amount of time to deliver; although we were perfectly happy to enjoy the view and negroni.  Served cold with a cherry; not what you ordinarily see; adds a slight unusual taste; not unpleasant however.  Solid performance, good view; why not?
