Over the past several weeks, tourists and locals alike are rediscovering Dania's Historic Dockers Restaurant & Pub, which reopened in January under new ownership.

After a nine-month renovation, the waterfront establishment reopened, operating under the same name, but now under new management. It has a redesigned interior and larger menu. 

According to new owners Roger Craft and John Conlon, the changes are meant to offer a more upscale — yet still fast-casual — restaurant and pub experience to the surrounding community. Both men also own and operate the Downtowner Saloon, a Fort Lauderdale restaurant landmark. 

The Dockers property has a long history in Fort Lauderdale. The restaurant originally opened in 1947 as the Dania Yacht Basin Restaurant. Now, the restaurant has hardwood floors, a blue-lit interior bar, and seafood-centric menu items. The only thing that remains from the old restaurant: the outdoor patio seating and view of nearby Cozy Cove Marina.

Open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, the Dockers menu offers Floribbean-style staples like a blackened mahi sandwich, shrimp or fish tacos, scallops that come broiled or fried, fish and chips made with North Atlantic cod, and a salmon BLT. Larger entrees include a crab cake platter, flat iron steak, and several pasta dishes including fra diavolo with shrimp, mussels, lobster, and scallops in a spicy tomato sauce.

There's also the $10 Dockers burger — a half-pound patty blend of ground chuck, brisket, and short rib on a kaiser roll — served with a side of fries. Today, the same dish is available all day for half-price.

The Historic Dockers Restaurant & Pub is located at 318 N. Federal Highway, Dania Beach. Call 954-925-5962, or visit historicdockers.com.
