7. Himmarshee Public House

Himmarshee Public House will be hosting a Miami Dolphins Season Opener Block Party on Sunday, September 11, starting at 1 p.m. They'll be showing the Miami Dolphins vs. Seattle Seahawks 4:05 p.m. game on a giant 16-foot LED screen.

Public House will run drink specials featuring beer from the best local breweries and spirits and specialty cocktails at an outdoor, full-service bar during the entire slate of games. Fans can watch games on the street and play cornhole while enjoying music from DJ Mark Gallo. Guests will also have the chance to win awesome raffles and giveaways.
6. Twin Peaks Davie

This was bound to happen. At some point you knew a breastaurant was going to make the list — we are talking about football, after all. Twin Peaks is obviously high on the atmosphere list, if that's the sort of thing you're into, but they also offer some of the best bar food in Broward. Any place that offers Billionaires Bacon ($4.99) — a cup thick cut bacon covered in brown sugar, red chile flakes, and smoked paprika — is doing something right. Their double-stacked nachos ($12.99 for the steak version) are also a favorite during games. 

Twin Peaks drink specials include their signature "teeth chattering" 29° Fahrenheit beers, $2.99 Cheap Shots selection, and a selection of their red and white wines. 
5. Duffy's Sports Grill

Duffy's sort of overwhelms you (in a good way) with their plethora of football specials, so lets dive right into it. Their Football Features menu offers the following drink specials: 2-for-1 drinks, $2.50 Miller Lite or Coors Lite bottles, $3.50 Blue Moon, $3.40 Big and Tall Bud Light 22-ounce pours, and $4 Labatt Blue 24-ounce cans. The All-American bloody mary comes topped with bacon and a cheeseburger slider for $7. 

Food wise, there is just as much going on, if not more. Duffy's Starters menu includes Sesame Tuna Tostadas ($9.99), Frita Sliders ($7.99), Open-Faced Meatball Sliders ($8.99), and Honey Chipotle Wings ($12.99). For the main courses, there are Surf-or-Turf items, steak selections, and much more to choose from. 
4. American Social

Watching the games at American Social will undoubtedly be more about comfort and atmosphere than it will be about grabbing the cheapest domestic beer. They carry a vast assortment of some of the finest craft beers from all around the country, like Dogfish Head 60 and 90 Minute, as well as the local stuff from Funky Buddha and Wynwood Brewery.

The food is where you win here, as you can watch the game while nibbling on their brunch menu every Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The brunch includes made to order omelets, Belgian waffles, chilled snow crab legs, biscuits and gravy, bacon, sausage, pastries, fresh fruit, smoked salmon, prime rib, and much more. Regular menu and drink items are available throughout the games as well. 
3. Bokampers Sports Bar & Grill

Everything you've been accustomed to enjoying at Bokampers will stick around this football season, plus they will be adding some goodies to celebrate the best sports time of the year. Bokampers will run season-long specials that include $3 Svedka flavor and Bacardi flavor shots; $4.99 22-ounce Budweiser, Bud Light, and PBRs; and a $6.99 Svedka flavor. Bacardi and Captain Morgan doubles will stay available all day, seven days a week, during football season. Also, MVP members get double points on all takeout orders every football Sunday.
2. Quarterdeck Neighborhood Grill 

Quarterdeck on Dania Beach is a unique location to watch sports. I mean, it overlooks the ocean; you could do far worse. Happy hour specials here include two-for-one liquor and house wine, $3 domestic bottles and pints, $4 imports, and $6 craft beer selections.

Every Saturday during football season, Quarterdeck will offer a half-rack of ribs and shrimp dinner for $11.99; every Sunday, a NY Strip steak dinner for $11.99; and for Monday Night Football, a full rack of ribs dinner for $11.99.
1. Bru's Room Sports Grill

Bru's Room has already been a local favorite spot for years to watch the games, but this year they have certainly upped their game in an effort to get you to what the games there. As if you needed another reason to dive face-first into some Triple-Threat wings, Bru's is making sure your decision isn't that hard on the weekends.

Bru's has a new Sriracha Bacon Ranch Burger they'll be serving up during games this season that looks absolutely ridiculous, and to wash it down they'll be offering happy hour specials that run all day everyday so no matter what time you team plays you'll be able to get sauced on the cheap.
