For anyone who gets positively misty-eyed at the mere mention of Don Shula's Miami Dolphins 17–0 Perfect Season of 1972, the good news is that this beachfront spot also turns out culinary winners just as handily. Despite dozens of new, trendy steakhouses in Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Shula's on the Beach remains staunch competition. Carnivores rejoice over the aged premium Black Angus beef grilled over a super-hot fire for quick charring. The seafood is excellent, too,
and served in generous portions. The jumbo sea scallops and jumbo lump crab cakes are indeed "jumbo" and uber-delicious. For a more casual affair, check out the lively bar area adorned with sports memorabilia and large-screen TVs.
