"The menu is not very exciting, nor does it change at all from month to month...no specials. Starters were fine, as were desserts. Main courses ( a pork chop and shrimp and lobster mac and cheese) were over cooked and pretty tasteless. Food came out much too quickly, as well. It was clear that we had plenty of time until curtain (almost 2 hrs) yet the appetizers were brought out just as we got our drinks.
We are not in a hurry to return, which is a shame, as we are season ticket holders.

Big City Tavern is a busy, vibrant restaurant reminiscent of the great urban taverns of Chicago, New York and Boston. A stylish, classic American restaurant, Big City offers a varied menu featuring dry aged steaks, burgers, fresh seafood, salads and fresh house-made pasta of the day. Some of the more popular dishes are the Pan Roasted Salmon with Tomato and the House-Made Charcuterie. The desserts are all enticing, all house made and all delicious. The extensive wine list emphasizes California varietals by the bottle or glass. With its magnificent grand bar always busy, Big City has a constant din of energy and conviviality. Big City offers outdoor sidewalk dining in the center of the action on Las Olas Blvd.<br /><br />Please call the restaurant to make reservations for parties of 12 or more!

S3, where sun, surf and sand uniquely fuse with steak, seafood and sushi for a perfect combination of island atmosphere and globally-influenced, sea-inspired fare.<br />A wood burning grill lights up the place and sets fire to the menu offering Grilled Octopus, Skirt Steak, Jerk Chicken Skewers, Shrimp Toast and more. Let your eyes do the ordering, via an expansive raw bar featuring fresh-caught delights like Tiradito Wahoo and Yellowtail, Snapper or snack plates like a Trio of Dips (whipped feta, chickpea, and roasted eggplants) or Goat Cheese Cakes. A moderately priced menu serves up a variety of small plates

"Delicious food combined with a gorgeous day overlooking the beach...Can't be beat! Especially enjoyed the homemade donuts with custard and the craft drinks made with muddled fresh fruit. Service was friendly and attentive."

"Food tasty, service fair. Drinks awful. Advertised a bloody Mary with all the trimmings; got a plain, watered-down drink. Waiter "explained" they had run out of carrots, celery and blue cheese stuffed olives...Really???!! Music is nice but way too loud."

Using only freshly-prepared, local ingredients in all of our dishes…Offering wines that come from environment-, and earth-friendly growers…Friendly, polite, and accommodating servers who invite you in and make you feel at ease as if you are a welcome guest in their home…This is Max's Harvest The atmosphere in our restaurant is much like that of a dinner party at home, and we only feed you what we would feed our own families. In fact, we believe the best medicine is at the end of your fork. Together with our local suppliers, we strive for sustainability and believe the best-tasting food is that which has just been picked from the garden, lovingly raised at the hands of local farmers or just plucked from the branch of a tree. Come dine with us. Celebrate the moment. Enjoy the Harvest.
