A word from GG's Waterfront Bar & Grill
Affordable waterfront dining! Here you'll enjoy an amazing selection of day boat fish, fresh seafood, lobster and stone crabs, raw bar specialties and superb steaks and chops grilled to perfection! GG's Waterfront Bar & Grill is centrally located on beautiful Hollywood Beach, minutes from Ft. Lauderdale, Aventura and 15 miles from Miami. Overlooking the Intracoastal waterway with 450 feet of dock, this is a fabulous way to enjoy beautiful waterfront sunsets! Newly remodeled and updated, the interior is elegant, yet casual and comfortable. The main dining room also features views of our large, bustling open kitchen. You can even dine al fresco on the covered dockside patio or relax and have a cocktail, appetizers or a meal in our outdoor lounge or main bar. The restaurant is a Hollywood Icon - in the 50's and 60's it was the famous Rat Pack hang-out of Frank Sinatra and his buddies. Now you can enjoy our legendary waterfront dining and views! Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Disorganized, horrible service, long wait for food, sub-par food & drinks and over-priced for what you actually receive."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Visiting from Boston, MA and was disappointed with a restaurant the concierge recommended the night before. GG's we found on our own, and we could no have been happier. Everything was great!"

    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Outstanding food! The steaks are incredible! Cooked perfectly. And the Diver Scallops were to die for! Definitely will go back. This is probably the best restaurant on the beach. The service is impeccable. Friendly and courteous. The food is well priced. Actually, below some of the other high end restaurants in the area. The view of the intracoastal is amazing. I cannot say enough good things about the place."

  • "Shrimp appetizer delicious. my husband had stuffed snapper. it was very nice. my grouper was very bland would not recommend. Table outside overlooking water very relaxing."

    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "Two things. 1 valet line was 20 to 30 minutes long just to park. 2 please don't run out of those great desserts before I've had a chance to try them. I don't like dessert first. Otherwise great!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We made or reservation online. We arrived early, were greeted immediately. We were seated with a selection of areas prior to our reservation time. We chose outdoor seating. It was so beautiful and the ocean breeze felt great. Food was outstanding and well designed. It was proper temperature. Nathaniel was our server who was helpful in chosing our selections. He was friendly and knowledgeable about the specials and menu items. Will definitely recommend and go there again."

  • "Doesn't anyone train waiters these days. Constant reaching across people to serve when it was easy to walk around. Not knowing who ordered what. Taking away our bread plates after using them for shared appetizers requiring us to put the used utensils on the table. Three times I had to ask for new breade plates. Had to ask for bread when I saw other tables getting theirs. Trying to get us to order right away- enough already! This isn't inexpensive restaurant - service needs to be inline."

  • "Inside was a classic waterfront dining room with warm furnishings, but the patio was friendly, comfortable and energetic. We are a foodie family, and my sons raved about the oyster selection, our specials were fabulous- try the filet with crab meat, and the wine list was outstanding. Desserts did not disappoint, besy Key LIme Pie ever. We were comfortable in sporty casual. Our ten year old loved it too. Must haves- Pie, Crab Cakes, Mahi Mahi."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "Food I'd always fresh, creative AND delish. Only thing I do not like is having to pay for valet, think it really outrageous as we can park ourselves."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "We were were recommended GG's when the steakhouse at our hotel (Hollywood Prime) was booked. Visiting from out of town, my family and I relished watching the sunset and boaters cruise by from your waterfront deck. Dinner was perfect. Menu offers all of the surf and turf standbys one would hope to see. You manage be kid-friendly AND elegant at the same time. Highly recommend."

  • "Loved this place. Went back for lunch next day. Great spot on the inter-coastal."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "This is a nice restaurant, typical of the area and those restaurants on the ICW. It is a bit crowded but handled well, with decent service and good, but not great food. Wine selection is good and tables on the deck overlooking the ICW are delightful. Its a little pricey but c/w with the local."

  • "Fresh tasty grouper & Mahi , excellent filet. Friendly Knowledgable service. Nice view over Intracoastal waterway But soooo busy & very loud. Make a reservation or wait till 9pm to dine. Take the Hollywood beach trolley or water taxi, dropping off & picking up car to valet Takes a whole as they are so busy. There is no self parking."

  • "We love GG's and try to go once a month (travel between KC and Ft Lauderdale monthly). Diego from Peru was our waiter and he was excellent. Scallops, Pork Chop, Filet, and Salman were the four entres and all superb. Caesar and a wedge were shared between the group. $4 valet very efficient. Hostess staff and management attention made this an all around great experience. See you again in a couple weeks. Pam and Dave"

  • "Lovely setting and ambiance. Fish overcooked and room temperature. Pricey for the quality."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Been to GG's many times. Great for lunch always, but often hectic nights. Must advance book to get in and excellent food. The big variable is the server. Some are great, but a few are to be avoided. Weekends and nights, the Valet experience is not good. There is no validation and the parking is a nightmare."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "A very good restaurant with excellent location. We had the recommended fish of the day, two varieties. Unfortunately, the snapper was much overcooked. Nevertheless, we think this place is worth a visit but be careful if you chose a fish dish."

  • "GG's is on the intracoastal waterway in funky Hollywood Beach. My husband and I went for the sunset knowing it was going to be expensive. It was! Oysters were plump; stone crab legs were large and meaty. Wine was fairly priced. Snapper w/crab was excellent; key lime pie was creamy good. Our server (Sue) took excellent care of us. We loved spending every dollar! A lot more upscale than restaurants on the beach, though dress was almost as casual. A comfortable experience."

  • "Special vibrant restaurant with good food and wine."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "GG's is one of our go to favorites! The lobster (shelled) Cesar salad was delicious with the meat cooked to perfection andcfresh crisp greens. The warm French bread with hummus is always excellent and service is professional. Located on a neighborhood lake, the calm waters provide a lovely view with boats coming & going from the dock."

  • "Beautiful restaurant with excellent food, service and atmosphere."

  • "Great dinner on a perfect night to be seated outside watching all the boats by. Food, drinks and service were excellent."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Request a scenic patio table and enjoy the yachts and rowers floating by! Organic salad was overpriced and stingy on ingredients listed. The many entrees are pricey , most with only one veggie side. The fish is fresh and there are a variety of Landlubber entrees too. Bring extra bucks as the valet charges $4.00 up front. The happy hour is a good value with half priced martinis, wines, mixed cocktails and apps and the unfinished drink brought to your table after closing your tab. had to ask for extra lemons and refill on water at table. Comp hummus w/bread was delicious. The dessert of Gluten- free chocolate cake was great."

  • "Reservation was on time even though the restaurant was busy. Staff was pleasant and attentive. Outdoor sitting was wonderful with a awesome sunset view. Food was served without delay. Nice wine list. The evening ended with a Manatee visit close to our table location... That was luck but none this less a great ending!"

    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "GGs is a perfectly good restaurant with nothing especially wonderful or terrible. The setting is beautiful and the prices are fairly reasonable as restaurants with a view go. The food is okay but no better or worse than upscale seafood chains. What's missing is a selection of non-fussy fish entrees. On the other hand, the semi-fussy sea bass over white beans was quite good. No anchovies were available for the Ceasar salad, so it wasn't really a Ceasar salad was it?"
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "Not as great as it has been on other trips. Grouper dry and cold and key lime pie a bit too sweet. Did not honor my request for outdoor table even though I booked weeks ago."

  • "Super Bowl Sunday evening, so it was expectedly uncrowded. Therefore the noise level was very low. Ate outside and enjoyed a classic sunset on the water. Hard to imagine a more beautiful waterside dining experience around. Service from start to finish was flawless. The food was clearly superior and fairly priced for the most part. A couple entrees seemed a bit overpriced but overall good value for the price. A quality meal and good value for a special evening. One disappointment: the crab cake appetizer was poor. Almost all breading with little flavor at all. On the positive side, I had one of the best scallop entrees I've ever enjoyed anywhere."

  • "We have had extraordinary food & service on every occasion we've been to GG's Waterfront Café. Sunday brunch was fabulous, and we've already booked again to treat friends to Brunch. Wine was lovely and well chilled. Thank you to Philip, our fabulous waiter, and to the young ladies who manage reservations, and even ask "Do you want a Fresh Napkin"? The entire staff is pleasant and efficient. Thank you."
