Oustanding from the Valet to our server!! Oh yes, the food was excellent!
If you like a more contemporary setting with a view. It's highly recommended.
They go out of their way to make your dining very pleasurable!

This is a great restaurant
This is a great restaurant for a romantic diner on the inter-coastal. The food is exceptional with steak, seafood, pasta, and poultry dishes. The service is first class. Valet parking is reasonably priced. $3.00

Great spot for Sunday Brunch
Reservations are recommended. You won't be disappointed if you like seafood. Oysters served on the half shell, great salads, a nice warm breakfast bar, and desserts.

Good handling of an eccentric guest
Great all around. We were on vaca, so the prices were fine. If you're on a budget don't plan on drinking a lot- nY-comparable
Our server & the manager handled our want-to-be barefoot guest very well without making a scene (we met him at the hotel, so we didn't realize keeping his shoes on would be an issue)
Food was delish - my husband got the crab cakes (all crab) and sea bass; I had the grouper. Barefoot "Sam" got the lobster. No one was disappointed. The desserts were fab - definitely go for the key lime pie
All the drinks were good but I would have liked a bit more liquor in them for $10+ each
Great view; lovely decor. Good reco from one of our hotel servers

Excellent food and service
GG"s has consistently excellent food and service. I have been a customer for a long time and I am never disappointed.
6/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
Starting with wonderful service from our wait person Victoria - excellent flatbread - enormous shrimp and then great entrees. The seafood dishes - saalmon, florida Grouper and the veal chop were superb - then to cap theevening great key lime pie and flowerless chcoalate cake - a must if you are staying in the area

Consistently good waterside dining.
One of our local favs, GG's never disappoints. The mango mohito is delicious as is the warm bread delivered with hummus and soft butter. The kitchen does a nice job with their lobster Cesar salad which I request sans shell. The shrimp appetizer was excellent and a perfect lunch entree. Fresh seafood including a wide range of other items round out the menu. Our warm chocolate cake with ice cream was perfection. The water views can't be beat so all in all GG's is a home run. It's also well located for folks looking to meet between the Gables and Ft. Lauderdale.

Great seafood on the Intracoastal
GG's has turned into a really good local restaurant, specializing in fresh well prepared seafood. We went to celebrate a friends birthday and we were all delighted with our choices. Would recommend to foodies, families, groups and couples...romantic outdoor dining...although in the summer one would really prefer to be inside...it gets really hot and sticky outside day and night
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and Beautiful place sitting on the dock at waters edge.Staff was very good and on the spot
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
GG's had lovely food, great service, and beautiful views of the waterway.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great view of the lake
Lots of healthy options on the menu and a really beautiful view. There is usually a parade of boats and yachts to enjoy and occasionally a manatee or dolphin makes their presence known.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was disappointed that the summer menu wasn't available on Saturday when we ate there.The reason I met friends from Pompano there was because of that summer menu and the good value it offered.I had read about the summer menu in the Herald. The blurb about the summer menu didn't say it was only offered during the week. Of course I didn't think to call and ask since I made my reservation online at Open Table Everyone in my party ordered fish and not one of us was disappointed. One person took half home because the portion was so generous. I look forward to when it is cooler so sitting outside is a desirable.

Food was excellent w/good
Food was excellent w/good menu variety, service was efficient although glass of wine was forgotten by waiter. Overall good experience.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
A new favorite
High quality food, very well prepared, not too expensive.
The view from the deck is wonderful.
Service was good, but slow at the end. Also, wine service could be improved. No need to pour too much wine in advance, we like our sparkling wine cold and sparkling ; )
We have added this place to our favorite spot list
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Water by the sea
The restaurant has indoor and outdoor-dining options, the latter only for small parties. It is situated on the waterfront facing Hollywood Florida east across the waters. Good service and good seafood and dessert. Our overhead fan was unfortunately out of order, otherwise nothing to criticise.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dining experience!!!
Would definitely recommend, nice ambience with a great view. Service was good and food was very good and reasonably priced.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Happy Hour plus dinner
Arrived around 6:30. Had 2 drinks, shrimp and calamari during happy hour. We then split a main course. Everything was excellent. Service could not of been better. Just to keep it real...it was on a Tuesday night.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
GG's Is a Winner
A great location on the intra-coastal and a very interesting menu made this spot a natural choice for a celebration lunch. The food was excellent and the presentation was top notch. We will be back to GG's.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful waterfront setting!
We often meet friends at this favorite waterside spot. If you're looking for a romantic dinner for two, family gathering or wedding reception, GG's will deliver. We usually start with fried calamari. It's cooked to perfection: tender and never greasy. Fresh fish specials are consistently good though my husband always orders the fresh clams with linguini. Desserts are enough for two and service is always good. Our last two visits were especially fun since there were wedding receptions with terrific music. Valet parking is easy and they take reservations.

Nice place with a beautiful view
Food and service are good, prices are reasonable. My favorite part is gorgeous water view.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food yes, service not so much
Food surpassed my expectations. First class seafood, well preapred, large but not enormous portions, well seasoned (3/4 guests). Every course was good. Seafood risotto special was excellent. Pan seared bass was very good but the accompaniments of baby spinach and white beans were superb. Creme brulee dessert appropriately delicate and not oversized. On the food side all was good, excellent.
Service although very friendly was rushed, disorganized, Table too small for orders, despite the fact that a table for 6 was available all night that would have fit all our orders easily.
Music too loud, but kind of music not too annoying. Could barely hear anyone at the table when speaking.
Location excellent, on intercoastal. Grean sunset.

Tough piece of meat
Ordered the 15 oz ribeye special and the meat was so tough my jaws were sore about 5 min into the meal.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
the food was great! definitely
the food was great! definitely recommend sitting outside and taking in the incredible view. service was on point! and you can't beat it's location so close to the beach to go for a walk afterwards. Perfect for a date!

Works of Art on A Plate
Two of the most beautiful plates of food I have seen were enjoyed by us on Saturday October 5. We had an appetizer of Calamari (A+) , Stuffed Snapper, (Exquisite!), Diver Scallops (Phenomenal!) . Needless to say the food was incredible, service impeccable, experience unbelievable. Worth every penny and we will be back next time in town.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent waterfront restaurant.
Everything is top-notch though we enjoy the homemade soups. My lobster-Cesar salad was great and the kitchen has always honored my request to remove the lobster from the shell. The Key Lime pie was excellent and plenty for two. We return time and again to this spot.
10/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
Worth a visit
Hubby and I were visiting Hollywood Florida and asked a few people if they could recommend a nice place for dinner overlooking the intracoastal waterway and instantly GG's Waterfront was the one most mentioned. They all got it right. There is outdoor seating and indoor seating all looking onto the intracoastal. As the sun goes down there are see through blinds to cut out some of the glare and yet still allow for watching the beautiful boats going by. The food was excellent and there was a good choice of wines. This is a place worth well worth visiting.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I celebrated my birthday with six friends at GG's. I let them know in advance that this was my fortieth and was hoping for a table at the window so that my guests and I could enjoy the sunset. The staff really did a great job of making sure that everything was perfect. From the maitre d' to the bartender to our wonderful wait staff it was the perfect way to say goodbye to thirty nine and hello to forty.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Again and again.. we love GG's
Pam and I love going to GG's. We live in Lauderdale By The Sea (and Kansas City). Coming down every month GG's is always on our "must go to" list. Never disappointed. This trip a friend from KC was visiting. Entrees included Shrimp & linguine, Rib-eye and mushrooms, and Florida Grouper. BR Cohn Cab was only $40 a bottle. Even shared the Apple & Ice Cream Tart. Yummy!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Extra stars for scenic view
Ask for a patio outside table by the gorgeous Intracoastal, especially beautiful at sunset -weather permitting of course. That is the most special thing about his restaurant. The fish is fresh, the service excellent.
Very pricey,( my grouper had only one small side at $ 28) if romantic outdoor seating is special to you, it is worth it for the ambiance!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great stone crabs
Great outdoor dining on Intercoastal. Stone crabs in season and were great. Service was attentive but very busy at 8:30 p.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM

10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Great place to have dinner!

We will definetly go back!
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service could have been quicker.
The Service could have been quicker. Although my waiter was very good when around, he was spread too thin. They were short-staffed on the evening when I was there. That being said, the food was great and I will be back.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great renovation. Amazing able to dine in the intercostal waterway watching the boats eating great food and drink. Can also access by boat. Great place
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food with great view
The service was good, but the food and view outstanding !!
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
GGs offers a great tasty brunch in a very inviting atmosphere with a very attentive staff. The best part is that it the a whole lot of food a great price. You cannot beat it all the way around.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Consistently Above Expectations
This restaurant has seriously stepped up its game. The standard menu has some excellent choices but I have recently been ordering exclusively from the specials menu. My last meal there was a seasonal special - swordfish over a bed of creamy risotto with squash and spinach. Heaven on a plate. Truly a neighborhood gem. I'm thrilled to live so close by. One you've dined with them a few times the staff recognizes you and goes out of their way to say hello. They recently remodeled and really hit the nail on the head. It's a touch of SoBe without the attitude or ridiculous prices. I love this place - fantastic for lunch or dinner. Make a reservation - you won't be disappointed!
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
This restaurant is a must if you are in the Hollywood area. Food is delicious. We sat out back on the water and the view is spectacular. The fish was very fresh and raw bar had lots of choices. We will go back next time in the area.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
We took our daughter for dinner before she left for seven months to dance for royal Caribbean .. The restaurant was close to our hotel and the outdoor seating was a pleasant surprise.. Right on the intercostal waterway... Great food, good service... Pricey, , but you get what you pay for... Well worth the money!!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Simply the best!
Amazing food! Great chefs! The ultimate dining experience!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Enjoyed the service, i believe Alex was our server. Also the view (outside seating), food, and drinks were very good. I will definitely be back.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our first time. We lioved everything. We ate outside and it was a beautiful night. Watched boats go by. Had great service and great food. Cant wait to go back.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fantastic Food in a Scenic Setting!
We have enjoyed GG's twice now and plan to dine there regularly in the future. Service is superb (Philip is a stellar waiter!) and the food is fantastic. Our dining groups have enjoyed the rib eye on the menu and rib eye specials, the salmon, pasta shrimp dish, and the grouper all with rave reviews. All of the salad offerings are good too. Philip's dessert recommendations were also wonderful and the Pow Pow shrimp appetizer shouldn't be missed! The inside dining is elegant. Outside dining overlooks the intracoastal waterway with a steady parade of boats to watch. There is also an attractive indoor bar and the outdoor bar has live music (check on the music schedule).
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
As in prior visits, we really enjoyed ourselves. The Brunch is by far one of the BEST South Florida has to offer. it was a perfect Sunday outing. Our waiter Andres was AWESOME. We even had a chance to meet the manager Nate, which i think was great because he was all over the place making sure every guest was alright. Oh and the ladies/greeters at the front were so very nice. I Over Love this place.....
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
