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 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!

Never fails, never disappoints! The food is delicious, the menu is creative. Staff is very accommodating, careful and friendly.
We sat outside on a perfect Sunday afternoon. It was breezy and warm with a great boat parade passing by.
Pricing is a little high (especially for a Sunday brunch or lunch) but worth it.

Service took a long time, like over an hour for lobster and some pasta. The table next to us sat down after we did, both ordered steak, and finished by the time we got our food. Server wasn’t all the personable and mentioned once that our food would be coming up shortly. Lastly, I ordered seafood risotto to go for my wife. It was nice and hot, which was good and came with bread/butter, but every bite was filled with sand grains. I expect a little bit with mussels and clams, but every bite was crunchy and grainy.

The food was the worst I’ve had at an upscale establishment. The filet was overcooked and extremely dry. The potatoes were dry and stale. The drinks were sent back because they too were horrible. I was very disappointed.

This was our 1st time in the restaurant, and it was recommended by a relative. The outside seating had an awesome view of sunset and boating activity added entertainment. Food was outstanding and our service was very commendable.
At the end of the night I get to find out that restaurant management made an arrangement with my brother to pay for our special evening - that was great surprise and was much appreciated.

First time having lunch at the restaurant. I found it overpriced and not too much information given about the menu either by our waitress. They seem to be all in a rush for you to order more and more drinks and food, even removing plates before you get the chance to finish your dish. Definitely service can be improved. And pricing too. A tiny 2 piece avocado toast costs $18.00. We spent $150.00 with tip conveniently added to it, and we left hungry. I will not return.
