Seafood
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!

Beautiful venue on the water and the food was incredible. We had the snapper and Brussels sprouts, both done to perfection. And wine list is very good. It was very crowded but the noise level wasn’t bad. Some water venues don’t have this quality of food. This one has both! Highly recommended.

It was my husband's birthday on a holiday weekend. We called to say we were running late because our hotel lost our car! We arrived half an hour late and they were very busy. We were greeted warmly by Raven and given a beautiful table with a water view as we requested with less than a 5 minute wait. The food was wonderful. My husband's short ribs were the best he ever had and my seafood pasta was cooked to perfection! All that, and Bill provided excellent service as well. He was very engaging, helpful and we didn't feel at all rushed, even though they were really mobbed. It was just a completely wonderful experience.

The location and food was very good. Very expensive but i knew that going in as i have been there multiple times. Had glass on wine at bar before dinner for for reasonable price considering where i was. However had two wines with dinner and when i received bill i saw that the server had given me Santa Margarita pinot at $16 a glass without even asking me. Do not arbitrarily give me top shelf without my approval. Very deceptive business practice which i hope does not happen to everyone. Will have to think twice before returning.

The location was great, right on the inter coastal, and we were seated outside as we had requested. There was a strong smell however, which my friend attributed to low tide, but I’m not wholly convinced of that
Our waitress came right over with menus, but after that she was hard to find

Had the salmon and got extremely sick. Called the restaurant the next day to let them know. Person said he would call back , never heard back from anyone. Very disappointed in the management didn’t even have the courtesy to call and ask any questions on the matter. Will pass on to friends and gamut stay away.

I have gone here for years and love sitting by the water. The food and service are always good and the view wonderful. However there was a strong smell of swamp gas or something awful that took away from everything. Every time a boat went by it churned up the water and the smell very difficult to enjoy a meal this way.

I WAS TOLD THIS WAS ONE OF THE BETTER RESTURANTS IN THE AREA AND I HAD TO TRY IT. I WENT DRESSED BUSINESS CAUSUAL GIVEN WHAT APPEARED TO BE A UPPER CLASS EATING ENVIORMENT FOR A 9;00 PM RESERVATION AND WHAT I FOUND WAS A CASUAL ATMOSPHERE WITH PATRONS DRESSED IN SHORTS OR WEARING FLIP FLOPS. JEANS WERE THE PROMINENT CASUAL WEAR.

THE FOOD WAS GOOD AS WAS THE SERVICE BUT FOR THE PRICE POINT THE RESTURANT LACKED IN ATMOSPHERE, THE TABLES WAS TOO SMALL FOR MY GUESTS AND THE NOISE LEVEL HAD MORE OF A CAFETERIA CACPHONY TO IT.
