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!

Great food, service and ambience. Love the open air dining experience! Dined here last year while on vacation and the experience was even better this time. Highly recommend!

My contact with GG's started when they called me the afternoon of my reservation to inquire if I wanted to sit inside or outside ... that is more than traditional customer service. The menu had enough selections that we could not order everything we wanted to try.
The waterside view of the sunset was extraordinary as was the attention paid to us by the wait staff. I would highly recommend this establishment to others and will dine there again myself.

This was our best dining experience all week. The service and food were spot on. Lise Ann is a true gem of a server. My husband and I are both in the restaurant industry so we tend to be a little critical and we could not find anything to complain about. Great job!

A disappointment. Food was below average. $268.00 for four people and we all said the same thing after we ate. Below average.

Our server was too busy and went a bit MIA. our calamari was overly fried and did not have enough meat. But the ambiance, fish tacos, and salad were great.

The servers were very kind but the food was horrible. Even we didn’t eat half of our plates and shared how inedible it was, we still received the full bill and no follow up.

This is the 2nd time we have taken friends to GG’s and had a disappointing experience. There are too many good restaurants in Ft. Lauderdale for me to keep trying this one.

The food was delicious. We had a little mishap with one course but it was handled professionally and didn’t interfere with the rest of our dining experience. The octopus was cooked perfectly which is hard to find. And rare Ahi Tuna was seared perfectly so only the pieces were still actually rare. Our server had a wonderful personality and made our dinning experience great. Will definitely come back again.

The food was good although the second order of Pow Pow shrimp wasn’t as good as the first. We had a reservation for the last booking, 10:45pm & was told we needed to get our order in by 11pm before the kitchen closed. That was fine. Our waiter did not seem happy to serve us and barely checked on us versus the table next to us where there was a waiter conversation going with them every second. Also, he didn’t ask me if I wanted another drink until all my food was done. We also asked if we could have a piece of cake with happy birthday on it for the birthday guest and we never received it after we were told yes.

My husband and I did enjoy the meal - delicious food! The two main drawbacks are the much too loud disco/jazz/whatever type of music - which gave a very nice restaurant a nightclub feel - totally unnecessary; and, the too dim lighting. Nearly half the tables inside pulled out their phones and used the flashlight to read the menu. Wait staff was very pleasant!

Our dinner and service were okay. Thought it was little overpriced for what we received, especially our drinks from the bar. My husband and I both ordered Bacardi and Coke (that cost $12.00 a piece) and it tasted like it was only Coke and no Bacardi.
Even though it was not crowded (Thursday evening @ 6pm) felt rushed to hurry up and eat. It was a lovely view just wish we had the time to enjoy it. Would have liked to order another drink but didn't want to pay $12. for a Coke.

My salmon wasn’t cooked on the inside..... the manager asked me how I ordered it cooked, I told him no one asked me how I wanted it but I assumed it would at least be cooked...... my girlfriends seafood pasta was salty and fair at best. The appetizers were mediocre and expensive which I wouldn’t care about if they were good , which they were not. I ended up not having an entree and the whole experience was at best, one star. Rip off totally. Best thing was my Tito’s on the rocks. At least they couldn’t screw that up..... so many better restaurants, avoid this one

Our waitress was very accommodating and kept checking up on us constantly which is very rare to find these days. The food was FANTASTIC, we were just a little upset we weren't able to get a table outdoors but even so; the ambiance inside was very nice.

This restaurant is absolutely heavenly! My family went for our mom's 80th birthday. The King Crab Legs
I ordered were the best I’ve ever had. They were fresh and most important, NOT salty. Our waiter (Raul... I believe, sorry I may have forgotten his name) was really professional, polite and very attentive to our table. The roasted brussel sprouts were also very tasty, sweet and not soggy. The chocolate dessert was incredible. The only thing I can say is I wish I had gone there sooner. Can't wait to go back!! Hopefully soon.


Thank you,
