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!

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.

We sat on the deck and had the most amazing waiter. Mateo is the epitome of service, personality and kindness rolled into one. He made wonderful recommendations and we loved his exuberance when we decided what to order.

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,

GG’s is a beautiful water front Resturant with amazing food. We had a bit of a wait to get our entree but we did have appetizers to distract us. This is a true fresh seafood Resturant with a hint of seafoody smell in the air, nonetheless our food was fresh and delicious.

GG’s always has the best service and food. I go there often especially for special occasions and it never disappoints. The servers are so attentive and the menu has something for everyone. Highly recommend! The appetizers , main courses and desserts are not the usual you find at most establishments. Prices are reasonable for the quality and atmosphere.

We've been here before, but this trip was not as good as my memory was. Wife and I split the seafood tower, and I have to say it was very meh. Oh sure, it was tasty enough. But for $65, an appetizer (1/2 small lobster, 4 oysters, 4 clams, tuna poke, 2 shrimp, and a couple of crab claws) better knock my socks off. Daughter did rave about the beef carpaccio though. Fair play on that one.

Service was good, and the bread was delightful.

As I stated, this was not our first visit, and we will come back next time in town and try a warm dinner item next time. It could also be we were a bit jaded after being soaked for every last nickel and dime by a local resort. Perhaps, that has tainted my judgement. I hope so.

I STILL recommend because this trip wasn't horrible, and my memory still likes the first trip.

i tried the $25 crave menu and to try what was new to me, i had the watermelon salad, which had a few microgreens that i found tasted like fertilizer, and for a main course i had the maitake mushroom entree. that was fantastic. the cohocolate bomb dessert was also first rate.

I was wondering why in the last year the food went from good to great. Well, while we were there, I saw my favorite chef, Russ, who started working there a year and a half ago. He has definitely brought a whole new culinary experience to this wonderful place.

Sat outside and a very enjoyable lunch with friends. I had the fish tacos and my friends had the fish sandwich. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the service was excellent. Nothing beats the view on the water, the food, and the service. Consistent every time.

The food was not good at all. Ordered the watermelon feta salad. It came with no feta or dressing. My risotto was greasy not creamy. The fish soup did not have the shellfish like on the menu. Substituted with a white fish. My second drink was all crushed ice could not drink it. This place is make believe fine dining

GG's is THE spot for high end dining with outdoor option in Hollywood Florida. They offer beautiful view of inlet with scenic skylines and boats. The food has always proven to be consistently very good (excellent) with very attentive service. If you are including a higher end meal on your vacation, given all the casual options in Hollywood Florida, GG's is the spot to raise the bar on your dining experience. Smart casual dress is recommended, as you will be in a more sophisticated environment, but not overly formal, still feels causal but definately a trusted higher end experience, especially for important date, birthday or anniversary celebration. Cannot go wrong.
