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!

Super pour happy Hours mais le brunch du dimanche trop cher pour çe qui est servi.
Sommes amateurs d'agneau et vraiment pas à la hauteur et peu de choix pour le prix même si verre de champagne compris ,de plus c'était le 60 ans de mon mari et je l'ai mentionner et aucune attention n'as été apporter !
Vraiment Déçu !
Mais certain que nous y retournerons pour happy Hours

We have eaten here many, many times over the years and have never had a bad experience. Unfortunately, this evening because the weather had cooled somewhat we chose to eat inside. I must say the staff was very gracious and accommodating given that we were over 20 minutes late (although we called) and had originally requested a table outside only to change. Likewise as always, the food was very good although, as always, somewhat pricey. Also, because we dined earlier than we usually would, at 5:45 PM, I was under the obviously mistaken impression that “happy hour” was available at tables in the dining room as well as at the bar. This too, was a minor annoyance. The major problem we had with GG’s this past Friday evening was, simply put, the noise; there was no way anyone of us for could hear another person no matter how close s/he was sitting. This was compounded by the table, which was a rectangle but there was no way to have two chairs on each long side so the two people sitting at either end of the table could hear almost nothing. The lesson learned is to request a seat outside and wear a sweater or coat rather than subject ourselves to the extreme noise which we had on Friday evening. To be candid, the noise was so bad that it’s significantly detracted from the enjoyment of the evening while everything else was pretty much top notch. Dr. Steve Goldman

Perfect night to watch the sunset and feel warm ocean breeze. Great food all the way around: from the salads, the filet and shrimp, cocktails and dessert. This is our 2nd time to GGs and it will be a stop each time we come to Ft. Lauderdale

We went through the menu course by course, raw bar was fresh and flavorful, Elote & Beef Carpaccio was the best I’ve tasted, shrimp and scallop risotto was the perfect portion, great size scallops, seared to perfection, and the double thick lamb was a perfect medium rare. View was fantastic & service was spectacular.

GG,s was nothing but excellence. On a very busy day the staff work as a team to a make sure every customer service was at best. I had to mention the floor one of the managers Andrew who was helping everyone. He found that it was my wedding anniversary also besides Valentines day and he shared a champagne toast for me and my wife. That is an amazing story and memory picture for us.
I recommend GG,s to anyone searching for excellent seafood and superior service. Outstanding Dinner. ❤️❤️

Our first time visit to GG’s and our four meals were EXCELLENT. Raw oyster choices were many and my jumbo shrimp cocktail on ice was one of the best ever. My husband’s rib eye was grilled and seasoned to perfection and my twin broiled lobster tails were sweet and succulent. Our family also enjoyed the seafood pasta with wide tagliatelle noodles, while another great choice was the seafood risotto. Key lime pie and Irish coffees were great endings. We all had one major complaint - our inside dining room was so dark that we could barely see the menu or see our meals. GG’s turn up the lights a bit at sunset!!! MUCH TOO DARK!!!

We enjoyed spending our anniversary at GGs. The food was outstanding. But what made it more memorable was the fact that Ben made our night very special. He acknowledged our anniversary With a complimentary drink and dessert. Thank you Ben.
So grateful.

While the sunset and the service was great, the food was pretty bland. They brought hummus with the bread - great idea - but it really needed more garlic. Cauliflower appetizer was ok, but again was bland. We both had the grouper which was cooked correctly, temperature wise, but had little taste.
Overall, because of the good service and location, it was just ok. Sunsets are free.

Food and service were amazing but was placed indoors next to a door that opened to the deck. It created a wind tunnel that blew our menus away each time the door was opened.
