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!

REALLY Would need to have regular fried scrimp, especially parents (mother). she didn't eat anything other then the appetizer with the sweet on that scrimp. Now that is great! Please consider the FRIED SCRIMP so I can come more with mother.

Nice place. Beautiful sunset view. Great happy hour menu. We ordered from Lunch Menu, the food quality could improve. Service was good. Overall a pleasant experience. Neighborhood place, try it if you’re in the area. We drove from South Beach, not worth the drive.

Had a great lunch here at GG's Waterfront Bar & Grill. We were able to sit outside with a great view of the intercoastal. Our server was pleasant and didn't rush us. We ordered the Mahi Mahi sandwich and Fish Tacos. Both were presented nicely, hot, fresh. I would definitely recommend both of these dishes. You have to valet park at lunch, $4. Inside of the restaurant had a great vibe to it. Very clean and would be a place that I would come back to dine inside for dinner or have a drink at the bar. Thank you GG's for a great lunch experience.

Reservations were for a birthday celebration. Seated and served quickly. Nice view of the canal. Free glasses of champagne and a cute little cake were provided for the birthday. Food was delicious. Had to wait quite a while for the check as our waiter ended up serving a large group and couldn’t get back to us.

We sat outside right before sunset and the view was fantastic. The Cioppino was some of the best I’ve ever had.

The restaurant has a beautiful water view. Our first server was not very good, took 35 min to bring out oysters and didn’t even know if they had come out yet, but we ended up getting a different server which changed the dinner around. The food was amazing!

My friend and I went for the Sunday Brunch for my birthday. The selection was pretty good. However I have been to better brunches. They had an omelet station, and the the regular, breakfast foods such as eggs, sausages (that didn't look cooked), bacon, waffles and French toast. There was a seafood station with shrimp, oysters, hummus etc. They get very busy after noon. Our waiter was very good and gave a complimentary champagne. The brunch only came with one drink.

Two people were seated next to us on patio right when our food was delivered. They chain smoked the entire time, didn’t even order food. You should make your patio seating non-smoking as it is partially enclosed with minimal air flow. The smelled gave one person in our party a severe headache. View, food, and service were amazing but that smoke definetly impacted our night.

GG’s Never disappoints! The food is always consistently good as well as the cocktails, wine and service.
Sunday night is my favorite due to the live music, but don’t forget to make a reservation because it gets busy ! Keep it GG’s, and I will always return.

The view of the water is relaxing and the service very good. My husband had a ribeye special that was slightly undercooked, but very tasty. I had cioppino that was good but a little messy to eat as the lobster claw was not cracked. The coconut flan and key lime pie were both excellent.

Blackened mahi mahi should be blackened - wasn't. Seared Ahi Tuna should be seared on the outside, and raw inside. It was cooked all the way through. Nice location, needs a more accurate chef.

Appetizers seem to be getting pricey ... to the point our party skipped...

I have had the Risotto before and it was MUCH better in the past. I encouraged one in our party to order the Risotto based on my previous experience (I ordered it too) but was disappointed... it tasted oily or greasy and the risotto was undercooked.
