Very disappointed! Our daughter highly recommended GGs for our Anniversary. Unfortunately very poor service spoiled the evening . We were there over 2 1/2 hours , our waiter was absent for the last 1 1/2 of that. A food runner & bussers were the only ones we could flag down for water , condiments , etc. We really wanted to try the Key Lime Pie & Bread Pudding our daughter raved about but got so frustrated at the lack of service that my husband finally went to the host station & asked for our bill. The restaurant, atmosphere and food were very nice , but we expect some type of service when paying $$$ as well as valet parking. And we almost tipped on the whole bill before noticing that 18% was added on. I guess there is no incentive to give good service when the tip is forced on the guests.

This is a very nice restaurant in an excellent location, but unfortunately the food is not good at all. Had a basic filet mignon, no salt or grilled flavor, the grouper was terrible, bland, dry, no effort in cooking these, we didn’t eat it. I have to say the service was outstanding but that’s it.

My husband and I visited GGs Waterfront in Hollywood in Feb. 2021 for a dinner date perfect to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Our reservations were for 5:30 so we could watch the sunset outside on a lovely Monday evening. We both had the salmon and it was cooked to perfection: moist, flaky, with a nice torched top to make it evenly crispy. The Bananas Fosters Bread Pudding ended the night on a sweet and rummy note. The service was prompt and friendly, and I'd highly recommend going during lunch or a week night when it's not super busy.

Our waiter was fantastic! Awesome and friendly! But the rest of the experience was terrible! my lobster smelled like ammonia which means it’s bad. And the price of mediocre food is outrageous! we have been there before and enjoyed it. Don’t understand this time. Never going back tho

The server we had barely spoke, we thought it was normal until we heard a different server at another table. The drink took way to long to come, we were seated very quickly upon arrival

Was a really nice experience. The waiter was super attentive and detailed oriented. He got really busy at one point, but it was nothing to be upset about. It was Valentine’s Day so it was expected to be busy. I am glad we went there and would definitely go back. The only thing was one of the crab legs was still over chilled. I can’t say it was frozen, but it lost a little flavor because of that. Otherwise the food was delicious. The seafood tower was really good, because it came with a good assortment for two people in terms of oysters, clams, shrimp, a tuna ceviche and I forgot what else was on the tower. Then my girlfriend and I split a yellow fin tuna whole fish and it did not disappoint!! The skin was nice and crispy and it retained the flavor of the juices inside. The meat wasn’t over cooked in the middle. For those who might not know the whole fish can have bones. Just be aware of that. I highly suggest it if you haven’t had the whole fish yet. Oh and I almost forgot the mimosas were delicious and if you have a party or special occasion you can get the bottle for 36$ with OJ and make your own mimosas through out the meal (definitely worth). So enjoy everyone!

It was an extremely windy day so the restaurant put protective plastic to break up the gusts.
All the employees did their best to accommodate us under the circumstances.

GG's is a "tourist trap" but a tourist trap you do not mind being caught in.

Even though this is a very busy machine of a restaurant, the waiters and staff are very friendly which was a pleasant surprise.

The restaurant itself is very modern, clean and exciting. There is a main dining room and there is also seating directly on the intercoastal. Both venues are worthwhile choosing.

The food is very good and the service is excellent. The deserts are also a cut above the ordinary. However, you pay a hefty price for these pleasures.

So if you don't mind, a loud, fast paced, exciting, expensive environment-GG"s is for you. But make your reservations waaaay in advance.

We wanted to enjoy the beautiful Florida weather and dine outside. This was the perfect place for that. The food was delicious and their Lemonade Sangria was something else. This is a great brunch place. The food and service were amazing! Looking forward to visiting again very soon.

Super location on the inner coastal with boats going by . Good food . However, we literally waited 20 minutes from sitting down before we could order a drink . Also could use a good cleaning top to bottom .Repair the bathroom faucets . Spruce up the run down parking lot .
Bottom line , poor management.
