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!

Ben was great! Food delish! Great place as usual! Ambulance wonderful!

Only one problem my bf mentioned parking lot was flooded so your car is being valet parked in salt water on high tide. Not good for high end cars. Pumps suggested

We were seated immediately for our reservation. The waiter finally came by and took our drink order. We ordered stone crabs for appetizer. He never brought any bread. I had to ask for it after the stone crabs. He never refilled our water glasses. After several times he came by without making eye contact and asking how things were I flagged him down and asked for water. He brought over the bottle, I asked him to leave it which he did. He said he was going to bring a chiller to keep it cold which he never did. The person that cleared tables came by and took the bottle when our glasses were empty and never refilled our waters. After finally getting break the same person that cleared tables passed by and took our break we were serving for dinner. For dinner I ordered the shrimp and scallop risotto which was good. My wife ordered the salmon medium well. The brought it and it was raw in the middle. My wife ate the ends because she was hungry and we had been there over an hour waiting. We asked for the manager and he took it off the bill but the salmon made my wife sick. She went to bathroom before we left and was stuck in bathroom most of the night ruining our plans. Date night ruined!!

Food is great. Had a table on the water which was nice but because it was near the bar and music, it was hard to talk.
Would return next time and choose another table.

The service was outstanding. Waiter explained the menu and specials very well. He was attentive, but not obtrusive. The food was delicious. The ambiance is a bit underwhelming, eclectic mix of styles. Not a great place for a romantic evening, but okay for a dinner out with friends/family.

Service was great, food was good but not exceptional for the price that it was. I was a little disappointed that there was no happy hour. Overall it was decent.

Overall it was a good experience. However our initial table was outside on the deck. I requested it but when we got to the very last table all the way in the back. It was too dark, and it took away from the dining experience. So we decided to dine inside. We were then seated right in front of the door to the deck. It was ok just a bit busy. Our waiter was ok but he did seem a bit distracted and forgot a few things. We had to ask for silverware to eat our desserts. The food was excellent though.

Friends and I were visiting from Washington state and decided to dine at GG's. What a great decision. The food was excellent and the service was top notch by every employee we interacted with. We tried stone crab for the first time and loved it. Oysters on the half shell, a couple bottles of Chablis, fabulous entrees and delicious affogato for dessert. All on a fabulous patio right on the intercostal waterway during sunset.

It’s a great location. The place is nice. It’s my third time there so I expected it to be good but I think we caught them on an off day. The fillet came out well done instead of medium and I had the mahi which was tasteless and mushy. It’s not an inexpensive place and I would have expected the server to ask why the meal wasn’t eaten. I’m not a complainer but I’m not sure I’ll go back.

We were sat immediately at a nice table in patio with pretty view. Service was very good. Had oysters to start which although fresh were just ok. Sea bass was a tough fish and the dish was pretty bland but the scallop and shrimp mushroom risotto was very tasty and a good portion. Overall, it was a nice evening.

Everything was great but the prices on the cocktails are a little to high. I understand you are in the water front but $80 dollars for 3 Mango Margaritas and 3 bourbon with ginger ale a little to high.

The location is amazing, on the water and in Hollywood beach. My servers were Maribelle and Phillip and they were amazing and fun to talk to. Paul the manager made us feel like vip and even brought over a delicious tray of desserts at the end of the meal. We had the best stone crabs and I would highly recommend this location!

GGS is located right on the Intercoastal and offers great food and drinks in a sophisticated atmosphere. The Alaskan crab legs are awesome, as well as the yellow snapper. The service is well on par

Warm welcome at reception desk and very good service from Troy.
Looks like there is a new management

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!
