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 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

This is my third time coming to this restaurant and I must say it's in my top 5 for brunch outing, dinner date or holiday celebration. I love the ambiance above all things and their menu is elite.

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.

The server was great, the food was okay. My date omelette was cold because both of our food was brought out together. Waiting on food took awhile, like 30 minutes.

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.

Horrible drink service and drinks were poorly made. Food was good but expecting much more based off price, reviews and ambience. Mandatory 18% service charge for a party of three was just enough to turn me off and write a sub average review

Great food and service. The waitress went above and beyond for our table. She found out it was my daughter's birthday and without us asking she made it special. Too bad I do not remember her name.

First time visit. There is indoor and outdoor seating on the inter-coastal waterway. We had reservations and were seated promptly. We would have preferred outdoor seating on our first evening of a long day's travel from a colder climate. That would have necessitated a wait and we were not up for that. Our table was adjacent the main doors to the outdoor seating and was non-sop viewing of every wait staff trip in and out. So, not a great atmosphere because of the seating. Many tables would have had good/great atmosphere. Our service very good although our waiter was a bit aloof. The food was very good. We both had fresh (we think) fish, grouper and sea bass. Prices were steep but expected. The avocado crab toast appetizer was just OK to us.

We would eat here again and hold out for a more choice table.
