Beautiful place just not impressed with the food.
Great food. Sat outside on the dock as boats wen by very close. The chilled seafood plate was incredible!
First of all, my gf and I decided to come to GG’s due to the great reviews that it had on yelp. Even though, there was a lot of mixed reviews, we decided to give it a try anyways. Upon arrival, the hostess were great in accommodating my request to be seated outside on the dock by the water. Then our server showed up, who was like a lifeless corpse serving you. His reactions and suggestions were almost non-existent and dull, which was kinda strange but whatever that’s fine. Another thing I noticed that he always suggested the most expensive things on the menu, which I get it,
It’s a sales technique for a higher check, but to me that’s when you lose my trust in recommending anything to me. We ordered the shrimp appetizer that was tossed in a this sweet and spicy slaw. It was great and actually one of my favorite appetizers that I’ve ever had. But when it came to our entree’s, they were just AWFUL. My gf ordered the snapper fillet and I had the organic chicken breast. The snapper was literally tasteless, unflavored, lack of seasoning and flat out bland. The chicken was greasy, and again, no flavor, bland. Not to mention the fact that it’s not like you’re paying $10-20 for a meal. But when you’re paying upwards $35-$40 per meal and it taste that bad, it makes you never want to ever come back, because it’s just not worth it. I have no problem paying any amount of money for anything, but all I ask is, if I paying for it, I expect it to be good. My gf and I have eaten at many restaraunts throughout Florida and we both agreed that these 2 entree’s we got, was by far one worst. We won’t return nor recommend it. Eat elsewhere.
My friend and I had a most delicious lunch! The outdoor dining is perfect on a worm sunny day and our food was well prepared and presented...
Great choice for waterfront dining in Hollywood.
We had a wonderful lunch here. We sat waterfront and watched boats passing by as we dined on delectable menu items such as blackened mahi, lobster and caesar salad and chicken. Simply delectable. Beautiful ambiance inside and outside. Highly recommend. We will be back for sure!!
Waited an hour with a reservation. Food came out wrong, then waited another 30 minutes and got 1/2 of the crab legs we ordered yet we were charged the full price. Next time I’ll go back to Billy’s stone crab. Better value, better food.
Evening with our neighbors
Every person that we encountered was overly friendly - nice - awesome ! Our waiter was absolutely amazing. Food was fantastic. Love it.
Great seafood, great views, what's not to like?
Food is decent but not great. Very loud. Popular place
Visit this restaurant every time we are on vacation in the area. Love the food. Service can be ify, depending on where you are seated. We were seated at the back of the outdoor space. This has happened in prior years and it seems they are not concerned with turning over the table. 2 of us for dinner, no appetizers, took more than 2 hours. Other tables were in and out much more quickly.
My boyfriend and I have reach a rough patch in our relationship. I decided to make reservations, so that we could discuss our future plans. The atmosphere made it easier for us to communicate and effectively. Ever since our date night, my boyfriend and I have been doing a lot better in our relationship and we are looking forward to the great Valet parking team, the hostess, the waiter/waitress, and the great drinks and food again.
Very pricey for what you get. Service was very slow and waiter had to be waved down on various occasions . We could not reach our wine in the wine cooler and the only way to refill was to wave someone. View is very nice but food was not out of this world for the price. Overall the service stunk
Birthday party and brunch
I think the waiting service needs to improve . Our waiter did not check on us as much & we had to call for his attention a few times.
My girlfriend Shelene Fox loves GG’s and she wanted to do brunch there, so we did and it was amazing once again!
Our server, David, was amazing! Attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. Exceptional guest service. We are definitely going back!
Based on good reviews, I went to this waterfront restaurant in Hollywood off A1A for some good seafood and steak. The traffic is awful on A1A on Saturday, so don't go. It took 20 minutes to drive a mile. Insane. I made a reservation and was seated outside (without asking my preference) next to a loud group of drunk yahoos who ruined the entire ambience with their screeching laughter (I'm not exaggerating). The waiter barely checked on us. The food is way too expensive for what it is, particularly since they couldn't properly cook a steak medium! My steak was medium rare in the center. When I sent it back, it returned medium well/well done. Ruined. Ordinary bread. Just nothing special, particularly for $100 tab. Will NOT return.
Food was fantastic! Best mushroom soup and halibut ever! Noisy but fun atmosphere
Our waiter, Nelson, was so inattentive it was shameful. He provided the worst service we ever received at a restaurant. You can’t even call it service. The Wente Cab at $8 is delicious. The clams at $8 are fresh and presented nicely. The calamari is the best I’ve had in South Florida, also $8. We will NOT be ordering another lobster roll at $22. We essentially paid $22 for a hot dog roll and cold, soggy fries. They maybe put one tablespoon of lobster salad on the bread. We usually love Happy Hour at GG’s. The view is lovely. This day was a dud because no one took responsibility for our table. Every item was brought by a different waiter, and we were forever flagging down help for service.
Wanted outside - started offering us inside and then not offering open tables by water.
Rather loud for a date.
Food very good!
Service very average for the level of restaurant.
Excellent! Love GGs and go every time we are in FL
I do not eat at home due to my busy work schedule, i am constantly traveling and eat meals at all types of restaurants from hole in the walls to 5 star restaurants. I have been to gg’s twice in the past 2 years, and both times i was blown away by the delicious food. My boyfriend and i compared this meal to a recent four course meal we had at a restaurant within miles (that cost 3 times as much) and were just blown away by the amazing food here as well as the pricing for such quality food. I am unsure who the chef was the night here (feb 28) but it was unbelievable food, great wine pairings and amazing service. Will definetly use this restaurant for events, as well as personal dining going forward. Location and view is spectacular, beach is also right across the street. Valet is quick.
Sat on deck at waters edge and watched the sunset! Fantastic food!
What a lovely view! Waiters were astonishing food was delish!!!!!!!!!
Great place. Awesome food. My birthday dinner with my daughter. From New Jersey. Come to visit regularly. Love this place.
GG’s is a great place to dine. The ambiance, food and the level of fine dining and professionalism is above reproach. My family and I highly recommend this restaurant.
A perfect afternoon. Great service from the bartender, Michelle. Delicious Wente cab at only $8 per glass. Fabulous appetizers....fresh clams & calamari both delicious. Meatball sliders under cooked. Besides, we had ordered angus beef sliders. Lobster roll $22 on lunch menu was a bit skimpy, but excellent. Came w good fries. We highly r3commend the Happy Hour.
Good food , fair pricing and a nice setting.
Normally GG’s is 9/10 but Sunday was wY off the mark. First they started to take us to our reserved table and another party had unilaterally moved because they didn’t like the one they were given. Then they moved us to one that was unbearable for heat.
We had a hard time getting service and my medium rare striploin arrived well done and they other guests meals were lukewarm. While the manager brought a new dinner he did not utter one word of apology as I ate it after every other person was finished.
Everyone has an off nitebut I have never had one here before.
Espectacular el lugar , la comida deliciosa y el ambiente super , lo recomiendo 100 %
Over priced for what we got
I ordered seafood tower, the waitress brought the hot towels towards the beginning and they were cold. My husband ordered the special $99 steak. It took 20 minutes to get a plate, and steak sauce by then it was cold, so they took it back and heated up the same steak.
This was our fourth trip to GG's. Unfortunately, it was not our best experience. We ordered a bottle of Chardonnay and it was room temperature (they didn't have a chilled bottle so the waiter brought us a glass of ice ... clearly he is not a wine drinker). The lettuce in the Caesar salad was not crisp (it had obviously been dressed well in advance). The bisque was delicious! My husband and I were not finished with our salad and soup when the entrees arrived (and we don't eat slowly). My husband had the swordfish and I had the snapper. They were interesting and flavorful. We were staying at The Diplomat, and based on the comments we heard at the hotel that evening we'll give one of the hotel restaurants a try next time we're staying in Hollywood.
I would rate our dinner as just Ok. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful and the view of the inland water way was beautiful. The food was just average and the pour of the drinks we very skimpy for the price.
This is a great restaurant which ever way one looks at it. The food and service are on a par. Knowledgeable servers with well prepared food. What more?
Nice overall... food was good/ok, but would have expected more for the price point. View and atmosphere were excellent.
Had lunch on the patio and it was very nice. Upscale and waterfront. Service and food were great! Would definitely go back.
