Nice restaurant with view and good service. Food was just ok not nearly worth the price. Had two better meals at small local restaurants at a 1/3 of the price. Willing to pay but need above average food.

We had a lovely afternoon with friends & customers. The view was beautiful. We had a very warm greeting and very good service. It was a little too warm after an hour or so, and our waitress offered to move us inside. They cleaned everything up and re-seated us. Classy place -- which I would have found about GGs before this. Would definitely go again !!

Olena our waitress was great. I loved that the managers walked around and checked on the tables. They even gave my mom and the table limoncello dessert shots for her birthday. We will definitely be back. The food was great, they had a “Happy Birthday” sign on the table as well, which made it feel special :-)

Amazing experience at GG’s! I called ahead with a special request and the entire staff came through with a great surprise for my girlfriend’ birthday. The manager was waiting for us at the hostess station and checked with us several times during the meal. The food was amazing and cooked perfectly. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu, including the specials and helped with girlfriend to choose a memorable dish for her. We’ll definitely be back soon!

I always enjoy going to GG's for special events. The food is excellent. As I have noted before, I must confess feeling nickeled and dimed paying for the mandatory valet parking (there is no street parking nearby) when I am about to pay $200+ for dinner but it doesn't prevent me from coming back. I like sitting in the outdoor area to watch the boats glide by. However, if you are going to do that, you might want to make your reservation for just before sunset as the sun shines directly onto the outdoor area and it can get a bit warm when that happens. The restaurant does have shades that they can lower but that obscures the view.

Our hostess was very accommodating where seating was concerned; we had a nice 2-person table by the water instead of near the bar/main entrance (where we were originally going to be seated). Our server was very nice and engaged in polite conversation, beyond what we’d like to drink/eat. The weather was great and the ambiance was perfect. Love a night out at GG’s. We will definitely be back. Their new/updated menu offer a lot of nice selections. I recommend the Frosé as a starting beverage, and the Blue Point oysters as an appetizer - they were excellent.

Great dining experience as a family dinner. Kid friendly with a menu they will like and a wine and food menu that will please adults alike. Our best meal on this vacation so far. Everything was fresh, tasty and on par. Amazing seafood, cheap parking ;), exceptional deserts and great service. Give this place a try for sure, you won’t regret it!!!!!

Repeat visit. the selection of seafood is great. We had a fantastic waiter, knew the menu, checked on us frequently. The seafood tower not great - the crabs were still frozen, but the other contents good. the fish dishes - we ordered yellowtail, salmon, swordfish, and ahi tuna entrees - all great fish preparation and the sides were very tasty as well. We had a great time celebrating a birthday

Wonderful lunch.. met up with two cousins (older & younger) and the food met all necessary criteria for our group of four women.,
We had chose a table by the window ( indoors, too hot outside) and it was just lovely.
Our waitress ( name escapes me) was one of those servers who was attentive, knowledgeable on menu and
a crowd pleaser.
I will definitely be back on my next trip to South Florida.

We went there specifically for the stone crabs and we were told that they were out of season. Meanwhile, other restaurants had them in abundance. The portion of my other choice of entrée was so small and extremely expensive, that we left there and had to go somewhere else to get a bite to eat. Usually we love this place and recommend it to all our friends. This time not so much. Will be taking a break from here for a while.

Wonderful atmosphere, we sat outside right next to the water with a beautiful view of the bay. There were however a few mosquitoes, so wear repellant if you are planning to eat outside in the summer. Excellent bread service and dessert (we had the key lime pie which was phenomenal and served with a berry coulis). Main course (we both ordered seafood) left a little to desired. A little overpriced but we would go back for the pie : )

This was now my second time at this restaurant, and I do not think that I will be back a third time. I will start by saying that I came here for a steak, and that might not have been the best idea. Both times I have come here, my filet was good, but not exactly worth the money. I have been to plenty of steakhouses and I have had better steak for cheaper. The sides are great, the service is amazing, and the location could not be better. If you are only going here for seafood, I think you will be fine. For steaks, go somewhere else.

Beautiful sunset view. Had a fantastic server who recommended the swordfish when I asked about mahi-mahi not being on the menu. Swordfish and it’s accoutrements were delicious. Great choice. Great wine. Very nice experience.
