Seafood
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!

The best option near the Hollywood boardwalk. Really good food, and a reasonable and varied wine list. We sat outside on a lovely evening; enjoyed the ahi tuna tostada app (😀), garden salad (ok), and the grouper (😀). Our only complaint was the constant Euro-beat music, which got old quickly. How about some jazz, Latin fusion? But definitely go. Better value than Billy’s Stone Crab next door.

We have passed by many times and decided to try it for lunch. Other than the service we received it was just average and way overpriced. Sadly will not return.

We go to this restaurant on special occasions such as anniversaries, birthdays, etc. We go for brunch and love the view and the variety of food. The risotto was fabulous this time. I did miss the blintz , my personal favorite. The price is a little steep but for once or twice a year we can splurge.

Great restaurant. We always try to make a trip here when we are in town. Food and service is always excellent. It is a very busy place with a noisy atmosphere inside. Outside by the water is more quiet and intimate. Highly recommend!

The calamari was excellent, the chef's soup was quite enjoyable the bread was good, the entrees were adequate though not like the calamari (not memorable) the desert was outstanding (decadent) the service was polite though extremely disorganized which responsibility rest with management and the bathrooms were utterly disgusting. The valet service was well run, we are locals so maybe we might enjoy your restaurant a bit more out of season but why should that be the case.

We wanted to eat good fish, so we decided to have dinner at this restaurant. The fish as usual was delicious though expensive. We sat outside, right by the water, which was great! The service, however, was not good! There were a couple of large groups near us and the staff seemed more preoccupied with them than with us.

I was not impressed with GGs. The service was very good but the ambience/seating, specially outside was less than desirable. I wore a pair of 1k YSL shoes and my heel got stuck in the wood deck flooring due to gaps in the floor. Also, our initial seat was literally on the EDGE of the outside deck, which has no safeguard other than 2 ropes and is clearly unsafe. There were multiple patrons there with their pets. The couple close to us, had their dog on a leash but he kept coming under our dinner table. Overall, this establishment did not meet my expectations on what I thought was going to be a similar scale comparison to Shooters Waterfront.

We had two servers, one excellent (Oscar) and a woman, not excellent. She was forgetful and short with us. Stone crabs were on the small side for the largest they have and very expensive. Fish was good. Appetizers were small. Go to Billy's next door.

We spent our Christmas week at the Marriott on Hollywood Beach and our concierge suggested GG’s. We sat outside and enjoyed both great service as well as very excellent and tasty food.

We enjoyed our experience soo much we came back a second night and we were recognized for our patronage and received royal service.

Next time we are back in the area we will definitely dine at GG’s!

Went for lunch. Ordered wonderful striper presented well and delicious. Also ordered one stone crab claw (never had before). Service assistant brought and served us 3; before we could even point this out to the waitress, she rushed over to the table, took the plate and removed 2 onto a napkin and and ran off the the kitchen. Later she apologized and said gee, that was awkward. Occasionally, a service person has tried to serve the wrong order and it's been pointed out before the plate is down, but I've never had food served and then snatched off a plate before. We had no idea what stone crabs were, but watch out for Snatchers! The experience was awkward for the diners!

Had reservations for my girlfriends birthday outside on the deck, unfortunately it rained during the day and I don’t think they had expected people to want to sit outside. It was a beautiful night after the rain so we took a chance, it was worth it. A little slow on service, possibly because they weren’t expecting people to want to sit out there so I’ll give them a pass on that, otherwise food was great. Alaskan King Crab legs and Braised Short Ribs were excellent, recommend this place for dinner and especially Happy Hour at the outside bar.
