GG's never disappoints! I love this restaurant. I ordered shrimp cocktail and the twin lobster tails. Incredible. My husband ordered the soup of the day and the shrimp and scallop risotto. Incredible. Our servers were knowledgeable and absolutely charming. We had an outside table and gazed out on the beautiful setting and watched the boats sailing by. Can't wait to go back again.

Another couple & my husband & I went to GG’s for dinner based upon the recommendation of the Concierge at the Aqualina Spa & resort. So glad we did. The setting overlooking the inter coastal waters is spectacular & very relaxing.

We all enjoyed our food. We started with oysters & very large stone crab. For dinner the ladies had seafood - I had swordfish & my friend had the crab legs. The men had steaks - my husband had the wagyu tomahawk ribeye. Wow that meat was amazing. Never go wrong with Wagyu beef.

The service was attentive.

I would definitely consider going back to GG’s if I was in the area & recommend you try it out. So glad we did.

I visited this restaurant for the first time on my birthday. To be honest I confused this place with another restaurant, so when I arrived I was totally confused, anyhow mistake well worth it. We had an awesome time! Everyone was friendly, the atmosphere was great, and the food was really good. Our waitress was the best. She overheard my sister mention that it was my birthday and she surprised me with a desert sampler. This was bonus for me because I love a waitress/waiter that is attentive.

Really good location in Hollywood right on the Intercostal. Food was tasting - spicy shrimp appetizer is a must try as is the Stone Crab. Service was excellent and a DJ playing great tunes throughout dinner. All in all a really nice evening.

They could not have been more gracious. I did not like what I had ordered and they very quickly, without any questions asked what I would like instead. This is the kind of service we expect but hardly ever get, even at the “best” restaurants. The entree they then brought me was as good as any strip steak I have ever had. We will definitely b going back soon. Our only hesitation is that parking, on a busy night, is difficult, and kind of dangerous. Many times we find ourselves waiting in the road to enter their parking area. They really need to do something about that. One could very easily be hit in the rear while idling to get into their lot.

Terrible service. They use a team approach, which means they ask you the same thing three times, or they don't show up at all. Had to find the wait staff three times, more water, another beer, we are ready to place our order. We won't be back. Too bad, the food was great.

Went for my sons 17th birthday lunch, there were five of us in total. We sat outside by the water, the view was great, watching all the boats going by. Service was outstanding, we were left to a leisurely lunch but someone was always in time to refill a glass or take a picture. We enjoyed the raw bar as well as some hot dishes and everything was fresh, well presented

Always my "go to" restaurant when in FLL which is quite often. Great ambiance and food.
Greeted by very pleasant hostess and pre-dinner cocktails with very pleasant bartender.
Waitress was not as stellar. Slow, screwed up the order, and never checked in with us.
Food is great as always. Just too bad poor table service made everything not consistently great.

We have chosen GG's for our anniversary and a birthday- both evenings out were a wonderful overall experience and just what we wanted for each event. Attentive and professional service, a quiet atmosphere so nice for conversation- outstanding food and a great wine list make GG's a definite must for an evening out. Thank you and keep up the tradition!

Me and my husband celebrated our anniversary here, it was the perfect dinner, I let them know it was our anniversary on the reservation and our table had a reserved seating card that read Happy Anniversary, our dessert also had happy anniversary written On the plate, everyone down to the hostess that greeted us and showed us to our table wished us a happy anniversary, our server was attentive and awesome, the ambiance was not quiet but not to noisy, the view of the water was spectacular, the wine was great, dinner was flavorful and delicious, I would highly recommend. Thank you GG's for making our anniversary night memorable.

Enjoyable relaxed atmosphere. Service was good.

Seafood pappardelle and seafood risotto were both FLAT. No taste.

Bread on the stale side

Maybe it was an off night or ordered wrong dishes because I have friends that think this place is good but for the prices definitely should have been much better.
