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.

Started with peanut colada martinis and for appetizers we had the power power in the vocal bruschetta and the beef carpaccio. All were excellent. Main meal was 2 orders of stone crabs, ad NY strip steak. Everything was prepared to perfection . To top of a beautiful meal we had the lava cake with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Will return again z

On our first visit, we were so pleased. The service was outstanding, the food so delicious and the views of the Intracoastal at night - spectacular! It was my birthday and the wait staff accommodated my restricted dietary regimen with beautiful fruit dish just for me. Thank you, GG's for a fabulous night!

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.

We ordered 3 pound lobsters (had to advice them 2 days prior) which came with two sides. We also tried the salad with pear and pomegranets and the grilled octopus. Everything was delicious. With the appetizer and salad, we were not able to finish the lobster which we enjoyed the next night for dinner.

The service was a little slow, but since we were in no hurry we did not seem to mind too much.

GG's Waterfront Bar & Grill is definitely a place to go for a special occasion.

Ate here last year. Great experience. Last year great service and food. Very happy. Came back this year and bad experience. Service was again great by primary server. Her support staff weak. Ordered steak medium and fries well done. Steak came rare and fries came cold, greasy and limp. Sent fries back and where returned when meal almost done. Still bad. Support asked if we wanted bread, said yes, never delivered. Wife’s meal average with cold food on the plate. Server offered free dessert which we refused as we aren’t looking for free. Fully informed server, who didn’t seem empowered. So, one good experience and one bad. Beyond comprehension how restaurant could do this poor. This is a nice place. Hope the manager reads this and takes corrective action. This is an expensive place and should be better.
