We chose this restaurant for dinner based upon reviews on Trip Advisor. G&B is conveniently located at the base of Los Olas in Fort Lauderdale on the water. The atmosphere is great, staff could not be nicer or more helpful, the problem is the food. We were four for dinner, one person had the snapper sandwich. He said there was a lot of bread, lots of bread crumbs on the fish and very little taste of actual snapper. Another person ordered the stuffed shrimp at $23.00. There were very few shrimps but a great deal of stuffing. The fish special of the day was scallops at $24.00. There were 4 small scallops coated with bacon and jam, a very weird combination. This was served with a side of sweet potatoes. The plate was swimming in grease. The only person in our party who enjoyed the meal was the one who ordered mussels.
G&B should stick to just being an oyster bar, a fun place to sit and drink. The main courses are seriously lacking.

We first visited in 2012 and were delighted that it had not changedm including the bar staff.
We ate in the restaurant 3 nights and Monday & Tuesday is half price wine night.
Food is excellent and bar is busy early evening.
One drawback closes early around 10.00 pm.
Ideally located across from hotel so a great way to finish the evening or spend an entire evening.

Super dining experience on recent trip to Lauderdale/Miami area. In town for five nights, and spent two evenings dining at G&B. Ambiance is great, sitting just off the water by the marina.... An obvious great 'local haunt' as evidenced by the folks coming in and out of the place. Both food and service were outstanding. On the first visit we had the fantastic mussels appetizer, followed by local snapper and the lobster boil...all equally amazing. We decided to go back another evening for happy hour....got a dozen mouth-watering oysters for $14, along with the half-priced appetizer of conch fritters.
Truly recommend this outstanding venue....Not to be missed; and won't be sorry....

Great Fort Lauderdale option with fresh selection of oysters, cold beer & neat location on the Inter-coastal just a block from the beach. Prompt service & upscale decor add to the overall excellent experience. Full menu is available with good wine selection. Not cheep, but worth a try.
