Description: 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 Bar & Grill, formerly Giorgio’s Grill 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!

“Nice view, average food, overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

had a party of 8 for dinner here. The service was rather slow. The servers we had were not trained well. Leaned over diners to put plates down rather than walking around each person with their plates. knocked over water and wine glasses on 3 different occassions. A few of the fish dishes were overcooked and 2 filet mignon had to be sent back because they were both raw (ordered med rare and med) all veg side dishes were cold. For these prices, the food should at least be cooked properly and the service staff should be properly trained. I would not reccomend this place.

“Good food, beware of manipulation of tips”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

I came here during a business trip with a couple of colleagues and had oysters and the sea bass. Service and food were excellent, and I believe that top quality ingredients, good preparation and a nice setting grant a premium price.

What I do NOT EVER find acceptable is when the tip amount is manipulated upwards, even by a bit. Therefore, what could have been a very good or excellent rating comes out average (with luck). What a shame!

“Fabulous sunsets on the Inter coastal waterway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Away from the maddening crowd of Miami and South beach. This isolated and seemingly old style Florida eatery,with friendly service, serves big fisted icy drinks and honest and fresh seafare, well prepared and at reasonable prices, especially compared to those in South beach.

Real relaxed, real Florida and breath taking view from porch seating, especially enjoyable by those from distant lands to the North, away from smog and grayness, nestled with real swaying palm trees, passing boats, beautiful waters, and shimmering sunshine. Look into her eyes and enjoy, sip to good health.
