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 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! The interior is elegant, yet casual and comfortable.

Everything about dinner was nice. We had the cioppino and the diver scallops, which I loved. The view was lovely and the staff was very kind. The day we were headed home we decided to stop in for lunch based on our dinner experience. What a mistake. The place was not busy but we might as well have been invisible. I ordered the grilled veggie sandwich. The vegetables were cut so thick that there was no way you could even take a bite out it, and they were underdone to the point of being raw. Tiny schmear of goat cheese, so I basically got some veg and bread for $11. Husband had mahi tacos which were bland - for 12 bucks they should have been memorable.

Where to start ... Felt totally rushed by this waiter .
We were a party of 6
He was so abrupt
After our meal plates were removed I kid you not within 5 seconds the desert menus were stuffed in our face ! He didn't say can I give you a minute would you care for desert .
I can honestly say the worst service we have recieved in Miami .
Another thing we ordered the surf & Turf priced $48.00 on menu when bill arrived they charged $55.00 absolutely dishonest shocking behavior .
Needless to say we will not return .
They also add the tip on which I think contributed to the bad service .
For our bill this was $42.00 for bad service .
Totally unacceptable .
Mind you food not too bad but does not compensate for appalling service and made to feel that they wanted the table back pronto .

Nothing lump about their jumbo lump crab cake appetizer. The taste was good. Seafood soup was excellent. My medium filet was scorched to a crispy well done. No juices left in it. Looked like it was flattened to a pancake on a Forman grill. I notified them and the manager on Tuesday did comp us a dessert. Saved them one star on the rating. Wife's sea bass was great. Key lime pie was just ok. Definitely store bought. Beautiful setting for dinner on the water. Prices I thought were reasonable but the overall food could use some improvement from the kitchen staff. Service is a little slow but extremely polite.
