Dan & Lise-Anne Serafini

In 2010 veteran restaurateurs Dan and Lise-Anne Serafini who created the crowd-pleasing “East Side Marios” in Aventura and the popular “Big Tomato Grill” in Pembroke Pines were looking to introduce a unique fine dinning establishment that people would love to enjoy and share with family and friends. When Giorgio’s Grill, formerly Joe Sonken’s Gold Coast Restaurant became available they took it over and transformed it into GG’s Waterfront Bar and Grill. Their passion for creating exceptional food and dining experiences over 30 years is the driving force behind the evolution of this chef centric high-energy concept. The couple’s complete make-over of the interior and exterior and the addition of a fresh prep kitchen with a locally sourced menu has been embraced by patrons and restaurant critics. The Serafinis aim to offer an inviting atmosphere and exceptional customer service that makes every guest feel special.

As a result GG’s has become a must do for visitors and locals emerging as a stand out restaurant that has raised the bar in the South Florida dining scene.



About Us

Welcome to a waterfront dining experience like no other!

At GG’s you’ll enjoy an amazing selection of locally sourced fish, fresh seafood, lobster and stone crabs, raw bar specialties, salads, sandwiches 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 20 miles from Miami. Overlooking the Intracoastal waterway, this is a fabulous way to enjoy beautiful waterfront views as world class luxury yachts cruise by your table. Every afternoon patrons gather to enjoy cocktails and watch magnificent sunsets while snapping photos as the sky changes color from blue to yellow and orange then ending in a burst of red!

Upon entering GG’s you know you are truly someplace special. The modern interior is elegant, yet casual and comfortable. It’s filled with original art, gas lamps, and appointed with tables for 2 to 6 people and an array of custom designed booths for sumptuous dining. The main room lets you see all the activity in our large, bustling open kitchen and the activity at GG’s raw bar as chefs prepare your meal. You may dine al fresco on the covered dockside promenade or relax and have a cocktail, appetizers or a meal in our waterfront patio lounge or main bar. GG’s Waterfront Bar & Grill is a Hollywood Icon – in the 50’s and 60’s it was the famous Rat Pack hangout of Frank Sinatra and his buddies. Now you can enjoy our legendary waterfront and views too!

Lunch and dinner are served every day of the year. On Sunday the restaurant features brunch from 11 am to 3 pm, and later in the day a Sunset Party on the patio with live music from 5 pm. GG’s proudly presents a Wine Spectator Award Winning Wine list with more than 125 different wines and champagnes in a carefully curated collection from around the world to pair with the flavors of the cuisine. A private banquet room is a popular venue available for meetings, luncheons, parties, events, wedding receptions and celebrations.

We look forward to welcoming you to GG’s Bar and Grill.
