Came here over lunch. This place is awesome. Best group sandwich of my life. Service and view 5 stars. Great place to spend afternoon or evening. Relaxing and a great crowd.

We make a point to visit The Gulf every time we travel to Orange Beach. The food shack(s) offer a small, but nice selection of seafood, sandwiches, and snacks. The bartenders mix a mean cocktail.

I wasn't aware of any tv's but might have been one at the bar. We always sit either at a table or couch on the beach! You must go and check it out! We love it!

Can't really say at night. I've only been during the day when the sun was shining. I would image at night it wouldn't be bad at all.
