What a view! Hope you like it enough to eat very sub par food at regular dining prices. My Mother and I ordered twin lobster tail dinner and Chilean sea bass dinner which were both barely edible. The sea bass entree was in the mid $20's and the fish was very questionable and swimming in vegetable oil, the risotto was... More

Went here with a large group of 24 friends. We were stuffed in a small room practically seated on top of each other. Several people complained about their meals....small portions or bland taste. Service,one waiter,was exceptional. I thought they should have had at least two for 24 people. We have been here before and we treated much better.....about a year... More

We just finished eating outside, cold beer, warm pretzel and lobster wrap. Sun is shining, beach across the street, great waitress! Wraps, salads outside; more extensive menu like burgers upstairs.

Never had a bas meal there. Can't wait to go again. Have been there also for birthday parties and they really go out of their way to make sure all goes well.

We have been there a couple of times trying to give it another shot. However the last time is our last. The staff was inattentive and the food is average. You are paying for the location and the view which looks over the public beach.

Gulf View Grill service, food, drinks & atmosphere were all outstanding. Food was delicious, freshly prepared and served by wonderful and knowledgeable wait staff. Views from the second floor are wonderful at sunsets.

Five of us got immediate seating and had better than usual beach food. Great seafood dishes. My order got lost and I only got a baked spud while everyone else got to enjoy their dinners. Good when it arrived. Fairly upscale and worth a try if you are in the area.

Visited Gulf View Grill with a friend recently. We sat outside in the shade with an amazing view of the Gulf of Mexico on a sunny day. We both ordered luncheon salads and they were both a real treat, one with spinach and scallops, the other with crab, spring greens, and mangoes. (We always share.) A light pound cake on... More

This is a popular, crowded and noisy atmosphere. Downstairs, there is an outside bar which is very raucous. The food was plentiful and well prepared. There is a lovely banquet room suitable for weddings and such celebrations. We thought it was a bit expensive and the portions are very large especially for older people.

Went at lunch and had a light lunch. So impressed that we went back for dinner. The waiter was entertaining and provided good service. The food was well prepared and portions generous. Entranced by the sunset over the Gulf!
