We arrived at the Gulf for a late night dinner. The atmosphere is the selling point of this place. The food is pretty good, and the service is average, but the views and vibes of this place is what will keep me coming back.

My dad and I love visiting here. We try to go for lunch at least once a trip. We split a burger and the grouper sandwich and an order of fries. Everything here is so good! And the views are awesome.

A perfect place to sit outside. I thought it was a little pricey. Especially when you had to wait in line to order.All the people working there were very nice.

Were told there were two different counters to order food, one mostly meat, the other mostly seafood, including whole lobster and crab legs, We wanted seafood, so checked the menu out there first, but decided to walk the short distance to the other one, and were happy we did!! In addition to chicken and burgers, they also had fried grouper... More

Love going to the Gulf every time I go to the beach. Seating at your table watching the Pass is a perfect place to go for lunch.

Food was good. Limited options. Only have grilled cheese option for kids. Fries were good. Kids liked the lemonade. Great atmosphere. Right on the water with good views. Clean.

Very different kind of place. Great views of the waterway and lots of seating. Not a dress up type place so wear flip flops because of the sand in areas. Give it a shot. You will like it.

My husband and I ate at The Gulf this past weekend. It's a unique place with the use of cargo boxes. You place your order outside a window, receive a number and seat yourself. There are free refills on your drinks. Our food came out quickly however the portion size was very small for the price we paid. We were... More

We stopped here on our way out of the area for a late lunch. My daughter highly recommended it and it lived up to the hype! My niece and had the grouper sandwich and we both loved it. I had the Bloody Mary which was excellent. My husband enjoyed his lamb gyro and my son chomped down his wonderful burger.... More

This is a fun, must go, tourist spot that serves tasty fast food in an outdoor eating space. The restaurant is made from seagoing containers. Service is fast and friendly. The bloody Mary's are made with infused vodka and are incredibly tasty. The house sangria is also a must for adult beverages. This was our second visit and certainly won't... More
