My wife and I had lunch at the Gulfview Grill today and were very pleased with both the food and the service. My wife had 1/2 pound of the peel and eat shrimp and declared them delicious. I had the sautéed grouper and it was melt in your mouth good! My mojito was refreshing, although I am spoiled by my... More

Undeservedly popular. I'm never going back. Seafood, a specialty, is good. Service is awful - waiter had too many tables resulting in slow service. Reservations a must.

Nice dinner, fabulous service. The bartender was great! I had the mahi mahi and he had the pork chop. Mahi was average.. Should have asked for it to be blackened. He stated his purl was fantastic. Dessert was not home made but was still fairly good.

We arrived early evening and a band was playing on the level below where we were seated. The music was so loud, it vibrated the floor under our feet, and it was difficult to carry on a conversation at a normal voice level. The She Crab was so-so. Our meal was fine. There was a view of the beach across... More

Perfect place to watch the sunset with your favorite drinks, while enjoying the excellent performance from Verceal. Nice food upstairs and the downstairs bar, but it is a shame about the smokers, they want to smoke cigarettes or the stinky cigars no matter if there are kids around or you want to enjoy your food. Hey owners do something!!! We... More

We went for lunch and cannot wait to return for dinner with family from Texas. The view is lovely and the food is fantastic. The dinner menu looks like a real treat. I absolutely think you will have an enjoyable & tasty meal. The service is attentive and efficient. Enjoy!

Food was very good and prices were good. I had a salad with strawberries, blackberries, pecans, and chicken. My bf had the salmon that was on special. Both were great.
