I had my Mother's 90th birthday party at the Gulfview Grill this week. Frank helped us plan a wonderful party and everything went very well. The food was good and the serve was excellent. The banquet room is decorated in a festive style. I would recommend the restaurant to everyone.

Dinner for 7 at 5pm is hard to get a reservation during the high season in Florida. Great find is the Gulfview Grill in Englewood, Florida. We asked for a table upstairs and we all had a great view to the water and the sunset!!! Ask for nightly drink specials...if available, try the sangria, refreshing and tasty, and for $5.50,... More

2-14-16. We had reservations for Valentine's Day. Having made the reservation 10 days before, I could not remember for certain if the reservation was for 7:00 or 7:30 p.m. I began calling the restaurant at 5:00 p.m. I called 15 times. All calls immediately went to a message that "all lines are busy", with no option to leave a message.... More

My friend and I had a delicious spinach salad with grilled scallops. Really enjoyed it! A nice surprise was at he chocolate swirl bread served with it. Yummy! The waitress was pretty nice, but didn't keep my water glass filled.

This was our favorite restaurant, a place we took visiting guests and went there on special occasions so I took my wife there on Valentine's Day. The only complaint I have had in the past is that there was a lack of parking. I was surprised to find one that couldn't have been better if I had reserved it. Our... More

Went to celebrate friends birthdays. The lunch hostess had a bad attitude, insisting that we needed reservations as it is "season". We are locals and understand how "season works, at 3:30 in the afternoon the place was basically empty. We had drinks and ordered an appetizer, crab stuffed mushrooms. The mushrooms were basically just stuffing- no crab. We paid for... More

We had 7:30 reservations for Valentines Day. We arrived early and checked in with the hostess and told her we would be back at our reservation time. The restaurant was very busy. We checked in with the hostess again at 7:20 and she told us she had removed us from the reservation list, but she would add us again. We... More

The Gulf View Grill has good points, and not so good. GOOD: They do take reservations, and no long wait with a reservation. Service is VERY Good. Most entrees are excellent. Liquor prices are reasonable. BAD: Noisy, to the point where everyone is almost shouting to be heard across the table. Entree prices are a little high, and AVOID the... More
