Lunch

The restaurant was a neat place, a little pricey, but the food was good. We got popcorn shrimp, there was enough for 2, me and my 3 yo shared!! The service was a little slow, and they weren't busy, so I'd hate to know what it would be like busy. Give it a try!!

Hung out a couple of hours here. Business kind of slow, but it was mid day. The crab stuffed mushrooms were wonderful. They have a sauce that makes you want to lick the plate. The bartender was fun...she made sure we didn't make any wrong choices in our drink selection, which I appreciated. Will go back again.

This was an ok dish. Visited when in town for the Hangout Fest. Cheapest beer- I wouldn't drink it but it was good with the guys... The shrimp dish was ok. Bartender was nice. Who knows, may return again one day.

Gulf Island Grill was walking distance from our condo. The service was great and the food was outstanding. They had an incredible playlist going too!

I ate something call the gulf ya ya( it was a rice dish with shrimp, chicken, and sausage). Sooooo good, I'm sure it was loaded with calories! Well worth it! We sat on the patio and our server ( I can't remember his name) but he was awesome! Great food, great service, no wait time for a table!!

We really enjoyed this place so much that we ate here twice. I got the grouper and my boyfriend got shrimp. They were both very good. They have the best hush puppies and tarter sauce we've ever eat!

We all ordered different plates so we could try multiple things from Gulf Island Grill, and the food was definitely very tasty! Our server was very nice, however was very slow and we waited a little long for our drinks and to have our order taken. Overall we had a great time though, fun place with a nice atmosphere!

We stopped by for dinner and had great service by April. She helped accommodate our small family with little kids. The food was fresh and plenty! I'd definitely go back! Get the coconut shrimp!

We got in quickly and had our food within 20 mintues of arriving. Our server, Jeff, was excellent. He was knowledgeable about the food they offer that help profit local fishermen. I had the gulf Shrimp and it came with seasoned fries and key west slaw... Both delicious. Their honey mustard was out of this world and the ranch tasted... More
