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

The food was a little above average and the prices were about average. The only gripe was it was a long wait for our food.The place was nicely decorated.

My dad and I came here because our hotel's front desk recommended it plus I was along the beach and we were in the vicinity! The staff was friendly, fast, and the food was awesome! We had stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer with the most amazing garlic/Parmesan sauce. Plus that incredible sauce came on my grouper so I was delighted!!... More
