Good service, no happy hour wine deal, salad bar gone

Nice menu selection, especially appetizers. No happy hour deal on wine, food quality good, service VERY good. We were disappointed that the salad bar is no longer a feature. My companion was especially disappointed it was gone. Other reviewers are correct - very nice view over the water and beach.

We ate here twice on our week vacation and the views and food were awesome, but the hostess needs to be replaced. Young girl with long brown hair, very rude, no sense of urgency, infact we stood waiting in line for 10 minutes to be seated, the line was out the door before she came around and when she did...

We were able to get a table right on the beach and watch the sunset while eating dinner and enjoying drinks. It was spring break so the amount of drunks coming and going was quite high. However, the server and the guy helping her worked their butts off to keep up and did a good job. The food was very... More

This place has a spectacular view of the beach, especially on the upper deck at The Cottage Bar but that's about all it has going for it.... No happy hour specials, drinks watered down in plastic cups, and food just average at best. Servers were not friendly- actually seemed kind of annoyed. We had 2 servers as they made a... More

We love this restaurant, especially breakfast. We eat dinner there often for the great salad bar. They stopped having it right after Easter this year. Now we have to drive to Charlie's. Boo!

We wanted a place to eat dinner and watch the sunset, and we found it at Gulfshore. The restaurant is divided into three parts: The upstairs dining room, with big windows overlooking the beach; the outside deck adjacent to the restaurant where you can sit outside and enjoy the same menu; and the beach bar, downstairs, where you can either...

Walk through the ropes, pick an umbrella table, order and continue enjoying the beach!! The server was great but she was working solo. Understandably, service was slow, but her menu recommendations were spot on!!

Husband had alfredo and there was NO cheese. It tasted like a bland white sauce. I had baked stuffed shrimp,,, 6 small shrimp with crab meat on the top. Small and tasteless. There were 6 of us for dinner. Salad bar was the only thing good. Bar tender needs a lesson on making drinks. Our waitress was great. We would... More
