Recommended by a friend

I was in town for business and a friend recommended the Gulfshore Grill. We were looking for a place that was casual, had seafood and a great views. This hit on all marks. It was off season so it was empty. Our waiter was terrific. We started with a half order of the Beach Bread. One word... read more

Picture it- you've arrived into town on your first day of vacation. You've driven around a strange area, dealt with airports, parking, check in. My husband and I, we settled in and walked around. We found this place and decided it looked nice and quiet. Just as we relax and are enjoying ourselves, a loud drunk group of folks are... More

Like others we were disappointed that the salad bar was gone. So we were thrilled when we stopped for dinner this week to see that the salad bar is back! Fantastic views, fabulous food, AND managers who pay attention to what customers want. Thank you.

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!
