“On the top of the list again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

It has been a while since I have visited Gulfview after a few mediocre experiences. I was pleasantly surprised to find both the food and service back up to the level I had previously come to expect. As always, there are few places left in the area with such a magnificent view. Our table enjoyed a well rounded choice of items from the menu. All to everyone's enjoyment. In season I would recommend calling ahead for a reservation, and get there in time for the sunset. It truly heightens the experience.

“Beautiful view and good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

This restaurant is a favorite of ours. It has a wonderful atmosphere and good food,especially when you order the catch of the day. I had snapper which was delicious! My friends enjoyed Steak Diane and it was also very tasty. The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. If you are in Englewood don't miss out on the Gulf View Grill.

“Great food, Great Sunsets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

There are a half dozen restaurants along Manasota Key. The Gulf View is the one you don't go in in your bathing suit. The food is excellent--have the oysters on the halfshell--but try the large lobster roll on crossant, or the huge hamburger. They do a great business at sundown, but also on Sunday for Brunch/Lunch. Ordering from a menu (it's not a buffet) but the drinks are good and the food is even better.

And for just the two of you, sit at the bar (the bar has specials).

“The Gulfview Grill Has It All”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Simply-stated after dining at the Gulfview several times it consistently has it ALL. The VIEW whether it be admiring the glittering gulf and sandy beaches during the day or catching the brilliant sunsets at the end of the day or star-gazing and moonwatching off he outdoor deck at night is the Best in SWFL. The FOOD is delicious, the SERVICE is friendly and professional, the DRINKS are generous, the PRICES/VALUE is exceptional, the DECOR is tropical with wonderful orginal art, the PARKING is both plentiful and convenient....The Gulfview Grill has it ALL.
