“Good seafood with nice views.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We stopped for lunch while driving along the beach, and we weren't disappointed. Grouper sandwich was good, beer was cold, sun was warm, view was nice.

“Don't miss this grille!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

,sandwich I lack the words to describe our experience at Gulfview! We were greeted at 5:30 by enthusiastic hostesses and a packed restaurant and bar. A hostess informed us of a 5 minute weait for a dinner table and suggested we might want to wait at the bar. That was a good call. We found a table in the bar with an excellent view of the Gulf. We were almost immediately served by Frank, who I thoughr was the owner. He took the time to treat us like royalty and our drinks arrived right away. Frank materialized somewhat after to take our dinner order. Fortunately the specials were just what we wanted: rib rack and stuffed grouper, complete with salads, potato or vegetable and complementary bread. The food was wonderful and unique. Throughout our experierience the sun sank slowly into the Gulf on this sunny evening. This is a view for the dedicated romantic! When the sun set, a kind of hush went over the crowd! I would go to this grille again and again and bring everyone I know to experience this wonderful restaurant and happy meeting place!

“Go For the View At Happy Hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We have lived in Englewood for 16 years, and this place was one of the first we visited in 1997.
I think it was called the Beach Place back then. A little screened in porch on the second floor and a huge bar area. My how things have changed.....and for the good. The bar is still there and that is our favorite spot to dine when just my hubby and I. We still can view the sunsets, get reasonable happy hour drink prices, and choice of either bar fare or dining room menu. In season the place is hopping and noisy, but if you are a people watcher you will have an enjoyable evening. The food is tasty and good. Nice evening out and no dishes to do.

“Worst service ever”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Wonderful outside elevated deck but smoking is allowed. Service was absolute worst. Ordered drinks twice, got it wrong. Took our order 4 times for dinner and still got it wrong then brought out food out 5 mins. Later Like it was already pre-cooked. Tried to compensate us with free bottle of wine but dinner for 4 off value menu was still 103.00 without tip. Will not return there

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Gulf view Grill has a marvelous view of the sunsets over the gulf since the dining area is located on the second floor with floor to ceiling glass. Food was excellent and quite reasonable. Service was very efficient , professional, and friendly.
