“June 29, 2010@ the Grill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2010

I read the reviews with some concern. But it was my husbands birthday so I decided to take a chance. I have to say, I called at 5pm... and received the window seat I requested at 7pm.... our server Michael, was EXCELLENT. The food was perfect (we had steakes and oyrsters Rockerfeller) and every single person was polite and friendly. We will most definitely retunr the next time we are in town!

“Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2010

My family got together at the Gulf View Grill to celebrate my dad's 80th as well as Father's Day. This is one of my parents favorite restaurants and was an instant hit for the rest of us. The view is fantastic, the service was excellent & the seafood was exceptional. Our entire family are big seafood eaters & are quite picky - from the appetizers to the entrees, we all LOVED IT. I can't comment on dessert as no one had room for any!

“Great view and service, disappointing food.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2010

We (a party of 11) called ahead to make a reservation for a late lunch (2 PM) on Sunday. We arrived on time and were seated immediately...the restaurant was not busy and we had a great view of the beach and gulf across the road. The wait staff was friendly and courteous. We had four adults, five kids under the age of 12, and two teenagers. The kids were given kid menus and activity place-mats with Crayolas to keep them occupied.

The food, unfortunately, was disappointing. We had hoped that a restaurant on the coast would serve seafood of at least average or better quality but that was not the case. The grouper sandwich was at best of average quality; the fried shrimp were poor (doubtful they were even locally harvested); and the Shrimp & Pasta VLT was lackluster. Our 3 year old ordered the $7 macaroni and cheese kids meal which, upon delivery, was most likely prepared from a 20-cent box of Wal-Mart mac and cheese...you know, the kind that's made with orange powdered cheese.

“Highly recommend for delicious menu, gorgeous views and great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2010

After a long day of journeying down the coast, we had our 7:00 pm res. honored right on time. There were 2 large groups being served at the time, as well. The wait staff was amazing!! They were efficient, friendly, quick with recommendations, and kept on top of a busy evening without making us feel rushed. Food was GREAT. The beautiful and relaxing view tops it off. The owner was very visible and greeting the tables in very hospitable fashion. Complete value and delicious meal.

“Always our favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2010

The seafood is always fresh and delicious and served with a smile and timely. The different recipes affords us a freedom of experimentation with foods we already enjoy. We have come here for every anniversary since we moved down and bring our family and friends whenever we get the chance.
