Loved the view. Very laid back atmosphere. The fire pit and lounge area was very nice. The family really liked the gift shop

We arrived at the Gulf for a late night dinner. The atmosphere is the selling point of this place. The food is pretty good, and the service is average, but the views and vibes of this place is what will keep me coming back.

My dad and I love visiting here. We try to go for lunch at least once a trip. We split a burger and the grouper sandwich and an order of fries. Everything here is so good! And the views are awesome.

Love going to the Gulf every time I go to the beach. Seating at your table watching the Pass is a perfect place to go for lunch.

We will be staying at Turquoise Place (just down the beach) and I'm wondering if we could walk on the beach and get to The Gulf? Or will we need to drive?
