The wind today was incredible so we decided to spend our Anniversary having a late lunch at one of our favorite restaurants which also overlooks the Gulf of Mexico with its frenzied surf today. The food was delicious, hot and appetizing and our server, Sherry, was wonderful. What a treasure! Great food, great views - what more could one ask.

I was surprise to see what a great view is available at the Gulfview grille. Although there is a parking lot across from the restaurant the views of the Gulf are great. We just happen to be there at sunset. The view is not the only thing that is great. The scallops I had were broiled to perfection and the... More

Outstanding, Outstanding, Outstanding! These are the only words to describe last nights eating experience at the Gulf View Restaurant in Englewood. It was my husband's 73rd birthday and he had a craving for their Chilain Sea Bass. Because of my failure to make reservations, upon our arrival we were told by the hostess the next available table would require a... More

We had a wonderful lunch on the upper patio overlooking Englewood beach. Food was excellent, drinks delicious, and the view amazing. We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Our dinners at sunset are breath taking! This place is a must stop each time we are in Englewood..

Had reservations and was seated for view of sunset. Server came immediately for drink order. After sunset, ordered dinner. It arrived promptly and was delicious! Sea Bass melted in your mouth. Great fresh salad. Waiter filled beverages in a timely manner. The only slightly negative experience was the waiter who was full of himself. He was good at his job... More

They make great drinks and have decent bar food. I did not eat in the restaurant but I would certainly give it a whirl. The service is excellent and engaging. This is a nice place to stop and have a drink and be outside across from the beach. They also have wonderful music on Sunday's.
