Just ok. This one has much potential and a great location. Second stay. Last one not good but we gave it another shot. My feet were black from walking barefoot. We had another issue but they fixed. Tub looked dirty but probably just old.

Came with some of my sisters from church for a "girls lunch", and so glad we came here! I had the Fisherman's Platter" which had can legs, fried shrimp, and clam strips; one friend had seafood Alfredo, and the other friends had grouper. All of...our meals were absolutely superb! The food came out hot and fresh, service was quick, and the seafood is fresh. If you order the seafood Alfredo, it comes with scallops... not "Bay" scallops, but REAL scallops, and they're cooked very well! Katie was our server today, and is SUPER friendly, attentive, and professional, as well as helpful/ knowledgeable about the area and things to do. If you're visiting the area, or live here but never been, you should definitely plan a visit! Good prices run between $10 - $30ish, depending on what you order.More

We waited nine months to go out for dining during covid. With most restaurants abiding by county ordinance, we chose inn on the gulf. The food was average, surf and turf, cocktails were great, all staff members wore masks EXCEPT our waitress. Every time she...came near I had to put my mask on. She wore hers around her chin. Also disappointing was the attitude, similar to that of an over ripe banana. She needs to consider a different kind of work. The ambiance and dining is worth a return visit, not too soon.More

This place used to be very good but have noticed steadily changing the food and not for the better. Shrimp cocktails used to be nicely served last time was just shrimp thrown in a little bowl. Loved the crab stuffed mushrooms,ordered them Friday night and...the stuffing was different was topped with a thick layer of cheese and what crab stuffing i could find was mostly all breading filler. Well that right there changed my mind of ordering what i wanted which was the shrimp, scallops and stuffing. So i ordered a side of scallops and the fried clams. Well while waiting for my dinner my stomach seemed to get upset which i took to be from the mushrooms which were a bit spicy or maybe from the peppers they now add so when my dinner came i told the waitress what ever was in them made me ill. Well didn't seem to matter. I tasted one of the clams and they seem to be different as well from last time i had them. The waitress didn't seem to care or take my meal off the bill so paid 20.00 for something i couldn't eat. So if thats the way this place want to be with customers i will never return and will pass word around to myh friends who frequent here. Also a mask order is in place yet i saw patrons walking inside i presume to use bathroom as well as leaving without masks on and a waitress talking to people at a table with hers around her neck.More

My wife and I are from Charleston, SC, so self proclaimed food snobs. To be honest, we had a hard time finding restaurants we liked in this area while visiting my mom. Also, due to covid, I insisted we eat outdoors which made our choices...somewhat limited. This is a little gem in a nice area of Hudson Beach. Great food right across from a park overlooking the gulf. Our waitress Amber was excellent, fast, efficient and pleasant. Sunset is a great time to be there.More

The food is great! The clam strips were so good I ate them two times in one day! Bar better and more friendly service than table outside.

I have not visited the Inn since last year and I was a bit disappointed. My 18 month old grandson was with me.The place mat he was given had been used! Already colored on! My daughter-in-law took him to the restroom to change him and...the changing table is located directly above the toilet and very high up almost unreachable.The hostess that seated us was wearing a mask, however, it was down on her chin. The food was ok. I remember it being better. I probably won’t go back for awhile. Too bad, it use to be a place I’d recommend to everyone. Not on the top of list for good places in the Hudson area anymore.More

Good good and reasonable as always. We should have left when we realized that the servers were not wearing masks and we did not see any sanitizing of the tables.
