“Great food, less service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2011

If we had decent service we would have rated Gulfview excellent. Prime rib and fish were tops in the area. Our server was terrible. After she took our orders we didn;t see her again for 50 minutes. Had to get another server to get us some water.... Great food though.

“This place was perfect.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2011

I came to this restaurant randomly with my girlfriend for dinner. We couldn't get a window table but still had an excellent view of the sunset. I got the filet and it was cooked exactly right. She got the seabass and loved it. Our server was... Wendy I think. She was friendly and able to answer all our questions with patience (which my girlfriend needs). Prices were high average but worth the view! Ill definately go back.

“No Surprises... Good Food, Good Service, Great View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2011

Friends and family have enjoyed dining at Gulfview for a number of years now. Like any establishment there have been times they have missed their mark, but those times become the more forgetful experiences. The food and service is a notch above many other area restaurants, and none compare to the view. Well worth a visit.

“Beautiful view of the gulf!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2011

We went there for lunch and food was reasonably price and service was excellent! Lunches start around $6.00 and dinners around 13.00. Donnie loved the mahi mahi sandwich and I had the ceasar salad with delicious fresh bread and butter.
