“Great place for a group gathering!!!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

We held a rehearsal dinner at the Gulf Shore Grill on March 1st. Everything turned out beautifully. We are not from the area, so it was difficult to know where to host such an event, and have confidence that all would be fine, sight unseen, but with the help of Marcy, the events planner, Leslie, the manager on duty, and a great wait staff, everything was organized and arranged when we arrived and the evening ran smoothly. Thanks to the staff for making the night a special one that we will all remember!

“Lovely view, but disappointing meal”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

The beach view here is stunning and on a rainy day this restaurant offers nice protected indoor views from the glassed in patio. Our experience with the food, however, was mixed, and we arrived on a rainy day when the restaurant was almost empty, so that can't be explained away by overworked staff.

The restaurant offers breakfast options until 2 pm, so my daughter had an omelette while I had the eggs benedict. The omelette was fine, a bit heavy on the cheese and the fruit was a bit under ripe, but otherwise okay. My eggs, however, were terrible. The "special homefries" were like cheap, diced up french fries. One third were practically still frozen, the remainder barely warm. They left a strange, almost burning sensation in my mouth, like there was a chemical that didn't agree with me in the mix. And the poached eggs were so runny that I had clear egg white sliding across my plate. Yuck. The coffee was also sub-par, bland and watery.

Fortunately, excellent company, good service and the incredible view helped me enjoy my lunch, in spite of the food. I would definitely steer away from the breakfast menu if you decide to eat here.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

With its great location you might think the service or food would be sub-standard but to their credit they are not. This restaurant is not pretentious in any way but for a reasonable price you can have a superb sunset, beach and ocean view and it is much more than burgers and fries. The salad bar is excellent, the Margaritas are great and my steak was really good. The staff are pleasant and efficient which is much more than I could say for the Bayfront Bistro at twice the price. We will definitely give it another go in future. Thankfully they do not promote themselves hugely which is why we cold walk in at 5.30 and get a table right at the window. When we left it was a different story with a packed car park (quite small) so maybe they are well known after all. Get there early !
