Decent food. Interesting concept. Fun for the whole family. A little pricey for what you get. Nice outdoor seating. Not sure what you would do if it were raining.

Nice place to bring a family. Food is pricey for what you get. Drinks pricey too. You are paying for the view. Its a fun place especially for kids.

The Gulf has AMAZING views. Really neat atmosphere. Burger was also very good. Prices are a tad high but you pay for the atmosphere. I could sit and watch the boats going in and out of the pass all day long.

My 10 year old wanted to check out The Gulf. Great place to grab a bite to eat. The view of the water was nice! We had burgers and the grouper sandwich-all were very tasty!

I'm sorry but I don't know the answer to that question. I can tell you that their menu was written in chalk which would lead me to think that its posted locally at the restaurant.

Response from Darrell T C | Reviewed this property |
Since it is walk up counter service, its hard to tell. Saturday's are very popular. The wait in line could be quite long. If you go on Saturday, try to go as early as you can, after 6 pm, it may be crowded Regardless... More
