Our new favorite place to eat (yep, I know, I say that a lot, but when I find another new place that is superb, I want you to know about it!) We had stopped at The Gulf right after it opened, and the outside venue just didn't appeal to us that day. It's built of shipping containers, bright blue ones,... More

EXCELLENT taste on everything ordered. Burger was superb; chicken tacos were delicious; the salad was fresh with excellent dressing; grouper sandwich YUM! Not only do you... More

When we arrived at 5:30pm on a Friday, we were probably as late as we could have been considering the ages in our party. We had 3 adults, and 3 kiddos, the youngest being 15 months. The set up is pretty brilliant for informal dining with rowdy kids. There were several picnic tables that were big enough for our group... More

Excellent place to grab a seat at the bar and drink a few! Not sure of the food but I saw a couple of dishes and they looked excellent.

Definitely recommend going. Had the fish tacos and they were food. They restaurant is in shipping containers and a very cool layout. The menu is limited. It it is all about being right in the water to enjoy.

The chicken in the soggy chicken tacos was unrecognizable. The nacho chips were purple. The shrimp tacos were soggy. 4 orders of tacos. 4 soft drinks. Chips/pico $66.00 Biting flies were complimentary. Never again!

Relaxing, romantic and worth trying. Staff was friendly and helpful. Not cramped and stuffy but plenty of room to roam about. We didn't have to wait long and the food was so good. We will definitely come back.

We went to The Gulf last Friday night. The evening was beautiful, the he view is beautiful, the flies were all over. One in our party had to leave and go buy bug spray. Our ankles and feet got ate up with mosquitos and flies. We did not realize the restaurant was a stand in line to get your food... More
