We've eaten upstairs at the Gulf View Grill many times and it is always wonderful. The food is always fresh, the atmosphere is welcoming and the view is beautiful! It sits right across the street from the beach and the beautiful view of the Gulf (hence the name, I'm sure!). The sunsets are gorgeous. The downstairs bar area is a... More

This is a great place for date night, an evening out with friends, and a great place for wedding receptions. Our daughter had her wedding reception here and it was lovely. Everyone raved about the room, the view, the service, and the food. Have been her many times for dinner with family and friends. It is one of our go... More

The high point of this restaurant (literally, since it's a raised building) is the atmosphere and the view. The center bar makes the place seem very "Florida" and the food is always good, though not exciting. Still makes for a nice night out, give it a try!

Started our week long vacation in Manasota Key with a wonderful dinner at this family, locally owned restaurant. We had wonderful seafood dishes and pleasant atmosphere. Probably best to have reservations "in season". This is one of many family owned restaurants we tried in the Manasota/Englewood area. We weren't disappointed with any of them.

Lunch was nice; they had a happy hour on cocktails which would have been great if we hadn't been driving ;) I had the crab soup - a cup was plenty as very rich. And we had lovely fresh salads. As British visitors here- the homemade breads made us chuckle- our salads were accompanied by two pieces of chocolate chip... More

Enjoyed dining at Gulf View and will return. Chose prime rib for me and the Queen cut fed me for two days, tender, juicy, perfect. Wife had linguine with shrimp and scallops and it was delicious and plentiful. Calamari shared was perfect, fresh, lightly breaded and tasty. One cocktail and three glasses of wine plus dessert only came to $90.... More
