It took a few visits, but last night these folks earned an excellent rating. Last night's leisurely pace for dinner was a welcome change from previous almost fast-food service. Our server Meghan, was warm, helpful and attentive. We had a lovely view of the ocean, which adds to the ambiance greatly. The corn-fed Angus ribeye steak was grilled just right,... More

I stopped here for a drink and to watch sunset. I was surprised that draft beers during "happy hour" were $5. Sunset was great. Next time I'll sit upstairs where view is supposed to be great and food is served.

We hoped for a quiet, relaxing atmosphere for a family dinner of seven adults. We were seated early for our reservation and had constant service throughout the meal. While this is normally a good thing, we found that that the service was so fast that plates were removed prior to the entire group finishing an entrée/appetizer, etc. We even requested... More

We ate on the upstairs deck with s beautiful view of Englewood Beach. We did not have seafood which we have since been told was a mistake. The food was not tasty and the service was just OK.

Tonight we went with friends to an early dinner here, 5 pm so we could enjoy the sunset while having our meal. Our friends wanted to eat here, and while my last experience at this restaurant was not very good, I didn't say anything and decided to give it another try. So glad I did. I had the pan fried...

We went to Englewood Beach for the first time and found it to be a great place to go. We were in Florida for only 4 days and we wanted some fresh fish. The Gulf View was a good choice. We looked downstairs at the bar and saw they had grouper only upstairs so that's where we went. The service... More

Nice place, great atmosphere and even better food. Visit here about an hour before sunset, the view is amazing. It's busy tho, so be prepared and come early. In my opinion, the best restaurant on the beach.

My husband and I went for dinner and were not at all disappointed!! I had the prime rib which was to die for and my husband had the sea bass,he practically licked the plate! The service was impeccable and since we were seated by a window,we got to see a beautiful sunset. I will be recommending this restaurant to everyone... More
