We visited twice during the month. Everyone in our party of 5 rated it a solid 5. Grouper is excellent; Neptune seafood platter excellent. I ordered the full rack of ribs. Loved it. Unlike Sharky's, this sea view restaurant gives you good value for a reasonable price. It is very crowded during snowbird season, and reservations are essential for dinner.... More

Four or us went for a late lunch and was pleasantly surprised to find the place not very busy so got a window table which looks west over the beach, four meals were ordered, all different and they arrived quickly and correct resulting in four well satisfied diners.

Delicious meals! I would highly recommend the artichoke & crab appetizer! I had the Steak Diane and it was fabulous! Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals! Save room for lemon cake! The best dessert! Make your reservations around the sunset. What a spectacular view!

So disappointed in Neptune dinner, two of the three kind of seafood were way overcooked. Manager did give a discount on it. I had asked for an order suggestion from wait staff so I told them to not suggest that dish.

My Wife and I had dinner with our friends at the Gulf View Grill and were impressed with the location, view and food. This was an excellent restaurant with great service . I look forward to returning again.

If you get a window table and there's a clear sunset, the view is fabulous as the windows face due west. Here're the drawbacks: the food was mediocre (my wife and our friend had pan seared scallops which were undercooked; I had crab cakes that I rate a 7 because of the excessive dough); and the noise level made it...

A classy restaurant on the beach, with a great view of sunsets in the evening. Casual bar at ground level and restaurant is on the 2nd level. Can get crowded and is noisy, but the view makes you forget everything. Great food.

The sunset view is just the beginning. The dinners are great, and the lunches are even better. A very popular eatery and watering hole right across from the beach. Prices are reasonable, albeit a bit on the high side. Happy hour every day till 6:00 pm. Definitely a place that's worth a try.

Thank aichdot
