The Gulf is a uniquely designed restaurant destination serving locally-inspired food and beverages in a beautiful waterfront setting. We are passionately committed to offering the freshest, seasonal menus of locally focused ingredients, with a concentration on Gulf seafood and sourcing from our neighboring regional farmers. Our menu changes daily. The Gulf is a casual yet chic seaside hideaway, where the sun, sand & lush beach setting complement the tasty food, drink and friendly casual service. Recline with your toes in the sand, have a seat at the bar or at a communal table, or meander about, enjoy the magical vibes, views and tunes. We spin vinyl, accent our shipping container design with recycled, reclaimed and salvaged building materials and make concerted efforts to practice sustainability and to reduce our carbon footprint.
