We stopped here for dinner after a day of enjoying the beach area. We all had a light dinner ordering just appetizers. The waiter was very accommodating. The food was served quickly and was tasty. I would come here again for a full dinner on another visit.

We tried Hemmingway's Island Grill for the first time this trip to Gulf Breeze. We were not disappointed. The food was flavorful. They have a dish called "Bang Bang Shrimp" that is outstanding. If you arrive before 5PM they also have what they call "10 for $10" which is exactly what it sounds like. You can select one of the... More

Great location and a spectacular view seems to be the selling point. Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful restaurant and if you get there at the right time in the evening, it is a spectacular sun set. The food however, is best summed up in "the tourists will come." It seems they don't put much effort into it.

Very enjoyable meal with a view of the bay. Jumbo wings were fantastic, Caesar salad had a delicious dressing. Would go there everyday just for that salad!

Wonderful Service. Have enjoyed Sunday Brunch as well as week-end night dinner. Varied menu with some Cuban items. The Champagne Brunches are good and kids enjoyed the selection of various food items. The waterfront Restaurant also serves as a local favorite for wedding receptions, graduation parties, birthday and other celebrations. The menu for these items is very good and reasonably... More

Brunch with three adults and an 18 month old and Kayla, the waitress, anticipated everything we might need with the toddler. We eschewed the buffet, attractive as it was, and ordered from the menu. We were all delighted with our choices and I was amazed and amused to have ordered two eggs and bacon and have my meal arrive with... More

Offer a Cuban style food, plus seafood and steaks! Great onion spirals, cant remember the name, but they are some of my favorite. Great lunches for under $10 as well. and Great mojitos' My dad loves the root beer float, and for adult bevereages, they can add alclohol. So yummy

We went up an elevator and it stopped at a bar, had to go around it to get to the front stand. Very pleasant bartender though. We were seated near the window and views of the bay were gorgeous. Both of us ordered the pork tenderloin and it was good, but for desert we ordered the bread pudding. It was... More
