    No longer pet-friendly

    Heads up pet parents - The Gulf now has a sign at the entrance that says that they are not pet-friendly due to Baldwin County ordinance.

    Friendly To Fur babies

    Great place for both you and your fur baby to enjoying the views, sun and terrific food. Only wish they had little dog bowls like other dog friendly restaurants often have, so if you go, make sure to bring your own!

    Super fun Location!

    Highly recommend this place! Our dog was so spoiled here that I’m sure she will drag us back time and time again. Food atmosphere and cocktails were all top notch!!

    Will be back with Sandi

    We love The Gulf! They gave her water and had plenty of shaded areas. They also had a great place for her to go to the bathroom. Will be back!

    Restaurant on the water

    The Gulf is a casual restaurant on the waters edge in Orange Beach. We saw no signs that indicated our dog would be allowed, but when we asked, we were told she'd be welcomed as long as she remained leashed. No water for the dog like other dog- friendly establishments we've been to. Nonetheless, it was nice, and we would certainly return if the opportunity presented itself.

    Casual waterfront hang-out!

    The Gulf is an open-air waterfront restaurant with burger/grouper sandwich/salads/full bar menu. It's dog/kid-friendly. Get there early to get in line to place your order, and they'll bring you the food. Free refills on soda. Food is tasty and simple. I had the grouper sandwich, a white sangria and tripe berry dessert. My dog had a great time too! I'll be back.
