The Gulf Restaurant in Destin Features Car Charging Stations


There is a new restaurant on Okaloosa Island. The Gulf Okaloosa Island is the sister restaurant to the original in Gulf Shores, AL. The Gulf not only features a deliciously diverse menu but also supports green practices. So we asked, Newman-Dailey’s “Green” Agent Mark DeSalvo to share his thoughts on Okaloosa Island's newest restaurant.

“I love the fact it is constructed out of re-purposed shipping containers. The food is very good with a daily selection of fresh seafood. I was told they don't even have a freezer on-site since everything is made fresh daily. I can smell the grouper sandwich right now! And don't forget to try the hummus appetizer--so, so good!

The grounds are very modern complemented by white sand and azure water from the sound. Plenty of spots to dock your boat while you dine or enjoy a refreshing beverage. Being an EV (Electric Vehicle) owner, I also appreciate the Gulf having multiple charging stations to charge my vehicle while I dine. Overall a great experience that I suggest to anyone.”

The Gulf Restaurant is located at 1284 Marler Avenue on Okaloosa Island. Open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. To view the menu visit

We applaud Mark for going “green” and his use of his electric vehicle for all his showings reduces the impact he has on the environment. For others who have taken the leap to driving electric vehicles, view the Plug Share Website for a map with the charging stations along the Emerald Coast.
