Gulfstream Cafe Ratings and Reviews
We were seated at a booth near the kitchen, my least favorite place to sit in any restaurant but considering it was Easter Sunday I took what I could. I would not recommend sitting at the booth if you visit this restaurant - it was very noisy and uncomfortable seating for a family with small children. The wait staff had a tendency to set trays and used dishes on the sides of the booth while attending to other duties. Very unpleasant. Overall the service was inconsistent and we seemed to get more attention the closer it grew toward the end of the meal - tip time.
My husband, mother-in-law and I attended Easter Brunch. The food preparation, selection and presentation was great and the server was very attentive. We live in the area and visit Gulf Stream frequently. We have never been disappointed in the food or the service. The view from all areas are breathtaking. I would, and do on many occasions recommend Gulf Stream for their early bird and evening fine dining. GREAT JOB TO ALL THE STAFF.
Even though we had a reservation, when we arrived, we still had to wait almost 40 minutes for a table, which was understandable as it was Easter Brunch. I was disappointed that they kept running out of food and it wasn't being replaced quickly, which left everyone hanging around the buffet table. The omlette station was a nice touch, but where it was located, also left people backed up waiting to get other food items. I must admit, the food was amazing and the waiter we had was terrific and very friendly. The view from the porch was amazing and it was the perfect day for an Easter Brunch!
We went here for Easter brunch on a recommendation from friends. It did not disappoint! We sat outside on patio, great view. My boys watched jellyfish and boats. Food was good, refilled quickly when an item was running low. Our server was attentive, brought us refills on our drinks, cleared plates as we went for buffet. I would recommend.
If staying out on Garden City beach and you want a spot for cold beer without getting in car to go toward Myrtle Beach etc , this is fine for that. Was expecting (hoping) menu to have local seafood options. We had scallops and shrimp. Fine, just nothing great. Again - beer was cold and that was great!
Did not seem to be prepared for a crowd at all. Had no silverware. Had to ask twice. Ordered a bottle of wine and they "ran out of wine glasses". We had wine in martini glasses. Disappointed to say the least as a bill for 4 people can be large. Paid quite a bit of money for 1 small crab claw... Might not go back again. Has gone downhill since the last time we ate there.
We had made a reservation through Open Table but due to traffic, we were going to be 15 min late. We called Gulfstream and they said no problem. When we arrived, we were put upstairs, near the bar in a table for 5, near a door that goes out to the deck. There were only 2 in our party. It made the conversation difficult between the bar noise and large table and the door slamming going out to the deck.
Food was good as usual.
My blind date and I had a wonderful meal outside around 7:00. Gulfstream has a unique blend of charm and the only restaurant I know with a Westerly view of Murrells Inlet. The sunset.....
I just wish my date had gone better. She kept getting up to take pictures of the sunset. When I suggested a sunset picture is better with someone in it, she included the couple at the next table for her next photo. Sheesh. It was about then I asked for the check.
I have eaten here before a couple of times and they were all good. But this time my server was slow but I think she was overworked with two large tables. When that is the case you should assign a different server to the smaller tables. The fried platter was way overcooked and the tuna was a bit bland.....I do want to like this restaurant...but it failed bigtime this time.
Gulf Stream has become our favorite restaurant at Garden City. The staff is friendly and food is great. We like the smaller portions (and prices) of the early dining plus enjoy the Sunday brunch. It is not possible to get a view every time but we have enjoyed many sunsets sitting at the west windows.
I ate dinner at this restaurant many times and was always very pleased , but this was the first time I went there for brunch and was very disappointed,the scramble eggs were watery like they might have been powdered eggs, the sausage links were over cooked, I by passed the scramble eggs and went for the omelet table the omelet I ordered was soso. I requested a table at a window and was very pleased to get my request, the view we had was very nice. I will go back to this restaurant for dinner anytime but for brunch I will think twice.....
Seated at front under a low ceiling with table of 10-12 screaming, intoxicated girls / women across from us. We should have asked to be moved - that is on us.
Could not even hear to talk w/ companion. Horrible experience.
Waitress was EXCELLENT. Food was GOOD but not GREAT. Will NEVER GO BACK or recommend.
Poor service. Water refilled once only then empty for the remainder of the meal. Never got checked on again. Not offer dessert. No it knowledge meant of the special event the reservation was made for. Food was less than average. Creamed spinach appeared to be chopped frozen spinach not fresh; was inedible. Very disappointed.
Wonderful night, beautiful view, awesome food, almost a perfect restaurant. We went there for our anniversary and had a romantic experience to remember. We're from MD and get great seafood. Gulfstream Cafe is only place in the Myrtle Beach area that we've found to have seafood as good as MD. We ordered quite a few entrees to try out their menu and all the food was truly outstanding. They served the best lobster tail I've ever eaten and 2nd best crab soup (sorry, no one has beat my favorite soup in MD). My wife loved their spicy Shrimp and Grits too. The bar staff was fun and served us good drinks, table service was prompt and attentive, and it's perfect a place for a sunset view. I would recommend this place to everyone.
