Gulfstream Cafe Ratings and Reviews
This is one of our local favorites, right on the water at the Inlet. Limited menu, but excellent fresh catches and cooked to perfection. A little noisy on a Friday night, but a very popular place for great evening out at reasonable price. Wait staff and management always makes us feel welcome and glad to see us. Friendly and a great change from the hustle-bustle of most "seafood" restaurants up and down the beach.
We have been meaning to try Gulfstream for quite some time and finally made it. It is in a nice quiet spot in Garden City away from the crowds. The menu isn't huge but the food was excellent. Everyone in my group got the fried seafood platter. It was $24 and was worth it. The hot bread that came out was great too. Wish the meal came with a salad but that was extra. Service was great.
We had a pleasant evening dinner with a great waiter. We go to this restaurant every time we visit Murrells Inlet. The restaurant is actually in Garden City. The menu is primarily seafood but has chicken and steak options. They also have great early bird specials.
We found Gulfstream Cafe last year while on vacation on the recommendation of a server at another restaurant! We made a point to return this year. The food is excellent, and the staff is friendly and efficient. The view is serene and very pretty. We will definitely return next year and we would highly recommend the restaurant to anyone visiting the Myrtle Beach or Murrell's Inlet areas.
Enjoyed a wonderful dinner for 7. She-crab soup, oysters rockefeller & fried calamari were scrumptious appetizers! Our party enjoyed grouper francaise, fried lobster tail, seafood cioppino, fried shrimp platter, the new york strip medium & one of the daily specials - blackened, grilled tuna steak medium rare. Everything was cooked to our specifications & on point. The portions were generous, the sides well prepared, & all of it was plated attractively. The sunset view over the marsh was spectacular! No room for dessert this time, but we will address that on our next visit!
We have been going to the Gulfstream Cafe for 20 years, but sadly this may have been the last time for us. They have everything going for them...location (we can walk there from where we stay), ambience, and the staff is wonderful. But the food is lacking. I don't think the menu has changed in the all the years we have been going here. If it has changed, it has not changed much. I'm sorry to say I don't think the food is worth the price you pay.
The Gulfstream Cafe has become our favorite dinner spot in the Myrtle Beach area. The seafood is wonderful every time. We find the service excellent, and the marsh/inlet view makes the choice easy! Everything is beautifully prepared and served, and quality is consistent. The menu is not extensive, but what they do, they do very well!
I have been coming to the Gulfstream Cafe for 6 years, each and every time I vacation in Surfside Beach, and typically more than once during the week. The view is incredible (beautiful sunsets), you are on the water and the food and service is great. They have great early bird specials, but early or late is is a great place to dine.
This is a gem! There are countless restaurants in this area but a number trade on name recognition rather than quality. Gulfstream is a true find. Their seafood is fresh and prepared superbly. Our waiter, Jesse, could not have been more attentive and helpful. This was not our first visit and when we go to Myrtle Beach, we have started including a night at Gulfstream. True, when we stay in North Myrtle, it's a bit of a drive but always worth it. If you haven't tried it, do. And have a reservation.
