Gulfstream Cafe Ratings and Reviews
This was our second trip to Gulfstream. First was a family get together and this time for our anniversary. Both times were enjoyable. Had to ask for a different table this time as the window tables have air ducts underneath that were blowing frigid air, but the hostess honored our request very guickly.
Food was very good and cooked as ordered. Service was very timely and friendly although our server seemed a bit distracted a couple of times.
Besides the good food and atmosphere, it's a great place to catch a sunset.
It's a place that we will take our out of town visitors to.
We have been coming to Gulf Stream since it opened. She Crab soup is the best anywhere. We asked for window table in our reservation, but were told none were available. We were not happy about that and after a discussion with manager, they moved us. Good and service are always very good.
Food is very overpriced, nothing special. Dinner menu only one side, salad is extra. Green Beans are raw and flavorless. Very loud. The bread they bring you is white with no flavor. They should at least bring you a small salad while you wait endlessly to get your dinner.
We enjoyed your restaurant several times but a good while has passed since the last visit.
We were both taken aback at the amount of salt in the sea food and it was too dry (possibly cooked a bit too long) We thought "it may be a new owner or even a different cook that made
Tiffany was our waitress and we enjoyed her quick and pleasant sense of humor.
Ambiance for Mother's Day dinner here was outstanding (we sat outside with view over the inlet waters). Our reservation was at 5 p.m.; we were quickly seated and our request upon arrival to be seated outside was no problem. Our waiter arrived quickly and was very accommodating when we indicated we wanted to enjoy a leisurely dinner. Once ordered, our food arrived promptly. Even though the food was pretty good, their menu is limited in choices. My Grouper Francaise was good, although it did not have any lemon sauce -- only couple lemon slices to squeeze over it. Choices of sides are also limited. Husband had the bang-bang shrimp appetizer, which he said "was not very bang-bang." Said his entree of Cioppino was also just "ok." Can say, though, that sourdough bread was excellent.
Took my mom for her birthday and she always has loved it there. While we were there (great food and experience that night as well) we received a flyer for mothers day brunch. We decided why not! We took her and it was wonderful. Weather was perfect for brunch outside with great food and great drinks. Savannah was great & did a great job keeping up with us and keeping things light yet personal. Thanks for a great mothers day!
I always enjoy Gulfstream, this experience was a bit different, but still very nice.
We went for Mother's Day, and it was crowded. We all did the buffet... it's apparently the only option on Sunday for brunch. The food was good, they had an omelet station, mussles, good salad options. Lots of people. Maybe overbooked a little.
1st time we had gone to the Gulf Stream. We went for our 30th anniversary and the view was spectacular at sunset. Got a little warn till the sun was low but overall comfortable. The food was presented well and had excellent taste and portioning was plentiful. I would recommend the Gulf Stream to anyone looking for a great meal with a wonderful view of the inlet.
Food was very good. However I was disappointed in the fact that they rushed us. We didn't finish our apps before they brought our salads then we had t finished our salads and they brought the entrees. There was not a waiting line plus for the price of a meal we should have been able to take our time.
We love coming here. We've only had brunch so far, but it's excellent. We always make a reservation. We usually take a Harley ride along the coast then settle in for some great food and beautiful views, then it's another ride along the coast home. Food is delish and the atmosphere is lovely. Highly, highly recommend.
Very disappointed. We were a party of 6. Four of us ordered the grouper francaise which was OK. One ordered the crab cakes; they were cold . The sixth ordered the ciopinno. The first 5 dinners were delivered at the same time with a promise that the ciopinno would be "right up". It was not and was delivered about 15 minutes after the others. And to make matters worse, several of the clams were not opened. To be fair to the restaurant, they did not charge us for that dinner, but it still made for a disappointing dinner.
The Sunday brunch buffet had a pretty good selection as well as a omelet bar. I was a bit disappointed in 3 things which are not deal breakers for everyone, just me: 1. Extremely slow service and the restaurant was not busy at all 2. NO LONGER HAS A BLOODY MARY BAR...What??? 3. No shrimp to go with my grits available, only fish. With all that being said, the view is amazing and the buffet is reasonably priced. Don't forget to make reservations on Open Table for an AMAZ view.
