Gulfstream Cafe Ratings and Reviews

Great Sunday brunch with friends. Dining on the waterfront at the marina is very relaxing. Rod our server was very friendly and efficient. Brunch was outstanding. My husband loves the omlettes to order and I love the oyster shooters and lunch offerings on the brunch bar.

We had made reservations for my wife's birthday for 8pm for three people. We arrived 5 mins early and a group that arrived ahead of us with no reservations were seated at one of the last remaining water view tables. We were told to wait and after 5-10 mins we were seated at a water view table right next to the patio door which had constant traffic and the other side of the table the person sitting there had little room due to a large party sitting at the next table. An air conditioning vent was located under the table which was uncomfortable. We tried to make the best of it but eventually we asked for the manager and she had a bit of attitude but found another table. My point in this is if you have a party with a reservation arriving I would think you would hold the best table for them not sit a party that didn't take the time to make a reservation ahead of them. We are regular customers of the Gulfstream Cafe and still will continue to visit. Just a bad experience.

Highlights of our 30th anniversary meal: Crab legs over cooked, garlic mashed potatoes - were garlic mush, green beans - blan, she-crab soup was outstanding, steak was excellent, fries were cold and tasteless, cheese cake - just a cold lump on the plate-Gordon Ramsey would not be pleased!

We were looking for a nicer seafood place and this place is perfect. At the suggestion of our server we tried the Shrimp and Grits appetizer and it was great. My wife ordered the Mahi and I had the Lump Crab Cakes and both were great. Will certainly go again.

This was our first visit to Gulfstream Café and it is now on our "favorites" rotation. I booked this reservation because of a recent review that said this place was one of the two "best views" spots in SC. Since it was just up the street from where we were staying I thought we'd give it a try. The sunset view from the outside dining area is by far the best in the Myrtle Beach area. Our meal was very enjoyable, we all had something different and nobody had any regrets regarding their selection or how things were prepared. The wait staff was helpful and attentive, the cocktails were well done and a great experience was had by all. We will definitely be going back the next time we are in the area.

The Gulfstream Café is a yearly destination for our family during our stay in Myrtle Beach. We made a reservation, and were seated immediately upon arrival. Our waitress was friendly. One of our family members requested an item that was no longer on the menu. Our waitress was able to have the chef prepare it for him. All in all you can't beat the food and the fabulous view!

The outdoor seating gave a wonderful ambiance for preparing to see the sunset over the marsh. The idea of this is what drew me to the Gulfstream Cafe and I wasn't disappointed, except for a young child being seated next to me. I immediately ordered what sounded like a tasty cocktail, but it ended up being simply ok; nothing to brag about or worth ordering a second. I then switched to wine. Even though the special of the Blackened Mahi sounded delicious, I thought it a little overpriced for where I had just had it the night before at a nearby restaurant. So, I decided on the fried flounder. I was happy with my choice, as it was delicious!! The hush puppies had somewhat of a sweet taste to them which is not my preference, so I skipped finishing those. One thing I wish could be done is the top rail of the outdoor porch seating be lowered. The view of the marsh is a big selling point for this place and yet when you are seated, it is difficult to get a good picture of the view without getting up and moving away from your table. Everyone seemed to be doing just that, so it was a bit distracting. Overall, my meal was very tasty and a relaxing, enjoyable dining experience. My server Jesse was the highlight of the experience as he was very attentive and took very good care of me.

We visit Gulf Stream every trip to the Myrtle Beach area. Wonderful outdoor seating. Very nice views, great sunset. Good food, reasonable price. Great friendly service. Highly recommended for anyone visiting the Myrtle Beach area

We went to gulfstream 2 times this summer, once for the early bird special and liked it very much so decided to return and try the regular menu. These were our problems the second time.
1. No utensils on our table. We had to ask twice.
2. Had to ask for bread plates.
3. Salad was served with no dressing...had to ask for some.
4. Requested more water. It never came.
5. The filet mignon was served raw in the middle. It was sent back twice.
6. Asked for leftover box 3 times before it came.
I wish I could say something positive, but the whole experience was very frustrating. I guess the positive is we didn't have to pay for the filet since we couldn't eat it.

This place is across the street from where we vacation. we took a friend this year telling her about the wonderful crab soup. not as wonderful this year. soup was just warm and not served with a side of sherry. when asked our just average server said we no longer do that . So glad this was not out first time.

We eat at Gulfstream at least three times per year and have for the last 10-12 years whenever we stay at our beach house. Most of the time the service and food are excellent. On this occasion the food was great but service was subpar from the moment we walked in till we finished. People were cordial and tried to be helpful but our table wobbled and the staff didn't try to fix it. My son used sweetener packets from the table to steady it. Our server was slow and not the most attentive person. I had to ask him to bring us bread after he served the table beside us who were seated at least 15 minutes after we were seated. All in all things were okay but not great. For the money we spent and the number of times we've been there "okay" is not acceptable.

Beautiful view... Not much more than that. Bought a pitcher drink for $23. Lots of ice, lots of juice, no alcohol that we could taste or "feel" after drinking that much. Food was ok and waiter was rushed. (Wasn't that busy at 8:00)

This was my third visit to the Gulf Stream Café. The reason my wife and I have come back to this restaurant was 3 things.... Romantic setting, food and service. Unfortunately this last visit we were missing the service. although polite, our server rushed us initially, and when we tried to slow him down by ordering our drinks & appetizers we became forgotten. Walking past with empty drinks, never asking if we'd like to order our dinner. Other couples came and went before our dinner was served. I would still recommend this restaurant because of our other visits. Possibly the server was just having a bad evening.

We made a 7:00 reservation and requested a table by the window. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset and a delicious dinner. The shrimp and grits appetizer was very good and not the usual shrimp and grits.
It is a great place for a date or special occasion.

Everything was great except the hostess (blonde hair up in a bun, white blouse, black slacks)
REAL attitude, not welcoming or friendly. When we left no "hope you had a good time", "have
a nice evening", thanks for coming", "come again"...nothing. If she's there next time, I'll leave.

The Gulfstream Cafe is a very good seafood and steak restaurant. The food is very good and the service is great. We had reservations and out table was ready when we arrived. The food value is a good average for the area and the bar mixes a good drink.

Gulfstream Cafe has great ambience. It is terrific for seeing the great sunsets from all over the restaurant . The service was excellent. The food was delicious. I ordered a steak and it came exactly how I like it! The others with me were also very happy with their food. One of them had the Seafood platter and the the other the half of roast chicken. The portions were generous. We needed a to go box? This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend and I have recommended to others. It was a great dining experience.

Food was very average - especially seafood dishes which were quite dry. We had a party of 9 and the place was pretty busy. Server was hustling and doing a nice job, but the food was not what we expected. Menu was intriguing, but ultimately disappointing. Very good view of the water and convenient to Garden City residents or vacationers. Probably won't return.

We used to love this place but the menu has become too restricted and expensive for what they served. My meal was not good - and I was supposed to get two side dishes and a salad. They only sent out one side and then charged extra for the salad, anyway. Two other dinners looked good and one other had the same problem mine did. They were busy but they usually are. I will go back for brunch but not for dinner.

a visit to this place has been an annual ritual for at least the past decade. I go to Myrtle Beach every year to visit my aunt and uncle plus soak up some beach time. Traditionally the last full day I am in town we will go to the Gulfstream for dinner. They have a terrific early bird menu. Normally it is first come first serve so I was excited to see that I could use open table to make a reservation! When we were seated, there was a party of eight, we were given regular dinner menus. When we asked for the early bird menus we were advised BECAUSE WE MADE A RESERVATION WE WERE NOT ABLE TO GET THE EARLY BIRD MENU. After speaking to the manager we were permitted to order from the early menu. I suggest that a disclaimer be added to state that if you book a dinner reservation during the 4 to 6 pm period you can not take advantage of the early bird specials. we did not hold it against our server and left her a $40 tip.

Amazing fried shrimp. Not your typical crusted fried shrimp, just dusted and delicious. Amazing salads. Great view. My guest had the crab legs that were amazing. The filet was great. Meal was awesome. Prices are high though. But the delivery of a great meal was there so you get what you pay for.
