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.

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.

The service was exceptional. Great care of diners' needs. Filet mignon was overdone was returned to kitchen and perfectly served second time around. Stuffed lobster was wonderful. Side cream spinach was salty. Shrimp appetizer was very good. Great sunset.

We had a lovely time out with our 9mo while on vacation. I was pleasantly surprised by the vegetarian option that wasn't on the menu (pasta with vegetables and Alfredo sauce). Server was not super friendly, but service was fine, food was great, and view was terrific. Would have been even better if we had stayed until the sun set, but...9mo :)

food was good only very small portions (for a man). the view was spectacular however the table we sat at was in front of the door to go outside so every time it was opened we got a burst of very hot air, this make eating uncomfortable. in addition our table was the only one facing west for the sun set that did not have a 'screen to block the sun'. having been to gulf stream several times my husband was very disappointed in the serving size. the quality was excellent as usual. the table was very uncomfortable.

As usual, the she crab soup was outstanding. The tuna was a fresh catch and was good but the presentation and spices were rather plain. My wife said the grouper was good. The view of the sunset is always worth doing. Still one of my favorite places but they just need to step up their tuna dish.
Advice, go a bit later to avoid the noisy kids and catch the sunset.

We didn't know what to expect when we had chosen the restaurant as we had never been there before or new anyone that had been there. Turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. Restaurant was very nice, food was good, wine was great, view was beautiful. More kids than we were expecting, but they handled it very well.

The view here was amazing! It was a beautiful setting to sit outside and look out on the inlet. The big disappointment was the sides that came with my entree. They were not good. And not worth what I paid for the meal. The fries were old and not fresh and the spinach was a low quality creamed spinach. I just had higher expectations for a $25 meal.

We went for Sunday Brunch. The food was wonderful, we had the buffet. There was a great variety of food on the buffet and everything was very tasty. We highly recommend this restaurant. We will definitely eat here again.

We took friends to the Gulfstream Café. It was the first visit for all of us and we had no idea what to expect. The restaurant was larger and more upscale than we anticipated, but very comfortable. This restaurant is owned by a group that owns several other well known restaurants throughout the Southeast. The food was very good, though the menu was a bit short. There was no option for a stand alone salad and it took some manipulating to get the house salad that came with my dinner to be served along with everyone else's appetizers. Other than that odd wrinkle, the service was very good. Beautiful views of the marshlands, good sunset.
All four of us agreed we would return.

This time the food wasn't quite as good as it was the last time we went. The cheese grits were runny and so were the eggs. The tomatoes were sliced much thinner that were paired with the mozzarella. The food also wasn't 'hot'. We had a reservation at 10am so everything was fresh, it just seemed ok this time compared to excellent a few weeks prior.

We were a group of 7 which included 3 children. Our waiter was most accommodating and had a great sense of humor. He was most attentive and made certain no ones glass was empty of their beverage. When booking reservations I requested a window table, which they were able to provide. My grouper entree was delicious and for fried fish proved to be very light. Four of our group ordered steak and all commented how it was prepared as requested and very tender. Salads were a nice mixture of greens and dressing was very tasty. We brought our own wines with us as Gulfstreams corking fee is $10.00/bottle. We didn't even consider dessert because the entrees were more than enough food. We had an enjoyable dinner with great tasting food in a relaxing and scenic restaurant overlooking the inlet at sunset.

We venture to MB every 5 years and one of our favorite places to come to is Gulfstream Café. We are so pleased that the view, food, and general atmosphere never changes as some places do. We always enjoy a wonderful meal and the gorgeous sunsets and the overall peacefulness. And to add your Bloody Mary Shooters. Keep doing what you do and can't wait for our next visit.

We sat outside with a beautiful view of the water and were greeted by our waiter quickly! He was very attentive. I got the crab cakes (mainly crab!! Not a lot of bread or fillers), mashed potatoes and green beans. My husband had the special- Tuna, baked potato and green beans. The food was delicious and served quickly. We were very pleased with the green beans! They appeared to be freshly picked and were cooked just right! Overall- great experience and would eat here again!

The food is very good, but the attraction is the view of Murrell's Inlet at sundown. Magnificent. When the weather cools down, I'd love to dine on the deck, but when we are usually in town (July/Aug) it's not an option, though it's a great place for a drink. The bar and wait staff are also always friendly and efficient.

THE VIEW IS GREAT, EVEN THOUGH WE DID NOT CATCH A DECENT SUNSET. PARKING IS DIFFICULT ON A BUSY NIGHT. Food was good, esp the she crab soup. ONE THING ABOUT OUR SERVER...SHE GAVE US THE CHECK BEFORE WE ASKED OR IT, AND NEVER ASKED IF WE WANTED COFFEE OR DESSERT. THOUGHT THAT WAS ODD.

Great bourbon choices; All the food was seasoned well. Fried lobster w/crab cake on top was delish; Fried onion loaf w/blue cheese dip is crazy good; Sour dough bread, she crab soup, mussels and salad were perfect. VISIT THIS PLACE.

Restaurant was noisy and air conditioning was not working very well. Our group sweated our way thru dinner we were toooo hoooot to stay for dessert. My grouper francese had poor presentation for $25 dinner. Three 3 by 3 inch pieces and the waiter did not bring us water or get my potato right.
