Gulfstream Cafe Ratings and Reviews

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.

Very nice experience with the exception of the hostess giving our table to another couple who came in about 10 minutes after us. Gulfstream did make up for the mistake in an unexpected, very generous way. Food is delicious and they are excellent at not rushing the courses.

The special that night was blackened tuna, and 2 of our 6 in our party ordered it, one rare, and one well-done. Neither were blackened. One was rare, and the well done was actually medium rare. You would think that with such a limited menu, and the specials being promoted by the wait staff, that they could cook these to order and correctly. But, they weren't. Everyone else's food was mediocre. We told another group who stays with us and usually goes to Gulf Stream to skip it this year, the first time in 5 years. They did skip it. We wont' be back either.

Live music which is what a lot of restaurants are doing. Maybe a guitar or even ukulele in the bar area or on the deck outside. It is also noisy, but the food and service was very good. I would definitely go back.

This is one of the best restaurants in the area. It has an amazing Murrells Inlet view, but it is across the sound away from the mega bar scene -- and no restaurant on the inlet side compares with this one. While it is very difficult to find true fine dining in the area, this place is very solid. The fried flounder was the best I've ever had (but hardly a fine dining selection), but the crab cakes and steaks get high marks. Make a reservation. They get busy.

Great food, outstanding service, very nice view.
We returned to this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary with my wife's brother and sister-in-law. I had mentioned the occasion in the Open Table reservation request and, not only did we get a coveted corner window table with a very nice view, the restaurant had a congratulations card waiting for us on the table. Very nice touch!
The four of us each ordered a different entrée. While the kitchen didn't quite get my filet mignon butterflied and cooked correctly, I had no complaints and enjoyed it very much. The others in our party found their meals very enjoyable, too.
Our server was very friendly and helpful, and was attentive without hovering. He was concerned about the kitchen's mistake and, without it being requested or necessary, comp'd our desserts.
Overall, we were very, very pleased with our visit. We will definitely be back on our next visit to Myrtle Beach.

Excellent Alaskan King Crab legs- perfect portion and perfect price- this is the only place where you can watch the sun set over the water, which is beautiful. Lots of Windows. Great view. Restaurant was warm on a hot night. Wish AC was stronger. We had reservations for two and ended up with 2 terrible table choices. On in the center of the room and next by the door the waiters went in and out constantly to the deck.
Our food took forever to get but we were given a free dessert which was very kind. I'd go back again

We've been talking about going for brunch here for awhile and we finally made it here last week. The spread was incredible. The food was delish. The atmosphere is laid back with panoramic views. We had a great server who was very attentive but not 'on us'. The price point was great. We really enjoyed everything. We will definitely go back and highly recommend eating here.

I have been to this restaurant many time and bragged about it to my friends. My friends were visiting from FLorida and brought them there for you last night. The service was so slow. It took an hour and a half to get our food and it was cold. I was very disappointed.

Had not been here for ten years. Menu now very very small. Food was good but pricey. $42 for lobster with crab. $4 extra for side salad. Service not what you would expect for upscale prices and setting Beautiful sunset.
Will return for drinks but not food. Too many other good places.

Our server seemed very inexperienced and rushed us through the meal. He did not present specials or ask if we had questions regarding the menu. After bringing the check, he tried to take it 3 times before it was ready and did not make any apology for rushing us out of the restaurant.

Excellent service. We requested a window table and they complied with my reservation request. The table was perfect - beautiful view! We felt "special" - they even had a "happy birthday" card on our table for me. I appreciated the thought. Wonderful night.

Gulfstream counts on its location and view. Seafood platter was over salted. Blackened Tuna was cooked on one side only with center barely at temperature. Table had a good view but ambient temperature was high relative to the rest of the place and uncomfortable.

Food was just OK. There are much better places in the area to have seafood. Tuna was not the best grade although they said it was sushi grade, scallop platter had a BIG baked potato, hush puppies and a few small scallops, grouper was just OK.
It's a good place for a cocktail and to watch the sunset from the deck.

They have excellent crab cakes, with basically no breaking-all crab meat. We ate some of the best fried shrimp ever, especially in the Firecracker Shrimp appetizer. Overall they have delicious menu with just enough variety, and it is a great venue for family dining. We will definitely make the drive again during the next vacation to this area.
