Seafood
For more than 30 years, Gulfstream Cafe has been a sought-after spot for birthdays, anniversaries and more thanks to the picturesque waterfront view and authentic coastal cuisine. The laid-back atmosphere at this Garden City institution complements the fresh seafood and southern favorites, choice options include broiled Lobster Tail, creamy She-Crab Soup and jumbo lump Crab Cakes. Head back for Sunday brunch, seasonal Oyster Roast or watch the sunset on the rooftop deck, all wildly popular (and Instagram-worthy).

Food was wonderful and service was great. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Reservation request for window table was honored and we enjoyed the beautiful inlet sunset. Only thing we would change, is appetizer menu to include other choices. No one at table seen any Apps they really wanted.

Too expensive for the experience. Atmosphere was great, albeit showing signs of age and not impeccably clean. Service was adequate but not memorable. Food was disappointing. Attention to detail on preparation wasn’t high enough for the prices.

Excellent food and very good service. Great views. Only complaint was when they started moving furniture in the area we were sitting in for the breakfast buffet the next morning. A little noisy.

Excellent food and service. The only bad thing was we were seated next to a door to the deck. It was chilly, windy and a group of 4 decided to ear on the deck. Waiters and people were going in and out the door and I was very cold and had to put my wrap on while I ate. I was still cold. When we left I suggested to the hostess that they not seat anyone st that table when anyone was outside. Her reply was a smirk, not an I’m sorry v

We always go to the Sunday brunch plus at least one early bird meal during the week we are in Myrtle Beach. A favorite place among our friends. Good food, friendly staff and decent prices. Always recommend to anyone coming to Myrtle Beach.

I found this restaurant to be extremely overpriced for the product. The lobster tail was overcooked and tough. The Cioppino was swimming in pasta sauce. There are many choices in that area, but I was told this one was the best. Perhaps it was an off night. There were eight of us in the party and a five people were dissatisfied with their Seafood meals.

Valentine's Day a big one for most. The meal was great. A bit of a limited menu but the grouper was amazing as was rt he filet and crab cakes. All of our party of 5 raved about the food, service and ambiance. Excellent choice for a great dinner

Our waiter, Jesse, was very attentive and provided excellent service.two of us had grouper Francaise which was mostly breading and lacking in flavor. Sides, salad , and appetizer of Calamari were great. While it was a holiday and very busy, we did not feel rushed.

We were excited to be dining at the Gulfstream Cafe for Valentines Day. We made a reservation, and were seated within 3 minutes of arriving. We wwre seated at a nice table with a great view of the marsh. The host left a one page menu with us, which we were not happy to see was not the early dining menu which we specifically chose our reservation time for. When we asked the server, he verified that that menu was invalid for Valentines Day. We really should have left at that point, since there was no mention on the website that I noticed that the early dining did not apply. We decided to stay. Our meals were good. My husband said his steak was excellent. The baked potatoes were overdone, as they became mashed potatoes after dissolving the butter. Service was good. One thing that was most annoying, there was rock music playjng rather loudly. Now I'm a rock music fan, that's not the issue, it just seemed out of place at a nicer restaurant.

Normally we get great service at your restaurant, but the lady server there was not as nice and the hostess was not accommodating at all. All we wanted was a table away from the door and it was like we were pulling teeth. We will definitely go back, just won’t have as high expectations.

We have gone during the early dining session and it is always so crowded....this night we chose to do a later dine time. Very quiet. Good food, service, etc. no complaints. It was dark but the lights across the Marsh were lovely
