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).

I love Gulf Stream for the beautiful view. The Sunday buffet food is terrible! Tasteless and unappealing sad to say.

We are here every October and eat at Gulfstream at least 6 times during the month. Sometimes more then that. We love it and been going there for 15 years.

We were going out with new neighbors for the first time and requested - and received - a nice table. We were right on the water with a lovely sunset over the Inlet. The food was great too! All in all it was a very pleasant night that we all enjoyed.

Amazing food, service and view!!! We went for our anniversary and upon sitting at the table there was an anniversary card addressed to us Plus they provided us with complimentary champagne. It was a really nice touch and we will definitely be planning to go back there anytime we are in the area again

Filet mignon was very salty, mushrooms that came with the salmon meal were unbearably salty.
Seating is very cramped and uncomfortable.
Be prepared to spend a lot of money

Pleasant experience with good food. The server was good in all aspects, but one.

We several times had to ask to have finished items removed.

Went for our anniversary dinner. We were greeted by the hostess with an anniversary card and were seated at a table by the window with a spectacular view. Our server, Cat was awesome. She was attentive and friendly. We were also treated to 2 glasses of complimentary champagne, what a nice touch. Our food was simply delicious. I had the stuffed lobster tail with crabmeat and my husband had the seafood platter, both were excellent. You don’t normally get excited about green beans but these were delicious!
Could not resist the chocolate layer cake, yummo!

We’ve been going to Gulfstream for 20 plus years at least twice per year, sometimes more often. This time was one of the worst service experiences we’ve ever had. Our server was unfriendly, inattentive, and slow. Actually one of her colleagues actually came to check on us twice and took our appetizer order. Food is always excellent but twice in the last year we’ve received subpar service.

Food was wonderful as always. ONly minus was it was a cloudy, raining evening when we were served and it was very very dark at our table. When everyone has to use the flashlight on their phone to read the menu its too dark !!!!
