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).

Our server, Vanessa, was so helpful and sweet! Kenzie was also extremely knowledgeable when we stopped her to ask about the menu. I highly suggest asking for Vanessa or Kenzie when dining here. Great experience!

Great food and service as always, probably the 7th or 8th Thanksgiving we've had here! Excellent price value, great food, all home made and served piping hot. Great service (Kat), extremely pleasant and attentive, especially considering it was a Holiday. Highly recommend!

We have dined at Gulf Stream over the years and are never disappointed. This was our first Thanksgiving meal and it was great! The volume of food was more than enough and the food was very hot (a great thing!) when it reached our table. Service was timely including our bar order. This is a great moderately priced restaurant with a great location for a water dining experience.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving day meal here during the midday rush. We had a beautiful window-side view and a lovely time. The food was plentiful and quite delicious. The green beans and carrots were on par with any New York restaurant. The stuffing/dressing was a bit pre-packed. All in all the food was delicious and we all had a great time.

The fresh grouper was amazing though quite pricey at nearly $35 including 2 sides. I am not clear as to why a salad can not be chosen as a side without a $3.95 up charge. Ambiance here is stunning with candlelight and magnificent marsh views. Service overall was acceptable, but when arriving for our reservation, we waited about 5 minutes in a restaurant with dozens of open tables. It seemed as though they were only using certain tables in a rotation? The floors in the entry were sticky also. Even with my few complaints, this is a great choice for dinner in the Inlet away from the chaos of the Marshwalk ...strongly recommend.

We went to dinner at Gulf Stream whole down at Surfside Beach at a family's house. We have been there before. We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and they were very thoughtful and made us a card and have us both a glass of champagne!! It was very special. Food was pretty good. Thank you for a nice evening!

Thank you so much for your free meals to Veterans! Even though the place was packed for dinner on Veterans Day it was run with top notch servers and the food was wonderful and delicious.The she-crab soup is the best I have ever had from any other restaurant. Would recommend this restaurant !

It was really crowded as this is a popular dining spot. It has a great location on the water. Service was fine and the food was good. My only negative comment is that the wine list no longer contains a Zinfandel.

This was my second time eating at Gulfstream Cafe, the first was back in June and I had a seafood special that they were offering that evening; it was absolutely delicious! However, this time I tried the 9oz filet and I can’t say the same. It had a burnt flavor, yet it wasn’t charred so I’m not sure why it tasted the way it did. Others in our party also got the filet and were happy so maybe mine was a fluke. Even though I wasn’t pleased with my steak I will be back, this place has one of the most amazing views across the marsh and boat dock area, especially during sunset. Next time I’ll get one of the seafood dishes.

We have had Sunday brunch twice. The food has been consistently good as well as the service. It does get busier after 12, and reservations are definitely a plus. Gulf Stream offers great views of the marsh and inlet for a really peaceful morning.

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.

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
