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 their seasonal Oyster Roasts or watch the sunset on the rooftop deck, all wildly popular (and Instagram-worthy).

The Gulfstream is an institution in the southern end of the Grand Strand. It is known for its good food and stunning views of the sunset over the marsh. The service and quality have been kept at a high level even when others have succumbed to the Pandemic. The Early Bird menu, in particular, is an outstanding value. You won’t be disappointed.

Excellent food, average service (largely due to condensed staff) and great ambiance. I would definitely eat there again and recommend to others.

This place is great. Smaller menu but everything was really good. It is right on the water and has great views. There is a 2nd floor bar and patio. Get a drink and enjoy the view. Most of us got the seafood platter and everything on it was really good. My daughter got the chicken dish which came with mashed potatoes, green beans, and gravy.

It was a birthday dinner. We dropped off a cake to be served. We were not told of a $25 fee at all. It was on our bill. We could have brought it ourselves if we had known this. They wouldn’t compensate when we complained. We also had to wait 45 plus minutes for our drinks. The appetizers came out before the drinks. And for the price of the meal, it is not worth it all. The is the second time we have had a bad experience this summer. A whole tray of waters was dropped on my back. Our server never said a word. Customer service is not in their best interest.

Today was just ok. We have ate here many times in the past. The brunch is smaller than it used to be, no omelet station. You could order an omelet but your choices included vegetables only no meat unless our Server was wrong. We may go back but not for the brunch

We were in Pawleys Island on vacation. Food was very good. Really liked the flounder. Not too much breading. Waitress was first day on job but did very well.
Bar service was a little slow. We had two different glasses of white wine. Neither was very good. My wife ordered a Riesling but the wine we got was not very sweet.
Price was good value for the money. Good decor and not too loud. No wait to be seated as we had a reservation and no line. I would go back.
