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

    I ordered the grouper which was delicious; however, my friend ordered it as well. I had 3 little pieces. She had 3 bigger pieces (two of mine equaled one of hers). Needless to say I paid the same price but got less. Our server appeared to be friendly sort of. Having said that the grouper was delicious.

    Good as usual was great. Our waitress was not so great. My second glass of wine took her so long that I finished meal. Asked her three times for tartar sauce again by time I got it I was done meal. Food was served by another waitress I never saw her serve any of her tables. Food was not warm. I noticed so much as it's the first time it happened there We will return but request different server

    I made a reservation for the main dining room. We arrived 15 minutes early and were led upstairs. Having never been here I wasn’t sure what the upstairs was going to be like. The table had no view due to the location. We were Seated in front of an air conditioner vent blowing cold air on our feet. The worst part was my 90 year old mother having to climb the stairs to what turned out to be the bar area. Very disappointing. I’m sorry I didn’t speak up to say this was not the table/section we drove 20 minutes to be seated at.

    We were celebrating our vacation, and booked a reservation the prior week requesting a window table. We arrived 15 minutes early and were told we could either sit outside or upstairs, that no lower level window seats were available. I witnessed another 2-person party who arrived after us as they were escorted to a lower level window table. Further, there were 3 other vacant tables by a window that appeared available abc ready for seating. This was disappointing, as our upstairs table was right by the doorway to the deck. Would like to understand why that happened. We eat at Gulfstream at least 3 times each year. Not sure we will return.

    We liked it so much we went back to celebrate our anniversary. I asked For a "rusty nail", not on the drink menu, and the bar tender did not disappoint.. We took our granddaughters and we were all very pleased, especially the waitress was catering to all our wishes. And of course, we were amazed by the key lime pie.

    Our 39th wedding anniversary. Our adult children unbeknownst to us had called ahead to the restaurant to take care of our tab. Great kids. Upon arriving the hostess checked us in and wished us a happy anniversary as did all the staff we interacted with. They say us at a table with a fantastic view of the marsh! After a cocktail we split the calamari appetizer which was cooked to perfection, tender, lightly fried no signs of oil at all. My wife had the Grouper franchise and loved it, I had the seafood cioppino it was excellent. The fresh bread was also excellent. Our server was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. The desserts looked great but honestly we were quite full from our meal as the portions were generous and the price reasonable. So all that and a beautiful sunset from their deck over the marsh it was outstanding. We are planning to go back to try their Sunday brunch next.

    We can always be assured of a great time, great food, and great service at Gulfstream. Only one glitch and that was that the hostess told us she called our name out3 times and seemed to blame us for not hearing her. Her attitude was that it wasn’t her fault that we weren’t seated yet. I was shocked and have never Been treated that way at Gulfstream. It was very loud in the restaurant and it seems to me that she could have taken a few steps and walked over to the 2 or 3 groups waiting to search for our party of 5. On the other hand the wait staff was excellent.

    The quality of the NY Strip Steak was NOT worth the price. Meat was tough to cut and chew. The Fried Scallops were SMALL and not prepared to GulfStream’s previous standards. The Baked Potatoes were NOT fresh NOR hot....just tasted warmed over and dried out!

    We had an amazing dinner at Gulfstream Cafe on the night of Mother's Day. My husband and I sat upstairs near the bar and had beautiful views of the water. We started our dinner with warm bread and a salad which were very tasty. Then our dinners arrived. My husband had the Cioppino and I enjoyed the Seafood Pasta. They gave very large amounts of seafood in both of our meals. The food was delicious and very filling. Service was excellent! We were too full to try dessert, maybe next time. You will not be disappointed if you come here. We always have an amazing meal here!

    The food was delish however I think they should rethink having buffets on holidays. They kept running out of food so the lines waiting for Food were ridiculous. I never went back up for what was not stocked because the line was insane. We had to ask our waiter to get us dessert because the line was that bad. I think they should do a pre fixed menu and bring a plate of desserts to the table at the end. I was sadly disappointed with the experience because the food was so good. I definitely didn’t get my monies worth

    Food and service were good but very long lines for the buffet. Also, they raised the price on Mother’s Day without any notice til we sat down. It should have been on the website and reservation site online. Actually, the price should not have been raised at all. Just because it is Mother’s Day? Not nice.
