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).

    My husband and I have been coming to Myrtle Beach for over 11 summers- each year we look on open table for new hidden gems in the area. Once again we hit the jackpot. Gulfstream Cafe was amazing. It has a soft quaint feel. The food was spectacular and we had a reservation so there was no wait time.

    The food was ok. I would not say it was worth the cost. It would have been nice to have a salad or any green. I think they could use some help.

    Love going to this place. We had a reservation, it was on time and provided a window view. However, the paper they put on table was left from precious diners , napkin was dirty and no table knives. They were busy and the food was very good. We will go back…but not certain what he they didn’t clean/set our table properly; they took great care with the others we watched them set. PS no pineapple juice in pina calada.

    This is a nice restaurant. It’s also an understaffed restaurant. We had a very very frazzled waiter who continually made excuses for his absences and late service. He was nice but the story got old. The food is very good but they need to work on the service. We had the calamari which was very good. Entrees were also very good. We ordered the swordfish special and the crab cakes.

    Sooo busy when we first got there. Told we would be texted when our table was ready. 15 mins later we checked on what was the status and were told they had texted us a while ago. Never happened. Waitress came to the table two times to give water and a drink order with 10 minute waits between each visit, finally returns with bread, no plates on the table. Finally got plates when another server brought our hush puppies and we asked him for them. Food finally arrived about a half hour later. Food was delicious. Our reservation was for 7:45 and we were finally eating at 9. Rough start to the visit. I would want to go back but probably never at that time again.

    The restaurant is nice and has great views of the inlet, but our dining experience was less that satisfactory based on large family group that had children which were running around the table playing “tag you’re it”. They were running and screaming, and the wait staff nor management did nothing to control this. It was frustrating for my family and those seated around us. Our waitress, though pleasant, never delivered our beverage but we found asking three times for condiments and straws seem to do the trick. Overall disappointing experience.

    Service was excellent and timely yet not over bearing, even thought he restaurant was crowded. Food was excellent as always. Our table had the she-crab soup, the petite filets, and fish of the day broiled off of the early bird and regular menus. All were very good. Worth the drive and the view across the marsh was spectacular with the early sunset.

    One hour plus wait for our meal after being seated. Good now we’ll prepared. We are disappointed 25 year plus customers, so hate to write a negative review but it was not a good experience for our “last night at the beach … nice dinner out”. Manager comped our meal, and we paid a normal tip to the server. They were apparently way understaffed. Manager said they only had two people working in the kitchen.

    Had a short wait while they prep our table. We went upstairs to the bar for a drink while we waited. I don't recall the bar maids name but she was terrific. Great personality. The meal was fantastic. Service was excellent for a party of 8. We will be back again on our next trip.

    My grandson and his wife celebrated their 1st wedding anniversary On Sunday. I made the reservation and asked for an indoor table with a nice view and mentioned their anniversary. The staff warmly greeted them, sat them at a great table and gave them complimentary glasses of champagne. They told me their meals were delicious. They were very impressed and will return on their next trip to the beach. Thank y'all for making their romantic night out just perfect. My dear husband and I enjoyed our romantic dinners at your restaurant for many years. Grandma Karen

    First time to Gulfstream Café. The views and table settings were nice. Restaurant was quiet and relaxing. The food for the most part was very good. We didn't care for the hushpuppies but we understood they are top sellers so it must have been just us. Salads were nicely sized and included lots of toppings. The filet and shrimp were delicious as well as the fried grouper. The service was as we expected. Restaurant was short staffed with servers and our server was over extended with tables. It wasn't her fault. We just appreciated that she wanted to work and we were able to sit down in a restaurant and be waited on. We tipped over the 20% because we wanted her to know that her hustle didn't go unnoticed. We plan on retuning in October!

    My family and I dine here about twice a month, and have been coming here for many years. I always get the steak medallions with mash potatoes but I don’t like the other sides, green beans or cream spinach. So, I always ask to substitute with hush puppies. The server quickly told me no, no substitutes. I told her that they always let me do that. So when the meal is delivered, I’m served a double serving of mash potatoes. I guess we will have to mark this restaurant off our list. Bye, bye Gulf Stream.

    We dined here for the first time as a recommendation. We had a reservation at 7:00 and sat down at 7:25, we understand durning this busy time of year. Once seated our waitress seemed nice but not interested. We ordered drinks, she forgot one of them and then ordered apps….those came out quickly and were so great! We then ordered entrees and proceeded to wait close to an hour before getting our entrees. I was told one of the entrees was no longer available (Roasted Chicken) because of how it is prepared, which I understood because I work in the industry but then after a very long delay we got our entrees and my best entree was what was ordered. Our waitress very rarely checked back on us to refill beverages and such which is not ok when they are automatically adding 20% gratuity to a party of 6 or more. We had a party of 8 so it made me think that she knew she was getting auto gratuity so the level of service didn’t matter. We again loved the food and atmosphere and will for sure go back but were not happy with the delay of service.

    Great table, always a great view and great service. Ordered chilled seafood platter but they were out of shrimp ( was was ok). Instead ordered tuna tartare and Buffalo prawns and they were two of the very best single appetizers I’ve ever had! Fried whole red fish, and crab cakes everyone loved.
