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).

    Everyone's meal was good except mine. Ordered the scallops. Asked to have them not fried & thought they would be broiled in a butter sauce but they were not. They were very small & extremely dry & cold.

    Went there for the first time for our Anniversary and wasn’t very impressed. Food not that great, waitresses very busy. Never was checked on. Forgot our second beverage. Very overpriced for the food we got. We eat at very nice restaurants every weekend and this one was a very disappointing.

    We enjoyed our dinner very much. For those over 80 would have appreciated a quieter area. We were offered upstairs but steps are a problem for my husband. It was his birthday. Hard to talk over the noise. Beautiful location!

    Everyone in our party had nothing but complement’s concerning the food. Our waitress was very young and not acquainted with the different types of liquor. If you run out of the brand of liquor in a specific drink, the substitute should not be an upgrade charge, especially if the first one was the original liquor. Other than that extra charge, everything was perfect 🤩

    We sat for over an hour before being served. A cold glass for a bottle was offered and we had to remind our server over 3 times to get the cold glass. Our food was over cooked. We were never offered dessert or if we wanted more wine, etc. Our evening was a large disappointment.

    Food was very good. The only thing we did not think was up to par was the hushpuppies - this is only our opinion. All other food was cooked perfectly and was delicious - we both had the Filet and Shrimp dinner. We would definitely dine here again.

    We had reservations at 5:15 pm as to order the early bird menu for our meals. All of our food was excellent and the server Madison was delightful. The honey lime dressing, the fried scallops, hushpuppies and chocolate cake were very delicious. And the view is gorgeous! BUT The hostess was nasty and condescending to us. She made comments like "I hope you have a reservation " as we walked in the door, then made us wait and seated others before us. That truly marred our experience and made us wonder if all early bird patrons are treated this way. We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere but will think twice about returning.

    got there at 350pm reservaions for 4pm told to wait outside in the heat, next seated down stairs resv for up stairs on wedsite reason for resv was for my wifes birthday was not a mention of this by the staff, also the main concern of the staff upstairs 4/5 was getting ready for the evening, should have been done prior to opening had a table for 2 very small with candle and condiments no room for food. had to clear empty dishes and beerbottles to make room. Time to pay check system down told it would be a awhile after sitting at the table with empty dishes and looking at each other we went to the bar for a drink, it took another 45 min to1 hr before we had a partial check to pay, from the time the system went down it was total choas. Been there just a few weeks ago everything was fine bill was 350.00 with 4 of us. We are locals live in the inlet, maybe a drink not to be billed would have made the evening, not looking for a free ride, but just a courtesyor helped a liitle my wife told me not to comment on this, but neighbors have had some bad issues also, been there our 3rd time wont be a 4th

    We dine here often, but with the shortage of help recently we have seen the service fall below expectations. Happily, last night they were back to what we expect. Although tasked with many tables, our waitress, Cat, greeted us in a timely manner and took care of us with such a joyful spirit that it enhanced the experience. As usual the food was great - we split the seafood pasta and added a couple of salads.
