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).

I went for Sunday brunch and it was amazing. Food was spectacular. I felt a little uncomfortable being me and my party were the only black people and kept getting odd looks but the staff made up for the other customers. Food was amazing. View was stupendous. I would definitely recommend

We enjoyed an early evening dinner with my wife’s parents who are regular “snowbird” residents of Myrtle Beach. This was the second time in as many years we’ve eaten here. The view of the bay is great, spectacular sunsets, service is attentive, knowledgeable and home style. The menu provides several good options. What to say - a great choice for a cozy family dinner. I’d also choose it for a romantic dinner with my wife.

Superb food , parmesan-crusted grouper, hot baked potatoes, delicious asparagus or green beans! Decadent desert of 7-layer chocolate cake that was to the moon and back! Excellent waitress, so friendly and competent! Wonderful meal, view, and delightful treat!

We arrived earlier than our reservation time on Valentine’s Day and we were able to be seated. The service was fast and the food was excellent. I hope we can return the next time we are visiting the area.

We enjoyed our evening for a Valentine dinner. The service was great and our server was very nice. The meal was good but we have had better for less money. All in all we had a very good evening and will probably try it sometime in the future.

Spectacular from beginning to end . Unfortunately I do not recall our servers name but he did an outstanding job. The meal was especially good, everything was prepared perfectly. The ambiance was lovely, an upscale rustic that was very warm and inviting. We could not have asked for anything better. WE WILL BE BACK!

We always make it a point to go to Gulfstream whenever in Myrtle Beach. The shrimp and grits appetizer is a par ocular favorite, it all of the fish I have had there has been great, as are the salads. And we had great service on our last visit.

Our experience was completely delightful. Our waiter, Jason, was excellent. Thanks to Jason who made us feel very special for our birthday celebration with our friends. The food was absolutely delicious. The only small criticism was that the tasty creamed spinach side dish was not very warm in temperature. But even so, it was delicious. The view of the lights from Murrells Inlet across the water made for a really nice evening scene while dining.

When we come to the beach we always make sure we eat at Gulfstream. Good food and good atmosphere. Neither of us are big eaters so we enjoy the early menu with smaller portions.

While not overwhelmed, the food was ok. Our server was good. Two persons replenishing the buffet struggled over refilling French toast and ended up dropping pieces on the floor, while I waited to serve myself.
However, upon arrival at the restaurant very few tables were occupied. I had requested a table with a waterfront view. I was led to probably the worst table in the restaurant while most were not occupied. This table was in direct line of the entryway. It was definitely very close to the table next to it by the window. On the coldest day of the year, with a reservation, I was given a table that literally Was located too close to guests at the next table as well as getting a cold draft each time the door opened for new guests to enter. I felt I was sitting in the hallway. I asked to change our table and was accommodated although less than enthusiastically by the hostess.

I have been to this restaurant before and I was quite impressed with food quality and service. I found this New Year's Day experience disappointing.

Gulf Stream is a must when in the area. I've never had a bad meal there. Last dined there on NYE and the service and food was great. Staff is very friendly and attentive, even on a busy night like NYE.

the buffet was terrible and definitely not worth the amount charged....burned chicken, no one at the omelet station, no menu service at 2PM, and the only seafood was fried cod chunks and mussels. scrambled eggs, over cooked bacon and link sausage, bagels, fruit salad pretty much sums it up. WE WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN. we didn't complain, merely chalked it up to experience. Did I mention this was New Year's eve?
