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). *Please note: Guests are permitted to park in any open space on our shared lot.

    I was there for my 75th birthday celebration with out of town relatives and good friends. I called for our reservations two weeks in advance for seating by the window. When we arrived we were not greeted very professionally by the hostess. She told us that we could wait for the window seats, but had no clue as to how long that would be however she had a snippy attitude and when we didn't want to sit in the middle of the room it escalated even further. We decide to sit upstairs. When our server came over it was apparent that she had an issue with us as well. We ordered our dinners, the food was good as usual. When I asked for steak sauce she literally gave me an empty bottle and said" Well I guess you got the bottom of the bottle". There was not enough for a piece of meat!! She never brought over another bottle!! My guests were shocked to say the least. Our server never came to see if our water glasses were empty. The icing on this cake was she brought the check over and never asked if we wanted coffee or dessert!! My sister spoke with the manager one hour prior to our reservations to confirm a window table and special dessert for my birthday. Very unprofessional with attitude!!!

    Did not get a table at window but against a wall with no view. The waitress, Kimmie was friendly and knowledgeable but service was pretty slow (not her fault; too busy and not enough staff). Food was good, but dressing on salad was not what I ordered.

    Rarely can you find a place to dine that offers ambiance and delicious food. Gulfstream cafe has it all. The food was delicious. Our server, Tony, was very attentive. He was quick to deliver whatever we needed. It was my birthday and he brought a delicious piece of key lime pie with a candle to help us celebrate. It is an all around great place to dine with a spectacular view at sunset!

    Gulf Stream Cafe great view! Very good service Food was good. Tuna tartare appetizer was excellent. Salmon entree was mediocre- everyone overcooks the salmon every where in SC so I should just get used to it and order something else. But, I keep trying! My husband had the low country boil which was overly spicy but the server did warn him when he ordered it so I am not complaining Just saying. Food is Average ly good The indoor temperature of the restaurant was very cold so I won’t go back there until the summer.

    Had had a 6pm reservation on Valentine’s Day. We arrived about 5:30, checked in and went upstairs to grab a drink at the bar before being seated. Went back to the hostess area at 5:55pm and were promptly seated with a view of the Marshwalk and sunset. We both ordered salmon which was fantastic and reasonably priced. The meal and setting was perfect. The only miscue was I ordered a vodka drink to nurse while dinner was being prepared. For whatever reason it took forever (the bar was busy) and when I casually mentioned to our waitress, she got a little huffy. I apologized, saying I was just inquiring as it was a while and our food was coming out. Shortly thereafter, someone brought the drink and a couple minutes later, a second one showed up. I explained I already had the drink and she took the 2nd drink away. I let it go and we enjoyed a very nice meal. We will definitely be coming back as the atmosphere and food are terrific.

    Excellent food had the strip steak and the early bird medallions with baked potatos for both. We also had salads, bottle of The Federalist Cab all excellent. Service was great by bartender who juggled bar and tables flawlessly. The Sunset view is amazing so if you are in the area get on the waiting list and enjoy a great grub and view.

    I was not happy where we were sitting. Upstairs - I stare at the bar the entire time and my husband starred at a wall. The mahi was excellent. Salmon good. Thought if we had a reservation we would have been sitting down stairs so at least we could look out at the marsh. Thank you
