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.

    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.

    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.

    We love Gulf Stream….the early bird specials are amazing and the BEST value in the area. Found out Wednesday nights are the best time to go for less people. The Malbec wine was great …and we always finish with the delicious warm chocolate cake and ice cream!

    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

    We went in at 1:00pm expecting to eat dinner. Dinner wasn’t to start until 2:00pm. We decided to leave rather than wait an hour but the restaurant said they would make an exception for us and serve us dinner because we were celebrating my mom’s birthday. We thought that was really super that they did that for us. The food and the service was excellent. I give them an A+

    The Gulfstream restaurant has always been one of our favorites for us to return to each year and to bring new friends. This year wasn’t as good as it has been in the past. The food like the spinach and coffee were on the cold side. The filet mignon medallions were very dry and overdone not like asked for as medium. I hate to complain about these kind of things because sending food back just doubles the timeframe of sitting there and waiting while everyone else is eating their meal. You’ve got to do better!
