A Fun Place!

We had a great dinner here. The places is large so not too noisy. Food is great. Get a biscuit each.. Salads are all good as our the entrees. First bottle of wine has no corkage or lots of nice wines on the menu. Services wonderul! Plank roasted salmon was very good.

Very good food, ambience and service. Recommended for lunch and dinner, best to book, particularly in the evening.

My husband and I stopped by here while staying in NewPort and thought it was exceptional. We actually chose to sit at the bar and had three very attentive handsome young bartenders tend to us for the next hour or two. The wine that was suggested after I shared I liked a red wine was superb! We started with shrimp... More

Now this place has one of the best oysters I've ever had in my life, even though I don't eat oysters all that much because I find them insipid and tasteless this were phenomenal. The biggest prawns I've seen in my life, no questions asked, period. Nice selection of beers, scotch whiskey and every other liquor you are looking for.... More

A great choice for any dinning occasion! You won't go wrong with anything on the menu. The smoked salmon appetizer is fabulous and they have the best hot fudge Sunday on the South Coast!

Grupo of seven (friends) had dinner last night at Gulfstream and enjoyed all the food that was presented (a variety of appetizers followed by their cedar plank salmon.). Solid wine list which for us meant a few bottles of Caymus. Service was friendly and attentive.

Gulfstream is the place to be and be seen. The bar is always lively as well as the outdoor cocktail patio where you can enjoy a cigar if you are so inclined. The dining area is spacious with a beautiful nautical décor. Patio dining is also available far from the cocktail patio. The menu includes a variety of fresh seafood... More

The place was crowded when we came in and it was very noisy and loud. We got the already reserved table within a couple of Minutes and enjoyed looking the activities in the open kitchen meanwhile. The sea food was excellent. The beef was coal from the outside and therefore not really tasty. Just too long on the barbecue. I... More

Good food-fresh fish. Go early as it becomes very loud when crowded. Not a good place to talk. Busy bar. Portions can be small so ask server what comes with the dish. Everything is exra. Not a good place for children.

Consistently good with a fresh, innovative menu that is unpretentious. The hamburger is one of the best in town with daily fresh ground beef and accompanyments. Equally as good is the Fried Shrimp with fresh made cole slaw is without equall. Go and enjoy, you won't be disappointed.
