I love to go out have drinks and small bites with friends at this place. It gets a bit crowded, rightly so, but the atmosphere is superb and the service is outstanding.

We have been to Gulfstream a few times, but this time was the perfect time for us. First stop on a 3 day R&R from work on a rainy day. Sitting at the oyster bar and watching the kitchen at work was a good start. Having two Bloody Marys to slow down the day was good, and the food was... More

Very comfortable & warm atmosphere. The outdoor dining & cocktails is very special and wonderful. Sometimes (usually weekends) bar and outdoor area gets too crowded for comfort. Food and service are usually good & dependable..

You must, I repeat, MUST go to Gulfstream. When you arrive order the rosemary biscuits; for dessert enjoy the tres leches cake. Everything in between is personal preference. Enjoy!

We dine here for lunch and dinner as a couple as well as with friends and family. The food, service, and atmosphere is terrific. If you love fresh fish and oysters, this is the place. Fun to sit outdoors on a warm sunny day and the inside booths are generous and comfortable. The Bar is always busy and the staff... More
