Good flounder sandwich. Good fries. Great slaw. Service was prompt and the location provides a nice view. This place is spotlessly clean as well.

Came for breakfast on a busy Sunday morning. We were accurately quoted a 15 minute wait. The food was delicious and the service was really quick, but we didn't feel rushed at all. There were people who were quite impatient and rude while we waited outside, and they truly missed out on a great meal. Bring cash, as they only... More

This is a great little restaurant! The staff is very friendly and the menu has a nice variety of "home-cooked" choices and reasonable prices. After our first meal, my family didn't want to eat anywhere else so this was our breakfast and dinner place during most of our vacation. The seafood is lightly breaded, fresh and delicious. On Tuesdays, they... More

Visited with my daughter on an off season weeknight. Traffic was moderate. The name would leave you to believe this is primarily a Seafood place, especially given the locale, however the menu is varied, and the seafood almost takes the backseat. We are old school and we came to the beach and darn it we wanted seafood. My daughter ordered... More

Stopped in after church. The place is under a new owner and the food is very good and the staff is on the ball and quick with service. Prices are reasonable with many of the local favorites. Give them a try

Was going to stop here for an early lunch leaving the beach, but decided to get breakfast (last time we were here, got lunch which was good). It's not often you'll find fresh, homemade corned beef hash (usually it's out of a can). This was great! (although a bit salty for my taste, but was fine for others). Eggs over-medium... More

My husband and I ate at the Gulfstream Restaurant while staying for a night in Carolina Beach for our 13 year anniversary. The food was excellent. My husband loves corn beef hash and they make their own. He was very happy and said it was the best ever. I had french toast and country ham. It too was awesome! The... More

Had a wonderful breakfast while vacationing in Carolina Beach at this little place. It was very clean, reasonably priced and good food. Would recommend for breakfast!

We were looking for different places to try for breakfast. Someone local recommended this place. I'm glad we listened. There was so much food that my teenage son & his friend had to take half of it back to our condo! That doesn't happen often! The plates we ordered came with a mound of homefries. All the food we had... More

Went to the Gulfstream based on the reviews here, but was underwhelmed by their dinner offerings. My wife and I ordered the flounder with crab meat, and I spent the better part of the meal picking bones out of my mouth with every bite. So much so, I just gave up eating the flounder. Granted, certain fish are more prone... More

Ed T, Owner at GulfStream Restaurant, responded to this review

We are so sorry that you had this problem with the flounder at Gulfstream. We purchase our flounder already filleted and have not known of excessive bones being a problem. If you brought this issue to the attention of your server or the manager on duty, I am sure they would have offered you another selection and done everything possible... More
