This was our first time at the Gulfstream but our fourth trip to Carolina Beach. We had polite southern hospitality service. We ordered the spinach and cheese omelet and the chopped steak and eggs (over easy). Even though the chopped steak was really a ground beef pattie, I loved it. They bring out A1 sauce and that just made it... More

Reviews sounded good so we tried it. Will not be going back. Service was slow. After 20 minutes the salads arrived. They were good another 20-25 minutes dinner arrived. It was medicore at best. Mine was the most flavorable, and that was the stuffed flounder. Crabcakes were flat, with very little seasoning. My nephew got the chicken parmesan, he loves... More

Went here three times last week. All three times were consistent and good. Prices are super great. Wait times were short. Servings were huge, especially on my friends pasta plate and my shrimp plate. Such a variety you could eat here every day and always have a different cuisine. Highly recommend.

Food was not edible....it was burnt and dried out.I told the waitress and she just shrugged and walked away. As the owner was taking my money I asked "Would you eat this"? He didn't answer.

We are sorry and surprised to hear that you had this experience at Gulfstream. We work very hard to ensure that every customer is satisfied. If any of our staff understood that you were unhappy, I am confident they would have responded in a much more concerned and courteous manner than what you describe. We know that we are not... More

Just off the main highway (actually on a street just behind the McDonalds) sits this unassuming, low-key jewel. Based on two lunches, I can testify to the fresh and satisfying shrimp salad, crisp fried clams, succulent and lightly breaded flounder sandwich, even a grilled cheese number, all quite good. Also offered is a wide variety of side dishes: the slaw... More

The restaurant was within walking distance of our motel. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious and the staff was very kind. There were people coming in at closing time and they seated them with a smile. Kind & friendly with good food

Started off well...party of 5 Seated quickly, drink orders taken, drinks received, food orders taken and then we waited and waited. 45 minutes to get our meals. A guy came by and refilled our sweet teas with unsweetened tea. Average food and portions, not bad but nothing special. May have tasted better had we not been so frustrated with the... More
