Went to Gulfstream Café for veterans day. Can't say enough for what these people do for veterans. Lobster with sfuffed crabmeat! for free! I frequent this restaurant a lot especially Sunday brunch. Great service too. Thank you. Never disappointed.

Great atmosphere with views of the Inlet and outside seating. Serve Alaskan Crab legs in addition to others. Most seafood dishes are good and they have early bird specials. If its warm enough set outside. Great bar also.

Wow! Be sure to check out the Sunday brunch buffet here. Wait times can be a bit long, but, if you come before noon, you can beat the bulk of the after church crowd. Lovely view of the marsh and creek from the balcony and all the windows in the back of the restaurant.The food was outstanding! Buffet included scrambled... More

We met another couple for dinner one evening. Gulfstream is in Georgetown and on Murrells Inlet but on the opposite site of the water from the well-known row of restaurants in Murrells Inlet. As we sat down at our table, we noted to our waitress that we lacked utensils in the tableservice. We ordered drinks and nice warm bread was... More

Large selection of breakfast foods, salads, lunch items and a make-your-own Bloody Mary bar that includes everything you can think of. Fun lunch, enjoyed sitting outside. The view is pretty good as well.

I am a "local" for this restaurant, and this is a favorite of ours. Food is delicious. Views can't be beat. Service is always a fantastic. We love the oyster shooters for an appetizer. Crab cakes are great. My daughter is not a seafood lover and she always gets the Chicken Parmesan. My husband loves the grouper. Reservations suggested, we... More

The quality of the food here is excellent, service is very good, ask for Ashley, and the water views are so nice. The Sunset Menu offers an entree, salad, side, drink, and a wonderful loaf of sourdough bread. Gulfstream is our favorite restaurant in the Myrtle Beach area. It is an upscale dining experience with white tablecloths and candlelight.

We have eaten at the Gulfstream Cafe twice...once for dinner, recently for Sunday brunch. Not being a huge buffet fan, the brunch buffet here was certainly diverse and seemed to be popular with all of the guests. I preferred having dinner here at sunset. The quality of seafood was excellent, the service friendly and attentive, and the views of the... More
