This is the second time we had Sunday Brunch at the Gulfstream Cafe. Price was reasonable for the selection at $12.95 pp. Selections included the usual omelettes made to order, bacon, sausage, French toast, grits, plus marinated chicken breast, mussels, just about anything you could want. The service in particular was friendly, professional and thorough. I would recommend highly for... More

Ate fried shrimp, flounder and oysters. Very good. Plus ate outside with a breeze and a waterway view that was fabulous. Good wine selection. Would definitely return.

My family has been going to the Gulf Stream Cafe for years during our family beach week. The restaurant itself is unique and the only one located south of the arcade area in Garden City. The view from the restaurant of Murrell's Inlet is wonderful, and a great place to watch the sunset. If you find yourself with a bit... More

This was a great place. If you get there between 4:00 and 5:30 P. M. there is an early evening special that has great food and great prices.

We went on a 9 day vacation and on the night before we left a friend of mine recommended Gulfstream Café. We made a reservation on the Open Table App for 7pm (Tues) and when we got there we were seated almost immediately. The food was priced fairly for what you got and let me say the Lobster w/crab meat... More

Repeat visits for early bird special and also Sunday brunch. Both are great values, service is impeccable, and the view is stunning. One of the best dining spots on the entire Grand Strand!

This restaurant is so nice with a view of the inlet. We had a window table. The food was spectacular and the service was outstanding.

The place is a little older, could stand a few updates but overall was really great food and a nice romantic evening for my husband and I. It is off the beaten path a little (which we liked). The waitstaff was friendly and the view rocked!
