The food and service was good. We sat at a table for two on the upper level. The table where we were seated is in front of a HVAC duct (located next to the floor and blows across the floor.) The AC was on and our legs and feet were frozen. We reported the problem and were told the temperature... More

We were visiting a friend in Pawley's Island and she brought us here. We really enjoyed the seafood and the views are lovely. We did end up sitting inside, because it was a little cool to be outside - my only problem with being inside is that it was extremely dark and that made it difficult to see/read the menu!... More

My sister had eaten at Gulfstream before, so while visiting Surfside Beach, SC, she recommended we go there for our Dad's 84th birthday. I made reservations through Open Table. It was confirmed immediately. I had asked in the reservation for an excellent table since we were celebrating his birthday. When we arrived we were warmly greeted, and then seated at... More

Excellent She Crab soup! Service average. Mussels are very disappointing. After removed from the shell all of the meat was about the size of a silver dollar. I took a picture because it's so ridiculous

This waterfront restaurant is famous with locals....it's their first choice. We were recommended to attend the early bird dining which was very nice meal and the cost was very reasonable. No wonder it is voted best with a view, it is right on Murrells inlet. We will go back again.

Every year we visit the Gulfstream while in Garden City on vacation. Every year we come away very satisfied! For the 2nd year in a row, we were greeted by our server Randy. Randy is extremely professional yet very friendly and welcoming! (We will request him when I return in a couple weeks for our guys golf trip!). The service... More
