On a recent trip to Myrtle Beach friends recommended that we try Gulfstream. It was MARVELOUS! Everything was delicious from the salad: crisp, cold, and some of the best bleu cheese dressing ever, through the filet mignon, to the chocolate mousse cake. And because we dined early, we had "early bird special" rational prices. Outstanding !!

The Gulfstream Cafe is a little out-of-the-way near the end of the Garden City Beach peninsula about 2 miles from the road coming in from US 17. The trip is worth it! The food is fresh and the portions are ample without being obscene. Smaller appetites can take advantage of the early evening menu available until 5:30 pm. But the... More

We ate here for our familybThanksgiving lunch. The food was excellent and plentiful and was priced very reasonable. Beautiful interior and wonderful view of the water from our table. Service was as good as it gets. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in the Garden City area.

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.
