Excellent!

This restaurant is excellent! Decor is modern and nicely done, and the views from the patio are beautiful. The food is good and large portions. Definitely worth visiting if you are in Myrtle Beach.

After a bike ride, we decided to give the Gulfstream Cafe a try. It turned-out to be what was needed (but unexpected) - a buffet. The buffet was serving-up bacon, eggs, sausage, cheese grits, biscuits and gravy, seafood, and also has a freshly-made omelet station with a Bloody Mary Bar, too. With the food plentiful, and the service being what... More

Food is quality and individually prepared, wait staff is friendly and helpful in working with your needs. They have a good Sunday brunch and... More

On our recent family vacation 16 of us went to eat here. We were quickly seated at our reservation time. They had choices sufficient for all of us. I had the blackened Mahi-Mahi and it was properly cooked and tasty. The Caesar salad was just average. The service was good also.

Have a wonderful early bird for $12.95 with superb service. The two petite filets were a real bargain and delicious. You don't need an appetizer, but if you go for the onion ring loaf with blu cheese you will be happy you did.

We had chosen this restaurant to celebrate Mothers Day with 4 generations. We found nothing spectacular about the food especially given the pricing. There are many other restaurants to choose from where you can get exceptional food and service for less or similar prices. I would say the dish that was the best was the stuffed lobster which I had.... More

We had a fantastic meal with a potential disaster. I told the waitress that I had a nut allergy and she said she would make sure the slivered almonds were not in my salad. Got my salad and started eating it thinking it had sesame seeds on it, but it was the almonds. Alerted waitress and there was no concern... More

My family loves to travel to Garden City throughout the year. We especially love ordering take out from Gulfstream Cafe. The service is always quick and the food is alway plentiful. We would recommend this for any one in the area.

excellent view if you get a good table. Nothing special about the food. Fun brunch. Wish it were a little more than typical fried food.
