My husband and I had breakfast here two mornings in a row. I had shrimp and grits the first morning, and biscuits and gravy the second morning. Both were excellent. My husband loved their chicken fried steak. Service was exceptional both times.

We enjoyed a breakfast, and decided to come back another day for lunch. The highlight for me was the shrimp and grits (excellent), and my wife most enjoyed ham with pineapple. Very friendly service. Will go back when in the area!

If you are in the area this is a great place to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner. Food is always good. Very pleasant wait staff and prices are very reasonable. Generous portions of seafood or country type cooking. Something for everyone.

Gulf Stream restaurant has been a fixture in Carolina Beach for years. They offer breakfast all day and offer a wide variety of meals including a daily special at reasonable prices. We go here at least once a month.

Eric's is a must. The best burger, crinkle fries and fountain soda this side of the Mississippi. Great ambiance. Eric is a true southern gentlemen - Greets his guests, asks if everything is okay and then he moves long. You will not be disappointed.
