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.

Have eaten here many times over the years and have never been disappointed with the food or the service. The best fried shrimp in town.

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.

The Wfie & I just got into town & I was wanted Pancakes. The home cooked Pancakes were the size of the Plate with eggs & sausage, & she had a plate of shrimp & fries. It was a great Meal and the Service was great. I highly recommend Gulfstream for a home cooked meal.

Very pricey. Charged extra for toast thought it came with the meal. Very busy. Waitress very average. At least I'm glad they had a parking lot where you didn't have to pay to park.

We stopped here for breakfast and wow it was so good. The grits are nice and creamy. The bacon cooked to perfection. The only complaint I had was My eggs were scrambled too hard for my taste.

Price point just a little high- maybe because it is next to the dock. Burger and Tuna pita were good and portion size good Wait staff friendly Not my favorite stop at Carolina Beach but would go back

My wife, grandson and I had "brunch" there on August 26th. Parking is an issue and once you park in their free parking, you have to either back out into the street or drive over a small curb. The food was below par; my wife's cheese omelet was terrible - the cheese wasn't even melted - she would have sent... More
