As per previous reviews, menu appeared limited but our table of five did not have any difficulty making selections. The filet was very good, green beans fresh not over cooked. On a Saturday night after Thanksgiving, it was not crowded and appeared to be a nice setting for a romantic dinner. The early bird menu had another variety of well-priced selections. Service was attentive and timely. I will return with another round of guests!

Great food, great service. This was second visit to Gulf Stream. Loved the early bird specials, even on Sunday they are available.

The Sunday brunch is excellent! I imagine the everyday breakfast is good as well. We also had dinner here our first night since it was so close... The wait staff is very attentive and the food was great!

We eat here every time we visit, we have never been disappointed. Their quality of food and service is incredible. The shrimp prongs appetizer are a must if you love shrimp. I had mussels and pasta in a garlic wine sauce that was to die for! Drink and salad comes with early bird special. Great for kids too!

Went for our 2nd visit on 11/1 after getting an E-mail that they were having all-you-can-eat lobster tails for $49.95. Might sound expensive, and we were a little skeptical after some experiences with so-called lobster tails at other area restaurants, but thought we'd try it anyway since our first visit several months ago was such a pleasant dining experience. And I've got to say, they outdid themselves. The tails were a full 8 oz. each, came out two at a time, prepared perfectly and absolutely delicious. I decided to pass on the salad and hush puppies (after all, I wasn't there for rabbit food and bread), and managed 6 of those monster tails before I gave up. The service was impeccable, no bum's rush, the view is magnificent and we certainly got our 50 bucks worth.
