We have been going to this restaurant for years and have always been pleased with the food. We usually go for the early bird special which is a special menu with smaller portions, but very good value for the $10-$12 price. We usually get the steak mediallions. The meal includes beverage and dessert. Our last visit was earlier this year, March 2014

We have been going to Gulf Stream many years but this year was very disappointing. The blackened fish was burned, the filet medalions were also burned on the outside, the green beans were hardly cooked, steamed, the chicken parm was disappointing, sauce was very watery and no cheese. Did not new management take over and new cook

Waitress was outstanding. When asked about the crab cakes, she said they were very good. We both got them and found them to be among the best we've ever had. Outstanding isn't enough good to say about it.

We had reservations and we asked for a window table. When we got there the very unfriendly hostess seated us by the door. We asked to be seated at one of the many window tables available. She rolled her eyes and reluctantly led us to another table. The menu was very limited and the food was average. My sister got the shrimp and flounder and her flounder was nothing but fish scales and very unappetizing. The kicker was that we were with a party of 6 and unaware of the tipping included on parties of 5 or more. When we paid we all, three couples, left a tip and the waiter failed to mention that it was already on the bill. I think this is very underhanded and we will never go back to the Gulf Stream. We have a house in surf side and visit many times during the year. Save your money and go elsewhere there are too many other good places. And if you are reading this Gulf Stream.....tell your hostesses it wouldn't hurt to smile and be friendly to the customers.

This was our last meal at the beach for our week. It is also the last meal we will ever have at the Gulf stream Cafe. We were greeted by a very unfriendly hostess. I don't think she even talked to us let alone smile. We had reservations requesting a table by the window. While there were tables available by the window we were shown to a table right by the door. We then asked the unfriendly hostess if we could move and she reluctantly found us a new table. We were served the bread basket but only one of us had a knife. Good thing we like each other. My sister ordered shrimp and flounder and her flounder was nothing but dark skin. Yuck! The waiter was not very good either. He couldn't keep us straight and we waited a long time for him to come around. The final insult was the added 18 percent gratuity for parties of 5 or more which was microscopically printed at the bottom of the extremely limited menu. The joke was on us as the waiter took our 20 percent tip on top of the 18 percent already assessed on our bill, and never told us. He's laughing all the wY to the bank. We spend a lot of time in the area as we own a home here. As soon as we returned home we threw away the menu from Gulf Stream that we had in our suggested restaurant folder for our friends and relatives who visit. We will never ever return to the Gulfstream. What happened to this place??

We have been going to this restaurant for years, however, our last two visits this year have been very discouraging. On our last visit we were very disappointed. First, the menu has been significantly reduced to only limited items (one page) and the prices have also been raised noticeably. We came to dinner without reservations and were pleasantly surprised with no waiting, a sign of bad things to come. The restaurant was only half filled and there were plenty of serving staff, however it took 10 minutes to be asked for our drinks after we were seated. Another 15 minutes passed before we received the water we ordered and then another 8 minutes before our waitress returned. We ordered an appetizer that took another 18 minutes to get and had not yet ordered our dinner. After we finally ordered our meal it took another 22 minutes to actually get our food which was not what we ordered and burned. Rather than complain we elected to eat and call it a day. After more than an hour (and a $60+ bill) we were ready to leave and will not return anytime soon. The Green family should be proud!

Went for the early bird special can't beat the deal: Jumbo bourbon cocktail Shrimp appatizer & Fried Shrimp just right crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Service is always attentive and on task. Will always make sure recommend to friends visiting Murrells Inlet. Special thanks to Melissa our waitress!

Certainly off the beaten path, but well worth the drive! Excellent food surrounded by an incredible view of the Murrell's Inlet marsh. Only been there once, but thr first impression was perfect! Very casual with an upscale menu. Make this a stop on your vacation to Myrtle Beach!! You will not be disappointed!

Ate there last night. I recommended the nobody EVER order the SHRIMP BASIL. It is tasteless. The noodles and shrimp is tasteless. The tomatoes taste like tomatoes but that is the only flavor in this entre. My wife had the fried seafood platter and that was very good. However, the Shrimp Basil entre should be removed from the menu. To pay over $20 for it was very disappointing.

A good place to go. Arrive very early as the place fills up quickly. Parking is very limited.

Be careful with tipping - the tip is included with your bill with parties of 5 or more. Most of the waiters do not tell you this and many people double tip.
