Beautiful waterfront setting and the food and service were top notch. I had shrimp and my friend ate steak medallions. Both were amazing. Will definitely visit this one again!

We had a great seat on the upstairs patio that came with the amazing view pictured (the picture doesn't do it justice, and we got to see the sunset and the waves in the moonlight after). The food was amazing. Firecracker shrimp and she-crab soup...More

Voted “best restaurant with a view” and “most romantic” by The Sun News; Gulfstream Cafe is the only restaurant on the Strand overlooking the ocean on one side and Murrells Inlet on the other. Watch the sun set from the upstairs bar or deck and savor the creamy She-Crab soup, jumbo lump Crab Cakes, daily catch or Southern favorites- such as fried Lobster Tail. Offering something for everyone: live music, seasonal Oyster Roasts and Sunday brunch with a build your own Bloody Mary bar. Located at the south end of Garden City next to Marlin Quay Marina.
