Two stars might be generous. Pros: great views, good martini, wine list was moderately priced. Cons: chippino did not resemble its namesake. It was over cooked seafood on a bed of pasta with a blob of marinara in the middle. It did not resemble chippino...More

Came highly recommended and didn’t disappoint. Great views of the Inlet at sunset. All meals were delicious with no leftovers and no complaints. Crab cakes were very good and meaty with just enough filler. Good manhattans from the bar too.

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.
