Love the Gulfstream. Definitely a casual local place. Recommend the shrimp and grits, flounder and grits, and omelettes. Friendly wait staff and good service. Not fancy but good! The chairs on the deck with the fish backs added a cute touch.

Great home cooking, whether you like good old fashioned fried chicken or fresh sea food or whatever you like. We loved it. Pam, our waitress, was wonderful. She told us she has been working at Gulfstream for 21 years.

Our Sunday "must do"! Breakfast treats keep bringing us back. But, it's the friendliest staff on the beach that really makes us feel so welcomed. Weeknight also keep us eager to try the "special of the day".
