We're in Carolina Beach for vacation. Had breakfast here twice. Food very good both days, I really enjoy their shrimp grits. First visit the service was very good, but yesterday they only had one server during the first part of our breakfast, so that poor lady was running all over the place, until another server came in. So, the customers... More

Gulf Stream is a popular breakfast spot. There is no waiting during the winter but at other times you will usually have a wait. The waitresses are friendly and some have been there for a very long time. Since Gulf Stream changed hands a few years ago it has been renovated. They now offer some fresh vegetables. Their prices are... More

I have been going to this spot for over 10 years. Today I did not recognize any staff from the front staff to the kitchen. Service was lack luster and the food was the absolute worst ever. I love the chicken parmesan. It did not taste like the same place at all. I hope the good guys return other wise... More

My family's experience: Seating for two adults w/three children was cramped. We were told we could not pull tables together but we could pull an extra chair up. This didn't solve the problem with lack of table top space. It's fine for 4 or less people, but more will probably need to separate to sit at other tables. Breakfast food... More

I'm into seafood - my husband is not. Their menu offers generous portions both types of food. They have fresh regional seafood in addition to homemade style comfort food and Daily Specials. We had lunch one day and dinner the next and both meals were delicious and reasonably priced. The waitress was extremely patient while we took our time making... More
