The Gulf Stream Restaurant is a casual little restaurant that borders a handful of shops and marinas in the heart of Carolina Beach. Featuring a classic exterior and a wealth of classic back-to-basic eats, this family-friendly restaurant has just enough crowd-pleasing breakfast, lunch and dinner fare to leave everyone in the party satisfied.
Gulf Stream Restaurant is perhaps best known by longtime vacationers as a breakfast spot, although with breakfast served all day, patrons don’t have to get up early to enjoy the overflowing plates. There’s a wide variety of breakfast staples to choose from, including eggs, pancakes, waffles, and platters that boast country ham, bacon, regular ham, and smoked or turkey sausages. For lunch, patrons can enjoy a light bite, like a turkey club, chef or Greek salad, or grilled chicken sandwich, or can feast on a lunchtime entrée, or a big burger or fried flounder sandwich with fries or onion rings. The dinner menu has even more seafood-focused entrees to choose from, such as shrimp, oysters, fish and crab cakes, as well as steaks, chops, and even pastas. With so much variety and a nice dose of friendly service and southern hospitality, Gulf Stream Restaurant remains a classic coastal restaurant for hungry patrons who love the basics.
