5 out of 5 stars...
I swear I remember reviewing the Gulf Stream. Apparently not.
Great, solid family-owned restaurant. We go there for breakfast all the time and are never disappointed. It gets super busy in the summer and sometimes it's not worth the wait or the crowd. But, the waitresses are always super nice (most have been working there for over 10 years...1 has been there since they opened 30 years ago!) and a member of the family is always present in the restaurant.
We went there for dinner for the first time last night. I'm not sure why we haven't gone before. I had chicken fingers and they were good, but my husband had the fried shrimp and it was hand's down the best fried shrimp I've ever had. I usually don't like that stuff because it all tastes the same and is so heavy and gross feeling. I'm pretty sure they batter these things in heaven because they were light and tasty. I think from now on we'll just split a large platter.
You must order the cinnamon toast with your breakfast. Oh my goodness. Please don't tell me how much butter they slather all over the bread, but man is it good.
