I love this place. Especially on a nice day you can sit outside and relax. I'm not a big fan of hamburgers but the hamburger on their lunch menu is AMAZING! as are the scallops, crabcakes, rotisserie chicken, salmon appetizer... ummm

Gulfie used to be one of my favorite restaurants. The atmosphere & ambiance.. is great. BUT... The food.. although it's tasty enough, Gulfstream has reduced the size of their main dish portions remarkably. They fill up the HUGE plates

An over priced place to eat. The food is only so so for what they charge and the portions are small. The staff was o.k. Waiter was busy talking to another table and it took awhile for him to help us. Wasn't even at a busy time of the day! Probably won't go there again.

Pros: Friendly Hostess, good food

Cons: Slow Service

Many people agree that it isn't the same since it changed its name from Cowboy. But its a quite the place if you want to people watch. Many consider it the place to be seen, people practically pose when they are there. Generally overrated.

The service here is terrible; the servers seem to be at odds with one another as well as the kitchen staff. After serving the meal our server disappeared; unfortunately my steak was well done instead of medium rare by the time I tracked

Gulfstream, located at the corner of MacArthur & PCH, sits on the site of the old A&W drivethru - a great location offering a bit of nostalgia for Newport. Service is a tad chaotic and for some reason they always forget the water (remind

The Crab Cakes are the best anywhere, solid Crab. No Corkage on Wine is another bonus. Many other good food items on the menu.

A patio that speaks a thousand words. Everytime my boyfriend lands in CA, I pick him up and immediately drive him to Gulfstream. We sit outside, drink a bottle of Red Wine, and enjoy the firepits and cozy atmosphere. I recommend this

This is one of the few places in Orange County that "gets it" and knows how to run a restaurant. The service is excellent and the attention to detail is as well. The bar staff is very professional, friendly and pleasant. We have gone
