Gulfstream Restaurant Carolina Beach

The Original.

The original Gulfstream Restaurant opened in Carolina Beach in 1978. Though the restaurant has undergone a series of updates in recent years, the great food, and family atmosphere hasn’t changed.

Stop by for breakfast, lunch or dinner and you’ll see many familiar faces at Gulfstream Restaurant in Carolina Beach. Many of our team members have spent decades working at the restaurant. 


Sean O’Malley

General Manager

Sean is a North Carolina native born in Chapel Hill. He grew up in the Triad area and studied at GTCC in Greensboro where he played baseball and found his passion for food service in the ranks of a small chain restaurant.

Sean relocated to Wilmington two years ago to be with his high school sweetheart, Taylor, and gained local experience at Sweet & Savory before coming to lead the CB team at our flagship location.


In his free time, Sean tries to catch up with family, including his five nephews. Sean says he’s “never been happier to be in this town and to serve the community of Carolina beach daily!”
