My husband took me here for our anniversary dinner and it was amazing. It was a Wednesday night in April so we pretty much had the entire place to ourselves. It was a very romantic setting and not sure if I would bring our children. I had the 6 oz steak with the blue cheese butter and it was amazing!... More

Very nice place. Quaint, hidden. They are on open table so you can make a reservation. Great wine and the best food in town if you want to get away from the seafood. They have seafood but the steaks are awesome. Pictured is the cheese plate app. It is great.

My husband and I discovered this little gen a couple of years ago, and now make a point of going here every time we return to the area. I always have the filet, as I love a break for all the seafood !

This place has a nice, hole-in-the-wall feel to it. It also has good deals on wine one night. The manager is lovely as well! Def a must visit.

We had the rehearsal dinner for our son's wedding at the Sunset Cork Room and it was perfect. I live in Nashville, so I was planning this all long distance. Nina was so helpful and accommodating. She listened to what I wanted and provided exactly what I asked for. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was intimate. We had... More

The Sunset Cork Room is an exciting new concept for the Gulf Coast. We offer unique wines from around the world complemented by beautiful appetizers and exquisite desserts. Our resident Chef Ira Gallon will have your mouth watering and our staff will have you relaxed and at ease. "A little off the beaten path", the Cork Room is an excellent way to escape the typical beach fare and step into a more sophisticated, personal atmosphere. We're also the perfect place to talk over plans with associates or meet up with friends. We offer live acoustic music, soft lighting and a stunning decor.
