The food was good and we had a fantastic server, Stacie. The prices were a little high but it was a great atmosphere. This will be a do-over the next time we're in town.

I have never seen pets at this restaurant but the Sunset Grill allows pets and it is so cool. They will even water your pet! Slick!

I believe they do. I know for sure they have a meat free salad. I think there is even a meat free appetizer. The meals now I can't remember, but I imagine they can customize something if asked. Hope this helps.
