Terribly sorry for your disappointment but it is a standard policy just as a corkage fee is standard. We sell homemade desserts at the restaurant and frown upon guest bringing in store bought cakes. When it does happen the server still has to present the...More

Beautiful setting. Many of us had the fish special and it was just okay, however the champagne salad was outstanding. We brought 2 bottles of our own wine and were shocked when they charged a $50 corkage fee, $25 each! No desire to go back.More

We cannot handle that many in the restaurant but could cater something in the owners lounge next door! Let me know if this is something you would be interested in. Thanks, linda

As Linda and her culinary team work their magic creating soups, daily specials and awesome desserts, Hugh and his well trained wait staff cater to the needs of the guest. To accompany the delicious meals offered at Sunset Grille, Hugh has put together an extensive wine list that is well rounded and well priced. If wine is not your drink of choice you can choose from a large selection of spirits or craft beers. Sunset Grille is a casual fine dining restaurant established in 1996 by Linda and Hugh Lockman. Whether you are dining at lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch you will not be disappointed. Sunset Grille has been consistently recognized as one of Hilton Head Islands best kept secrets and was voted by Garden & Gun magazine to have one of the BEST Bloody Mary's in the south. With virtually no advertising it has remained one of the most popular dining destinations on the Island. Along with the fantastic food, great beverage list and attentive service Sunset Grille offers one of the best sunset and water views on Hilton Head Island. Located at the Hilton Head Harbor Marina on the Intracoastal Waterway and overlooking Pinckney Island Wildlife Refuge, it is a view not to be missed!
