We were staying in the area and actually went to Sunset Grill twice. However, if the second time had been the first time there likely would not have been a second time. We went on Open Mic night and really enjoyed it. The service was friendly and swift. The coconut shrimp were awesome and the margaritas were very good. Kathy,... More

What a gem on the shores. We were looking for seafood and found a great place. The dining area is small (may have been an upstairs) but it didn't matter. Had outside seating if one wanted. Food was excellently prepared and very friendly service. We were debating on dessert and our waiter said we would not be disappointed. It was... More

Went to this place a couple years back but caught my eye when I was driving around town. Their tuna is amazing! It was cooked perfectly to have a warm, not hot raw center that melted in your mouth. The area is quiet with seagulls squawking and water bouncing off the hull of the boats. It's a great place to... More

We were told to choose our seats and got drinks almost immediately. The bartender was very helpful with recommendations and let my husband sample a local beer from the bar. I ordered chicken tenders and he got the seafood platter. Decent amount of food for the price. The tartar sauce was unique in that it was smooth not chunky and... More

You might refer to the Sunset Grill as a 'hole in the wall' and as with many such places this was a gem. Really good food, attentive service, friendly folks, and the night we were there a lone guitarist was playing and singing quietly. I hate loud music while I'm eating, so it was nice.

The owner, Kathy, greets us as long lost friends with each visit. The food is delicious and service is fantastic. It is a local small restaurant but the atmosphere, inside and out on the deck are special. We stop everytime we are going to the beach as sort of our kickoff for the beach.

My husband and I recently moved to the area and wanted to try somewhere local with a few of our friends. It took us awhile to find a seat and no one seemed to care if we found a seating arrangement or not. Our drinks came relatively quickly, but our food took quite awhile to arrive, although the food was... More
