We are here on the last night of our vacation and it was easily the beat food of the trip. The whiskey pecan glazed salmon was superb. All others in our party of four report delicious food as well. Our service was disappointing, however. Although things began well, a large party of at least 12 came in after us. Our server abandoned us to help a co-worker with the larger table. We are not demanding customers...but drink refills or a follow up after the meal is delivered is expected. The young waiter failed to realize that abandoning smaller tables for a guaranteed large party gratuity is foolish.

So glad you enjoyed your food. Our Chef loves making exciting new specials. We had just started to implement "team serving" and were still working out the kinks. Unfortunately it sounds like you got caught in the crossfire of that. Come see us again, I am sure that the food and service will live up to your expectations!

Despite it being early season and a Friday night with a pretty full crowd, we were seated rapidly and our bartender/waitress cheerfully got our drinks and orders. Drinks were nice and the food was fine—nothing to jump up and down about, but it filled the bill and they have a good menu. It’s a good choice when you’re up around Corolla and don’t want to brave the crowds down in Duck or further south.

The service for our party of 10 was very good. The staff was friendly and very helpful.
Overall the food was fine. If it was fried, it was as expected. If the fish was grilled it was a bit overdone on two orders. In particular, I like mahi-mahi and order it regularly and this was the most overdone filet I can remember having and mahi-mahi was one of their daily specials. If we go again, I will just tell them to keep an eye on the grilled orders.

Sunfish Grill is a good spot for large parties. They have creative plates and friendly staff. My family and I were pleased with our dining experince. I had the Chicken Portobello Alfredo, and I enjoyed every bite of it. My mom chose The Fruit and Vegie salad.She was happy with the size and flavor. The service was fast. Diana was our server. She was outstansing. We'll definitelly come back to Sunfish Grill next year!
