Good food and service, but very pricey drinks here. Spent New Years Eve here. The DJ was not good and things seemed unorganized. We still managed to have fun.

Gross. The staff was rude, our server was just a brat. Asked for a salt shaker that worked, ours was completely clogged. She spent 2 minutes trying to bang out the clog on her leg…then the food….uggg. The mahi tacos were soaked in some sort...of “salsa” that literally soaked the entire basket. Tasted like old lime and bad tomato’s. My husband asked for a spicy Bloody Mary, he got a tomato juice, vodka and a single olive. Then menu have a much better sounding one, that he wanted, but that is only Sunday. Oh when he asked for hot source, the young women dropped off something stating it’s all we have…..the inside was covered in mold…More

The whole experience makes this place special. You can dine while watching the sunset...and watch boats on the water...listen to the live band 7 days a week, enjoy the tiki bar or stroll around on the beach. Our food was excellent, I liked my citrus...salmon and pineapple sulsa, it came with coconut rice and fresh vegetables. My wife liked her 6 jumbo coconut shrimp appetizer which made for a full meal....she even took 2 home. Service was friendly and efficient. This place is special.....More

Expansive view of ever-spectacular sunsets. The glorious location brought us here to gather and celebrate with friends. The attentive service by Amanda and pre-planning by Hailey allowed us to relax and enjoy the company -- as well as the calamari, loaded tater tots, and coconut...shrimp! Relaxed casual. Come with an island attitude and you'll leave fulfilled.More

Again I just cannot say enough good things about this place. We go often because of the views and the food and the service and also because of the amazing music. We decided to have a birthday party there for all those very reasons and...one of our favorites Erin Boone was playing and always amazing (what a Voice) and it could accommodate 25 people, it was a perfect night. yes there was a mess up in seating when we arrived but quickly remedied by the Manager Hayley... thank you again for quickly changing the seating. We had asked for Patty who is just perfection when it comes to people and fast service and all with amazing attitude and smiles. thank you Patty So Thanks again for helping create a night to remember for my Birthday Girl.. Food was amazing, View and sunset Wow and Service well above Average and yes definitely recommend... see you again soonMore

We arrived for an early dinner, hoping to sit on the beach until sunset, but it stormed just as we finished eating. Staff was helpful in trying to relocate us to finish before the storm hit, but we just finished our dinners and paid quickly....The food was good.More

Sunset Grille is conveniently situated on the beach at Little Harbor, so the views are spectacular. However, the food is average and overpriced, and the drinks aren't very potent. It's worth the trip, especially at sunset, but I suggest getting an appetizer and iced tea...then...going somewhere else for dinner.More

We go there because of the view and the fact that there's always a nice breeze especially in the summer. The service in the restaurant is fine, but the food is consistently fair to terrible. The last time I went I had probably the worst...Cubans I've ever had. From now on, I think I'll order a drink and skip the food.More

We came for dinner but ended up ordering appetizers. We had the cocoanut shrimp (ex), calamari - they were not rings but very tender, and a salad. We were going to order more but were full when we finished. We are not likely to be...in the area again but if we were we would return and try something else. Service was good.More

Had dinner with the folks and kids. Ordered appetizers and they were just ok. Strawberry daiquiri was very good. All other food was either sub par or really not good at all. Probably good place for a drink but eat somewhere else if you want...great food.More

I haven't seen any pets there, but that doesn't mean... Some of the seating is tight, so I assume no in parts of the place
