Tucked away on a less traveled road the cozy, casual, "lets unwind" appeal of the exterior appearance begs you to come in. The spacious parking lot is easy to maneuver even with a large pickup truck. No marked parking spaces so you can leave enough space between your vehicle and another that makes you comfortable. A warm and welcoming entrance... More

I moved to this area 30 years ago. Friends took us to the sunset then, raving about how very good the food was, and the exceptional portion size. 98% of the time you will get a superb, excellent, delicious, and reasonably priced meal. The other 2 % of the time it may only be excellent. During the weekends and dinner... More

I've lived in the Auburn area for many years and only been to the Sunset about four times. We had not been there in about three years and decided to go this past January. The first impression upon entering is that this place is dated and needs a serious overhaul on the interior. Service was average at best, our waitress... More

Very good American and Italian food, excellent specials, fine professional wait staff and bar service. Nice family friendly, old-fashioned restaurant. An excellent value for the money. We've been going there for years, and will continue to do so. One suggestion – please reduce the salt in your standard menu items, or at least offer some heart healthy low-sodium alternatives! The...

We went to the Sunset Restaurant with friends for dinner this past Sunday - they let us know it was one of their favourite spots in Auburn. It was easy to see why - the whole place had a very "you're family here" kind of atmosphere where the staff knew the regulars. I had the spinach salad and french onion... More

We entered the restaurant at 6 pm, were seated at 6:20 pm in the dining room. We had to wait 10 mins to place our order. Didn't see much of our waitress. Waited for 1 hour and never got our food! Three tables around us were having their food boxed and were leaving. Left money on table for app and... More

We haven't been to the Sunset for a few years; it was always basically ok, occasionally too crowded with over-taxed wait-staff, with good but not surprising food. We went for an early Sunday dinner so the place was almost empty except for an event in the room for receptions/parties. The wine list is basic with an ok selection of Finger... More
