As previous reviewers have said, entire restaurant needs to be updated. Carpet really needs to be replaced. Dinner was good, but very disappointed to be charged $1.50 for blue cheese on my salad. Personally, I think $1.50 is ridiculous and feel the server should have informed me of the upcharge. Doubtful that I'll be going back in the near future.

Recently returned to Auburn to visit and had to go back to our old haunt, The Sunset, for lunch. The menu has changed over the years, but the food is very plentiful (bring your appetite) and delicious. The French onion soup is great, and all the salads are huge and tasty. On fish Fridays, have the baked scrod - my... More

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
