The name has changed but the great food and service is better than ever! With four kids it's hard to find somewhere where they all love! The food, the service, the atmosphere - it one of the best!

First off, the place changed names to AQUA. Same owner and location, but the hotel is now WYNFIELD, not Best Western or Holiday Inn. This listing needs updating. I had the herb-pecan encrusted chicken breast with fingerling potatoes in a herb butter sauce. My mouth died with pleasure with every bite. I'm not exaggerating. I also had the tomato and... More

Lest there be any confusion, The Sunset Bar and Grille has been renamed Aqua Bistro. This is doubly confusing since it is located inside what was once the Holiday Inn, renamed Best Western and finally Wyndham Garden Inn. I have to admit that I haven't eaten here recently yet but now that they have acquired Sebastien Maris as the chef,... More

Sunset Bar and Grill, Wyndham Gardens (previously Holiday Inn and Best Western): We went here with high expectations, but left with literally a bad taste in our mouths. We ordered boneless chicken wings, fried green tomatoes, 2 Caprese salads and and mussels and clams as appetizers which took about 45 minutes to get. When our appetizers did arrive, only one...

My husband and I dined here last night. The filets were wonderful cooked perfectly. Service was good. They were very busy. I can't wait to return. The chef is Sebastian and kudos to the drizzles of sauce on the steak I wish it was bottled for sale!

My wife and I enjoyed the finest dinning experience of our year long trek throughout N. Alabama at the Sunset. We ordered several dishes that, honestly were the best we've ever had and being prepared in the same place made the experience all the more remarkable. The mignon, shrimp scampi and alfredo were spectacular and so was the service. We... More

We dined there recently with some friends. While the drinks were good, (how can you mess up Jack Daniels on the rocks?), the food was mediocre and lacking in imagination. Also, the wait time for the poor food was excessive. When questioned about it, the servers said there was a new computer system. I guess the computers also prepared the... More
