Mixed Emotions

I'm torn on this place... Great location, fantastic views, adequate service staff, but exceptionally mediocre food and extortionate prices. Would I go back? Yes, of course - for the ambience. But I would probably eat somewhere else, enjoy some drinks and catch the sunset.

Sunset Grille is a fabulous summer seaside restaurant located at the tail end of a boat yard. This waterfront venue offers delicious seafood,/american fare, great selection of cocktails to go with their fabulous view as you sip your drinks on deck overlooking the Norwalk Harbour.. This place is a must for lunch/drinks/or dinner as you literally feel like you are... More

We enjoyed an anniversary dinner here. We sat outside and had a nice view. The food was an average seafood fare. Shrimp on my mixed grill were a little dry. Lobster bisque was very good.Staff was nice and attentive.

If you plan to visit this restaurant be prepared to wait for a table. The staff's practices are leave a lot to be desired for seating you at a table as well as the bar staff are rude. We called for reservations and they said they did not take them. When we arrived we put our name on the list... More

Definitely plan to dine here at sunset, it is glorious! Seating can be outdoors near the live music and bar, or under a canopy, where it is a little quieter, all within view of the marina and sunset. You will probably need reservations, even Ina weekday night! Very attentive waitstaff who helped us select just the right beer and wines.

Had dinner there last night, great sunset & calm waters. Food was great, service was "spot on". I had Sole Francais, if you like fried food, the shrimp is really good.

Visit often as a couple. The atmosphere is what brings you here but the food is what keeps you coming back. Excellent Fish and Chips and fried Scallops.

Although this is a tough place to find, its worth it if you are looking for a casual, on the water restaurant. Food is good, but not a 'foodie' kind of place. Live music on some nights. Literally on the water surrounded by boats and a marina.

Four us decided to go to The Sunset Grille today to sit out on a beautiful day and enjoy the great atmosphere. We had a total of 3 different wait staff and none of them got it right. Our drinks came out at separate times, our appetizers came out at different times. One had to be taken back because the... More
