Great seafood!

Went here with family on a trip to Norwalk. The food was really good. We couldn't sit outside because they were busy and inside, there is not much of a view, but we had a great time. The service was average.

I've been to several outdoor places but this one has the worst cleanliness by far. I saw a waiter dip a dirty hand towel into a drinking water pitcher to clean something and then serve the water to people. Most of the food they serve is fried, not many healthy options... even the salads are lathered up. If you're just... More

Have been there a few times. Setting is wonderful, food is good. Prices on the high side. Latest visit - this past weekend-- ( 6 people)- made reservations, table was wobbly and we were seated next to some noisy people. We asked to move our table, they said fine, then came back and said no, it was impossible-- even tho... More

It can be crowded so be prepared to wait. Service was good and food was good. Not gourmet, but good. Nice view. Parking a little tough when the boat yard is full.

I recently visited the Sunset Grill for lunch on a a quiet cloudy weekday. The setting is fantastic, no matter the weather. Set on a quiet corner of the Norwalk Marina, you can take in the views of Long Island Sound on one side and the harbor on the other. We had a delicious lobster salad, the lobster roll and... More

Sunset Grill provides a delicious reminder that Norwalk is a shore community. Stunning water views and fresh seafood presented beautifully. Mussel appetizer was delicious and scallops were fresh and cooked to perfection. Halibut was tender and tasty and exceeded my expectations. Service was excellent - we will be back for sure!

Set in the back of the Norwalk Cove Marina, the ambiance begins as you drive past dozens of yachts and large sailboats. The Sunset Grille is located in a small nondescript building at the back of the boatyard. We went on a beautiful summer evening and had to wait about an hour for a table. This was fine as we...

It's a bit tricky to find the Sunset Grille - you turn right into the boat yard just before the gatehouse for the beach area, then you keep driving as far as you can, bearing around to the left, until you reach the end. It's worth the effort though, because the atmosphere is pure "summertime." A friend and I had... More
