My girlfriend's first trip to the States and after a visit to Harkness State Park we came across Sunset Ribs. As it was a pleasant day we sat out on the Upper Deck which has a good view across the harbour entrance, the only downside is the road-noise from the bridge. Courtney was our waitress and she was friendly and... More

Used to go there a lot. Tried it again tonight to remember why we haven't been there in a long time. Time for a Face lift and new energy!

This place has nothing going for them except the view. I don't go here much but when I do the service is terrible. The bartenders are just awful, actually most of the staff is! They don't care about customer service and only cater to certain people. There's only 4 people at the bar and I wait 10 minute for a... More

I had a great time at Sunset Ribs! My family and I loved the view from the top deck and had a great meal after our fishing excursion. The atmosphere was great and we had a great time. Can't wait to come back next summer!

We've been here twice this summer and we have not been overly impressed. Food was just ok and the surroundings are starting to get dated.

I'm seeing a trend here. Read and Heed the other reviews. Don't Waste Your Time or Money! The view is not worth it. Poor leadership leaves a bad taste in customers mouths if you didn't know. This is not our server's fault, even if we did wait 5 minutes before anyone even acknowledged we were there and our first round... More

We had our first meal here just before sunset this afternoon. The hostess and waitress were cheery and pleasant and the setting was spectacular. A busy waterfront, with boats passing by, a nearby drawbridge opening from time to time, and fishermen on the jetty/park across the water. The house wine (Barefoot) was drinkable and reasonably priced. The live band was... More

I took my mom here for mothers day. The view was great and when we finally got our food it was great. If the location was not as nice I may have gotten really upset how long it took to get our food. They're lucky it was a nice day!

have been here a bunch of times, the bar, the atmosphere, the sunset and most of the live entertainment they have are worth the trip. however, the food has continually not met my expectations. it is not horrible, but it is not above average either. had the ribs over the weekend and they came out lukewarm at best. our waiter...
