The only reason I am giving this place two stars is because of the location. It's a great place to overlook the water and sit outside. If you go, only go during lunch/dinner hours. Forget going for drinks after 9. The service has always been bad after 9 it's almost impossible to get a drink. If the service was decent... More

Stopped by on a sunny Labor Day for what we expected to be a nice summer lunch. The awning on the patio didn't work, so we either had to sit inside or in the blazing sun. The upper patio was dirty (crumbs and small food scraps were brushed onto the floor by the waitstaff). The drinks came quickly ($11/glass sangria??),... More

A group of 12 of us went here over the weekend following a day of fishing. We sat in the bar and the service, while very friendly, was also very slow. We had to wait for drinks. The appetizers came out on time but the food was staggered. The appetizers were good but not remarkable. The chicken wings were a... More

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
