Enjoyed excellent conch chowder. Conch was tender and the spice was just right. My husband had the ultimate fish sandwich and I had a Mahi Mahi sandwich with a delicious citrus jalepeno slaw. Great place to watch sports on many screens. We'll probably go back again this visit!

This was by far our best meal on vacation. There was a long wait, but that's what I expect if you don't make reservations. We had a Grouper special, a Mahi mahi special and Lobster ravioli and a crab artichoke spinach dip appetizer. Could have had a few more chips wit the dip, but otherwise was excellent.

Stopped for lunch and I ordered the Ultimate Fish Sandwich and we shared a smoked mahi dip appetizer. My wife enjoyed a cup of NE clam chowder which was good, but the dip was bland and when the manager came by asking about our food we had eaten half with the help of their great datil pepper sauce. We didn't... More

We visited the Sunset Grill on a Saturday evening. The location was great and right across from our hotel. When we arrived the weather was very nice but breezy and there was a 40 min wait for outdoor seating. we waited about 40 min and were seated on the upper level with only an umbrella to cover us. There are... More

Loved the shrimp with fried grits, cucumber martinis, sunset grouper, and most of the goat cheese salad. The goat cheese itself was a bit overwhelming- way too much for the salad. We had the crab fondue as an appetizer which was ok, but it seemed some was tuna and not entirely crab. The atmosphere was upbeat and fun and very... More

We stopped by for lunch on our day trip in St. Augustine. The coconut shrimp were really good, fish tacos delicious and the blackened mahi sandwich very tasty. I imagine the open air seating is a lot more desirable when it's less windy but nonetheless it's a great location with pretty good service.

We knew this restaurant was popular so we decided to give it a try. We visited on a Thursday night and it was very busy. We decided to seat ourselves at one of the outdoor tables, and although we were waited on in a timely fashion, we waited well over a hour to be served our dinner. When we spoke... More

Second time here while visiting from NY because we love this place and was recommended by my cousin who lives here. My picky Kids loved the corn dog nuggets and fish n chips and extra crispy French fries. I love the ahi tuna tacos and my hub loves their baked Clams and all else he's ordered. We would recommend this... More

Sunset Grille sits alongside many other eating options on A1A Beach Boulevard, close to the pier. It is one of the best. There's a welcoming atmosphere and excellent service. The menu offers many options, and in our experience the food never disappoints. There are bar, table and booth seating options, as well as an upper floor which is open to... More

The food was mostly fried, and nothing from the sea seemed fresh. The margarita wasn't bad. I ordered steamed shrimp and my wife had fish that hadn't just been caught. When a restaurant is a block from the ocean, I usually expect the menu to reflect items that could have been caught locally. Their menu had none of that.

We have reached out to this reviewer for further information, however, we would like to clarify that we have many items on our menu that are not fried. Our Mahi, Grouper and Tuna served are locally caught and delivered daily by a local fishery and our steamed shrimp come from the Gulf Coast of Florida. We welcome our visitors to... More
