We wanted to be able to sit outside with a view so we chose Sunsets. (Our first visit here.) We arrived at about 4 and were told that they were only serving the from the dinner menu, not lunch. Okay so we flipped the menu over to dinner. There was a large variety of seafood options, but we felt the... More

After going to Belmar and eating at many places during those years, decided to try out Sunsets. After a gorgeous day at the beach we were ready for a good dinner and a few drinks on the water. We were seated at a table on the deck over the water. Our server came over with the menus, both the lunch... More

No problems with service on a Thurs evening. Enjoyed seating on covered deck next to boat harbor. Piped music a little loud. Food quality very good: spicy tuna, salads, flounder and children's mac and cheese. Entree salad a little pricy for what you get, though it was very abundant with spring mix. Children's menu items are free on Thurs with... More

The owners of this place have no business AT ALL running a restaurant! We were there on Saturday evening with my sister and brother in law. Our mistake by not making reservations but we thought we would give it a try. We walked inside, the owner (this was confirmed by one of the waitresses later) was at the front desk... More

We thought we would stop for a drink , appetizer and the sunset. We sat at bar and FINALLY got asked have you been helped. Next our bar tender after nicely making my pineapple Cosmo spills some of it before serving it and proceeds to just add straight vodka and a squirt of cranberry. Ok I can deal with that.... More

Made a reservation for my sisters birthday for a 10 top, arrived at the restaurant and they did not "input the reservation" so we didn't have a reservation. they stuffed us in a hot corner and every seafood entree we received was horrible and old. When asked to send it back we had to speak to the manager, who ended... More

Thank goodness for new blood at Sunsets. Apparently new ownership. The menu has been almost completely revamped and it's so much better. We were there for lunch and the Chilled Lobster entree was amazingly good. Great service, too, from a bartender who was pitch-hitting for an ill waitress; she was very attentive and we never waited long for a beer... More

The service isn't great, but the food is quite good (getting better now that they've added sushi to the menu) and the overall experience of enjoying your meal overlooking the water more than makes up for whatever the service lacks. The last time we visited, I had the tuna steak, which was excellent, and my husband was very happy with... More

We have eaten here last year and the food and service were good. We went last Friday night and the service and food has goon from good to very good. They have a new Cook and the food is very good. The fish was very fresh and the salad was if it had just been picked from the garden. The... More
