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

Worst of the worse. Ordered a bottle of beer with a glass and a glass filled with ice finally showed up 10 minutes later. Ordered dinner and it took 30 plus minutes for our salad to show up. Seventy-five minutes for dinner and the wrong plate showed up. Another 1/2 hour for the right plate of uncooked salmon less any... More

Awful food, awful band, awful tablecloths, nice hostess. Beautiful view. Buy a six pack and watch the sunset in the parking lot. Would be much better. Waited for an hour for nothing.

Bad food, dirty place bad service. The bar is great to be picked up or pick some slob up after work for a quickie. Other than that, the food is bland, the place is dirty and there are some scary characters there as patrons, clients, and workers. Other than that - have fun.

Sunsets is Prime real estate and what a shame that such a beautiful relaxing atmosphere is completely destroyed with every course that comes out, the lobster bisque was cold, thick like a spread or a dip, my husbands nachos were next, how bad can one mess up nachos you ask? Lol well they were cold, canned. Chili was the cheapest... More

Love it...hanging at the outside bar dancing to the DJs is great.....bartenders are fantabulous.....and the whole atmosphere is really great. I love this place; I'm there every Friday night.....and the food is excellent!

The food was okay, but the life around the bar, the music (not necessarily great quality, but very entertaining) and watching the sun set over the water with the boats moored in front of you make it worth a visit
