This laid-back, beach-front seafood and cocktail spot is exactly what those escaping the city are looking for. Very casual with a fun, young atmosphere, the sunset view was absolutely breathtaking and just what you want after a day of sunkissed beach activity. I had a refreshing daquiri, crab legs, poke, kale salad and lobster at a breezy indoor/outdoor table. The... More

Probably picked one of the most beautiful evenings of the year to have dinner here the location and setting are very St. Tropez which my family loves. The dinner entrees were very good and well prepared however the drink orders were a constant struggle for the waitress to bring in a timely fashion on a relatively slow night. Although the... More

The rating I give is based purely upon the experience. We have spent time at different coastal spots on the Med and this is very reminiscent. Lots of beautiful people and posing. There is a huge bar scene but it is not acceptable that they do not have non alcoholic beer. Really? I am spending $250 for dinner and I... More

I visited this place with my wife, the place is nice, big, confortable and nice music and tons of beautiful people around. The sunsets are breathtaking and I really enjoy being at the bar having a drink and looking the sunset and the planes landing on the beach. The food is delicious but the portions are extremely small, provably this... More

My wife and I enjoyed an hour on the balcony watching sea planes take off and land. We had excellent beer and wine and enjoyed the European - style atmosphere. We also sat on the chairs on the beach for a while. This is definitely a must visit during the day. I should note that everyone we asked said the... More

A place to see and be seen, but also good food and nice cocktails while you watch the sunset and listen to tunes spun but he DJ. On a Sunday it definitely is a scene, but I understand from locals during the week its just a laid back lunch and dinner place. Either way, its a great place to have... More

Shelter Island was included in the original Plymouth Company land grant made by King James 1 of England in 1620. The Indians called Shelter Island " An Island sheltered by Islands" or also commonly called The Rock. The scenery is beautiful and on your way towards Sunset Beach Restaurant, located at Shore Road, when taking the left turn, the unfolding... More

We had a nice time at Sunset Beach. I called to make a reservation for the evening. The hostess stated they were no longer accepting reservations but we can just come in before 7 because it wasn't terribly busy. Upon arriving a gentleman met us at the entrance to the parking lot and asked us for our reservation (Yikes!!!) It... More

I go to Sunset Beach because it is different from all the other places out here and it has beautiful views and it is away from the South Fork summer madness - though it has its own madness. It is like Cannes in New York - service can be kind of uneven - the girls at reception are very young,... More
