A place to have fun

We went with our adult children and grandchildren. We all enjoyed it. There are ping pong tables for the kids and a busy bar scene. They had a children's menu. The food was good but pricey. You get to look at the beach and the sunset if you go early enough. A good place for a family if you go... read more

The setting at sunset beach is truly amazing - great beach views, romantic atmosphere. The food itself probably doesn't deserve 5 stars, but it is solid and this place is really all about the setting. Other commenters have posted that it's pricey, which is fair (cocktails around $18), but it's comparable to other places in the area and beats almost... More

Gorgeous location. But there is a party scene now. High end, short dresses, expensive drinks etc. If I was sinlge and in my twenties yes but not for the mom of an eleven year old. She can't go there.

Nice beachfront location with sushi and overpriced drinks on Shelter Island. Its a busy spot, but a fun area to sip drinks and watch the sunset.

Overpriced! The food was good and the atmosphere was cool but it was very overpriced. It is one of the only places on that beach so they have a great spot but not worth the money!

We arrived a few minutes early for our 8pm reservation on a Monday night. The hostess said they were running behind, and "Go have a drink over there". We waited 20 minutes "over there" before the cocktail waitress came by. We ordered two Margaritas and the fried artichokes. At 8:25, the hostess came by to tell us our table would... More

Nice bar area, feels like you are in the Caribbean. We waited 45mins for a table which was not so bad as we enjoyed having a drink at the bar. Food was disappointing tiny appetizers that are way overpriced and no bread. The fried artichokes at the bar were the best food we had.

Quite the scene if you go on a weekend. Great view with good food. Perfect for late afternoon drink while watching the sunset on the water.

Wonderful ambiance, wonderful food, wonderful drinks and a spectacular setting. It is worth a visit. The patio and terraces are beautiful. The food was fresh and the crowd had positive energy and a great vide.

There are two parts to the restaurant, one on sand and one a floor up on hard flooring. We were at beach level. It was a fun place, but great views of the sunset (no surprise there!) The food was good (appetiser portions a bit small) although not there wasn't much fish available (which was a sunrise). The big surprise... More
