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

Sunset is hit or miss - what you get is just that, the sunset - and good people watching. The best thing they serve is the ham sandwich... mmmm... ham sandwich...

Absolutely amazing restaurant with great views. We had a beautiful lunch - Artichokes Fritters, Grilled Prawns and Carrots/Radishes/Tomatoes/Peppers/Cauliflower with Garlic Mayonnaise & Tapenade Dip, absolutely delicious - Great Service. (see pics)

Walked down the beach to this hotel bar and was apauled by the lack of any service. Stood at the bar for exactly 12 minutes and was never even looked at by 4 bar tenders standing in front of me. Do not waste your time here.

You left the city to get away from the posturing euro trash and skinny russian escorts? You didn't come to shelter island to experience Ibiza at its worst? Where to begin, Ferraris in the parking lot, tools everywhere. They took the worst parts of the city and the wanktoms and brought them here. The beach is nice but for the... More

Before speaking of anything else, from the back (the yard where there's the fire, or from upstairs) I LITERALLY feel like I'm in Monaco or Cannes, somewhere in the French Riviera!!!! I think I had the best Jambon-Fromage sandwich there (ham and cheese), seriously... It tasted like nothing I had before. The music there is also really nice, so is... More

"Sunset Beach" is an enigma. The location and set-up of the establishment is beautiful; one feels as though they are in the South of France or Martinique.. But that's where it ends. The food is just average at best. Salade Nicoise was served with canned tuna! The service was poor except for the lovely hostess. The main server was inattentive... More

Location is great, right across the street from the beach. The bad, food is not worth the prices they are charging. $27 dollars for a cheeseburger!!!!! Really?

I've gone here once each summer for the last three years. It's not terrible, but it bears no resemblance to any other venue or vibe on Shelter Island. The views are great, the drinks, food and service are perfectly acceptable, yet there's something disturbing about the clientele. They're by and large not Islanders. Maybe they're wanna-be Hamptonites? Can't put my... More
