Over rated and pretentious crowd

Nice to hang out at the bar/ cafe when off hours quiet..... but this place becomes quite the scene in season ....a place to be seen in a very pretentious Hamptons type crowd.

This restaurant is completely beach front and the views are amazing. Come here for dinner or drinks, but try and get here for the sunset. It's really just the nicest location and the food was excellent. The staffs very friendly as well. Great French Fries. Needless to say a must if you are on Shelter Island.

We went to Sunset Beach for lunch. Great menu options (shrimp and oysters were fantastic). Decent wine selection but extremely expensive, the $20 store bottle of rosé being sold for close to a hundred was excessive. That being said, it's a great restaurant, the service was awesome. Expect to drop some cash while you're there.

Sunset Beach is a beautiful spot. Amazing views. It is quite pricey however. The water views are breathtaking. Lots of people on and in the water in boats and paddle boarding. Nice beach area too.

Don't get fooled by the hype , this place has nothing special or exclusive about it . After a ridiculous fake process to get a reservation , waiting for 45 minutes to get the order and same time to get the meal , we were served the worst food the size of crumb for the most outrageous prices.

Beautiful beach and spectacular water views, I love the summer scene here whether lunch, dinner or just cocktails after a day at the beach. Multi-level restaurant, great cocktails and good food and lots of beautiful people.

SO quiet unlike any other beach I've ever been to in New York. It was so clean and lovely, did not go in the water but the food from the night before was lovely high end french food.

Perfect beach side dining with European chic ambiance. Convenience of the bar and restaurant to the beach cannot be beat! Fried artichokes are perfect to share. Rose and specialty cocktails are delicious. Child friendly too.

Definitely had atmosphere.......but spaghetti with tomato sauce was 32.00, a crab cake appetizer was 24.00......all items were overpriced.......food was good......our bill for 2 people came to close to 200.00.....that was for 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, 2 coffees and 2 deserts, ...without wine..not worth it...

Park your towels at the beach and go in the cafe, lounge or restaurant for a limited but tasty menu - mussels are probably the best option. Nice drinks but pricey.
