Amazing view mediocre food.

View is the draw here. Bar is good and appetizers good, but would not have a meal here. Very crowded during sunset. Can accommodate large groups.

What can one say? On one hand is nice setting that over looks the bay, etc, etc. On other hand is relatively fair to mediocre food. One wonders if this is a "tourist trap". Always seems to have a massive crowd, especially around "peak hours." Staff seemed about as pleasant as any restaurant in the OBX. The women in our... More

There are many mixed reviews here and hopefully I can offer some reasoning as to why. I have been here on several different occasions throughout different periods of the year. When this place is busy, they lack consistency, food quality, and service. When they are quiet and not so busy, the food is prepared better and the service is personal.... More

Food tastes as if it's being made at a poolside snack bar. Mainly gets it's business for its excellent location on the water, and a nice place to watch the sunset on the midst of the bay.

We ate dinner at this restaurant one night during our stay in October 2014. A bit over priced, but the food was good. Location was better than the food.

During this "off season" visit we were looking for a good seafood restaurant and seeing all the cars parked outside we were hoping Sunset would meet our expectations. We arrived just in time for the sunset over the sound and were seated immediately. Friendly waiter who explained the specials for the day. My husband and I decided to share two... More

AMAZING VIEW!!! We stopped here on our way out of OBX for lunch. The view was the reason we stopped - gorgeous palm trees with the ocean in the background. The inside of the restaurant could definitely use some updating but I guess the views make up for that. The food was good. My husband ordered the fish tacos and... More

We always stop here for lunch "on the way in" to Corolla. Great rendezvous spot for our caravan to "get their beach on" on the way to our rental cottage. Did it again this year and were not disappointed.

We had a very nice meal here. I ordered the local tuna cooked rare and it came out cooked perfectly. My dad and my husband also really enjoyed their meals. I had a vodka gimlet to drink, it was very good and they don't scrimp on the liquor!

The lure of a sunset view is what brought us in for dinner. Our first observation was that they were understaffed and it took a very long time to get anything from drinks to ordering, dinner served and check. For a place on an island, I would expect excellent seafood but the selection was uninspired so we ended up with... More
