Beautiful sunset

We ate here our first night of vacation and enjoyed a beautiful sunset over the sound. The atmosphere was a fun one, but the food was just so-so. I would go back for drinks and maybe appetizers to enjoy the sunset from the outside seating, but not for dinner again.

We visited the Sunset Grille and Duck despite the middle in reviews simply because our family was hungry, and it was beginning to get late into the evening. I would have rather had fast food. The inside of the restaurant was old and drab. Desperately in need of a remodel or at least a facelift. We had tuna, and we... More

I know there are a lot of bugs down there and an outside tiki bar on the sound will draw them in but it wouldn't kill them to hose down the place every so often. We got there on a Wednesday afternoon early to get seats outside in the tiki bar but it was so filthy with dead bugs on... More

We went for my husband's birthday with a group of 13 for an early dinner. Chef accommodated us by allowing us to order from the dinner menu even though it was 3:30, technically still lunch. My beef tips were great and very tender, my husband's crab legs were good and so were our drinks and appetizers. The waiter was phenomenal... More

If you like warm beer and below average oysters this is the place to go. Had to get the waitress to ice up the beer pitcher and glasses to get a cold beer. She did it with a good additude though which was the only thing good except for the view. No raw bar although it is advertised as having... More

We went in a large party of 17 and were seated promptly upon arrival for an early dinner. The Sunset Grille was very accommodating of seating us outside and then moving us to a table inside when it became to hot for the children before we even ordered. We had a bunch of appetizers all which were good:Crispy Shrimp Rolls,... More

Ate here on a Monday night during the height of the busy tourist season. Beer was flat and not very cold, the "special" Shrimp Au Gratin was not fresh, came out of some premixed tub, thrown into a plate and the microwaved on high until it was unbearably scorching hot. No bread basket, no real ambiance except being able to... More

I had the crab cakes. Which weren't bad. But the rest of my table thought their food was over priced. The drinks we ordered were pretty terrible.

We went to the Sunset Grille twice during our stay on the Outer Banks. The first visit was good. We ate lunch outside and enjoyed it very much. We tried their interesting drinks where you buy the container they are served in. Our wait staff was attentive and the food good. However the second visit was a disaster. We arrived... More
