Great dinner, fun atmosphere. Get a window seat and look out at the marina. Cajun fried oysters, duck with shrimp and grits were great. Make a reservation or you won't get in. Well worth it

Located in a high end $$$$$ motor coach park. It's to die for. Sorry for the preposition at the end of the sentence. Try the shrimp and grits or the Sunday brunch. Make reservations as it might be tough getting in.

The Sunset Grille is located near the Intracoastal Bridge as one enters Hilton Head Island. Sunset Grille is a casual fine dining restaurant established in 1996 by Linda and Hugh Lockman. Expect excellent management and service. The Lockman family had the foresight to establish a virtual goldmine. It is a clear mistake to be reluctant to visit the Sunset Grille... More

We were staying at the Hilton Head Harbor RV Resort & Marina. Sunset Grille happens to be located at the edge of the property - walking distance. So, we went there for dinner on a Saturday night in February. Being right on the water, you have a very nice view of passing boats. That is nice but the real surprise... More

My wife and I had a Saturday night dinner at the Seafood Grill, which we had not previosuly visited. The restuarant is located on the intracoastal waterway, on the mainland side of Hilton Head Island, and has very limited parking. And, it is on the second floor of a building only accessible via a long, steep set of stairs. They... More

Last night we went back to the Sunset Grille for our Valentine celebration! Never a disappointment. Our evening couldn't have been more perfect. The service was outstanding all around and our waitress Jen made our evening even more special. The champaign salad is exquisite. I had their signature shrimp and grits. My husband ordered the pork chop. Both we're wonderful.... More

Our first visit to this hidden gem. I had a wonderful duck breast in a cherry balsamic demi-glaze and my husband had the scallops with tomatoes, artichokes, with fusili pasta. Some of the best food we have had on the Island. Fantastic views, though we missed the sunset, but we did watch the passing ships. Cozy atmosphere with very friendly... More

A friend and I had wanted to eat here because of all the local good reviews. We had a wonderful, tasty scallop/corn chowder yesterday. Parking is limited and steep stairs could be a problem for some people. There are so many wonderful lunch places at HH that this one would not get a return visit from me.

OK, that was in bad taste. You see, I am one of the 200 owners of the HHI RV Resort & Marina Club..and we lease space to this cute 44 seat restaurant (which makes us money every time you dine here)..But, we like our privacy & keeping this little jewel & its great food to ourselves. Well, I've blown that... More
