Terrific Hosts, Staff,Food and island sunsets!

Linda and Hugh are amazing-the staff they have on their team is outstanding. The food is some of the best we've experienced-world class! From local favorites-shrimp and grits, fresh seafood, fried oysters-you cannot miss! A true highlight of any visit to SC!

A local resident recommended the Sunset Grille to us. We are glad we listened. We enjoyed one of the best meals we've ever had on Hilton Head Island. The view of the sunset was spectacular as was the food and drink. We loved the unique bloody Mary's. My husband enjoyed the delightful Cajun fried oysters. Our entrees were wonderful. The... More

Just moved to the island recently after vacationing here and falling in love, so our realtor recommended Sunset Grille for brunch because my husband and I've never been. It's one of the Island's best kept secrets, tucked away on a peaceful marina with stunning water views. I must say that my meal was one of the best if not the... More

Went there early for dinner (prior to the sunset rush). Had the fried flounder special which was excellent. Because we got there at 6PM, we almost had the place to ourselves. The rush started around 7:30 (8:15 sunset). Service was good and afterward, we went down and sat in the swings and watched the sunset. We were the only ones... More

We visited this place because it was rated high on this site, however it was a big disappointment. The food was just average definately not worth the $30 dollar price tag for one dish. Not sure why on this site they thought the bread pudding was great because again it was not that great. I've had better for sure. Oh... More

We come to Hilton Head twice a year and never miss a dinner (or two!) at Sunset Grille. The staff are wonderful, the view is gorgeous and the food just delicious!

We heard about this restaurant on Thursday after golfing with another couple and they highly recommended it for the food and the sunsets. We made reservations for Friday night, our last night in Hilton Head. We got the last table. I had their pork chop which was thick and juicy. They asked me how I wanted it cooked. I said... More

I read lots of glowing reviews, and was excited to go here. First of all, when we called to get reservations' (around 3pm) no one answered the phone. The recording states that lunch is from 11-1,(or something like that) and dinner starts at 6pm. If you wish to make a reservation, you leave a message. The recording gives no indication... More

The Sunset Grille is small but big on service and food! We loved their smoky flavor bloodymary. The seafood dishes were wonderfully flavored. It was impossible not to stuff ourselves. We enjoyed the soft shell crab and the smoked fish appetizer. Their
