It's a little bit of a drive if you're staying downtown. This is an older, well-established restaurant with very tasty, innovative food and great service. I had the lamb bolognaise, which was delicious. Our friends both had a burger. They were a little overcooked, but they said it was still quite tasty. The desserts looked amazing, but we were too...

10 PM to Midnight on Friday and Saturday the ENTIRE menu is HALF PRICE. BUT 12oz bottle of craft beer will run you $5 (way too pricy!!) Domestic bottles are $4... The nachos were pretty good (8/10) I just wish they had a bit more cheese on them! The VOODOO pasta was my favorite item; super filling and had just... More

We arrived for a 6:45 reservation, got seated immediately and then waited 30 minutes for our server to take our order. We sat and watched everyone around us come in, eat and leave. And still we waited. There were other patrons, but the place was not busy. Our dinner(a bowl of soup and a burger) arrived 90 minutes after we... More

The location of this grill is perfect, just far enough from the tourist hangout of Broadway that you feel like you aren't just eating to be eating. Yet it is close enough to downtown events that you can easily drive the short distance after dinner. I am not an easy person to feed, being gluten free and I don't eat... More

Randy Rayburn, proprietor, is a pillar of the Nashville community and is the ultimate at giving back and sharing expertise and resources. Sunset Grill is a true reflection of him and his skilled, easy going staff. Have a request for something special or a unique preparation? DONE! It's nice to know that your expectations will be exceeded, as Sunset Grill... More

I got the red grouper, with a delicious couscous involving chick peas, pine nuts and fennel. It was presented well and the service was fabulous. My grandaughter got a Kids meal BLT and she raved over it. For an 8 year old to rave over food it must have been amazing. They use Benton Bacon which is always marvelous (I... More

Sunday early evening the place was just about empty. Guess most everybody else was down at The District. Given the few numbers of guests, I would have expected service to be a bit peppier. When my server did arrive, she could not have been more pleasant, though a bit more absent than I would have expected. The Sunset Caesar was... More

Well, I don't even know where to start..... My family and I decided to dine here for lunch for my Mother's Day treat. We ordered the lump crab cakes for appetizers. In a word: Ghastly. For one thing, each crab cake cost us $12. If you're going to order such an expensive appetizer, you're probably going to have high expectations.... More
