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

Fantastic service. Had the salmon, very flavorful. A little pricey. Gets crowded at night. Perfect for happy hour on a warm day.

Went to this lovely restaurant on 1 of our 2 night trip to Nashville. Food was spectaular! Risotto appetizer was amazing, lamb osso bucco was very tasty as well. Service was impeccable & we got seated right away (we had a reservation) this definitely made our trip to Nashville just a little bit better.

I had been a fan of sunset grill until this visit. Bartender was very rude, pretty much ignored our table of 5, and was insulting when we asked about the happy hour that was still listed on their website. We will not be returning.

Another great meal at Sunset Grill. This was our first visit to Sunset grill on a busy Saturday. With the efficiency of the wait staff and kitchen you would have thought it was a slow Monday. Everything was outstanding. You must try the Habanero bread pudding.

There was some confusion over our reservation and we were forced to wait while a table was prepared. Drinks took FOREVER to arrive so long that we asked twice about them. The food took a long time too but was more than worth the wait. The staff knew the menu and gladly pointed out the 3-4 gluten free options. The... More

We've been here both at lunch and in the evenings and enjoyed our visits both times. The food is very good and the location is very central!

Whenever meeting there with friends I always order the SteamPot. It is a black kettle of rice packed with crab, shrimp and mussles with corn on the cob and new potatoes. It has just the right amount of seasoning to give a zing to the flavor without masking the items included. The patio is great for dinner as well.
