Sunset has excellent food and service. Their hamburger, barbecue, and Cubano are outstanding casual choices. The mac and cheese is sinfully good. Steaks are a strength, I think. The bar is usually busy, but, oddly, it is usually more quiet to be seated at one of the tables in the bar, versus the dining room - beats me. There is... More

From the outside this restaurant doesn't look too good, how ever once Inside it has a nice energy about it,lots of locals at the bar. There is usually live music outside and seating also but we opt to sit indoors. It wasn't tremendously busy ( 6 pm) but our waitress seemed to take forever to come to our table, once... More

Ate lunch here today with wife; the food is fantastic as is the service. I had the daily special which was a Prime Rib melt with potato salad and wife has a turkey wrap. Both dishes was well prepared and the presentation was outstanding. I would never pass this place up; it's good and can be depended upon for a... More

The service is on the spot and the food out of this world. Not only do they have specials when open but they are always quite tasty. The preparation of their Pittsburg steak is just right. Their mac and cheese some of the best and just like Grandmother's.

This a local favorite of ours, that has a representation as a "watering hole" for the country club set. Both the patio and bar area does do it's share of business. We come here for the occasional dining experience. The appetizers are also good. I usually get a pasta item, which taste great and never too heavy. Hubby usually get... More

It is the "watering hole" on Monday evenings in the area. Half-price, half-pound burgers are just terrific!!!

This is a very nice, local eatery with inside and outside dining. There's a small, stylish dining room inside with a very good bar. If the parking lot looks crowded, stop in anyway because there's room for more. My family and I always find the food to be fresh and tasty. I think we've tried everything on the menu and... More

Well-appointed, but on the small side for inside seating, this restaurant offers both a screened in porch and a small deck for outdoor seating (although still a bit close to the highway). We ordered two salads, greek and spinach (respectively) and they were very tasty and generously proportioned. Menu has a fair number of offerings; the restaurant has a following... More

I routinely hit the Sunset Grill for lunch with my ATS co-workers. Crab cake sandwich is consistently good. Try the blackened tuna, rare to medium rare ONLY. Anything more would ruin this good piece of meat. The wedge salad with grilled shrimp on top is a great tasting, light lunch.

Just finished a great lunch at the Sunset Grill. Of course I had the old favorite Apple-wood Bacon Cheeseburger, with Cesar Salad accompanied with Anchovies. The salad was crisp and the dressing fantastic. My burger was tasty and perfectly cooked. My son had a Pastrami and bratwurst sandwich; fantastic. The service was prompt and excellent. Our server was always there... More
