Super Surf and Turf!

Seriously delicious loin steak and grilled ahi tuna with pickled ginger & wasabi. At $33.00 it was easily enough to share. Ok, so the food was very good; the atmosphere, however, was not conducive to dining. It's a bar. Period. By 730PM on a Friday night we could hear the discordant raucous and... read more

I am a frequent flyer at this restaurant, for dinner. Somehow I had never managed to make it in for Sunday brunch. We had biscuits with gravy, ham and cheese omelette, and has browns. All were very tasty. The service was fast and friendly, as usual. I heard a champagne cork popping, a nice sound.

We had lunch here today and I was very disappointed. It is nice inside and the staff is also nice and very kind. However, I ordered the shaved roast beef sandwich and was disappointed in the taste. It was a basic sandwich with au jus on the side but it tasted off and put me off. I ate 2/3 of... More

The place didn't look great from the road, but looked great inside. The staff was attentive and the food was great, though slightly expensive.

I frequent this restaurant often for both lunch and dinner. Very good food. Entertainment is generally good and with outside seating in nice weather. The only reason I didn't rate as excellent is the service is slow sometimes.

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

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
