This is a great Norfolk place where sailors and locals gather. Because I'd a sailing event, the parking lot was full. Looks a little shabby and our guests commented on the uncomfortable seats.

You can drive or sail your boat to this great waterside restaurant, which you may not have ever noticed on East Oceanview Drive. While the building on the dock is small and quaint, the heart of the place is big! When the owner/chef came out to make sure everything was tasty, it was obvious that she is well known and... More

My husband and i were reccommended this place by a neighbor and decided to try it one day for lunch. When we arrived we sat outside and the owner came over and introduced herself to us and made small talk with us throughout the entire meal. She is very personable and could not have been nicer. We ordered the nachos... More

Once you find your way in, the place is an ok local hangout. Nothing fancy. The food was good, the prices are good, service was good, and the live entertainment (a singer) was very good. There was a nice sunset view from the outdoor porch (only).

The food here was very good, everyone in our party of six ordered something different And it was all good. The decor is very basic nothing fancy. Reminds me of a hole in he wall, 30 people would fill up the place. The view is good right on the water. Service was decent and friendly. Some would say the prices... More

You can't give a restaurant a good review because of the view. The owner has friends that she has post here to give 5 star reviews. I was charged $12 for a 7&7 that I couldn't even taste the liquor. $8 draft beers? The only thing that makes this restaurant fun is the people you go there with.

First time, surprised as soon as we pulled into parking heard music from outside deck. We sat on deck which had singer who was pretty good. Took a while to order but food came quickly. Shrimp was huge. Fish and chips was also good. Prices a little high but you are paying for great view and entertainment. Good place for... More

My wife and I went to the Sunset Grill for a late lunch/early dinner. The food was outstanding! Some of the best seafood I have ever had. However the way the manager or owner talked to her employee while in the kitchen was terrible! No one should talk to someone like she did to this gentleman. Yes he seemed disorganized... More

The food was fresh caught and tasted fine. Good service as well. Not a big place, but could accommodate a party of 10-12 folks. A little out of the way for us not being familiar with the area.

the sunset grill is our "just around the corner - let's get some delicious fish" restaurant. We always got very good and fresh food. the atmosphere is family like. the owner personally welcomes you with some personal small talk. live music on a regular basis complets the good experiances! for us a stomping ground!
