The Sunset Grill has to be one of the smallest restaurants I have visited. Of the 10 patrons, my wife and I were the only non-locals. The food was decent and fast. There was a local band on the Saturday night that we visited. The owner's dog greeted each person through the door. We will definently return the next time... More

Small in size but big on fresh seafood. Good place for adults to hang out and catch a great sunset. One of Norfolk ' s best kept secrets.

I can honestly say The Sunset Grill serves the best meals I've ever had!! I get something new each time and have NEVER been disappointed. My all time favorite is the blackened tuna! The fish tacos are their staple and delicous! The building looks a little sketchy and not what you would think when you think of a place serving... More

Went there yesterday for the most delicious fish tacos (blackened flounder) with a citrus salsa! Asked for side of coleslaw- best I've ever had of both and I've had this in numerous places. We are from Maine, and hope to visit there again on our next trip! The owner/cook is full of happiness that shows in the way she prepares... More

Expecting seafood choices but menu consisted of 90% fried dishes or sandwiches. Should have realized Grill meant just that. Price if drinks way too high. Soft drink is $2.50 in a small plastic cup. Very cramped deck w/ stools that were wobbly. Service was friendly.

We stumbled on the Sunset Grill one afternoon as we exited at 4th view from the HRBT. Very small and quaint, just what we were looking for....a casual, neighborhood place on the water. The club sandwich was piled high with meat and ingredients were very fresh. Another dish we tried was the coconut shrimp which came with a delicious sauce... More

She must think that just because she is on the waterfront that it's a 5 star restaurant and can charge 5 star prices. I see what someone said about the $7 draft beer, WHAT? The service wasn't bad because there was no one really in there. But still the food order still got messed up. Which she fixed after some... More

I like the Sunset Grill, honestly. Don't go there really frequently, but several times through the year, generally for boating events. It's a good location if you need a stop and you're on the North end of Willoughby and/or stuck in traffic at the bridge. The staff is friendly and sassy. The food is good--burgers, seafood, etc., all made to... More

This place was super cute and had great food. My husband had the fish and chips which was amazing and I had the blackened scallops. It was a beautiful view and a perfect night. Definitely recommend this place. Staff was friendly and welcoming.

Based on a recommendation from a friend, we visited the Sunset Grill and loved it! We sat outside to enjoy the breeze. The waitress made excellent suggestions. We really enjoyed our dinner in a very casual setting.
