Cheap. Fast. Friendly

I don't know why I don't like this place, but I just don't. The food doesn't seem to have any taste, I get the feeling that the interior of the building needs a good cleaning.

Went here with friends for dinner. My first impression was the place was very dated and not particularly clean. We were seated immediately as the place only had perhaps 10 people in it and most of those were elderly. I was leery when I saw the menu had at least 8-10 pages because that is usually an indicator that none... More

We stayed with our cousin's in Waukesha and they took us to their favorite restaurant - the Sunset Family Restaurant. We first went on Friday evening and had the Perch Fish Fry. Came with a beer. It was also my birthday and they gave me a crème puff to go. Which was superb. Then we went back on Sunday morning... More

I thought everything was good. The service was excellent. The place was pretty busy, but the wait time was not long. Some one was always coming a round with coffee, or more water. The prices were excellent.

I like options, but this place has a menu like a novel! The food is ok, but the service is good. Its very family friendly and conveniently located, so we will try again.

The Sunset Family restaurant is just that. Good food, friendly service and bang for your buck are a few of the positive aspects of this place. Breakfast is served all day for one thing and the liver and onions is a treat which is getting increasingly more difficult to find on most menus. We visited with our son, his wife... More

We first stopped for breakfast and have now tried all meals there (lunch-dinner). The food has always been top notch as far as quality goes, and service has been decent. There are many choices, but what do you expect from a greek family owned restaurant. I look forward to going back soon!

We wanted to try a different family restaurant in Waukesha, so we went to the Sunset Family Restaurant. It was past breakfast on Sunday, so we had brunch - I had the julienne salad, and my wife had the lemon chicken. The salad was well-made, with lots of ham and chicken. The lemon chicken was very good. Service was slow,... More

This used to be a pretty good restaurant. Same owners but a lot of new staff. Stopped in for lunch and ordered an open face turkey sandwich. The turkey was a lunchmeat style rather than turkey slices. Quite a disappointment. I guess the economy has led to cheaper meats.
