During our brief day drip to Shelter Island, my boyfriend wanted to check out Sunset Beach (and so the review is based only on the restaurant/bar and not on the hotel itself). So I made a late lunch reservation at the restaurant. We pull up to the hotel in our car and already see a party scene that looks more appropriate for Montauk or the Hamptons. As the hotel parking lot is roped off, I hop out of the car to ask if we can park there given we have reservations (we got there right at 3:15PM for our 3:15PM reservation). The guy who was manning parking said we had to park further down the street on the beach side of the hotel and that he sees no reservations until 4PM. Confused, I went to the hostess who asked me if the parking people were giving us trouble. She comes with me back to the parking lot and tells the guy to let us in because we have reservations, to which the guy then gives some weird response thinking I was asking for other people. We park the car and were told by the hostess that our table would be ready soon. We were led to a table that wasn't ready for us before redirected to outdoor seating on sand. The waitress we had seemed underenthusiastic in her demeanor. We opted not to stay long and just snack on the warm artichoke and warm petite Basque cheese. I had a Summer Fling cocktail. Everything was okay, but rather expensive for what they were. Adding the mediocre service made the experience feel as if coming to Sunset Beach was all about the scene and not about the experience itself. The only bright point was the hostess who went out of her way to come with me to sort things out with the parking lot and made sure we were seated as soon as possible. Otherwise, save your dining experience for classier places like the Pridwin or the Chequit.

My wife and I spent 1 night at sunset beach looking for a good night sleep and there was party with blasting music and people scream until 3 AM on the room on top of us. We tried calling down but nobody answered, then we went to front desk and nobody was there. the next day we told them and they showed no concern just said sorry about that. Beach was nice, bar was nice but the hotel and room was very minimal. Would return for an afternoon but would not sleep there again.

Stopped by for some fries and frose! Have stayed here in the past and love the rooms, but came by boat this time for a snack and a drink, which is super easy with the launch services. Super fun and great vibe and the food is always fantastic!

We recently had dinner at Sunset Beach and the view was spectacular, ambiance perfect and the food was delicious! The staff was friendly and professional and above all was accommodating! Don't miss out on the gem on Shelter Island!

This is a nice place to take in the sunset on the island. The restaurant and bar is pricey as you can easily drop $300 or more per couple. The upside is the atmosphere which is a good representation of island life.
