Popular waterfront dinning hidden behind a boat yeard. Seafood dominates the menu. Everything is fresh and flavorful. Lunch and dinner, but call for dinner reservations.

What's great about dinner with a view to an ocean inlet? Everything! The Sunset Grill is inside The Norwalk Cove Marina and sits way down at the end on the water where the yachts and dingys are moored. Doesn't look like much from the outside but more quaint and upscale "rustic" on the inside. Truth be told, since this was... More

Be prepared for a busy place. You'll have to wait for a table. We sat at the bar, had drinks and then dinner. The gazpacho with crab is different but really good. Very refreshing. We had the halibut for dinner. It was tasty and not over cooked. Nice dish. Graham was our bartender and server. Very pleasant and efficient guy.

We love this place. Very friendly, attentive service, GREAT fresh seafood, waterside dining, dogs allowed in outdoor seating area. A tad pricey but worth it. Full bar, did I mention fresh seafood. A little hard to find, located in Cove Marina all the way at the back of the property. Dog - friendly and close to Calf Pasture Beach (no... More

There are no happy hour prices here and the cost of drinks and appetizers is ridiculous. But you pay for the view. It's one of the only places in town on the water for cocktails. And the live music is a nice touch.

Had heard that the food was particularly good at this marina restaurant. The rumor was correct. The food, primarily seafood, but non seafood items as well, was very good. Service was quite good too.

The location is really nice - super close to the water and plenty of outdoor seating. We went early on Saturday for lunch and we were seated at a nice outdoor table. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate - so we had to move inside because of the rain. Once inside, we had no idea who our waiter was. Someone from... More

This waterfront venue offers delicious seafood,/american fare, great selection of cocktails to go with their fabulous view as you sip your drinks on deck overlooking the Norwalk Harbour.. This place is a must for lunch/drinks/or dinner as you literally feel like you are... More

I'm torn on this place... Great location, fantastic views, adequate service staff, but exceptionally mediocre food and extortionate prices. Would I go back? Yes, of course - for the ambience. But I would probably eat somewhere else, enjoy some drinks and catch the sunset.

We enjoyed an anniversary dinner here. We sat outside and had a nice view. The food was an average seafood fare. Shrimp on my mixed grill were a little dry. Lobster bisque was very good.Staff was nice and attentive.
