Ate at the sun fish grill last night. Had the ahi tuna appetizer and it was amazing. On site owner that truly cares about his restaurant. Love to see that. Fresh fish and very reasonable prices.

We will definitely return! Food was delicious, wait staff extremely helpful, John the manager was friendly and welcoming. Our meals were served in a timely manner even though crowded. Loved the gluten free notations in menu. If you are GF try the crab cakes.

Dinner for 6 adults and four kids last night would have been good except it took over an hour to get adult entrees. Service was okay, but minimal ( i.e. stack of plates provided for appetizers). Place was packed. Reservations required. $300+ bill for dinner and a round of drinks. Probably would not go back.

Thank you for your review. Dinner for a group of 10 with drinks, appetizers and dinner for 300.00. Not bad. Not sure what you expected for timing of your dinner, but one hour in a "packed" restaurant with drinks, apps. and dinner is really pretty good. I'm sure you enjoyed the food and I know we can do better for... More

Sun Fish Grill, this is where we dine out in Corolla, we are never disappointed. A fun, casual, beachy atmosphere – great menu options for the kids. We always check out the daily specials first, but our go to dishes are the steamed scallops, ahi tuna, she-crab bisque, and fried green tomatoes (different but really tasty!). The staff are always...

Went here last year and am still traumatized by my experience. Party of 12 enter at 5:30pm was told a 45 minute wait in a very packed restaurant(in their defense) We waited 90! Minutes to be seated. The waitress took an additional 30 minutes to serve our drinks (mostly water and beer) to our party. We all ordered different meals... More

Greg, Please allow me to respond to your review of Sun Fish Grill. It is obvious to me that you did not eat here. We never showed anyone our kitchen except the health inspector who gave us a score of 99.5 out of 100. Never have we had a food violation. Our handling of chicken does not occur the way... More

With so many good dining options, we're sorry we chose this one. The food was average, at best and the service was below that. Our server told us he had just moved to the area, but I'm not sure if he had experience serving before this. We waited for our first contact, our drinks and our food. There were multiple... More

Thank you for your review. When you walk into a restaurant in which you are greeted and served properly that is a good sign of things to come. The food, the atmosphere and the good times. In June we had a few new servers, seems like you had one. Some met our standards some did not. Our crew is awesome... More

Thank you for your review. In a few words you said it all. This year we added items to our menu for the Gluten Free crowd. We also offer a few items that are not on our menu but are staff favorites. Ask your server about our Black Bean Burger. See you next year. More

My wife and I came to Sun Fish Grill for a little getaway from the kids. It looked like it was starting to get busy so we decided to sit at the bar. Such a great choice! The bartender Shea was so friendly. She suggested we try the Strawberry Lemonade and Coronarite. Both were very tasty and quenched our thirst.... More
