Average food extraordinary view

There is no better way to unwind than to have a meal by the water at sunset. While the food is nothing to rave about, the view more than compensates and everybody does their best to make it work. Lots of children and noise on the inside so opt for the deck but do go and unwind.

Great food, great wine, great view. A perfect date night. The seafood was fresh, the service was impeccable. I'd return!

It is a seasonal restaurant - closed several winter months. But when it is open one can get some really unique drinks and some dynamite seafood.

We have eaten here several times on our trips to Duck. Usually we find the evening meals to be average and the place is crowded. Someone suggested we try their breakfast and we were certainly glad we did. Generous portions and great taste.

Was unsure of the staff as they initially wanted to put us under the TV instead of at a window, saying that the management didn't want them putting tables together. This was when the restaurant was not full and there were plenty of tables. They did put 2 tables together for our party of 5, and the waitress was terrific.... More

Sunset Grille is perfectly named. The sunset was perfect and the grille (food) was excellent. Our server was friendly and the atmosphere was pleasant. We especially enjoyed watching the sun go down on sound from the top floor, with the huge windows.

This restaurant is a must visit when in the outer banks. The food was amazing and the view was breath taking on the top floor.

Went for breakfast, every single thing was great. Had pancakes, eggs, hash potatoes, bacon...all piping hot and good. Service was over the top excellent. Pre thanksgiving morning was just great eating breakfast overlooking the water. We had a so much coffee before we left, you could have poured us out. Will return every time we can.

The Sunset Grill is appropriately named as the sunsets on the sound are spectacular. There is an outside bar and deck area for enjoying the view and waiting for your table. I have been here with a large group in the summer and we were accommodated on the second floor of the restaurant. I don't remember the wait being long... More

Waterfront and located right on the sound and a fun place. Food is good, some items are a little spicy. Good service and a large menu. Appetizers are interesting and lots of choices.
