We enjoyed the food and the intimate atmosphere. Of the six, we experienced lobster, salmon and pork chops. Service was adequate, but never had our water freshened and waited for a long time for the check. They don't split the check and that caused some concerns. So the evening ended with strained feelings and an attitude from the staff that... More

Quiet, romantic, little Restaruant overlooking a small harbor on Hilton Head Island. Outstanding cuisine, great wine selection, and superb service. Rack of Lamb is pricey but Well Worth the cost! We found it to be the perfect spot for our 59th Wedding Anniversary. We plan to return on our 60th!!

For an appetizer we had fried oysters (normally do not eat fried food - couldn't resist and they were delicious). For entrees she had the pan seared... More

What an amazing surprise we had when we found the Sunset Grille in the Hilton Head RV Park! Right on the water with fantastic views. Get there for the sunset thus the name! When you go into the restaurant you find a very small but nicely appointed dining room. Actual linen tables clothes on the tables! But what makes this... More

My husband, son, his fiancé & I went to the Sunset Grille last night (Friday).... we have been here several times over the past 16 years while living on the Island. I don't know why we don't go more often because the wonderfully cozy restaurant serves amazingly delicious food. It is plated with great style & the service is five... More

As Linda and her culinary team work their magic creating soups, daily specials and awesome desserts, Hugh and his well trained wait staff cater to the needs of the guest. To accompany the delicious meals offered at Sunset Grille, Hugh has put together an extensive wine list that is well rounded and well priced. If wine is not your drink of choice you can choose from a large selection of spirits or craft beers. Sunset Grille is a casual fine dining restaurant established in 1996 by Linda and Hugh Lockman. Whether you are dining at lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch you will not be disappointed. Sunset Grille has been consistently recognized as one of Hilton Head Islands best kept secrets and was voted by Garden & Gun magazine to have one of the BEST Bloody Mary's in the south. With virtually no advertising it has remained one of the most popular dining destinations on the Island. Along with the fantastic food, great beverage list and attentive service Sunset Grille offers one of the best sunset and water views on Hilton Head Island. Located at the Hilton Head Harbor Marina on the Intracoastal Waterway and overlooking Pinckney Island Wildlife Refuge, it is a view not to be missed!
