Disappointed that the menu had changed the day before our visit. I wanted the scallops with the pesto sauce, but chef could not prepare it. Very surprising for a restaurant of this caliber that the chef was unable to accommodate a day later! Ordered the Lamb shank which was good, but under seasoned.

I've tried shrimp and grits at any restaurant that offers them on the menu, I love them that much. So when my husband took me to lunch on my birthday to Sunset Grille , of course I was a happy camper when I saw them on the menu. While waiting we enjoyed the most gorgeous view. The plate that was... More

Dinner on a Friday evening in early July. We started by sharing the Crab Cake appetizer. Good but not great. Our entrees were the scallops and the shrimp and grits. The scallops were very good; the grits were out of this world. The restaurant is small and somewhat hard to find but it is worth the effort. Highly recommended!

Had a wonderful Sunday Brunch. The house-smoked duck salad was amazing. My daughter had fried chicken and biscuits which was also very good. The Bloody Mary was truly one of the best I've ever had. This place is a hidden gem.

My husband and I had dinner at this restaurant last night. The restaurant is quaint, service was friendly . I had a fried oyster appetizer that was good but too much sauce. I had the halibut special that was delicious. My husband had filet minion it was excellent. I would recommend this restaurant!

Don't miss this restaurant! Arrive by boat, car, or RV...but arrive. Be sure to have reservations. Food is prepared fresh from order. The view is unmatched, great service...and did I mention the food? The fish is expertly prepared. Best scallops ever! The oyster appetizer is fantastic...ordered it twice. Must have reservations...maybe 10 or 12 tables on a second story glass,... More

What a view from this restaurant! We were staying in the campground, and met my parents here for dinner. The food was delicious, but fairly pricey, even for Hilton Head. Our reservation was somehow lost, even with a phone confirmation, however the staff was very accommodating to still let us stay.

I must admit, when approaching this place I was not sure I would even be staying to eat...and after seeing the inside, complete with its plastic table cloths and worn wood paneling, I was ready to walk out. Upon first impression I definitely wasn't convinced the accolades this place had been given were deserved. However, my wiser half convinced me... More

We visited the restaurant for our 15th anniversary dinner. My husband picked the restaurant as a surprise. When we arrived I didn't know what to expect. I was a bit leary due to the appearance of the building. I was absolutely delighted with everything I ate. Every dish was full of flavor and beautifully presented. The restaurant also provides a...
