I have eaten at Sunset a number of times. I have found that just a simple sandwich and fries is the best way to go. It's very much more a pub than a restaurant. The bar is dark and large, the dining area is somewhat small and the outside patio/porch are great if the weather allows. There are a number... More

We have not been here for dinner in over a year, yet it is not far from our home. We enjoyed a wonderful meal of salmon for me and quesadillas for my spouse. We started off with a Caprese salad with Hanover tomatoes (seasonal, unfortunately),; really delicious. The food was really good all delivered promptly by our efficient and friendly... More

Double check your order! A ToGo hamburger with request for Ketchup, Mustard and Mayo resulted in a cheeseburger plus fries with no condiments or cutlery.

We stopped for lunch at the Sunset Grill. We had to wait at the Hostess Stand for a rather long period of time, until a server walked by and told us to sit wherever we pleased. After we were seated, we had to wait a rather long period of time before anyone would give us a menu. After we reviewed... More

This was six men having lunch, everyone got something different. For lunch you can get sandwiches, burgers, soup or salads. We all got different sandwiches. Everyone was very fond of their choice except for me. I got a club sandwich ($10.95) which had nice turkey and ham on it but it was all wadded up in the center of the... More

While taking a break from riding down I-64, we drove through Manakin Sabot and happened to see a lot of cars at this restaurant. Knowing this is a good sign, we stopped for supper. It happened to be BBQ night, so I got the BBQ special which was $5. We also tried the onion rings which were great. It was... More

A nice place west of Short Pump. I have been many times for lunch and never disappointed. The crab cake, sailor, Cuban, blacken tuna, and burgers all great! Love the potato salad as a side. Dark warming decor and atmosphere. Outside seating and bar when the weather is nice. Sometimes the service can be slow out there. A definite must... More

We were driving around looking at the leaves and decided to grab a late lunch. Came across Sunset Grill and gave it a try. Had the Philly steak special; it was great! Service was superb. I'll stop again when in the neighborhood.

My wife and I ate here on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. We thought it was odd and cheap that they don't offer free refills on fountain soda. Also all of the condiments we noticed are off brand. The ketchup is also off brand and lousy. My sandwich was unremarkable and my wife's food was just passable. My tuna sandwich... More
