The Sunset Grill is in the former home of Uranium King Charlie Steen. In the early 1950s Moab was a small farming community. Arches and Canyonlands were places only a lucky few experienced. In 1952 Charles A. Steen, geologist and prospector, put Moab on the world map. The Sunset Grill specializes in hand-cut steaks, prime rib, seafood, and other traditional dishes.

Great food. Great view. fresh food and refreshing beverages. A bit pricey, but worth it. 5 of us paid about $220+tip. located on the top of hill, overlooking Moab UT and the vast desert bellow. Sunset was unbelievable.

Stopped for dinner passing through and decided to try it. Views were amazing, and had a wait time of about 40 mins but we expected that. Staff very friendly and enjoyed overall experience. Duck was good as was prime rib. Wasn’t crazy about the sides...and it was kinda pricey. Restaurant itself was nicely decorated and very clean. I would likely go again if we are out here.More

It's a great experience but you should expect at least an hour wait before sunset and the food is just ok (and very pricey!) I went on my latest trip and when in town 22 years ago. I'll consider this one done and not do...it again.More

Absolutely amazing food with an amazing view. During our stay in Moab, we ate at the Sunset Grill 3 out of our 4 nights for dinner. Great food at a fair price. David, the manager, is personable and you can tell that he truly cares...about the experience that each of his guests (especially us “Florida People”) have at the Sunset Grill. The owner also came out and spent nearly 20 minutes getting to know us and giving us insight and recommendations on local areas. Highly recommend!More

Our experience at Sunset Grill was absolutely perfect. The food, drinks, dessert, and service were all exceptional! Watching the sun set over the canyons was our favorite experience while visiting Moab. The manager himself (David) was the one to come pick us up in the...free shuttle at our hotel and also dropped us off afterwards - he was so personable and friendly!! It’s clear that whatever David is doing at Sunset Grill is completely amazing - we could not have asked for a better dining experience. Highly HIGHLY recommend!! We will be returning soon!More

Same day made reservation for sunset dinner. They placed us upstairs on a window...great view. I had the Idaho trout, tender, flakey, and seasoned well. Mixed vegetables very good mix. Rice a little dry. Wife had the filet which was very good. She had a...good specialty beer; my martini was OK. Service excellent. Visited with the owner. Overall, nice evening, particularly the view. Before scheduling outside table, check the wind forecast.More

Everything was wonderful! My trout was tender and perfectly seasoned, the vegetables were fresh, and the rice was perfect. My wife said her French onion soup was some of the best she’d had. On a side note, I’ve read the reviews for this place and...I cannot believe what some of the people were saying. Either the reviewers were WAY too snooty, or there is a campaign to malign this place. Either way, this restaurant was stellar.More

We had such a wonderful time at sunset grill, can’t put it into words. We came for dinner our first night without any expectations, but returned for a romantic Valentine’s dinner with lobster and Chilean sea bass. The service was fantastic, the people even kinder....Being from chicago, the food rivals some of the best regarded restaurants in Fulton market. We will be returning to sunset grill in the future, and plan to recommend it to any friends or family looking for a breathtaking view, delicious dinner, and good company.More

Whoever put the “Foodies Best Places to Eat in Moab” is obviously not a “foodie.” Please be aware that you are paying for an experience/view and NOT the food. Plus, the experience part of it al was also beyond terrible. The views are fantastic, but...maybe you should consider packing a meal, going for a hike, and enjoying the views of that is what you are after. To give you an idea...the veggies that come with your meal are straight out of a frozen bag that are no where near fresh and taste awful. The “egg noodles” you get with the marinara are just your typical angel hair pasta you get at the grocery store and are over cooked. The pie’s crust was nothing but dough and definitely not cooked. The salmon wasn’t even close to being fresh either. As for the “experience...” we had reservations and after check in, they took two other parties of the same number before us who had reservations 15 and then 30 minutes after our reservation time. I had to ask them why that was the case before they called us in. Then they sat us next to some sort of closet door that two men (probably the owners/managers) kept coming in and out of. The closet was a complete disaster and beyond distracting. The men tried to play it off and make lame jokes about it being where the “Oompa Loompas” lived. These are dining hours...you should never be going in and out of that room while guests are literally bumped up against it. We had one server for the entire basement which led to a two hour “experience” for a simple dinner with no appetizers. Another wild experience was one of the two men mentioned before began walking around to all of the tables with a large cardboard box full of salt and pepper shakers. He placed them on our table, and everyone else’s table near us mid meal. Again...why is this happening now and not before your guests arrive? As for the decor...if you are into green and orange walls with dinosaurs, records, magazine clippings, and other tacky stuff, this is the place for you. If this is what you look for in fine dining and a romantic atmosphere, go for it. As for me...I will never be back until new management is in place and a major overhaul is completed. Without a doubt, the management is a problem. Both my wife and I are in customer service related businesses and this was a prime example of what not to do. Step up your game and you could be one of the best restaurants in this part of the state/country because of location alone. Until then, you will continue to be “poor” at best. Those that gave this place five stars must love terrible food, horrendous decor, and crappy service from the very get go. This is as honest and true of a review you will get. Pay close attention and choose wisely.More

This is a must go to restaurant. You will not be disappointed! The menu is great, the staff is wonderful, the views are awesome. We had the best time ever. The most fun part of this story is I had lost my wallet while in...Moab and had given up any hope of having it returned when out of the blue it was found by one of the members of the Sunset grill! I thought I had lost it hiking! They contacted me and happily shipped it back to me. We are so thankful!! pam from Colorado!!More
