“Great burgers”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Some of the best burgers on the island while cheaper than most. Generous portions although not a lot of choices.

“You want a burger? Eat here!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

The food is plentiful, the beer is cold and the service is very friendly. No, it's not a high-end restaurant, just really good food and won't leave your wallet empty.

“So satisfied!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

I am a very health conscious eater and was so pleased with the quality of the food I received at the Sunshine Grill. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. What a bonus that the restaurant is on the grounds of the hotel! I learned to eat at about 3:30 in the afternoon to avoid the rush!

“Very good food - BEWARE a potentially very long wait”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Everything you read in the reviews of this spot are on the money. The food is excellent. The restaurant boasts a mission to make the best of every type of food they serve. They have won 2 annual awards for their fish tacos and the burgers are some of the biggest I have ever seen.

The service is very pleasant, especially the Canadian servers!

Where you may find an issue is with a long wait. This is a very small restaurant in the sunshine suites resort. My count might be 15 tables inside (seating 2 or 4) and a few outside by the pool. Since this is the #1 spot on TripAdvisor with a location right next to the mega Ritz Carleton hotel, you are going to get many people coming here.

We arrived at 12:30 and we were quoted a 30-45 minute wait. Our wait was over an hour. Once we were seated we waited almost 30 minutes for our food. This was a combination of having a table of 10 being served just before us and the fact that the food is prepared fresh with very high quality, which takes time. Despite waiting a very long time, the food was very good and service pleasant.

As this is the restaurant for this particular resort, you may see guests of the hotel staying a very long time at their tables well after their meals are done. This was a surprise to me, but it is possible that they feel it is their right to take all the time they like. If I was a guest at the resort, it would be annoying to me to have a flood of "outsiders" descending on the small pool area in large numbers all hanging around most of the mid afternoon waiting for tables. It can't be relaxing to be lounging by the pool with a person shouting out - "Cartwright, Party of 4" - every so often... I haven't seen reviews of this resort, but it would certainly be an issue for me.

If you time it right, you will have a great experience, if not, it's best to walk away and try another day. Whatever you choose, you will really like the food.

“Best hamburger ever”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

I stayed at the hotel and ate lunch and dinner here a few times. The fish tacos were great. At another meal I had the burger with arugula, blue cheese and bacon. It was the best burger I've ever had. The mixed fried hash accompanying was also great-lightly fried onions, jalapeños, mushrooms, and fries, all delicious. The food and drinks were all reasonably priced. I highly recommend eating here.
