“Can have a long wait”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Tried to go on the weekend but by 6pm there was a long wait for tables. Went back for lunch during the week. Fish was nicely cooked and reasonably priced. Nice service.

“Great Chowder”
Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

On our way to Saint Augustine Beach we stopped for lunch at the Sunset Grille. No great surroundings, not on the beach or overlooking the water, but GREAT chowder ! It is advertised in the Restaurant Times, a magazine in Saint Augustine, as a 33 times winner of the Great Chowder Debate. We believe it! We were happy with our decision and will stop here again if we are out that way.

“Excellent seafood with Nice Beachside Ambiance”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Sunset Grille is always a treat. You know that the food is going to be good, and you know it's going to be fun as well--such a nice combination. The atmosphere is casual, so you can relax and enjoy your lunch or dinner. My husband and I had two of our favorites--he the fish and chips, and I the coconut shrimp with pina colada dipping sauce (yum!). We began with a cup of the New England clam chowder, which was delicious. Our server, despite the very busy restaurant, was attentive, pleasant, and efficient--he couldn't do enough for us. My coconut shrimp was actually an appetizer, but you can order it as an entree. The shrimp are large and succulent--better than some of the more highly touted places for shrimp in my opinion; so, if you aren't in the mood for a complete dinner, you'll be more than satisfied with the appetizer portion, and you can steal a french fry or two from your companion's dinner to round things out! We try to go early in order to get parking and avoid a long wait--usually before six will get you a hassle free entry--but it is a very popular place, so you can almost always expect a little competition for that parking place or table. It is worth it.

“Great food!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I wasn't expecting anything more than a burger and fries from a restaurant across from the beach. The windows were open to let in the ocean breeze. What a surprise! The burgers are terrific. But try one of their salads with fried cheese, chowders, or any of their other menu items. You won't be sorry! Go when the weather is nice enough for them to open the windows and enjoy the ocean breeze too!
