Sunsets is Prime real estate and what a shame that such a beautiful relaxing atmosphere is completely destroyed with every course that comes out, the lobster bisque was cold, thick like a spread or a dip, my husbands nachos were next, how bad can one mess up nachos you ask? Lol well they were cold, canned. Chili was the cheapest quality you can get and the chips stale,, then the Cobb salad with chicken was next, the chicken cutlets was easily identified as a freezer burned cutlet that was cooked probably frozen judging by how hard it was and from the color and the salad just bad in general, I will say, if you want a casual place to go and relax for a drink and enjoy the beauty of the jersey shore? Yes, this is an option, if your hungry and want good food? This is not the place, being in the hospitality industry for many years, I seriously wished I could walk to the back kitchen and ask the cook, what the hell are you thinking?!?!! And let me show you how to do it while your explaining this to me!

Love it...hanging at the outside bar dancing to the DJs is great.....bartenders are fantabulous.....and the whole atmosphere is really great. I love this place; I'm there every Friday night.....and the food is excellent!

The food was okay, but the life around the bar, the music (not necessarily great quality, but very entertaining) and watching the sun set over the water with the boats moored in front of you make it worth a visit

Having changed hands 3 or 4 times in just the last few years, the food and service at this waterfront bar/restaurant have been on a roller coaster ride, bad sadly it always ends up going downhill. It's sad. The food is boring, it's way too loud inside and out, and the service, although at times friendly and efficient, suffers from a kitchen that just cannot deliver anything in a timely manner. Too bad - this could be a helluva place. It isn't...

If you think having a 7 pm reservation for 4 on a Thursday night means anything to the management at Sunsets, think again. We arrived at 6:45 and waited 45 minutes at the over crowded indoor bar for our table. When we were finally seated, somone plunked a bread basket on the table and left. Ten minutes later, four people were seated at the table next to us and their order was taken. Finally we asked if we could order. Actually members of our party went to the manager twice! When the waiter finally came he said they were very busy and the waiters were rotating so they really didn't know which tables they had. Huh? Anyway he took our drink orders brought the drinks and didn't come back. Again we asked to order food. Now we are talking 8:30. We were more than ready to order! It was Lobster night......You guessed it, sorry - outta lobster too. With that, our party of 4 stood up and said, "enough" and left the drinks on the table.. Can't understand why this restaurant which was having a great night couldn't have adequate staffing? Very disappointed. .
