Description: As Linda and her culinary team work their magic creating soups, daily specials and awesome desserts, Hugh and his well trained wait staff cater to the needs of the guest. To accompany the delicious meals offered at Sunset Grille, Hugh has put together an extensive wine list that is well rounded and well priced. If wine is not your drink of choice you can choose from a large selection of spirits or craft beers. Sunset Grille is a casual fine dining restaurant established in 1996 by Linda and Hugh Lockman. Whether you are dining at lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch you will not be disappointed. Sunset Grille has been consistently recognized as one of Hilton Head Islands best kept secrets and was voted by Garden & Gun magazine to have one of the BEST Bloody Mary's in the south. With virtually no advertising it has remained one of the most popular dining destinations on the Island. Along with the fantastic food, great beverage list and attentive service Sunset Grille offers one of the best sunset and water views on Hilton Head Island. Located at the Hilton Head Harbor Marina on the Intracoastal Waterway and overlooking Pinckney Island Wildlife Refuge, it is a view not to be missed!

The Sunset Grill is located at the Hilton Harbor Marina next to a RV resort about 1/2 mile after coming on to the island. It is not listed in the dining guides. We found this place several years ago because we visit the RV resort. Our "job" is to find the best lunch restaurants. The Sunset Grill is recognized at one of the best and is our favorite. When in the area we have been eating there about 2 days a week. They are not open for lunch on Monday or Saturday. They have a Sunday brunch which is also excellent. The view of the intercoastal waterway is an excellent amenity. Service is also outstanding with very friendly and responsive wait staff. We learned that most had been there for many years. If a window table is desired we suggest calling ahead for reservations. Sometimes it is not a problem and other times it would be. It is not handicap accessible so the patrons need to be able to climb one flight of steps.

The food and service here are excellent. Great place to go at sunset as it's on the water. Don't let the location scare you away. Not handicap accessible and it's a hike downstairs to use the restroom.

My husband and I visited the Sunset Grille last night with friends from New England. Everything about our dinner together was great - the view, the wonderful server, Jenna, the cocktails, the appetizers and the entrees. Our friends LOVED their experience at the Sunset Grille and our evening there was one of the highlights of their trip to SC. We didn't have room to try the desserts which sounded delicious. I have no doubt that we will return soon either by ourselves or with other visitors. Consistently wonderful.

Amazing place. Small and cozy, though not cramped at all. Definately make reservations, as there are no more than 16-20 tables. Presentation as well as flavors are dynamic. My husband ordered the shrimp and grits. Yes, shrimp and grits presented elegantly, and to die for. I had their mahi mahi, and friends had scallops. Just the right amount of food, leaving you well satisfied, but not overly stuffed. Fantastic view. Don't let the unusual drive past the RV park deter you. GO

Crab cakes and Curry chicken. The chicken was too spicy for me but husband loved it. Nice service. A little over priced in my mind but a nice evening
