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!

We went for Sunday brunch, which is order from the menu, not a buffet. The restaurant is beautiful inside, beautiful cut glass in the bar & tables, gorgeous view of the marsh & bridge. There is ample seating, all with a view. Menu selections were varied from omlets, french toast, waffles, and eggs benedict, reasonably priced. Two of us had "Eggs Your Way" which was 2 eggs, we had poached, choice of meat, I had ham, the other was 2 sausage patties, and grits or hash brown casserole. Both order of eggs were overdone, but the ham was a good size slice & the casserole was a large tastey scoop. The Hippie omlet of 3 eggs, with roasted red peppers, diced tomatoes, feta & spinach was the star, a great combination. The lemon chiffon waffle was very light, served with fruit & a meat. Our friend ordered a side of cheese grits which was a scoop rather than traditional grits. If grits were served like that all the time, both my husband & I would order them, good flavor. However, our friend preferred the traditional style, so we were not charged. Remember to order toast if you want it with your eggs as it does not come with your breakfast. Delicious bloody mary's & minosa's, only $3.00. There was only one waitress while we were there, (only 2 other tables of diners) so service was a little lacking, although she was very nice. The place has just changed hands, so if they work out a few things, it will be great.

A group of three couples went there for a Friday night dinner. Who would have ever thought a restaurant of this quality would be in an RV Park! Our attentive waitress made great recommendations for our menu choices and she was "spot on!"

We went for lunch on a rainy weekday in February so the view was subdued. But the food was not, starting with the white Cheddar biscuits. Save the butter, they don't need a thing. My entree was the oyster Po boy, perfectly prepared (they are easy to overcook) and overflowing with oysters. My wife had the Sunset salad with, again, perfectly fried oysters. We shared the banana split cheesecake, really good flavor and not overly heavy. Friendly, knowledgeable service capped the experience that we plan to repeat with every visit to Hilton Head.

We enjoyed sitting next to the window watching the sunset. The Grille is small and the front of the house was managed by a delightful waitress who was energetic, friendly, and made us feel totally welcome. She provided good recommendations and was attentive to each of her customers. The food was tasty, we enjoyed very good crispy oysters and stuffed pepper appetizers. However, in our view the main courses of shrimp and grits and smoked salmon contained to many flavors. The grits had dollops of two different sauces and the salmon had a sauce that detracted from the very nice smoked flavor. We thought the chef would have been better served to have used the KISS principle in that the essence of the meal (i.e. the salmon and shrimp and grits) were delicious by themselves. It is likely that we will return on our next trip.
