I stopped in as a solo on a Sunday afternoon for lunch (wooops – brunch). Really only wanted a sandwich but I had already climbed the endless stairway (no elevator) I decided to stay. There was little on the menu that I had an interest in (my fault) but the place was crowded with everyone enjoying the nice day and... More

However was comp'ed for two glasses of wine. Overall the staff was very friendly and competent. Food was good. The smoked appetizer sampler was reported to... More

We chose Sunset Grill to celebrate our anniversary and we were not disappointed. Our 7 p.m. reservation ensured beautiful sunset and twilight views across the water. The tomato bisque and the roasted beet salad with goat cheese were perfect starters. My husband chose the shrimp and grits, and the dish was colorful and flavor packed. I chose the pork loin...

I have heard great things about Sunset Grille. We definitely wanted to try it. I called at 11:51am and left a message on their machine for a 6:00 reservation for 2. Left my name and number. I had no idea they were going to call me back. Well- I missed a call from them at 4:10 saying they had one... More

We try each time we visit to have dinner here. If you are on the island allow for traffic, but worth it. It's gourmet dining with a changing menu selection. Between the views & food we love going to this place. Last note, don't we discouraged in driving through the RV Resort.

We finally visited this out of the way spot tucked deep into a RV park for brunch on a recent rainy day, and glad we did. Owner Hugh mixed up some BloodyMarys while we waited for our table, nice smoky taste and a perfect texture. We ordered their take on corned beef hash, which was a very nice if slightly... More

This place is "jumpin". Waits are not long but worth it. Their specials are amazing, more than enough to eat. Menu selections are all excellent. The wait staff are as attentive as you can get.

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!
