sunset drinks

Can someone recommend a nice place to have a drink and watch the sunset? (I am thinking pretty low key -- not college age happy hour scene). Thanks.

Sliders is on the beach and has a deck. They have good food also. Check out the reviews on TA.

If you want a sunset view you'll have to be on the river (west side of the Island) not the ocean (that's great for sunrise, not sunset). Probably the best place is the back porch of Brett's at the downtown marina. View looks out over the marina, the Intracoastal Waterway and the marshes beyond. Next best bet would probably be Barbara Jean's (just after coming onto the Island). Their back porch is more for dining but I'm sure you could have a drink there as well. Both casual and relaxed atmosphere.

The only other place I can think of besides the ones already mentioned would be the Crab Trap - they are 2 stories and from the second floor you can get a table by a window facing the west/marina. But you'd be indoors. If you want outdoors Brett's is your best bet. The porch/outdoor tables at 29 South Eats might get a bit of a view, but it is a block from the river so it would not be without obstructions. Though the food there is excellent!

And no worries at either location about loud rowdy college kids drinking.

Agree that Brett's overlooking the marina with an unobstructed view to the west is the best spot for sunset cocktails. You can sit outside on the "back" porch in one of the rocking chairs or get a table.
