The steaks are great. I love the blue cheese butter that comes on the filet.They have great appetizers as well as the desserts. I heard that many of the recipies come form the employee's relative sand were handed down as family favorites. Fun placeto dine

My wife , a close friend, and I dined here last night to celebrate our anniversary. It was our first visit since they reopened a few weeks ago after a terrible fire closed them down last summer. This restaurant is the best kept secret in Gulf Shores. It is like your own small private club, and they take reservations. Of... More

Visiting the area and this place was recommended. The food was good but the service was SUPER SLOW! It took an hour for entrees to come out and the restaurant was 1/2 empty. I could only imagine the wait with a full restaurant. My husband's steak was overcooked but after waiting an hour for meals; we dared not send it... More

Recently refurbished, the atmosphere is tranquil. Decor is a neutral palate and very quieting, excellent for a great dining experience. An extensive selection of small plates that with the "Sunset Salad" and a glass of wine leaves room for their homemade desserts.

Had wonderful dinner at Sunset Cork Room shortly after they reopened. Our meals--the lamb lollipops and filet--were great, and good value for the cost.

Just visited for the first time after their reopening. Meal was excellent. Cheese plate, salad, lamb lollipops, tuna appetizer and filet mignonette main course. All nice portion, good sides and good service. As always, Nina, the owner helped us choose an excellent wine.

We dined at the Sunset Cork Room with friends just after it reopened after a kitchen fire. The restaurant is lovely with comforting colors and art. The food was really delicious. I tried the chicken dish and my husband had the filet and both were wonderful. The owner Nina recommended a really nice Merlot for dinner and it was a... More

The decor is quiet and soft, a young lady was softly strumming a guitar when we entered. It was a very nice place for conversation and drinks. When we ordered our meal it arrived hot and the presentation was excellent. All at our table were pleased with their food and the service was excellent. We will return !

My husband took me here for our anniversary dinner and it was amazing. It was a Wednesday night in April so we pretty much had the entire place to ourselves. It was a very romantic setting and not sure if I would bring our children. I had the 6 oz steak with the blue cheese butter and it was amazing!... More

The Sunset Cork Room is an exciting new concept for the Gulf Coast. We offer unique wines from around the world complemented by beautiful appetizers and exquisite desserts. Our resident Chef Ira Gallon will have your mouth watering and our staff will have you relaxed and at ease. "A little off the beaten path", the Cork Room is an excellent way to escape the typical beach fare and step into a more sophisticated, personal atmosphere. We're also the perfect place to talk over plans with associates or meet up with friends. We offer live acoustic music, soft lighting and a stunning decor.
