The best part of the experience was the view. As for the food, it was good, but somewhat overpriced. I got the romaine salad. The romaine lettuce was not grilled. The bacon was more like bacon bits. There was not enough dressing for the salad....More

We have not been open for lunch the day after thanksgiving in 20 years so am not sure who would have taken a reservation for that day since there was no page for it in the book. However I am sorry for the mix up.

Very small restaurant that is a local favorite. Have duck, fish and meats but I always get the strip steak here. This is a celebration restaurant for birthdays, anniversaries or a romantic night out. Can't beat the view!

This restaurant is located near the RV park on the island, so people may not know it’s there. It is small with only 20 tables approximately and a beautiful water view. The food and service are excellent with many specials each evening. Reservations are a...More

This place is located inside a trailer court above a laundry. However, the restaurant has great food and a wonderful view. The decor and service are good and you will enjoy the experience.

We cannot handle that many in the restaurant but could cater something in the owners lounge next door! Let me know if this is something you would be interested in. Thanks, linda

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!
