Friday lunch at the Sunset Grille is the perfect start to the weekend. Hubby is a huge fan of their stuffed burgers-always cooked perfectly to temperature. I enjoyed the Black and Bleu salad-the blackened beef tips were properly spiced and fork-tender, and the opposing sweet...More

Delightful evening! The location is a bit different being in an upscale RV park but being right on the water and on the second story makes for great sunsets (hence the name I’m sure) and great long range views afterwards. The menu is brief but...More

Good food, although a bit pricey. Try out Sunday brunch which is quite good. The restaurant is next door to an RV park, which is not attractive, but the views from the restaurant windows look over Skull Creek are lovely, particularly at sunset. Hence, The...More

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.

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!
