My dad is somewhat of a softshell crab connoisseur and every year we come here for the best soft shell crabs on the island. It also could be the best sunset view restaurant on the island. It's a small place which allows the staff to focus on your table. Always a treat to here and I always look forward soft... More

Susie did a great job keeping things moving right along for a bunch of fussy people celebrating mom's birthday! The apps were delicious and the main course was even better and finished off with birthday dessert complete with candle. Sadly it was cloudy and rainy so the beautiful sunset view was not going to happen - we will be back... More

Our waitress, Kathy, was the best...friendly & efficient!! One of, or maybe, the best restaurants on Hilton Head for a dinner time sunset (along with their Shrimp & Grits and/or anything else on the menu)! Located within an upscale RV park, it makes one yearn to own one of those Prevost highway yachts (or a nice Winnebago)...stay here and rest... More

My husband and I stopped here for dinner as the sun was setting without a reservation. We were seated immediately and received top notch and friendly service. Our waitress was very attentive and our food was outstandingly prepared. I had the beet salad which was very good. I prefer goat cheese with my beets and this came with ricotta, but... More

First time there and will definitely again. a small restaurant with Fabulous scenery of Skull creek, and food and service marvelous! Had their famous bloody Mary - and it was excellent - a bit of a smokey flavour. You have to try. Had the lump meat crab cakes and my wife had the wreck fish. Superbly prepared. Reservations necessary.

After an awful and long winter in SC, we've returned to our beach escapes. I've been craving the Cajun Oysters app for months. Never disappoints. The Fish special is always a great choice. Love the place. Reservations if you don't want to get disappointed.

This restaurant is consistently excellent. It is located on the inland waterway with a beautiful view. My husband had the duck entree and the caprese salad with a glass of pinot noir. I had the scallop entree with vodka tonics. The bread and garlic butter was very good. The service was excellent. Another enjoyable meal at this restaurant. Do call... More

We were staying at the on site RV park and popped into Sunset Grille to check it out while walking around the property. It was mid-afternoon and they had closed after lunch and had not yet reopened. Maryellen was sitting doing paperwork at the bar and immediately invited us to enter. We asked if we could purchase a drink and... More

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!
