Me and my friends went for a drink and a snack and it turned into an great night out. The atmosphere, view and staff were superb. My friends were from the west coast and haven't stopped talking about it since.

We stayed at Sunset Beach hotel. To keep things simple, we ate at Sunset Beach restaurant 2 nights. We prefer eating late and the first night, the staff rushed us out by 9:57 pm. The entire restaurant was filled with women celebrating birthdays, drinking rose. Nothing wrong with women drinking rose, but we recalled a far more eclectic group the... More

Don't let the casual, beach location fool you, the Sunset Beach packs a fantastic French bistro kitchen with very casual but efficient service, delicious food and a perfect caipivodka.

Great scene for drinks and people-watching - go in the late afternoon and watch the sunset over the beach!

We came here for brunch before a friend's wedding and it was a bit of a trip. My major caveat is I'm just not fabulous enough to fit in here! Vibe: It's a truly beautiful setting across from the beach. Everything is awash in yellow which gives it such a laid back yet elegant vibe. There's a little outside area... More

This place definitely scores high for atmosphere. It's hard to believe that we didn't have to get on an airplane to get this super cool vacation feel... However, it comes at a very steep price. I liked everything that we ordered but we basically blew $200 on seltzer a glass of rosé, 3 iced cappuccinos, 3 kids mini pastas with... More

hip, and hop to a new friend, where the young and trendy meet and great. the "scene" on Shelter Island, always crowded with the young and beautiful, make a reservation if you can. it is as close as you can get to Niki beach in the US.

We had lunch here on one of our beach days while vacationing on Shelter Island. It was convenient and obviously Very hip. We had been told we "must" go to Sunset Beach for a cocktail and the view but were warned that the service would not be great and the attitude would be high. The food is OK and very... More

The rooms are decent but way overpriced...tiny bathroom, broken toilet seat, huge bugs all over balcony...the service is also very minimal and not very helpful. Went back and forth from check in to beach several times before getting beach towels and chairs. Definitely not worth the price tag

Been going to Shelter Island for 2 years now and this was the one time we decided to stay and enjoy the Sunday afternoon/evening party. The staff and the DJ were amazing!! Make sure to stop by if you are out on the island and check it out.
