Had an absolutely fabulous brunch there with a friend. The water views are spectacular-dolphins frolicking just outside our corner high top table. The restaurant is extremely small but very classy-be sure you make a reservation. The waitstaff couldn’t have been more welcoming and friendly. The...More

Our friends recommended a favorite of theirs, which is located in the RV Park/Marina, above the laundry mat. Don’t be deceived, it is a great setting with a lovely view of the sunset. The meal was delicious, although the Mahi Mahi was a little dry,...More

This is probably the best food on the island. Small restaurant in a very unlikely place (in an RV park attop a laundrymat). But don't be fooled this place has awesome food and terrific views.

We were staying at the attached RV park, so we thought we'd try it. We ended up going back two more times because the food was so good. Every item on the menu is more delicious than you think it is going to be. Each...More

We've been coming to the Hilton Head for 10 years now. It's been on our list and we were excited to go. The food was great, the staff unwelcoming though... just odd. The views were just okay, I've seen some great sunsets around the island,...More

Perfect seafood, great wines and such a a wonderful intimate location. You've got to know it's hidden away location, just off the wonderful RV resort we're staying at.

We went for lunch: I ordered the pimento cheese and bacon risotto with fried oysters and spinach. So creamy and the oysters plump and juicy. Our server Mary-Ellen, a now local woman, had great stories to tell and was extremely efficient.

Driving into this place you wouldn't think that you would arrive to where you do. The restaurant is not your standard look for fine dining but this place to to die for. Between the view you get (especially around sunset and the quality of the...More

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!
