We try each time we visit to have dinner here. If you are on the island allow for traffic, but worth it. It's gourmet dining with a changing menu selection. Between the views & food we love going to this place. Last note, don't we discouraged in driving through the RV Resort.

We finally visited this out of the way spot tucked deep into a RV park for brunch on a recent rainy day, and glad we did. Owner Hugh mixed up some BloodyMarys while we waited for our table, nice smoky taste and a perfect texture. We ordered their take on corned beef hash, which was a very nice if slightly... More

This place is "jumpin". Waits are not long but worth it. Their specials are amazing, more than enough to eat. Menu selections are all excellent. The wait staff are as attentive as you can get.

I've lived here for about 8 months now and just tried the Sunset Grille last night! It by far is the best meal I have had since being here! The food was so fresh and the owners really made you feel at home! Not to mention the beautiful view! Anyone who lives or is visiting Hilton Head, I highly recommend... More

small boutique restaurants - seems like a labor of love rather than a commercial enterprise. Didn't have reservations, but they seated us in the corner area overlooking the yacht/harbor/pool - fabulous. Was our anniversary dinner, and their recommended Black Stallion Cab was a steal at $35-ish (what restaurant sells 92 point wines for under $50). Dinner was spectacular, and the... More

Four of us had brunch at the Sunset Grille. The water views were beautiful and the food was excellent. Bloody Marys with a smoky flavor kicked off our brunch followed by small cheddar and raspberry biscuits. The menu had many brunch choices. We selected the Hangover from Hell Sandwich, the Deep Dish quiche, Ham Benedict and the Hash. All were... More

Every time we're headed into or out of Hilton Head we stop at the Sunset Grille for a nice meal and to enjoy a great view of the water. It's hard to imagine a great restaurant at a marina in an RV park (and a nice one at that), so you've got to experience it to believe it. Start with... More

My boss has been telling me I need to try this place for years. We've tried a couple of times only to find it closed. They're a little loose with the hours -- depends on what traffic is like on a given day -- but it's worth a call/reservation to experience this place. It's in an RV Park, above the... More

We went for brunch. Wow! I had the oysters in Pernod and cream with kale and a bread crumb topping. These were the best oysters! My mother had the sheepshead fish and husband had the smoked duck salad. All of the food was fantastic!

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!
