The deck, music wine and food is awesome, we had a big crowd of people we knew there and enjoyed visiting while wining and dinning together.

This place has a nice, hole-in-the-wall feel to it. It also has good deals on wine one night. The manager is lovely as well! Def a must visit.

We had the rehearsal dinner for our son's wedding at the Sunset Cork Room and it was perfect. I live in Nashville, so I was planning this all long distance. Nina was so helpful and accommodating.

Both the food and atmosphere were great. I had the lamb and my wife had the filet. They were both amazing. I highly recommend it to anyone.

My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and wanted a place that was near the beach but with a more local feel. Our waitress, Joan, was very experienced and readily explained how all of the food is locally sourced and made from scratch by the chef. Our meal, from the cheese tray appetizer, the perfectly prepared entrees of... More

My husband and I attempted to have dinner at Lulu's but there was a 2 hour wait. We drove and found this restaurant and I am glad we did. The food and the atmosphere was lovely. There was even live music. We even split creme brulee which was amazing. This was the best meal we have had while on vacation... More

The Sunset Cork Room is an exciting new concept for the Gulf Coast. We offer unique wines from around the world complemented by beautiful appetizers and exquisite desserts. Our resident Chef Ira Gallon will have your mouth watering and our staff will have you relaxed and at ease. "A little off the beaten path", the Cork Room is an excellent way to escape the typical beach fare and step into a more sophisticated, personal atmosphere. We're also the perfect place to talk over plans with associates or meet up with friends. We offer live acoustic music, soft lighting and a stunning decor.
