This is a five star restaurant - the food is very good and fresh. They have a limited menu but there was always something on the menu that we wanted. We stayed in Hilton Head Marina and we ate at this restaurant twice in our week stay there. The view is wonderful, the food is great and so is the... More

A local turned us on to this hidden jewel. Love the beautiful location never would of thought of finding a place so great at a recreational place. The food was cooked just as ordered we had steaks and salmon perfect! Small but unique dining room. Definitely make reservations! Great sunset pictures:))

Eight of us tried Sunset Grille for dinner one evening and eight of us left very happy. To sum up our experience - Delicious food, friendly waitress and pretty views. We will definitely go back our next trip.

There's not enough to say about the splendid experience at the Sunset Grille. It's such a surprise to find such a beautiful setting, delightful service and exquisite cuisine in an RV park! One of the very best places to enjoy again and again

I was referred there by my daughter and will keep it on my list of Hilton Head restaurants! Great food, great wine list, great servers...as I like to say, "it's all that"! Yes, it's in a RV park...but don't let that bother you. They earn the 4 1/2 star rating and mine is a 5 star...just know that the restaurant... More

We were here three years ago and went right away on our first night back in Hilton Head. We had a reservation but they wanted us to sit near the door at a high hat table rather than clean a regular table for us- not a big deal but odd. No accommodations could be made for my restricted diet and... More

Let me start by saying this is not a place for kids. It is a very small venue with no high chairs. In addition - this restaurant was grandfathered in and is not required to be compliant with laws that govern handicap accessibility. The only way to get to the restaurant is by climbing a moderate flight of stairs. The... More

It has beautiful views of the low country. It is expensive for what it is. The food is mediocre at the kindest. The egg plant over pasta was very salty. This meal alone could have enough salt for all four meals on the table. It is over the laundromat for a RV park. It is not handicap accessible in anyone's... More

We have lived here ten years and never gone to Sunset. We just had lunch there and we absolutely loved it. I am very difficult to please when it comes to restaurants as I do a lot of cooking myself and am somewhat of a food/ingredient snob. I often leave even the best of restaurants disappointed but I was pleasantly... More

Why not enjoy great views while you are having a tasty meal? This place was fun to eat at. I will definitely go back when I am in the area again.

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!
