Came here on recommendation for a anniversary dinner. Food was excellent, husband got the lamb lollipops and they were best we have ever had. The red wine reduction it came in was so good. Grouper with corn relish and cream sauce was very good as...well. Crab bisque and crab cake started meal off great. Live soft music in background was perfect. Dinner for 2 with 3 glasses of wine and a port, appetizer, 2 entrees was $100. Great value. Highly recommend.More

The service and food were fantastic! My husband and I shared the crab cakes, they came with two different and delicious sauces. We each had the filet and honestly, they were steak house worthy! Beautifully seasoned and perfectly cooked. The restaurant is only 10 minutes...from the beach and it's a hidden gem. We enjoyed the live, relaxing entertainment. Nina, the owner, and all the staff were so nice!More

Host was very rude. Unfortunately didn’t get to try the food because we weren’t allowed to wait for a table.

Unfortunately, due to safety regulations regarding proximity and maximum capacity, we are occasionally unable to allow guests to wait in common areas. However, we sincerely apologize if any interaction came across as anything but respectful.

Hands down the best meal we had in Gulf Shores! The live background music was a nice touch as well. We had the crab bisque, fried goat cheese, pork chop, grouper, and strawberry shortcake for dessert. Every dish was delicious! Great ambiance and staff. We...will definitely be back on our next trip!More

This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and we made reservations at Sunset Cork Room. We were not disappointed! Our server, Abi was very pleasant and the food was great! We were happy to get away from the bar food options and long waits...closer to the beach and enjoyed grouper with mango corn salsa and pasta with shrimp. There was live music, pleasant atmosphere, and the hostess was very kind and obviously proud of the restaurantMore

We love Sunset Cork Room and always visit when we are vacationing in Gulf Shores. We made reservations and was happy to see the restaurant full this year! We had the pleasure of Lea working our table. She was so lively and fun! There was...a local musician performing and she was incredibly talented! Perfect ambiance and staff! As always, food and drinks were phenomenal! We cannot visit without having the lamb lollipops! We were without our children this year so we did not have to share with them. 😊 I ordered the caprese salad with grilled chicken. Absolutely delicious! We are self proclaimed tomato snobs because we grow our own. The salad was perfect and tomatoes did not disappoint. My husband had the filet and it was equally as delicious. Bartender makes a mean lemon drop and chocolate martini. I purposely had a salad so I could enjoy a piece of lava cake. Sunset Cork Room is a lovely gem and we will plan to return when we are in the area.More

Delicious ahi-tuna and filet, but most of all the flourless chocolate cake will leave you licking the plate. The server was a genuinely kind person and made the experience even better.

Casual, we took our 12 year old son and 5 year old grandson. There were people wearing polos and people wearing tshirts (I was in the tshirt and flip flop crowd) and all were comfortable.
