As always! We always split whatever the special is and enjoy it very much. Tonight was scallops. Our only criticism is that our guest noted no vegetarian entre and was put off but enjoyed her salad and side of potatoes.

Sunset Cork Room always has great food and a wonderful experience, but some new menu items are really outstanding. Plus Lisa Christian is there most evenings with smoothing favorites for your dining and dancing pleasure!

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.

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.
