My wife and I ate here a while back and enjoyed the view and atmosphere. We ordered the ribs and they were average. They have a nice, social bar area downstairs with bands playing a more quiet upstairs with traditional restaurant seating, overlooking the niantic river. Not a terrible choice.

My friend and I have been going to Sunset Ribs for years. We stopped there for lunch today and were surprised how run down and dirty it is. All the floors in the place were sticky and the carpeting to the upstairs filthy. We sat upstairs and outside. The window ledges had a thick layer of dust/sawdust on them. My... More

I lived down the road from Sunset Ribs for 4 years. The atmosphere is always fun & entertaining. The food is ok; typical bar stuff. My last visit it seemed the server couldn't get me & my friends out of there quick enough.

Came later at night, drinks were decently priced. They had a band earlier in the night then transition to a DJ. Great selection of craft and domestics. Dj at first was a little noisy because the place wasn't full, but later on it was great, played great music. The bar is great because they have an indoor and outdoor bar... More

Hidden little bar. 2 levels of out door seating. Packed weekends. DJs and bands. Monthly themed parties. Craft and local season beers. Must visit local bar spot.

My wife and I had lunch there last Saturday and were very disappointed. As we arrived, no one greets you and you basically wander around wondering if you should just seat yourself or not. We found our own table outside since the view was fairly nice. Since we hadn't walked up to the bar, we were surprised to be asked... More
