If you ever come to Port St Joe this is the restaurant you need to go to. Probably my wife's favorite for sure. They have daily Fresh Fish and specials and always present the food beautifully. I must see if you're here

Had a wonderful sunset dinner. Started with signature drink "sunsetini" which was delicious, mango pure' vanilla vodka, & grenadine, followed by grilled shrimp cocktail & slamming good cocktail sauce, Caprese salad (tomato slices, mozzarella slices, balsamic reduction sauce, & basil) swordfish grilled with lemon & dill sauce, grilled asparagus, & cheese grits. I wish we could have had room for... More

Right on the water and sunset in view, this restaurant has the potential to shine! However, the food and flavors were very basic. My family of four each had something different and felt the same way. The salads with their homemade dressings were a good start and their key lime pie was delicious. However, my shrimp and grits was very... More

This is the fourth time we have been to this restaurant and I can honestly say I will not go back. Made a reservation and they struggled to find it. Service was extremely slow especially trying to order wine. Our orders came out wrong and the food was not as good as it used to be.

Thank you for giving us feedback and I appreciate that you have visited a few times. The night you were in, we had a group of 35 and that probably slowed down everything. It shouldn't but timing is everything. I hope that the manager was given the opportunity to fix your situation. Once again thank you for visiting Sunset More

So we went to this restaurant because of a recommendation of a local. He especially recommended the smoked gouda scallops and shrimp and linguini. That's what I had but we also ordered the special, the grouper. When it came out the baked potato and asparagus were good but the grouper didn't seem to taste like grouper. When it was brought...

I appreciate your opinion however after investigating your situation further I discovered that our manager did come to your tables and did discover that you had been given the Corvina rather than the grouper. This is an uncommon error coming out of our kitchen but can happen in rare occasions. And though you refused to let him take the grouper... More

The seafood here was wonderful. The salads were fresh and crunchy. The place was busy but still had wonderful service. The wine selection was great.

Thank you so much for visiting the restaurant and writing a review. I think you must have been there on the rainy, busy night of Spring Break Week. It was a crazy night and I am happy that you enjoyed your experience. We look forward to seeing you again. More

This restaurant is a WONDERFUL place to go to celebrate special occasions (wedding anniversaries, birthdays, etc.). I you ask to be seated in the lower portion of the restaurant near the windows, you will get a BEAUTIFUL view of the sunset and the bay! We were also treated to some local wildlife, such as herons, cranes, jumping fish, etc. The... More

Stopped by for lunch while traveling through. Excellent view. Wide variety on menu and reasonably priced. Could not have ever asked for a better waitress than Laura. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

First, there was that good, old fashioned , warm, southern hospitality. Made you feel welcome right away. Food was excellent. I was looking for good seafood, this was better than good. So much to choose from. If we were here longer, I would definitely go back and try more seafood selections. Try this, you will not be disappointed!

Stopped here for early supper with my husband and was not disappointed. Great local beer selection, delicious food, great friendly service and a table with beautiful views of the bay. Most delicious batter fried fresh oysters in tupelo honey marinade that I have ever eaten!
