We always enjoy eating at the Sunset Catch on their beautiful patio. My wife had the swordfish and I had a shrimp dish, we split the ceviche to start. Excellent preparation, beautiful views and wait and host staff are always friendly and knowledgeable

Food was excellent and setting was beautiful. We had a table outside and were able to watch the Intra Coastal boat traffic while enjoying Calamari to share as well as three great seafood entrees (our other diner had chicken parmigiana which was very good as well). We all agreed that we would be back.

Took our friends there for a birthday celebration and asked for seating outdoors for the view of the marina and yachts just below. It was one of Florida's better weather evenings as the breeze was very mild and the sun was strong, but we were in the shade. We started with cocktails and wine, salads and house made bread. The salads were cold and crisp and properly dressed - not too much or too little. Entrees consisted of grilled Pompano with broccoli rabe, and Sunset Catch Pescatore (seafood stew). They were served hot and properly cooked, not overdone. The service was attentive but not intrusive or overdone. This was our third experience at this eatery, and we would highly recommend this for it food, service, ambiance and value. We will continue to dine there in the future.

Delicious Italian Seafood from an authentic Sicilan chef and great live music
Branzino was one of the best I've had. The lamb chops (6 of them ) are perfect and a great price. The out side deck is beautiful. It's always lively and fun on the weekend. Its a must when in South Florida

Enjoyed happy hour in the bar first before a wonderful dinner on the outside terrace.
The bartender in the bar might have been having a bad day. My friends commented that he seemed grumpy. Same observation I had made.
Overall a good experience.

We had a lovely table overlooking the harbour, unfortunately due to rain, they had to draw the window covers. It would have been nice if they opened them again after the rain passed. The food was good, the service was good but it was very, very slow. We were ok with the as we were not in any hurry. But we did have to and plug the meter because from the time we ordered dessert and coffee t the time I was delivered was about 45 minutes. My husband had the fish special for his main course and it was very tasty. I had the chicken Portobello which was also tasty but the chicken was a little overcooked and dry. There was live entertainment in the main bar and restaurant that starts t 6:30 pm. The music is heard in the patio area though a speaker which is very loud. It was impossible to have a conversation when the music and singer were on. We really enjoyed the music, but just know that it is LOUD!

The three of us had a delicious meal and wonderful service dining on a recent Friday evening. The sauces on the pappardelle with pistachio pesto and the Big Apple rigatoni were outstanding . We wouldn't hesitate to return. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

We had a nice dining experience. We sat outside on a high patio overlooking the inter coastal. Portions were large and the main course was hot as it should be. We had a nice dessert as well. Service was very nice. All in all a lovely evening and we were eating outside, always a plus in Florida.

Waiter seemed hassled to have to serve us. This after we were seated and had to find the owner to ask for a server. Decent place but classic tourist restaurant where mgt doesn’t care this time of year if you come back. We live in the area btw. Might try again in May.

MP Lobster dinner and it’s $35 per pound I think someone should make you aware before it’s to late. $70 for a 2 pound lobster with potato.

The menu has had some changes. I will miss some items like the grilled artichoke appetizer. A new item is pappardelle in a pistachio pesto sauce with 4 jumbo shrimp. It was delicious and I will definitely be ordering it again! There was a very lively band called Reaxtion and they kept the dance floor packed. Each table had a light up mini Christmas tree that changed colors. The entire restaurant was beautifully decorated including the staircase!

The homey Thanksgiving dinner was nice 👍! Loved the pumpkin soup👏 The different meats were tasty and the side dishes very good, especially the Brussels sprouts! The worst of this restaurant was the chairs!! They need to go! You cannot appreciate any kind of meal if you are not in a good chair.
