Kimberly was our server, and she was outstanding! We made reservations for 11 and were seated with out any wait, even on a Friday. The food was definitely tasty and every detail was spectacular. We were loud, but respectful. We definitely enjoyed our time here. Again, I want to give a big acknowledgement to our waitress!!!! She was polite, quick, on point, suggestive, helpful, able to not only take a joke but to add to the laughter with us, and what superb customer service and relations. We all will be coming back and requesting her. We had a great time here! Try it out, plenty of food options and a great menu. Very tasty! Well done guys.

We attended for Happy Hour/Taco Tuesday and had a lovely time. Margaritas were delicious, as were the tacos. Our service was outstanding, and we will definitely return! Thank you.

We had a large group. We were seated quickly and service and food were both great. My only negative comment would be that it was very loud in the room we were in, so it was hard for us to even hear each other talk, which was slightly disappointing.

We will not go back. It was a bad experience. They seated us in the noisy bar area. I ordered wine. A long time later they brought two melted margaritas and said there was none of the white wine I ordered. Bad start. We order chips and quac. We got a small tub of corn chips and a purée of green stuff with no flavor. There was a red salsa which was way too wet. Moving on we got tacos. No flavor. One of our party got a burger with fries. Best food on the table.
There was music. Bad.
We will not go back.

Multiple visits including 6/17/19 have been great. Food and service have been to my expectation. We had 7 people at this visit and all seemed pleased with atmosphere, food and service.

When family member lifted top of quesadilla I noticed 4 "tiny" dices of tomato, a leaf of cilantro,& whisper of cheese! You cannot justify the prices charged for amount of food served.i made a point of looking long at everyone's portions & volume,same skimping. Not ambiance,service make for a meal alone! Way too chintzy.your customers eventually will not be back.sorry.not in keeping with most ordinary Mexican meals nothing gourmet,not substantial for any of us and $4 tortilla cup with watery no taste salsa.so many problems with food,just didn't leave anyone satisfied.

I'm so sorry that you did not enjoy your experience. I noticed you were in on a Friday, perhaps you can give us another try on the weekend again and try one of the Chef's Specials. I'd love to treat you to one of them. Please ask for me when you return. My name is Ashley.

Waited for service so long ask bartender to have someone come over. Was out of what one of the party wanted. My grilled chicken salad tasted like chicken sat in fridge a couple days (ICE COLD) 😣

Kitchen and bar staff couldn’t handle the food orders. Most of people in our group didn’t have the exact things that we ordered. Burnt chicken and veggies. Very disappointed.

Went to Sunset Grille for a graduation celebration for my boyfriends college graduation. That was the best part saying that out loud. We get there 5 minutes late to our reservation, late start. We order appetizers and drinks. Quickly we get our app and drinks. Then we get our salads at a reasonable time. But then it all falls apart; entrees comes out, 3/5 come out, 1 is over cooked and 1 is cold, those go back so we wait for that, the chicken pasta finally comes out to be cold, again. We send that back finally get it and half of the people were done eating. The steak special was cooked over “medium-rare” so not sent out and then it finally comes out and was practically still alive. We finally get all food to table and it’s good tasting but small portions. The waiter says I’m sorry for mistakes x2 with food you get a free desert to make up for it. The waiter brings the desert menu, leaves for 15 mins comes back finally with check and ask what we want for desert order. We order churros and give debit card. 20 mins later we get “churros” 4 little flimsy “churros.” Went here for a 4.2 Open Table review and will never be returning. Also, waiter never apologized for the subpar food and 1 hour 50 minute process for 2 out of 5 star service.

We were seated by the western window just before sunset Throughout our meal we were able to watch the yellows,oranges, purples and reds of the setting sun. Hence the name - Sunset Grille. Service was very good. Food was okay - no big deal. We had ribs and fajitas. Not exceptional but acceptable. They serve lots of bar food - ribs, burgers, tacos, etc. Fries were very good. Slaw was boring. Guacamole made with lots of mayo. Flat and oily. We haven’t been there in several years. Now we remember why. Good place for families and groups.

The Sunset Grille is a very nice "fall back on " restaurant. It has something for just about everyone. The food and alcohol are reasonably priced. The food is average to above average but I would not call it gourmet. It is a nice place to go just to go out. I would not consider it a romantic restaurant but great for meeting friends. There is ample parking and a friendly staff.
