Located in Sutton Station, surrounded by distinctive shops, this casual spot offers American cuisine that's more than conventional pub fare. – In Short
Kick back and order up a drink while watching a game on one of nine TVs. Daily beer and martini specials, prime rib Fridays and a seemingly endless menu are all standard here. The main dining area offers plenty of tables, while a room off to the side can be closed off for private parties. On the menu, crowd favorites include the chili, jambalaya and Jack Daniels filet mignon.
New favorite place – Not sure what others are complaining about. We frequent this place, and always have a wonderful time and good service. Dave, one of the owners, is a fixture here, and isn't afraid to get his hands dirty and work. AJ is an awesome bartender. Food is just average, but priced well, and plenty of selection. Late night menu is a bonus. Sundays are great here for watching games, etc. Very fun!
Horrible place – I used to frequent this grill often, but it seems the food and atmosphere has gone down hill. the management isn't very friendly and the food isn't very good. I would not recommend the restaurant to anyone. Take your money elsewhere.
Excellent! – The food is great, the staff and management very friendly and helpful! I love going to a restaurant that makes me feel welcome and serves up some great food!!
Great Spot – Everything is good about this place; reasonable prices on really good food.
Management Concerns – I visited Sunset Grille during an afternoon off-peak time and experienced the owners being standoff-ish and rude. While the staff seemed eager to help, the impression the owners conveyed to me (and their own staff who witnessed their behavior to me) was one of carelessness and inactivity (i.e., they just sat around in their back room w/feet propped up using their computer while I was standing around waiting to be seated). Let's hope Sunset Grille's staff is more professional than their management and doesn't follow their, ahem, "leadership." Don't waste your time eating here when there are other venues much more eager to please their customers.
I love this place. – It doesn't hurt that I live close by, but man I love Sunset Grille. The food is always, always delicious (try the coconut chicken sandwich or the fantastic ribs), and the service is very good. I am so grateful that the owners chose our part of southeast Durham to open shop. Perfect for a quick bite, after work beer, or night out with friends.
The paper was right on – I stop in after I saw the review in the durham herald on Friday the 27th. I was pleasantly suprised to see that it wasn't just someone writing something to fill space. The food was excellent and the service was right on time. I went with the paper recommendation of the Jambalaya and my friend had the Ribeye steak. It was awesome the jamabalaya was spiceyand filling, and my friend said his steak was as good as he could get at Angus Barnfor half the price. We live only a couple miles from Sunset Grille and will definitely be heading back for more great food.
It sure beats messing with the mall traffic.
newcustomer – Very loud, but good place for young singles to hang. Bar food definitely. Good drink specials. Service okay.

Marty and his chefs are cooking up some rocking food man!The night life can't be beat ,with a great atmosphere and quality bar staff.I highly recommend this hot spot.
