The first thing I noticed on my visit to this restaurant was the live entertainment. I personally am not one to enjoy live entertainment but I know some people do. But as soon as we walked in the band was playing so loudly that would could barely hear the hostess. When she asked where we would like to be seated she could tell that I was not comfortable with the thought of sitting in the "porch" area where the band was playing. Fortunately they also have a closed in area that is separate from the entertainment and the hostess offered this area as an alternative. We gladly took this suggestion. The food was very good. My wife and I both had fresh seafood and enjoyed what we were served. I will say the amount of food served was somewhat overpriced. We expected a bit more than what we received for the price that we paid. Don't get me wrong, the food was great, just not the value of what we paid for it. Stacy our server, was very attentive and we were pleased with the service. With the use of the separate area away from the entertainment our visit was pleasant and the food was very good. But for a better value, visit the restaurant next door to this one, Florida Seafood. The food, atmosphere and value are superior to the Sunset Café.

We decided to go here simply because it has pretty good reviews, it's locally owned, and we were craving some sort of surf n turf. The decor is very cool. They have fish tanks that serve as separations, which is very pleasant. The server was very nice. All in all, the ambiance was good. I ordered the snow crab with a baked potato, and my husband ordered prime rib with crab and fries. We shared a half caraffe of wine. The crab was good! They even have continually heated drawn butter so that it doesn't get cold on you while you're trying to crack open the crab legs. The serving size was big. The baked potato had a funny taste, though. The prime rib was not too good. It was greasy and had more fat than meat. The wine was just barely drinkable. Maybe it was too warm. All the great reviews for this place did not involve steak or potatoes, so we should have stuck to an all seafood menu. We'll know for next time. The prices resemble Red Lobster, but the crab was way better than at Red Lobster. I think that if you go here, just stick to seafood.
I came to this restaurant on my honeymoon. It was the best restaurant I could've asked for. The wait was a little long, but it was over the weekend and in between Christmas and New Year's. However, you could go to the bar or walk out along the pier out back and feed the fish if you'd like. I absolutely loved walking along the water and feeding the fish, while enjoying a drink from the bar. We got the recommendation while we were playing miniature golf by the owner of the golf stand. He had told us the food is excellent, even though not much. Wow, was I surprised when I had so much food. I couldn't eat everything...and I can eat! I had the crabcakes, which were AWESOME. I am very picky about crabcakes...these had to be one of the best I have ever had, if not the best. The wait staff was very accomodating and gracious through the entire meal. I really enjoyed myself. I'd like to say thank you to the restaurant for not letting me down on my honeymoon...you guys are the best! I will be returning on my one year anniversary this December!
