    Service and food was quick and good, cove fries lacked crab dip, however jerk chicken quesadilla was best food I've had in a while. Shrimp tacos were also really good, and snickers hot chocolate was a neat mixed drink. Wish they put us by the water front window but still a good view 9/10

    First time here. Prices were reasonable and service was good. It was a little chilly (we had to eat with our coats on) because we were seated near the doors that go up and it was really cold outside. Wasn't crowded at all which was a little surprising. We will be back.

    When we arrived I mentioned my reservation to the upstairs hostess and she looked at me like I had two heads. Made a strange face... My friends arrived shortly after me went to the downstairs hostess who pulled up the reservation on her computer...said great...and sat my friends. Meanwhile I was upstairs at a table waiting for my friends to arrive. Thirty minutes later they saw me, I got my ice tea and met them on the beach. After that everything went fine.

    Been waiting to attend this place because its been booked. It was good, but we chose the wrong day to go. They were out of a lot items due to the truck not coming in yet so everything I tried to order, I couldn't. Plus the frozen drink machine was down. However, the food and atmosphere was great!

    Was travelling in the Baltimore area and SC was recommended by a co-worker. Food was OK (steak was fair, seafood was good). I rated the service as fair (the receptionist was inhospitable while the server was fine). Heck, they didn't even give me credit for the open table points and we spent close to $200 on the dinner. It is really a place for outdoor dining in the Summer since it is near the water.

    great place, good food, attentive staff...good specials on game days....feels like a mini vacation with the beach and water..we had a child with food allergies and the staff worked with us to fix him something yummy to eat.. Palm trees sway and there are lovely gardens everywhere...beautiful !! We all had a great time...very clean...and parking attendants to help you. Something for everyone and to fit every budget....

    We celebrated my birthday at Sunset last Saturday, and we definitely enjoyed ourselves. We started with dinner, and although not a huge menu, the food we ordered was good. After dinner we made our way to the beach bar. It was nice having enough room to dance and have our whole group, about 12 of us, in one area without bumping into anyone else. The drinks were great. My drink of choice for the night was the Sunset Crush! DJ kept us going with a nice mix of music. We will definitely be back!

    For a place with a sweet view, decent restaurant setup, they really try to ruin the experience with atrocious, disengaged service. We went here the other night for my wife's birthday. First we tried to sit at a table on the beach but no server came over for 15 minutes. So then we went inside. Waited again. Then we get this waitress with zero personality and couldn't care less about our experience. Very frustrating. Ever moreso since the previous time here was just as annoying. If the food wasn't halfway decent, the sun would really set on this "business".

    We hit Sunset Cove on discount burger night in the thick of the summer. Our server was quick and attentive. The kids swam in the river while we sat at a picnic table next to the water to watch them and share a meal and drinks with our friends. Food was good. Burgers were good. But, two issues: 1) Would not accomodate a request for a kids-size pasta dish (not on kids menu, but pasta on menu). 2) Our meal took forever to arrive. And, my salad was forgotten. Arrived 15 minutes after my companions were done eating. Should have been a freebie, but was not.

    This place has it all....Fantastic food, great service, beautiful relaxing beach/shore dining, free parking, music, drinks, and boat docks! We were a table of 6 and each of us had the most relaxing, superb dinner found anywhere in the Baltimore area! Wear comfortable clothes as you sit on a sandy beach area complete with tropical flowers and plants. A tiki bar serves up wonderful drinks and the youthful wait staff is on top of all your culinary requests. All the while you gaze at the water and boat docks, you actually watch the sun setting, hence the name...Sunset Cove! Try the fish tacos! We loved every morsel of the generous helping of rock fish. Their burgers are fantastic and the pit beef is perfect (shared our entrees)!

    Enjoyed sitting on the porch with a great breeze on a hot afternoon and enjoying marina view. Great service as waitress accommodated our every request. Serval ordered appetizers which were large enough for lunch; recommend the green tomatoes with crab. Also recommend the Orange Crush, or any of the crush flavors, on a hot afternoon.

    Everything was great but I called ahead to let them know it was my friends 40th birthday and they said the staff would come out and sign and the cake would have candles. Small detail to many but none-the-less an important detail for this special occasion.
