This visit was the second time we visited this restaurant. While the food is generally good, they have some problems with preparation preferences and they fall down in service. My wife asked for her meat be cooked to a certain doneness. The meat near the edges of her meat were almost cooked to her liking. However, the center was not even close and was too raw. My piece of meat was a bit more done than hers (we ordered the same exact meal with same doneness) and the center of mine was closer to what we wanted. It seems the kitchen was not consistent in cooking meat of this cut. This restaurant seems to put tables for two right next to the stage and you have no choice in the matter. My wife and I like to eat and talk. Its difficult to do that when music is playing and singing is happening right next to you. In addition, the waitress never delivered bread and butter, while all other tables in the place had theirs. I think we will skip this restaurant the next time we visit this area.

I had the parmesan crusted shrimp with the wedge salad and my husband had the lamb lollipops with a salad. Both were outstanding; would highly recommend.

Delicious food! Went on a Tuesday which happened to be $3 house wine night- we were very pleased. Food was wonderful. The cajun crab bisque and grouper with risotto were standouts. Dessert was yummy, enjoyed the live guitar music that was lovely and not too loud 😀

In our two months, first time SnowBird experience in Gulf Shores this was the best meals out that we had. Scallops were perfectly cooked with wonderful seasoning on the rice. Nice fresh salads and lovely rolls. Petite Grouper was perfectly cooked and the risotto was just the right foil. Having Lisa Christian’s voice and guitar enhanced the evening beautifully.

We enjoyed a lovely evening. It was a 70th Birthday Celebration and the service was terrific, only surpassed by the delicious food. Everyone at the table ordered something different and we all were completely satisfied with the portions, presentation and efficiency. Great house wines as well! Thank you!

The atmosphere was very cordial but not exactly private. Seating is open and guests sit adjacent to one another. Our seats were up against a very high wall which felt awkward. The menu offers a good selection and range of foods. The smaller dinner portions are perfect for women and older patrons. The grouper and scallops were very good. The salads, wine, and desserts were very good as well. The soft music was a nice addition to the experience.

The dining room is lovely. The cheese plate was wonderful. My husband had the filet cooked perfectly and I had the scallops with rice and asparagus which was amazing. We will certainly dine here again when we are back in Gulf Shores.

Been doing winter in Gulf Shores for a number of years, but just recently learned of this restaurant. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, nice menu. One note of interest, I asked about the 6 oz Filet and was told it was very good, hand cut. It was good. I told our server that our son would be visiting in a few weeks and he is a big steak eater. Since they hand cut, would they do an 8 oz for him. She said she would check with the chef, then told us, no, they only cut 6 oz. So it's handcut somewhere, but probably not at the restaurant. Anyway, very good meal and evening.

This was our second time at the Sunset Cork Room. Love the supper club atmosphere. Great guitar/singer. Perfect volume for in there. Was a bit disappointed in the short rib dinner on 1/14/20. Was like roast beef, very good but very small and was not given any vegetables with it. Loved my wedge salad but they forgot my my blue cheese crumbles and spicy pecans. Otherwise it was good. Loved the Tuesday wine special. Our other quests had great meals. I will be back and more verbal at the time when something’s are a bit off.
