Thought I was going to a nice restaurant to enojy a great meal and great wine. Dining room was set up for live music that prevented any opportunity to savor a great meal. Would love to go back under and try it out under different circumstances--both wine list and menu looked impressive.
Brought some first time snowbirds to show them a local favorite. Did not disappoint! Love the smaller portions that are available as well as great appetizers when we do not really want a big meal.
Lamp & Grouper were great. Live music was wonderful after everything going on this year. Service was spot on. Luckily we went on a Tuesday, surprised & grateful for the $3.00 house wine special!
Had a great time. Food was great and the music was the icing on the cake. Will be back when we visit again.
The restaurant appeared to be very Covid Health Dept compliant. Our waiter was excellent. The musician was very good and fun. The food was outstanding. Two of us had the petite grouper which was perfect in proportion and taste. It was plenty of food. One person had the filet which was huge. She said it tasted very good. My husband had the shrimp scampi spaghetti and the crab cake. He, too, said it was really good. I highly recommend highly Sunset Corkroom.
Nice lo am place. Not really a wine bar but good food and a good Manhattan.
Food was great. Service was excellent. But the atmosphere was what made the night. There was a sweet man from Portugal that played the most romantic, relaxing music. I could have enjoyed the wine and music for hours.
Everything was fantastic! The Sunset Cork Room is our new favorite restaurant in Gulf Shores.
Perfect, quaint place for Adults to enjoy a special dinner and a tasty cocktail or glass of wine. The menu is pricey, but worth every penny. The chef puts out some amazing food. This was our 6th visit (we are out of towners) and Sunset Corkroom is always a must.
Very nice place with excellent menu choices.
Great wine list and knowledgable owner.
We try to wine and dine at this establishment any time we are down in Gulf Shores, AL. Ambience is nice. Tuesday nights $3 a glass house wines. Parking can be a bit challenging. Food selections are nice and very delicious.
Very nice dinner. Great food, service and atmosphere. Enjoyed the singer. Very pleasant voice.
Our martini's were great. The cheese plat appetizer was excellent and the wine we selected complimented both the cheese and our entrees which my rack of lamb was exquisite. Will be back.
very quaint place and nice wine selection. However I had the linguini and thought it came from a can of Chef Boy Ar Dee. The salad was great and my wife's entree - Salmon - was great
I had the rack of lamb. It was cooked to perfection. The complimented the meat well. It was probably some of the best lamb I've ever eaten.
Thank you so much for your review! We will be sure to pass your compliments on to our chef. We look forward to seeing you back again soon.
The food was incredible.
Thank you so much for your review!
We tried the filet tips and spinach dip as appetizers and each had the petite grouper entree. The food was excellent. Pete was a fantastic server!
Thank you so much for the review! We will be sure to pass your compliments on to Pete and our Chefs!
Our favorite restaurant in Gulf Shores. Love the food, atmosphere and the service! They serve a limited menu but there’s always a dish that satisfies everyone. All four of us enjoyed our meal! It’s Great!
Thank you so much for the review! We are delighted to be your favorite restaurant in Gulf Shores, and we look forward to seeing you back again soon!
Wow this was a little gem of a dining experience. Friday nights live music created the perfect romantic setting. The service was genuine and gave great recommendations. From appetizers to dessert the menu was so delicious & the drinks unique.
I definitely want to return.
A favorite of ours at the beach!
We ate a table for two under Covid-19 conditions and servers were appropriately covered. One f the few restaurants where I have seen splits of prosecco and cava offered.
I unfortunately spilled a 16-oz. iced tea that soaked the table cloth, bread plate and the place setting - yes, my bad, but we had to clean up the mess ourselves. Our server, Abby did offer to change out the table cloth but we were more interested in getting a replacement bread basket, bread plates, and place setting. Abby seemed to be a little forgetful and forgot to bring back a replacement place setting, and did not remember to bring back replacement bread (which she said she would).
Meals were fine, as we ordered two Caesar salads, scallops and grilled grouper. Grouper came with a beurre blanc sauce that was good and the crab meat on top was plump and flavorful. Scallops could have been more plentiful - only 4 come with meal.
Temperature was fine and meals were flavorful. We'd go back, but not an exceptional meal as other diners have found.
My wife and I both love this local restaurant. There is live music on some days, which is always nice and never to loud or invasive. The food is well prepared, just like we order and plated beautifully! Our server was new to us and was excellent (Pete). He was there when we needed him and didn't bug us like at some other places. We highly recommend Sunset Corkroom and they want reservations. They actually seat you at your reserved time!
The food was very original and good. The service was just okay. Our Waitress was also th bartender which kept her distracted during much of our visit.
love this restaurant, best lamb and steak in gulf shores. special ambiance - live chill acoustic entertainment- lots of options for seafood lovers. craft cocktails, wine list. it’s a must try.
This place was awesome. It is not for families of younger children but the food was great service great
Anniversary dinner and reviews didn’t lie. Excellent little place off beaten path that is a relaxed fine dining experience without the high cost. Will go back again soon.
Nice ambiance with music. Food was good and service was awesome. Will be back.
Ambiance, music, service and taste of food was excellent.
The cons were: lack of flexibility in allowing sides to be switched or food prepared differently than on the menu. Also I ordered the sirloin tips. There was no mention on the menu that it came smothered in mushrooms. I do not like mushrooms so this was not okay. Need better descriptions of food items.
Great food, great service
Thank you for your review!
This is our very favorite restaurant in Gulf Shores. We’ve eaten thrrr twice this week!!
Wow! Thank you for your review! We are thrilled to be your favorite restaurant, and we look forward to seeing you back again soon!
Dinner with friends in a cozy booth with first class service was a pleasure. Everyone had high complements on the food. Planning the next visit.
Thank you for your review! We are glad to hear you enjoyed our booth and our first class service! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
The reviews were good, however our food was average. Oily taste on grouper, risotto was mushy and flour tasted. The people were nice.
We are disappointed to hear we did not exceed your expectations. Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback and hope you will give us another opportunity to wow you.
This was a fantastic find! Our first time dining at Sunset Cork Room and it was a wonderful dining experience! We will definitely return! The grouper was delicious. The live entertainment by Lisa Christian was a wonderful addition to our dining experience. Our server, Monique, was very helpful and offered knowledgeable suggestions from the wine list. Overall a great evening!
Thank you for your review! We are excited that you chose to dine with us and that you enjoyed your dining experience as well as our live music. We will pass your compliments onto your server Monique. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The food was excellent. The prices were great. My son got the grouper and really enjoyed it.
Thank you for your review! We are glad to hear you enjoyed our grouper. It is definitely a house favorite.
What an absolute gem! We went on a Saturday night with another couple and everyone's dinner was great! There was live entertainment - a gentleman playing music on saxophone. The music was not loud and was a very nice touch to the dinner. The staff was attentive but not overbearing. We all discussed that we want to go back next time we are in town and we would order the same dishes!!!
Wow! Thank you for your lovely review! We are so happy you found us and gave us a try. We look forward to having you back.
First time visiting while on vacation in Orange Beach and was very impressed. I had the filet tips and my husband had the grouper and both were delicious. My husband raved over his Old Fashion and my extra dirty martini was really good so I have to give the bartender some props as well. Great small off the beaten path location when you've had enough fried seafood.
Thank you for your review! Excellent choice; the grouper and the filet tips are definitely house favorites. We are excited to hear you enjoyed out cocktails, and we will be sure to pass your compliments onto the bartender!
As always, this visit to Sunset Cork Room was wonderful.
Excellent food and service. Great drinks. The music was spectacular. Great restaurant!
Server was lovely and helpful. We sat outside. Quiet and nice atmosphere. Food was good. The hummus was amazing! Scallops were cooked perfect.... I feel the favor was ok. Red wines were great. Overall perhaps a little pricey compared to similar places I’ve been to.
Great drink and dinner menu. Fresh seafood. Highly recommend the lobster bisque (when they have it, it goes quick!) Went one night on vacation with my family and we loved it so much we made reservations for another night of our trip before we even finished our meal. We saw two different performers. Had great conversations with both of them and even got to request a few songs. Will definitely go back if in town again!!
