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!
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.
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!!
We were in Orange Beach for one week and fortunate enough to have dinner at Sunset Cove -- absolutely wonderful!@
Great food, great ambience—best strawberry shortcake I’ve ever had!
Excellent food and our server Lee was awesome. We dined outside and it was quite relaxing.
It was a wonderful evening and we felt very safe and attended too. Thank you for the best night of our vacation!
Service, Ambiance and Food were great. The live Music from the saxophonist was a pleasant surprise! Will definitely go back!
What a delightful evening. We had never been here before and were delighted with the results. The ambiance was great and they had a live sax player which was not too loud and very pleasant to hear. The Lollipop Lamb Chops for an appetizer was phenominal and I had the special and my wife had the petite grouper and both were excellent. You could get the high end stuff which looked very good but these were both reasonably priced and just the right amount. Not huge portions but acceptable for sure. This is not a buffet but a nice elegant romantic setting to enjoy a cocktail and some spectacular food. Will return soon.
First visit- excellent food, a little pricey with drinks & dessert
We made our reservation early in the week and there were not a lot of good times available. I think that was also due to them social distancing tables inside the restaurant. So book early, they take reservations. The food was delicious! Everyone loved what they ordered. Crab bisque was the soup of the day and that was delicious. We ordered the parmesan shrimp and lamp lollipops for an appetizer. They were both good, but if you had to choose one over the other, pick the lamb lollipops. Other items that our table of 6 picked to eat were caesar salad with chicken, petite grouper, salmon, 6 oz filet mignon and the steak burger with bacon. All of it was delicious. There was not a kids menu so my son at the steak burger and we just took half of it back to the condo with us. It was my husband's birthday so I asked if they did anything for birthday's, our server gave me the choice between 3 different kinds of dessert and I picked one. I don't remember what it was called, but it was good. But then I got the bill and we were charged $7 for the cake. That was fine, but when you spend over $200 for the meal, you think they could throw in a slice of cake for someone's birthday!
We had an awesome dinner with outstanding service. The food was great, serving size just right. Great music but very soft. Will visit again.
Great service. Seafood cooked perfectly and soft live music. Can’t beat it!
We ran across this place on trip advisor while in Orange beach on vaca. Service & food were great! Highly recommend the grouper!
Service and food were outstanding, as usual. Food is prepared fresh for everyone. Great place to have a relaxing dinner, our favorite place at the beach.
We really enjoyed ourself it was our first time at this restaurant and it's the first time in five years I've had food as good as this anywhere on this gulf coast
We had a great meal, and felt very safe with all of their procedures in place.
Great food as always!
Thank you for your review! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Wonderful experience. Great atmosphere with amazing food and live music along with very reasonable prices
Thank you for you review! We are excited to hear you enjoyed our atmosphere and live music!
