The BBQ shrimp is just amazing. Be sure to ask for extra crusty bread!

Since I am always the designated driver, I order water or a coke. Alcoholic drinks here will cost you quite a bit, but that’s normal for ordering alcohol in most restaurants.

Of course besides the excellent food, the best reason to head to Sunset Pointe is the sunset.

Desserts are also available, and this one was super yummy, although you don’t get a lot for $10. This is pretty common for desserts in restaurants; if you want quantity, the better idea is to buy a pie from a grocery store.
