Changes coming to the Sunset Grill Restaurant

The Sunset Grill has been working very hard to provide our homeowners with the best possible food options at the best price possible. In previous months, improvements have been made in every area from quality of food to staffing and the serving process. All of these improvements and additions are being made in the best interest of our valued homeowners.

The Sunset Grill is pleased to announce new events and improved menus in September.

Every first Sunday of the month we will be offering our Omelet Station. From 8:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. stop in and get a made-to-order omelet with a featured side item for only $6. As always, our entire menu will be made available as well.

Starting in September, a new breakfast and lunch menu will be made available to our guests. We have been taking a close look at sales and the variety of items we offer. We are proud of this new menu and hope our guests will all come in and see the new items we have to offer.

Keep an eye out for advertisements about our new weekly dinners. We will be offering dinner service with a regular dinner menu on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. These dinners will be full service, will have a full bar available and will be absolutely delicious! Please keep in mind that while we plan on doing these weekly dinners on a consistent basis, we may have to occasionally cancel a dinner service due to a previously scheduled event. The Sunset Grill will do everything in its power to notify our guests in advance when this happens.

In addition to dinners, keep an eye out for our new happy hour dates and time featuring snacks, drink specials and various themed events.

Please give a warm welcome to our newest member of the Sunset Grill staff, Chef Blake Weisenbach. Blake is a graduate of the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts. He has more than 10 years of experience in food preparation, menu creation, food cost, inventory control and responsibility for the overall kitchen operation. In his most recent position Blake was the head chef at a restaurant in Alaska and during the off season was the lead sauté cook at the Francisco Grande Hotel and Golf Resort. His experience is enhanced by his certifications from Certified Food Protection Manager, to Safe-Serv.

The addition of our new events and dinners are possible in large part because of Chef Blake, the newest addition to our staff. Sun Lakes Country Club is thrilled to have such a talented chef on our team.

As always, the Sunset Grill is open seven days a week from 7:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. throughout the year. Stop in and see all the great things we’ve been up to! Keep an eye out for our upcoming dinners and other fun events.

We hope to see you soon!
