Nothing sets the atmosphere for seafood like a table on the lake. Sunset Grille in Sebring, Florida sits right on Lake Jackson and offers up this experience, alongside some of the freshest seafood around.

One seafood entree that is a must-try is the Drunken Sailor, featuring chopped lobster, shrimp, and scallops sauteed in a wine cream and parmesan sauce with fresh pasta. The parmesan is the perfect level of richness, while the hint of wine is a nice touch of zest too. For something a little sweeter, the Alaskan Catch features an eight-ounce blackened salmon in a stellar pineapple honey glaze.

Every seafood entree comes with choice of pasta, yellow rice, vegetable du jour, or baked potato on the side, and a freshly baked dinner roll with garlic butter. For those who just want a little bit of everything, the Fisherman’s Platter comes with fried fish, conch fritter, fried shrimp, and fried scallops.

For a taste of Cajun cuisine, the New Orleans features blackened fish served over linguini, sauteed mushrooms, tomatoes, and scallions in a creamy cheese sauce, while a taste of tropical flavor can be found in the Hawaiian, featuring mahi mahi and coconut shrimp in a fresh sambuca cream sauce with mango salsa.

For a little surf and turf, the aptly named Surf & Turf features an eight-ounce sirloin steak with shrimp and scallops sauteed in a garlic butter sauce. For steak-lovers, there are a number of great options too, including the twelve-ounce Big Apple, ten-ounce Branding Iron, and eight-ounce Wrangler.

Make sure to try out one of the many unique appetizers at Sunset Grille too, like the fried pickle slices, gator tail, or kitchen balls, house spicy potato balls stuffed with pork and beef with a side of buffalo sauce. The conch fritters are a local favorite too, featuring island style conch and a creamy chili aioli dipping sauce.
