At The Sunset Room, we want to take the Island dining and events experience to the next level. We focus on putting unique twists to classic East Coast dishes, staying true to our roots while showing innovation in our kitchen and wedding services.
The Sunset Room operates as both a restaurant and wedding/events venue on a seasonal basis running from May - October. We often have live music on the waterfront for patrons and our staff to enjoy. We host weddings on the weekends, these are great opportunities for a change of environment for our staff and they are really fun to work.
The work culture is fun and relaxed. We're a small but mighty group looking for more staff to join our team to make the Sunset Room the best spot for entertainment in Summerside.
