Looking forward to working with you again!

Vegan Dining Experience 10/08/2021
Good afternoon, I just wanted to reach out after me and my spouse ate lunch at Sunshine yesterday. We had one of the best dining experiences we have had in a long time. We ordered the fried shrimp with mango chutney to start off, and it was absolutely perfect. I ordered the grilled veggies on flatbread and my spouse got the steak bomber sub (can’t remember the exact name) and we both loved our entrees. I love that Sunshine offers vegan cheese and other vegan options/substitutes…it is a rarity around this area and it is greatly appreciated. Our server was also excellent. I hope that Sunshine continues with the excellent quality and service, we will definitely be back!
Have a great weekend, Cameron Rossi
Box Lunch Catering 08/23/2021
Dear Effie and Bill,
I have been singing your praises for days. Not only were you able to fill a time-sensitive order but the lunches far exceeded our expectations. Everyone has commented on the quality of the ingredients and the generous contents of the boxes. In these days, when a boxed lunch is a boxed lunch, we were all delighted to see it elevated to something so fresh and wonderful. Thank you, thank you, thank you! As always, it is a true pleasure to work with you.
Wedding Catering 08/14/2021
Sunshine Grille catered our wedding last week and we were blown away by how beautiful and delicious everything was! The cocktail hour was amazing and beautifully displayed. The staff and chef who worked our wedding were so professional, pleasant to work with, and made sure that everyone was having a great time. They were flexible with their menu, providing vegetarian options for those who wanted, and went above and beyond in helping break down chairs from our ceremony. They even stored the leftover cake at their restaurant for a few days until we could pick it up. I highly recommend Sunshine and we will definitely use them again in the future.
Breakfast Catering 08/13/2021
I ordered the breakfast for our law firm for a training day. Everything was AMAZING! We did the French Toast Casserole with 3 kinds of eggs, 3 kinds of meat & vegetarian bacon. Everyone absolutely LOVED everything! Nate, the delivery person was so professional and did an absolutely great job with set up.
Thanks for getting our day off to a great start!

Family Gathering in Owings Mills Md. 04/24/2021
I would like to sincerely thank you and your team for the wonderful food you delivered yesterday. I live in NY, but most of my family reside in Baltimore-Washington area, so we’ve picked my cousin’s place at Owings Mills to celebrate my 60th birthday. I decided to organize everything myself, choose your place based on the Web reviews, and was quite nervous – what if it’s a mistake? But we all were quite impressed by the quality of your delicious food. My family is originally from Baku, Azerbaijan, and everybody is a good cook, so it’s usually not too easy to impress them, but you did just that! Thanks to you, everybody enjoyed the party very much. Please pass our appreciation to your team. I’m planning to post a review when I got home. Could you please let me know what is your preferred site for the review – Google, your site, Yelp, or all of the above?
With kindest regards
Baby Shower 07/18/2020
Effie and Bill,
I wanted to follow up and let you know how much we enjoyed those delicious sandwiches you made for us last Saturday for the baby shower we hosted.

You were a pleasure to work with; and we wish only the best for you all during these challenging times.

Leader Dog Fundraiser at Boordy 04/13/2019
Hi Bill, Effie and everyone that assisted with our event:
Our mission was to raise money and awareness for “Leader Dog for the Blind” headquartered in Rochester, Michigan. The Charitable Event was packed with Lion members and others from the various Lions’ Clubs in the Greater Baltimore area. We had an excellent speaker from NYC who talked about being blind and what her Service dog does to give her independence and safe mobility. Sunshine Grille provided the wonderful food for the evening. Everyone complimented the food and the servers from Sunshine Grille. The display was extraordinary and the quality, abundance and serving of the food was way beyond expectation! Super delicious! Thank you Bill, Effie & Stella and all who had a part in making our Event so Successful!

Sorry it’s taking me so long to get this to you, but I really wanted to thank you for taking care of our son’s engagement party on the 29th. Everything was absolutely FABULOUS!! The food was an absolute hit!! We probably didn’t need to add the extra meat trays, but that’s ok…better than running short. The Tuscan trays you pulled together were on point and the Greek appetizers were amazing as I knew it would be. We will call you again for our next function and definitely recommend you to all of our friends. Thanks so much for all you did and your expert guidance!

St. Stephens, Kingsville Md. 09/13/2017Bill
Thanks to you and your entire team. The appetizers and desserts for St Stephen last event were enjoyed by all. Had plenty of leftovers (many of our more senior folks do not like to eat in the evening) so some folks took “take home”.
Pickup was so easy….the guys loaded everything in my trunk. Since many of our parishioners count you as family and visit SG often, I expect you’ll hear from several of them how much they enjoyed the foods you prepared. Appreciate all you help and attention to detail!

Wedding Reception, 200 Guests, Morris Meadows 07/02/2016
This 4 star review says “fantastic, a solid option” which is exactly how we felt with Effie and Bill’s services for our wedding. They catered our wedding on July 2nd this summer and guests are still raving about the food; especially about the cocktail hour. Bill worked with us to create our dream of a “New York” style cocktail hour which meant ALOT of food but still in our budget. We had crab balls, shrimp, 3 kinds of meatballs, a Mediterranean station, chicken skewers, a fruit station, and even more- all of it was amazing, delicious, and displayed beautifully. My guests thought that was all for dinner when they arrived. Dinner was served buffet style- carving station, roasted vegetable on a green salad, macaroni and cheese, and shrimp & scallop carbonara- again, all of it was perfectly delicious and served. They did run out of meat at the serving station before the last 15-18 guests made it to the line and I believe that was the only negative of the entire evening. Dessert included different cheesecake bites, cake pops, and tartlets- can’t say enough about how great they were. They accommodated our wishes and needs in every step of the process. Bill and Effie were a pleasure to work with. I have and would highly recommend them to anyone in the Baltimore area for weddings or any other event for affordable, extremely well prepared, wonderful catering. Many thanks to both of them for what they were able to do for us and our family and friends!

Mom’s Surprise Birthday Party, 05/09/2016
I was hosting a surprise party for my mom and we had Sunshine Grille cater it – we were very impressed! I gave Bill specific instructions on the drop-off time since she would only be out of the house for an hour, and he arrived promptly on time, helped set everything up and left a few extra sternos, it was perfect and I so appreciated his punctuality.
Now on to the food, it was delicious! Particular highlights/crowd favorites were:
– the spinach triangles (spanikopita)
– beef wellington puffs
– coconut finger shrimp w/ mango salsa (These were the most popular!)
– balsamic grilled chicken skewers w/ roasted red pepper and goat cheese (We requested these be skewers rather than sandwiches, and they happily obliged. These were my favorite, they were amazingly flavorful!)
– petit crab cakes (full of lump crabmeat)
– strawberry salad
Everything was very tasty, and my guests were beyond impressed with the variety and quality of the food. The menu for catering is pretty broad and there are a lot of great choices, it was hard to narrow it down. Overall, we were very pleased with Sunshine Grille and will definitely be using them again for future parties. Highly recommend!

We are writing to thank you for your extremely generous donation of catered food on behalf of Sunshine Grille Bistro & Catering to the 2nd annual Relaxation at the Vine, an event benefiting the Kennedy Krieger Institute Down Syndrome Clinic & Research Center. We genuinely appreciate the opportunity to feature your delicious food at tour event. Thank you for going above and beyond to stay and serve our guests, as well. Sunshine Grille’s commitment to the community is truly remarkable. We know that without your time and donation, we would not have had such an outstanding and successful event.

They catered our wedding reception, and did an amazing job! The owners themselves were very easy to work with. Their menus were extensive and ranged from casual to formal, eclectic to traditional. Perfect service and delicious food (not to mention, they did a beautiful presentation). Guests were raving about the food. I will use them again next time I need a caterer.
Johns Hopkins University Breakfast & Lunch 12/17/2015
Today was a hit….but honestly last week was too! You guys always take good care of us. The food and service were fantastic…one server worked great. We can certainly talk about mixing it up more next year. I am not sure we can extend the time too much but even the subtle changes that you made this year were a hit. A funny comment was made by one of our applicants upon arrival this morning. He wanted to know if we were once again having the smoothie bar for breakfast? The applicant said we are famous on the interview trail…..!! Looks like we definitely need to keep that on the menu again next year. You’re famous!
Oh…and the faculty loved the scrambled eggs last week and the potatoes today. Everything was so good!
My warmest regards!!!!!
University of Maryland Law School 3/11/2015
I just wanted to take a moment and send you an e-mail thanking you for all of your help. I’m sure you’ve had more difficult clients, but I’m sure I did not make things easy for you.
The food was excellent. Everyone enjoyed the variety. A lot of people asked for your information and where you were located. Hopefully, you will get a few more clients from their inquiries. At the end of the night, there were a couple mushroom caps, some of the pineapple, and only some of the crackers left. About 25 people made it out to the event out of the 34 RSVPs we received. That should be a small indicator of how much individuals ate.
Again, thank you very much!
Martin Marietta Magnesia Specialties Breakfast 2/24/2015

Thanks again and please go ahead and charge my card for the remaining owed and you can email the receipt.

Bill and Effie at the Sunshine Grille did a wonderful job catering my husband’s 65th birthday celebration in our home! From set-up to clean-up everything was amazing…..all I had to do was entertain my guests! AND the food was outstanding! Bill was wonderful in describing the various appetizers and main dishes they offer as I had never experienced their food. The food was not only delicious, but unique…certainly not your typical catering menu! I was so delighted that I booked them for the very next weekend to cater my employee holiday party! Thank you both so much for making my events a success! Sincerely, Diane ~

The food was delicious and the presentation was upscale and unique. From the ahi tuna, smoked salmon to the cheesecake lollipops , everyone was raving about the food and service. Bill, his wife and chef were all very helpful and professional. They allowed me to enjoy our party with no worries and took care of everything the entire night. I will definitely use Bill again for small and large ,formal and informal parties.

I can’t tell you how many people came up to tell me how great the food was and they were going back for 2nds and 3rds!

Everything was delicious, and it was provided in generous quantities! But beyond that, we are also very grateful for the helpful guidance you gave us in planning the rest of the menu. The bison burgers came out great – particularly with your spreads- and the field greens you suggested made for a much nicer presentation than regular iceberg lettuce. We so appreciate your gourmet sense, your eye for detail, and your desire to help us have a wonderful party!
Thank you so much!

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our experience in your restaurant tonight. I am Greek and my family always tries to find places that have close to homemade Greek food. In this area it is very hard to find. I have to say you definitely got it! The Avegolemono was so close to the way we make it, although we use orzo. The taste was superb! My son and I had lamb and my husband choose Moussaka. The food as well as the service was excellent! We will be back again and again! Can’t wait to share with my whole family! The price and location are also a big plus, looking forward to warmer weather, so we can sit outside.

Bill and Effie,
Wanted to thank you again for the wonderful party you gave recently for our friend, Agatha Wallace. The planning, setup, presentation, quality of the food, and friendly service was absolute perfection. Agatha and her friends were able to enjoy the day without worrying about one single thing. Everything was cleaned up and the house was left just as it was found. We can’t wait to have another event with you.
All the best,
Harry and Carol Sanders

Dear Bill & Effie,
Forgive me for not writing you earlier. Yes, everything was perfect. Everyone at the meeting had high praise for the food. A couple of the girls at that building mentioned they would keep you in mind for future luncheons. Always good to hear!! There was even enough leftovers that I ran over after lunch and took dinner home for me and my mom.
All my best, Angie

Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy eating @ The Grille. I have been there numerous times with friends for breakfast and have recently brought my husband on several Wednesday lunches. Each time the staff and food were terrific. The servers are very professional and attentive. Each time we visit we try something new and nothing has let us down—-always a delightful experience.
Great Job—-keep up the good job.

Large Lunchbox Order for Gallup Focus Group Nov 14, 2013
The order was great and the two ladies who delivered the food were delightful. Even with the somewhat confusing directions I supplied, they were early. The boxes were attractive and the food was delicious. Not everyone knows how to make a good brownie, but Sunshine Grille does! There were so many high level people involved in a series of all-day focus groups and the lunches “had to be right!” My manager and myself were both very pleased.
There were less attendees than expected, so I shared some of the meals with my HR department, and some with the Wilmer folks who were our hosts for the event. The Wilmer coordinator was impressed with the meals and said she would like to use Sunshine Grille in the future when Wilmer has events. I would definitely use Sunshine Caterers again. Thank you so much.

The dinner was a big hit last night, I have attached the Thank You note from the personnel to me and I pass their thanks along to you. Thanks million !!!.
Family Gathering Sept 5, 2013
We were so, so happy with the luncheon fare we selected and your suggestions to us. Our family and friends expressed how delicious the food was and some had already visited your bistro repeatedly so they knew your food to be wonderful. There was plenty for the guests we hosted and of course….some leftovers to savor a bit longer as well. Everything arrived on time and the women from St. John’s who helped set up and serve even told us your staff who delivered it to the church was very friendly and accomodating. We could not have been happier and I’m sure you will have some new customers frequenting your restaurant! I know my husband and I intend to put it on our list of go to places and will highly recommend you to our circle of friends, co-workers and organizations we do work with.
Have a wonderful weekend!!
Birthday Party at Boordy Vineyards Sept 1, 2013
Hello Bill and Effie,
My husband, Pete, and I want to thank you for the SUPERB job that both of you and your staff did with Pete’s 80th birthday celebration last Sunday evening. I can sum it up best by saying that EVERYTHING exceeded our expectations. The food was all superb, and thoroughly enjoyed by our diverse guests. (We had people in attendance who live in several different areas in the USA and an age range of 1 to 93 years!) They all raved about the excellence of the foods and the service as well.
As the hostess, I had no worries and that was truly appreciated. All in all, the party was a HUGE success and I will continue to recommend your restaurant to all of our friends.
Breakfast Catering August 15, 2013
Just wanted to say what an excellent job you did on the Breakfast Catering this morning. The food was extremely delicious, very well received, and also displayed. I will be using your services again when I have any large group for a meeting at our location. I am sure I will see you at the restaurant again soon. Thanks again Bill and Effie for a job well done.

Restaurant Feedback May 16, 2013
I’ve been here twice, both for lunch and breakfast. For lunch, their sandwiches are off the hook. The first time I got a falafel sandwich, and I loved it! I definitely love the “relaxed diner” setting where it’s much more casual and welcoming than your standard diner. Although this isn’t much of a diner, it’s almost as though you’re just at somebodies house that has been revamped to look like a restaurant (which I love)
For breakfast, their prices are totally cool. Serve yourself your own coffee, with unlimited refills (sign me up), Their 3-egg omelets are HUMONGO! But regardless, it was delicious. My friend got banana pancakes and eggs there, and wow they do not cheap you out on the pancakes! Even the two of us couldn’t finish them! They were very very very very….delicious! Definitely give this place a try for a relaxed setting
Baptism Catering June 2, 2013
Thank you for the email. Everything was great yesterday. All of our guests loved the food. They especially raved about the meatballs, crab dip, and the strawberry shortcake. The delivery and set up was efficient and smooth. It was great to be able to spend our time enjoying our guests knowing that everything was taken care of. We would definitely use you for future events and recommend to friends. Thanks again for helping to make our daughter’s baptism a wonderful day!

Thank you so much, Bill. Wow—another great listing of specials! We don’t know if we’ll ever get to try all of your regular menu items! I can’t tell you how much we’ve been enjoying your food. Please keep up the good work! You are a blessing!
Happy Easter to you and yours!

Friends at Sunshine Grill,
I just wanted to thank you for your assistance with making our Loyola Blakefield Science Department professional day at Boordy Vineyards, a huge success. The lunch that you prepared arrived on time and was delicious. There was plenty of food for everyone without a huge amount leftover. Everything that we needed was for serving was provided. The quality of food at any event is something that people always remember and your quality dishes and preparation made for a wonderful event. Thank you so much. Once again, thank you for helping to make our event successful.

Breakfast with our Dog Lacey
Hi Bill & Effie,
You wouldn’t know me by name or face, but I have been in love with your place since my first visit many years ago. I was so glad to see the building and location put to better use because I stopped going into the Fork Deli. Everything at your restaurant is great: menu, service, selection, price, quality, cleanliness, atmosphere, location, parking, etc…. I have even been getting my desserts for Thanksgiving Dinner from you for the past several years and getting rave reviews! Don’t worry I give your reastaurant all the credit. I’m always suggesting it as a great place to go for any meal and have introduced many friends and family to the place. My husband and I (and our yellow lab Lacey) enjoyed Saturday breakfast on the deck several weeks ago before yard sale-ing.
We weren’t able to attend any movie nights last year…but I think Mama Mia! would be an awesome and fitting (since it’s filmed in Greece) movie night for you to have. You could think about picnic boxes with Kasseri cheese/pita bread/tziki sauce with veggies/grape leaves/grilled sausage&feta skewers/and baklava for dessert.
Have a Great July 4th!
All The Best,
Pattie Rock Young
We are always impressed with the wonderful wait staff at Sunshine Grill. Don’t know how you do it, but they are some of the most conscientious young adults we’ve seen. We love them!

Best Diner on WYPR
(I) relocated down here from New Jersey back in the late 90s.
In New Jersey, we hold diners sacred the way Maryland holds crab cakes sacred. In New Jersey, if a diner isn’t up to standards it has no business. The same way someone selling an awful crabcake in Maryland would fare. It took me years to find a diner in Maryland that met my minimum standards. I’ve tried most of the ones your guests have spoken about but I care more about the quality of food and service rather than the decor. To that end… the best all around diner for any meal is the Sunshine Grille.
on the Dan Rodericks Show – WYPR
Sunshine Grille was outstanding. In addition to friendly prompt service, the selection of all items was tasty as well as filling. I would highly recommend the breakfast buffet with waffles to anyone. Many envious employees came by to smell the sweet aroma of the Belgian waffles and savory sausage and bacon. Our department was the lucky recipient of a delightful breakfast experience by Sunshine Grille… Thank you,

I just wanted to let you know how delicious all my orders were. They all got rave reviews. I even had 1/2 tray left to freeze (I hope that is okay.) I want to have it for my book club later on. Can I buy some marinara sauce to go with it? Thanks again and happy new year to you too!

Northrop Grumman ordered Lunch for two groups
One person told me that it was a great value for all that you received in the healthy box lunch. He enjoyed his roast beef and was quite impressed that it was greek yogurt in the box. He was so full that he didn’t have time to eat the side salad. He would definitely ask me to order from them again. I was impressed with the delivery girl how she came with a cart and in a timely manner. I had two orders from them and she had them both separated and labeled to make it easy for me when delivering them to the meetings.I would recommend Sunshine Grill to other groups when they ask me to order lunch for them.

Good People, Food & Service are what matters in these hard times
Bill & Effie,
I wanted to share how much I enjoyed my experience at the Sunshine Grille Saturday. While waiting for a friend to join me for breakfast, I had the opportunity to watch your staff as I sipped my coffee. These young people work together like clockwork, often needing only a nod or look from one another to make a connection in order to ensure good customer service. I appreceiate and respect their working relationship and interaction in order to keep the Grille running smoothly. The restaurant is a distance from my home and this was only my second visit; however, I do hope to make the trip more often.

Can’t Go Wrong Here
Have dined here many times, breakfast, lunch and dinner, always great. The calamari is wonderful, the hot turkey sandwich is good, the fish and chips very tasty, the desserts to die for & the service is great!
Barry Kozlowski – 09/12/2011
Visited Sunshine for the first time last night and will be returning again and again! The moussaka was divine – a nice portion that I could not finish. The avgolemono soup is a little bit of heaven and the Greek salad was crisp and refreshing. The service was friendly – you never feel rushed and the prices are very affordable.
Bonnie H. – 5/25/11
I have been to The Sunshine Grille many times and find it extremely hard to order anything other than the Bermuda Turkey panini! While everything I’ve had there is fanastic… this is the best sandwich I have ever had! Think salad meets stir fry meets homemade roasted turkey on a panini!

Peanut Butter pancakes
My husband & I visited this morning for breakfast after a friend recommended your amazing restaurant. We absolutely loved it! I got the new peanut butter pancakes and they were perfect. Not too rich but great flavor! My husband got the Homestyle Greek Omelet and he couldn’t eat it all. The only complaint was that there were some egg shells in his but that happens I will be telling all my friends about your restaurant!

Sunshine Grill is always delightful and delicious. Gyros are fantabulous and the Dec. special – BBQ pulled pork is incredible – far superior to Famous Daves. Many of my friends now know this place is a great find and no one has been disappointed.

Still true more than 3 years later!
I said this, back on March 10, 2007: “Don’t miss this hidden gem!”
“Best lamb chops you’ll ever taste! Service is friendly and informal, decor is nice, and the prices are reasonable. For a local neighborhood convenience, the Sunshine Grille is ideal.”
Updating on May 15, 2010: I wouldn’t change anything I said then, except to add that I have been back many, many times in the last three years, and it only gets *BETTER* each time. Service is invariably friendly and perfectly polite. I always feel thoroughly relaxed and comfortable in the neat and calm environment. The quality of the food is invariably top-notch. If I had to rate Sunshine Grille in two words, it would simply be “Maximum Favorable”.

Tonight I had the broiled seafood platter special which was unbelievably delicious. We have been going to Sunshine Grill since it opened and never had a bad meal. Especially love the chicken noodle soup too!

A well kept secret
We love this place. From the relaxing breakfasts on the side porch in the warmer months to the delicious desserts and coffee on Saturday nights, this is our little secret. We only tell a few close friends about this place because we don’t want it to be too crowded. Service is always great, food yummy, and prices are reasonable.
