About Us

Who we are & what we do

Sunrise Grill is a family owned and run breakfast and lunch restaurant located in the heart of Boone, North Carolina. We strive to provide delicious, varied and creative comfort food, in a relaxed and casual atmosphere.

Many of our menu items are true Sunrise originals that you will not find anywhere else. Our customers often describe our food as the best of its kind in Boone and our staff as very friendly, hardworking, helpful and second to none. The quality food, great servers and friendly atmosphere all make Sunrise a local favorite and an alternative to the humdrum options you may find elsewhere.
Sunrise also offers catering for breakfast, lunch, dinner and BBQ for parties of 10 to 300 with full service, pick-up, and delivery options available. The restaurant is also available to you after hours as a venue that can accommodate up to 50 of your guests.

Why not bring a little sunshine to your day today?


Sunrise Grill is owned and operated by the Hunter Family, Lisa, Ian and Liam. Liam is a trained chef. Lisa has worked in custom specialty foods for twenty five years, they both are extremely creative and Ian likes to eat their food!

We purchased Sunrise in October of 2012 after moving from Boston’s North Shore.

We and our awesome staff work diligently to create a comfortable experience, a quality product and a reputation that Sunrise is truly a must visit destination for locals and visitors alike.

We are very grateful, our family has been readily accepted into the community and we love being a part of the local Boone flavor.
