The restaurant looks very nice from the outside and it's cosy and nicely decorated inside BUT we were there for a good food, which we didn't get. We shared a seafood platter which was not enjoyable (and I love seafood), weird flavours and the quality of the seafood wasn't' the greatest. For the money we spent on lunch we were... More

They did our wedding reception menu in October 2013 and it was excellent! Great service, very accommodating and the food was cooked to perfection. I couldn't have asked for a better restaurant to do our wedding! Thank you! I highly recommend this restaurant for your next big event!

Great food and great atmosphere brings me back time and time again. This restaurant highlights some of the best Golden has to offer. That is saying a lot as for a small rural town the food is amazing at so many great places.

Supper menu doesn't start until 5 but lots of great choices anyway. Monday is Mexican special and food is priced right for a good portion. Service was great although it was slow time of day. Craft beer from Revelstoke is gold on tap. Will go back again!

Go for the fish and chips. Really nice place in central part of Golden. One of the top places to eat in town.

Perfectly executed meal, for a price that, if anything, should be higher. If you're travelling through Golden and have to stop to eat, take the short detour down to the Island Restraunt and enjoy food (and atmosphere) that's worth paying for.

My wife and I had dinner here while on a kids free ski trip. Hostess, server and all staff were friendly and in great spirits. As my wife is gluten intolerant sometimes finding restaurants becomes a chore, however the island has a great and tasty gluten free option. I would also recommend the jerk chicken Sanny and tortilla soup. When... More
