We were on our way to Revelstoke and decided to stop in Golden for lunch. We immediately searched Trip Advisor and found The Island. We arrived around 3:00 pm on a Tuesday and lucky for us it was Mexican day. Our server was very down to earth and personable, felt like we were being served by a friend. We ordered... More

Had never been here before and will certainly stop again for dinner. Excellent dinners for my wife and I. NOT pricey and lovely restaurant decor with linen napkins. It was like dining in someone's home. Most enjoyable after a long day's drive. Excellent menu....check it out.

Had the Elk burger, was great. The staff were very accommodating moving us inside when it got cold. The restaurant has a great quirky atmosphere. Service was a little slow but they were catering for 3 large groups and we were a late booking. Reasonably priced.

Unfortunately, we were not so impressed of this restaurant as other posters on this website. The food is ok, service is ok but that's it. No extra attention for customers, they just do their job. There are better, more cosy restaurants with better food in Golden.

Our first impression from the outside was that the Island is a rustic, rather old-style restaurant, but we were really surprised from the inside, the staff and the food . From the inside the restaurant looks modern, contemporary, more like fine dining that a family restaurant. We were friendly welcomed and get a nice table for two. We ordered Black... More

Housed in a log cabin style building, the menu at this restaurant is varied and tasty. Good choice of wines and reasonable prices. Would visit again.

We enjoyed our dinner here very much. We had driven a long way and had an early dinner before finding our chalet.

Dropped in for an early lunch and was greeted in a friendly manner. The food was fantastic and different, but very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend a visit to this charming log cabin setting on the edge of town
