The Island Grille is a small restaurant on Atlantic Beach. We specialize in keeping our menu fresh and try to accommodate both those with a thirst for fresh seafood and those who would rather try a traditional dish with a new perspective. Although we would love to accommodate everyone who walks in our door reservations are recommended and the restaurant is LIVELY! You may be seated close to other guests, you may get visits from all of our staff throughout the night as they graze your table.. If you are looking for a great meal in a fun and fearless environment check us out on Monday or Tuesday during BOGO entree night. If you like things a little more laid back I recommend reservations any other day! But, I always recommend them!!! See you soon at The Island Grille! -Amiee Scott General Manager

Filet is to die for!

Got the stuffed Filet with garlic mashed potatoes & fried zuchinni. Food and service is excellent. Restaurant is cramped and reservations are a must. BOGO on Monday & Tuesday.

Me and my wife visited this restaurant due to TA.but should have read reviews first. This place is soo overpriced!! Wouldn't have minded much if the portion size matched the price. I had ordered the shrimp and gouda grits with scallops and when our server sat my plate in front of me i sorta laughed and said REALLY is this... More

Wanted to give this place a higher score but the summer dinner salad was a meager portion of greens served in a soup bowl rather than on a dinner plate. I paid extra for the additional grilled shrimp to turn it into a main course, but the shrimp was overcooked. I left still hungry and had to make popcorn to... More

Everyone raves about this place. The locals love the "two for one" meal on Mondays and Tuesdays. However, tonight was not a good experience. I doubt I will ever go again. It was so loud we had to yell to be heard. They had run out of one of the special dishes and offered no substitution. Our fish was tough... More

We have been to this restaurant many times over the last 10 years. The food and service are always excellent. The Filet is their signature meal but there crab cakes are the best.

Small place that seemed to efficiently move through diners. I actually really liked the cozy atmosphere and our service was above average. We were pleased with both our appetizers and dessert, but the entrées were average. The lamburger hamburger was charred, and all I could taste was burnt meat. The shrimp scallops and grits were runny and lacking in flavor.... More

Best crab cakes i have ever had. Service perfect. There is only one table for a large party of 8 so we were lucky. out of the way, and so worth it. I would look forward to dining there again.....

You HAVE experience this amazing place. BUT you have to have a reservation. A small but fun, friendly atmosphere. Limited seating for a table and at the great bar. The staff is fantastic and overly friendly making you feel one of the family on the first visit. Probably the best hand made Crab Cakes you will ever have anywhere.97% crab... More
