Delicious Fresh Seafood Right At The Beach

We had read an article featuring the Island Grill and how good the food was so we decided to check it out. We were able to get half price dining certs through our Pristine Agency account which helped us pick too. The Island Grill is a little pricey but is worth it.

Atmosphere was inviting, our waitress, Kayla, was knowledgeable, bubbly and efficient. Our BOGO meals were amazing. I ordered the Maryland Crabcake which were full of lump crabmeat, fried to perfection and was served with zucchini and mashed potatoes. My husband ordered the deliciously fresh tuna topped with squash noodle slaw and rice. We enjoyed a decadent flourless chocolate bourbon torte.... More

The restaurant is small and seating is very crowded. BOGO menu was limited to what they had on the Blackboard, most places all items on the menu are available that do BOGO. However, the meals were very good, sister and I had the Stuffed Filet and the men had the Blackened Flounder. Service was very good. Desserts were good but... More

We dined here on a Monday night recently, taking advantage of a bogo special. The menu is rather limited but we found several dishes to our liking. The best was shrimp and scallops on linguine in a light creamy parmesan sauce that was about as good as it gets. I plan to return soon just for that dish. The wine... More

Had a reservation. Got seated at reservation time. Nobody came to take our drink order or to check if anybody was waiting on us. Sat there for 15 minutes with menues in front of us. Waitresses walked past us 2 or 3 times. Finally we asked who was our waitress. 4 minutes later as we started to leave a waitress... More

This is a small place but service is great and the food is delicious. Wear warm clothes if you visit on a cold night because it always seems a bit cool. However, that did not deter us from eating there 3 times in the same week when we visited.

This is an expensive restaurant but food is amazing. There isn't a dress code but people do seem to dress up when eating here.

We visited there last night for the Monday-Tuesday meal deal. The have a list of about 4 gourmet specials from which to order. The regular menu is also available but not part of that special. I had the Sheepshead fish special and my wife had shrimp and scallops over linguini. Being a special, the portions were a little smaller but... More

The building used to be a dump and the food not much better. New ownership has made it a treasure. Being off season made it easier to get into. The menu is varied and not all seafood. And the seafood is not all fried. Perhaps the best crab cakes I have ever had. Not sure there was any bread involved.... More

Small resturant so make a reservation and then sit back for an amazing evening. Steaks and seafood at their best. Generous portions. Generous cocktails and good wines. Service is personal and locals know all the servers. Don't expect elegance or fast service-good food cooked to order takes time, so plan on an evening with friends. A bit pricey for children,...
