Visted on a Monday night during their two for one special, have ate here many times and never leave disappointed. The food is well prepared and everything tasted very good. We sat at the bar as we didn't have reservations. Service at the bar wasn't the best, probably the worst I've had here. Very good food at a good price.... More

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner last night and I was not overly impressed. The atmosphere was cozy and the staff was friendly. We ordered the mac and cheese appetizer and also the crab dip. Both were underwhelming in my opinion. For our entrees we got the burger trio and a blackened chicken Cesar salad. The burgers did... More

I didn't like the atmosphere at all, but what a bargain. The Island Grill has a two-for-one deal on Monday and Tuesday nights. We had filet mignon and it was excellent. The steaks were cooked perfectly. We didn't try them, but the fish dishes on the two-for-one menu sounded marvelous, We plan to return.

We found this restaurant to be average in food quality. Service was good atmosphere noisy limited menu. With many restaurants available on this island would probably not return.

We travel to Atlantic Beach every year. We have been going there for 25 years. Always on our to-do list is the Island Grill. They have a BOGO on Monday night. We nearly always get the stuffed filet. There is no salad and just some rice that comes with the meal - but the filet is melt in your mouth... More

The Island Grille can be a fun night out, especially if you're staying on Atlantic Beach and don't feel like driving to Morehead City or Beaufort. The food is consistently good, and a great deal on Monday and Tuesday when the specials are two for one. The only drawbacks are service can be erratic and the noise level is very... More

been here often over the years and the food used to be very good. this time it was average. maybe because it was on tuesday (which, along with monday) is two for one night. the place is crowded, loud and hot (the AC cannot keep up with the crowd). also, the red wine glasses are pitiful-small and thick like something...

everything i've read about the island grille, good and bad proved true so i can only confirm what others have said. the place is tiny and, on a saturday night in july, was crowded and noisy...as expected. servers and staff were very friendly and helpful. the reason i will probably go back is that the crab cakes contained the most...

This is the best restaurant in Atlantic Beach. Great food and friendly staff. Amos Mosquito is good but it is always packed. Island Grille is comfortable, friendly and professionally run. We have eaten there four times already in seven days and we have not had one item that wasn't delicious.

Went here 2 years ago and thought it was cute so decided to go back. Well , it was super crowded , cramped, loud, and pricey . Not sure what I liked so much the first time. I'm a size 2 and could barely fit in my chair. It was also the exact same menu as two years ago. Mussels... More
