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

One of those EXCELLENT hole in the wall places

We have eaten at the Island Grille a couple times and enjoyed it immensely on both occasions. It is a small hole in the wall white building that you have to drive down an alleyway to get to. However, there is a sign on the main road pointing you in their direction. We did not have reservations... read more

We try to visit the Island Grille on each trip to the Atlantic Beach, NC area. The food has always been outstanding. We usually go on Monday or Tuesday when the small restaurant has its two-for-one deals. I got the filet mignon on this trip and it was the best meal I have eaten, including some at places with double... More

Great restaurant features delectable scallops and crab cakes that are cooked to perfection. However this popular restaurant gets crowded and very noisy. I recommend an early dinner to enjoy a quieter table with a more attentive server.

Island Grill is our favorite restaurant on the Crystal Coast. The food is always delicious and well presented. The staff is so friendly and the service is excellent. Along with the delicious main courses, the desserts are also good, esp. the key lime pie. Patrons should be aware that the restaurant is small and noisy. The restaurant is open for... More

On Monday and Tuesday they have buy one get one free. It is a great deal as dinners are pricey, but well worth it. Food is delicious--crab cakes were outstanding. The presentation is wonderful as is the extensive wine, beer and liquor list. Restaurant is very small, so be sure to make a reservation..

The two for one specials are on Monday and Tuesday nights. Every time we vacation in the area, we make reservations for both nights. I had my heart set on the filet, but the menu included fresh wahoo. I changed my mind when it looked like everyone had ordered the fish for their entree. I was not disappointed. It was... More

A wonderful dinner and a great wine list! It was our first visit there and it will absolutely not be the last. The children's menu was very limited and when I asked if the listed shrimp could be fried I was told, with a bit of an attitude that they

This place has the best food in the area and the staff and owners are terrific. They always take care of us when we are in the area. They have a BOGO special on Monday and Tuesday nights that is very popular so make reservations of you want to come. Their Sunday Brunch is quite good as well. We love... More
