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

Whenever we vacation in the Crystal Coast area, we make sure to dine at Island Grille. We expect to have a satisfying dining experience - and our most recent visit met these expectations. We always make a reservation for Monday or Tuesday, when they have two for one entrees (those that are ordered off the blackboard). My wife always gets... More

We had been here a few years previously on the recommendation of a family member and decided to return for Saturday dinner at the end of our stay in Emerald Isle where some of our dining experiences had been "iffy.". To be honest, the restaurant doesn't look exceptional outside and the furnishings inside are fairly ordinary and closely packed. But... More

We made our first visit to Island Grill last night for a birthday dinner. It will not be our last!! Outstanding service and menu. Extensive craft beer and wine lists. I had a fantastic Argentine malbec. We both ended up choosing the filet stuffed with Gorgonzola but next time I am trying the fish - it looked yummy. The filet... More

The meal was first rate. The owner was friendly and positive. I know we'll be back - and often. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let that fool you.
