Ever since we've had small kids, this place has been our "de facto" for those evenings when your burned out, hungry, and don't feel like cooking. The staff is very accommodating for those with babies, infants, and toddlers.

Casual dining, with a large selection of burgers and fish. Decorated in Hawaiian style, many of the menu items go with this theme. food is reasonable, and service is good. Friendly staff

Islands has great burgers and other sandwiches, and a chicken tortilla soup that I really love. The service is very friendly, and the decor in line with the name of the restaurant. A good chain.

This Islands is the best in San Diego by far. The service alone is fantastic and over powers the other locations without even trying. Friendly staff, excellent service & food/drinks made how you order them. This location has never disappointed.

I visited Islands at 5:30 PM on a Friday evening and had a short wait for a table for one (traveling solo). Had I shown up around 6:00 PM, the wait would have been longer. I opted for the "Bluenami" burger with the Island fries. The burger was cooked medium well and seemed to be a bit dry but tasty... More
