As title says, good food, but the service could be better. Restaurant was almost empty, yet food was slow to come out. My mahi mahi tacos were not that great - tortilla was raw. Will I come back? Yes. But it would not be my first choice.

This is a chain restaurant with it's "corporate menu". I have been to this location a number of times since it's opening. With very few exceptions the service has been very good. The food quality is good. The portion sizes are satisfying. For the best value Islands has a happy hour menu at the bar which offers a reasonable variety... More

My husband and I both love the hula burger. Can't complain about the bottomless fries either. Servers can be a little slow on refilling drinks or bringing us our condiments. Overall, come for the good burger. Price is decent to excuse the par/below-par service.

This location has consistently gotten OC Health Dept high marks and reviews for their food and cleanliness. We always find the food fairly consistent on quality. This time my Hula Burger was slightly greasier than normal but very good. The extra grease may have been because I added their "red onions," which I wouldn't do again. Hubby had the Hawaiian... More

Great atmosphere (although the music is a little too loud) and the food is really tasty. Cheerful obliging servers and the service is FAST. Managers are hands-on.

Located in a shopping center with parking to the rear (north side). Have been going for years, as hubby claims this as one of his 3 favorite places to eat. You can get your burger with wheat bun and order sweet potato fries instead of regular fries. They took my favorite off the menu (Cabo Loco Taco's - but I... More

Half price appetizers during Happy Hour in the bar--love it. Even better when chips and salsa used to be free but even at $1 they're some of the best in town. Taco choices, burger choices, salads that satisfy, love their passion iced tea. Plus the staff always make me feel like they're glad I came.
