Pretty good service

The food is pretty good. I got a burger with unlimited fries. When they served it the fries were cold but the server didn't hesitate to replace them. The atmosphere is cheery.

Been to both MB and also Venice locations and both have great food and drinks. Slight negative is they always make you wait even when you can see empty tables, why do they do that every time ?? Overall a good experience and we will return!

Fairly typical general American food with a beachy twist. I had a veggie burger (any of the burgers can be done veggie or turkey at no extra cost) that was thick and tasty. They add their signature fried crisp onions. My husband had fish tacos and they gladly subbed veggies for the beans. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Only... More

We have used Islands for takeout to business lunches. The burgers are great, and the variety of food is huge. Our group has always enjoyed it.

Usually there a long waits, but you can get a pager and walk the mall a little to kill time and visit the Apple Store. Food is good and server is good as well.

We really appreciate Islands burgers, but this branch is the least organized and the food is tasteless when compared to other branches (in particular with the Marina del Rey one).

I go there because Summer, who works there makes the best lemon drop martinis in the southbay, and the food is always good with happy service. When we're hungry this is the place we go to. Ask for Summer, she's the coolest one there.

Islands is a once a weaker for me. We go and sit in the bar, or else you have to wait for a table, that's how busy it always is. There is seating outside as well. We love happy hour, and usually always order the French fries and a great burger! The tortilla soup is one of my favorites the... More

Delicious food. When I'm trying to watch my diet, I can never eat here! They have some good low cal options, but I just can't resist the onion rings and burgers!
