Nice patio, good service, salad was okay (it is a burger place)

The patio was nice and quiet, and somewhat secluded even though it's at an entrance to Manhattan Village mall. The service was very friendly, and quick. I had their Cobb salad, which was tasty, but I would have rather chopped it myself instead of having it being chopped randomly by the kitchen. The... read more

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!

You can always count on Islands to serve consistently good food in a casual setting. We had a family birthday celebration on May 6th for my 12 year old granddaughter. The large table by the front door was perfect for our party of 8. Our server Oscar was friendly and attentive. All orders came out perfect and were served in... More

Was in the area for a convention and rode the local shuttle service to the shopping area where Islands was located. Nice, clean restaurant with selection of burgers, tacos and salads. Very fast and friendly service. Waitress kept our drinks full and asked numerous times if everything was as we wanted or if there was anything else she could do... More

Islands has a great variety of food items, I tried one of their burgers and it was absolutely delicious! It was very busy, however, we received our food pretty fast after the waiter took our order, and received great service as well. Also, it's very convenient being in the mall shopping center.

The burgers are ok, the simpler ones are better. The wheat buns are much better than the white. Pass on the chicken sandwich, it was really salty. I would rate this as a 1. The burger is the only reason I gave Islands an over all rating of 3. The sweet potato fries are ok. It wasn't very crowded when... More

My husband & I usually go to Islands for lunch when shopping in the Mall. We usually split a BLT with avocado on a whole wheat bun with fries. We always order the best Tortilla soup in town & try to visit this restaurant at least twice a month.

This place has been in the same location, probably longer than any other store at the mall. Some Island's are inconsistent in there food quality but this place is has never been. Occasionally I've had warm french fries instead of hot. I come here often, 1-2 times a month and have never really had any big trouble. Friendly and courteous... More
