Fairly good

I took advantage of the lunch special and had a burger, which was OK, but certainly not inspired. Many nearby restaurants have better ones. Service was pleasant and good, and there was a decent selection of draft beers. I had to be at the mall, so it was a good, quick choice, but I wouldn't go out... read more

Islands had stood the test of time, until 2015. They finally fell victim to profiteering and made changes to their food menu which may have gone unnoticed by some but definitely not to others. You may or may not experience the changes as significant depending on what you order and how well acquainted you were with it. The changes have... More

I stooped in for lunch on a Saturday. It was crowded so I went to the bar. Service was good. I ordered a burger, which is what they claim is their specialty. It was normal size, not impressive, but it was good. The fries that came with it were old and cold. I can't say much more because of my... More

This is not really the best place to come for a burger. Actually, I still prefer In N Out. Service was also really slow. I would only return as a last resort.

Service is always slow here! Might be a great place to hang out while shopping, since I said service slow, so you can tag team eat and shop .... Expect good food but service ////

Nothing has changed with the interior at all in the 15 years I have gone there. Frankly it is a time warp to go in there. The menu has expanded a little but it is still a burger place. None the less It is clean, busy and VERY LOUD. Not a place for young children or conversation, There is nowhere... More

I am sitting here waiting for a table when I can see 10 free ready for people! You for some reason have to squeeze next to the door in the way of people trying to leave?????? The food is good but the whole waiting thing really puts us off coming here any longer!

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!
