Great Burgers & Brownie Dessert

I normally don't eat beef but I went here on my birthday for a splurge and am glad I did. Burgers are great (lots of varieties) and I highly recommend the endless fries as they are the best value and can be eaten as an appetizer and throughout your meal. Chocolate brownie dessert is also amazing.

This is a great spot to have a meal. The staff is SO friendly & helpful! The sandwich choices are amazing and just delicious. I just love the Hawaiian hamburger! I went online to place to-go orders (which is so easy). We ate there several times (& got to-go sandwiches) during our last visit to Marina del Rey. They have... More

Island's is a chain and I never thought I would give a chain 5 stars, but they have earned it. They have great burgers. Depending on which one you go to you may need to wait. For the most part they all look the same and the menu is the same at each location. The one on Washington is near... More

Great place to grab a salad or a burger. Quality is consistent and is the same as throughout the chain. Location is right on Washington.

We love their turkey burgers. Never had a bad meal here and been going to Islands for over 20 years. The staff is always friendly.

I had been going to this venue for many years. The food was always good, plenty of it and friendly staff. Worth the stop!

This chain hires a lot of very young staff. Most are affable, friendly, etc. But a couple have no idea how to treat adults, especially regulars who treat them nicely and are very generous tippers. Food ordered with sides often does not come out together. These servers think they should bring part of the order, "So it doesn't get cold."... More

Wanted a good burger that wasn't $15. These were $11, but at least come with fries! Lots of clever special burgers or make it however you want. Cooked well, pretty juicy, beef not organic, but no added hormones or antibiotics. Onion rings pretty good. Only bummer is no outdoor seating in this temperate spot.
