Nice place for unpretentious food

Good choice on menu for food and drinks. What you see is what you get and good service to boot! I think they've got the formula about right!

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. We wanted a decent meal that didn't break the bank and that's what we got. My son got a burger with chili on top. It came with endless fries. I had a salad which was pretty good too. The decor and menu format of the restaurant is very "Hawaiian" - hence, the name... More

I just ate the most outrageous burger, not to mention the crispest freshest French fries ever! Every mouthful of the specialty Waimea Burger was succulent, with a flavor profile that combined sweet and salty in, what you would expect from a food with Hawaiian flavors! When in Marina Del Ray be sure to enjoy the food here!

Burger was very good. Service was friendly, but a little stretched. Margarita on the rocks was 90% rocks. Felt like I was a bit taken advantage of.

Good enough burgers, fries, onion rings, chicken alternatives, some healthy choices, prepared nicely and served by friendly staff in a family friendly environment.

If you like Fridays and places like that, you will like this. This service is very good as was the food ( we had burgers). The portions were very large. This is fine for us...every few years.

we have been going to Islands since they first opened, while the one in Palm Desert is mediocre the MDR restaurant is like stepping into the past the burgers are juicy, the tacos fresh and full and the French fries crispy and delicious - if you want a good burger with good service this MDR outlet is terrific- and plenty...

I've been enjoying Islands for more than 15 years now and usually get one of their burgers (to share, they're quite large). Visited tonight to celebrate a family member's birthday and was excited to see some new menu options. I'm glad to see Islands experimenting and increasing the taco options and adding a Hoisin bowl (chicken or Mahi Mahi). You... More

We had a great dinner here just blocks from the beach. The veggie burger and the fish tacos were wonderful - and the best margarita in a long while. Good service too.

I haven't been to Islands at Marina Del Rey for over 12 years. I was expecting changes and a decline in the food quality. I got the exact opposite. It was packed, it was lively, the service was great and the flat screens showing extreme sports was mesmerizing. We had Mai Tais and Maverick burgers but, for a change, with... More
