We have visited the Island Room twice and enjoyed them each time! The food was outstanding as was the service. We always make it a point to have a meal here when visiting Cedar Key.

Appropriate appointed dining room. efficient and cordial wait-staff and a competent chef. We enjoyed herbed shrimp with pasta and a hearts of palm salad. Priced moderately. Acoustics need work -- the New Yorkers at the next table needed muffling.

If you want fine dining in Cedar Key, Florida, then the Island Room is the place to go. Excellent, food, service, and views make dinner at the Island Room a memorable experience. The fish, duck, and other dishes I have had here were all outstanding. The location is a bit off the beaten path but well worth seeking out. This... More

Ok....out of clams by 6pm which influenced a number of dishes? Service functional with a distinct blow off, not warm nor responsive, but most importantly food was quite uninspired. Rolls came out so salty, they seemed like pretzels...waiter claimed it was 'sour dough'(not sure how that was a disclaimer) but 'sour' dough has a distinct flavor (like sour) which is... More

The service and the food were incredible - truly a 5 * fine dining experience. Pasta dishes are amazing and the special pumpkin Cheesecake dessert was amazing! So glad we chose this place. It is really spectacular.

Went there for my birthday. Nice wait staff. Honestly the food is outstanding. We left immediately after eating and did not have dessert as planned because there was a table of five middle age adults of three women and two men (so they knew better) that were SO loud, obnoxious and chatting about personal things with many curse words thrown...

I visit Cedar Key periodically and usually make the Island Room one of my stops because of its pleasant atmosphere and fine dining options. Perhaps this last visit was on the chef's day off, because the two special entrees my companion and I tried were disappointing, heavy handed and swimming in grease (panko crusted rockfish and slow cooked beef brisket)....

Looking at all the recent reviews, we thought this might be a good dinner. What a disappointment. I ordered the linguine with chicken and julliened vegetables in olive oil with garlic. I got carrots and onions sauteed in olive oil. Not a bit of garlic seen nor tasted, and so much oregano on the chicken it was inedible. My husband... More

Ate breakfast lunch and 2 dinners there. The food is the best. Not just the everything fried food. Each meal looks like it was made just for you. Plus, homemade pasta.

From the yummy crab bisque (bring your own Old Bay) to the great selection of main courses, this is one of the best meals in Cedar Key. Even if you are only in the mood for a salad, theirs is always fresh and delicious. The Island Room also has the best service staff of most restaurants we've ever been to.... More
