The Restaurant was excellent starting with real southern hospitality, good service and ending with fantastic Key Lime Pie. The real star however was the Shrimp and Grits with Bacon Gravy!!! It is worth a special trip just for this dish. We ate at the other restaurants in the village some higher rated but none came even close to our dinner... More

This is one of the best kept secrets on the island. The Neptune Lounge which is in the back of the hotel has one of best Cheese Burgers you will ever have!

I recently ordered lamb chops at the Island Hotel because I had them last winter and loved them. I heard they had some in and made sure they saved me some for the next day. I was not disappointed. They were cooked perfectly and were huge so I split the 2 with my friend. It was served with a nice... More

I recently at here and I had mixed feelings about my experience. The service was excellent but the food was a little over priced and overrated. The escargot was decent, the French vinaigrette was wonderful, the crab chowder had a very good flavor but I hardly had any crab. I opted for the 4oz filet with seafood Choice. I chose... More

I was a guest at the Island Hotel and had breakfast each morning. Everything was amazing, even the coffee. The biscuits were freshly made and when you broke them open they released steam and the butter just melted right in. The bacon was absolutely perfect. My room was just above the dining room and each night I had the most... More

The Island Hotel is an excellent choice for dinner. The food and service is excellent and the Island Hotel is one of the oldest structures in Cedar Key and a historic landmark. Dining here is always a great experience.

This place is extraordinary! The service was impeccable and the food was perfect. This was a return trip for us - we were hoping it was going to be as good as the last time and it was! The pasta dishes are wonderful and the dessert was heavenly - they had a Pumpkin Cheesecake that was one of the top... More

The bar is good along with the great food. The dining room is fine dining, and serves very fancy delicious meals. There is a cafe behind the bar area that is more informal. They serve a variety of sandwiches, soup and you can order from the dining room menu. The and waiters and waitresses are very friendly and the hotel... More

We stayed in the Island Hotel for a business trip. We ate in the dining room for breakfast and supper. Breakfast was delightful! Fresh squeezed juice, and perfect temperature hot tea to start. The made-there quiche was to die for. Bacon cooked the way we liked it. A great way to start the day. Supper was superb! I got the... More

We spent 3 nights in Cedar Key last weekend and this was by far the best meal we had. The escargot were simply prepared but cooked and flavored perfectly. Fresh local clams over angel hair pasta, also simply prepared but done exactly right. Lamb chops were seasoned very uniquely with an awesome ginger mint sauce. Service was excellent and atmosphere...
