We went to the Island Grill for dinner. The waiter was friendly and the food was very tasty, but the highlight was the atmosphere, which was beautiful. You have the opportunity to sit right on the wather, with a nice view on the sea. The prices where fair.

Wow! Great Water View! Food was terrible! One bathroom working, all patrons had to use the ladies room. Walk in look at the view and walk OUT!

I guess you never had a plumbing issue? I guess you visited in the couple of hours we were waiting for a plumber. If you'd like to discuss further what if anything was wrong with the food email me at islandgrillsouth@gmail.com I'd even welcome you for another visit and join us for two meals on the house. More

This is a great little place with excellent food and a kind and attentive staff. I was staying just down the road and ended up eating there three times during my three day trip. I tried a few other places and this was definitely the best all around experience. The Tuna Nachos are incredible and a full meal for one... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us. If your meal was great, how come only 3 stars. A little confused. This is off season so of course it is quiet. Kids are back at school. If you came to us in season or during the weekend you would have seen a madhouse and probably had to... More

We stopped in here on our way to Key West. The atmosphere is great. We had a table overlooking the water and the mangroves. It's open air, but you can choose to sit inside (with A/C). My wife had fish Tacos, which were very good, and I just had a slice of Key lime pie. It was delicious. Our waitress... More

The star is fading on Island Grill's longstanding reputation as a noteworthy seafood shack in the colorful Florida Keys. What was once a destination restaurant for a day trip from Miami is hardly worth stopping on your way to or from Key West. The food is tired and flavorless. The once delightfully crunchy panko crusty yellow tail fish fillets are... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Island Grill. So sorry you didn't enjoy your meal. It is so important to let your server know that you aren't happy with your meal and we would have made it right. Our food has never changed including the recipe for the cole slaw. Come join us again for an... More

I have NEVER witnessed a waitress argue with a customer. But, when the manager finally came to their table over an hour later he then began arguing with the customer. Pathetic!!! Not to mention the young man he was arguing with was a United States Marine. If the manager asks as inapproiate as the staff, it's no wonder that they... More

Read response for Mhosier since this is from the same party. Being a marine doesn't give you the right to be rude. More

We found the drinks at the bar lacking but the food excellent and keeps us coming back whether by car or boat. Nice setting and happy atmosphere.

A slightly hidden location, tucked below a bridge, but don`t miss the Island Grill. Attentive service (Thanks Tofer!), good food; what more can one ask on a Saturday night. A special shout out for the peel and eat shrimp, which were fresh and tasty, and the sweet potato fries!

Cold fries, dry and overlooked fish and uncold beer- did not live up to hype or expectations. Wasn't terrible just average. Staff was aging women with many tattoos- a little off putting.

I'm really sorry you didn't enjoy your fish. Our fish is fresh daily. I'm am totally unaware of any incident of dry fish. You should have just sent it back and we would have made you something different to your liking instead of taking to Trip Advisor. Suzy is a incredible server and has been with us since the inception... More
