Island Grill

We stopped for dinner at Island Grill and we were all ( 6 of us ) pleasantly surprised. The service was good and the food arrived quickly.

Food was good but pricey for what you got. Drinks and deserts were pretty expensive. FOod was average to above average. Old-FLA atmosphere was excellent: waterfront, bar and open air dining. Nighly basically accoustic entertainment was OK.

Thank you for reviewing Island Grill. As you might realize we are in line with every restaurant for prices on drinks and food. The keys are expensive to live and work. It's the price though of us who live here pay to live in paradise. We hope you join us again in the future when you escape the cold of... More

What more is there to say. Good variety in menu. Be careful if you eat outside and bugs are attracted to you otherwise great view of the sunset not bad for key west prices either.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Island Grill. Glad you had the opportunity to eat on our beach area and enjoy our ribs and Key Lime Pie.

Had dinner here every night we were in Islamorada and enjoyed it very much. The Mahi-mahi reuben was a high point for sure. The key lime pie was great and a good size to share. Drinks were wet and cold and tasty. Lots of seating overlooking the water. Staff was helpful and fun.

We ate there twice during our stay in Islamorada, breakfast and lunch. The fish tacos were very good and the outdoor seating had a very nice view of the ocean/canal. Breakfast/service were good too. They even had the bar open so I could have Bailey's with my coffee...a good way to start the day.

The food was good, service friendly, and had an interesting atmosphere. You can eat inside and listen to the live music or eat outside on the beach under the trees and tikis. We chose to eat outside and enjoyed the view.

We got to Island Grill at about 6:30 on a Saturday night (in February) and had no trouble getting a seat. By the time we left, it was packed. Lots of families (two and three generations) and gatherings of friends. Nice choice of beer (we had a Blue Moon and a Buddha). My shrimp and grits were really fine. Lots... More

This is still a great place to eat and enjoy a drink. Tuna nachos are just outstanding. We like sitting both inside and out but Gina is our favorite bartender and she is usually inside. If you are boating, there is nice dockage alongside the restaurant.
