Hard to get to but worth the trip

My husband got the ribs and he was a bit disappointed, but loved my shrimp and grits, which had tomatoes in it so it was like eating a pizza, too! Decent pour of wine. Friendly staff - excellent service. It was 7:30 when we got there and we were surprised that it wasn't busier. We drove by the... read more

We stopped for lunch on the way back from Key West. They have nice outdoor seating on the water. The service was good, The food was average and the portions were large. I ordered a half slab of barbecued ribs. I was expectingn a wonderful sauce as the menu said it was suppose to be a bourbon, mango barbecue sauce.... More

Big, plump juicy wings - cooked exactly how I wanted them - well done without being dry. Service at the inside bar was great, by a true professional waitress - genuine and quick without a lot of hassle. Have also stopped in here for lunch, amazing Cobb salad - almost too much to eat, very fresh - and a great... More

We enjoyed our meal - our first in Islamorada - on a rather chilly night. Sat outside and listened to lovely music. Food was good. The shrimp sauce was a bit different - not our favorite. Good service.

Just ate lunch there. The special is tuna nachos. I wanted a few more nachos with the meal and was charged $4.00 for three small nachos and $4.00 for each domestic draft beers. As a local for over 30 years it's my last visit and local recommendations.

We're in the Keys often and ALWAYS stop at Island Grill. It's tucked away under the bridge so we find that it's often overlooked by passing traffic and we can usually get a seat. Very nice, laid-back atmosphere. They often have live music which is usually pretty mellow. It's got a cool little dock which allows you to come by... More

The food was good but a little too pricey. I ordered a Bailys for after dinner to go with my coffee. They charged $9.50 put it in a shot glass..having bartended for 23 years, if you're going to charge a cordial price, give a healthier portion and put it in a cordial glass. Personally, I wouldn't go back.We ate on... More
