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.

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

Absoultely awful, the waitresses were extremely rude and left our drinks empty the whole meal. Took an hour for appetizers, when we asked for the manager he never came. And we had a extremely rude server yell at my husband because he asked to have our drinks filled for the 5th time. We ended up going up to the drink... More

Sorry you felt that way. From the time your table arrived not only were you rude to our entire staff including our host and servers you obviously don't know how to behave in a restaurant. You don't walk into a restaurant with 10-12 people without making a reservation and expect immediate service. Second you absolutely didn't wait an hour for... More

This place is just great. The location is perfect, the food is fresh and the staff is so nice. Especially if they are from where you grow up. The fish tacos are the bomb. Fresh is just enough to make you full. Prices are right on too. All four of us enjoyed every bite. Highly recommend this spot.
