This is everything you'd expect from a casual Florida waterfront bar and restaurant. Relax and chill with good food and cold beer. Enjoy the view!

As newly locals we drive by and The Island is always busy. I've enjoyed a live band and drinks previously here and it was great, never stopped for lunch until today. The crab croquetts we're cold, fishy and under cooked. As a prior vegan I couldn't wait to eat a burger, until I found bone in the ground beef. The... More

This is a great place to go for lunch or dinner. You can relax enjoy the scenery. The menu has a lot of options for seafood or chicken steak or just a sandwich. The fish and cheese sandwich is so fresh. The menu also offers a great deal of appetizers that you can make a meal from. The adult drinks... More

Island Grill is becoming an all time favorite. Lunch time on the water comes very quickly, today was no exception. I love being able to dock the boat, and have a great lunch. The island burger was the choice, along with the best onion rings around. My friend had the tropical chicken, with onion rings. Everything was super. The service... More

Last time we were here, it was under different ownership and management. What a difference!! New owners refreshed the tables, put in adjustable "windows" rather than plastic roll downs, came up with a better menu and the attitude is great...and so is the view! Also, the drinks had alcohol rather than the watered down ones we had at the old... More

The restaurant is small and tucked in beside a gas station. If you miss the driveway your next turn around is across the Banana river in Cocoa Beach. Once you find it ask for the patio, it's right on the water and it comes with a floor show. Jumping fish. We saw a couple dozen during our lunch! Stick with... More

Went there with my wife. We are an interracial couple. We experienced the worst service I have ever had out at a restaurant. Its sad, because we loved the River Roost, and went there frequently. It was our first favorite spot in Florida. The food at the Island took forever and was poorly prepared as if they never wanted us... More
