I have eaten at Island View several times thru out the last 2 years and have enjoyed it greatly. The soups are the best any buffet offers. I especially enjoy the Chili and chowder. Only C&G's soups are better. The dessert bar has the greatest selections I've seen.

The food is excellent. Staff are the best. Our server Linda was excellent and thanks to the gal in the dessert area who introduced me to Pina Colada Gelato. Yum. Plus because we gambled for a while, the buffet for two was fully comped. Can't lose with list buffet.

The seating area is very nice and the service staff was great! There was a very large selection of food to choose from, the problem is that the food was not that great. You could tell the food had been prepared at least a day or two ahead of time. We showed up at exactly opening of lunch time as... More

It is a buffet after all so you have to choose wisely. Egg and Omelette station is always manned and cooked fresh to your taste. We like the variety including the Fried Green Tomatoes, Sticky Buns and selection of fruit. Done right it's a meal that will keep you comfortable all day. They also make a few special coffees on...

I see it's ranked #24 at this writing and that would be about right. The quality was spotty depending on your taste and luck. The green and Cesar salads were wilted. The fried fish was good, the beef was not. The ravioli was great, the chicken Parmesan was mushy. The garlic bread was hard as a board and tasteless but... More

We always eat here once or twice during the winter and went for lunch right before Christmas. It has always been wonderful but it was disappointing this time. The shrimp was not as firm as usual. Several areas needed to be re-stocked, especially the dessert area. It was quite empty. I had to ask if they were out of cookies.... More
