Island Grill is simply our favorite place for a night out, and we live here. Varied and locally sourced menu. Ask your server about the preparation or the ingredients , and they will know! Family owned and operated. BYOB so stop off at Collier's right around the corner. I won't give you any recommended dishes, they have some steady items... More

On a recent visit to Cape May, our bed and breakfast had sample menus from multiple restaurants. We chose the Island Grill as they were a BYOB and supporters of local merchants for fish and farm produce. We were more than delighted with the menu choices and UNIQUE fare. Being vegan, I often have difficulty making appropriate choices...no so here!... More

The fine herbs salad with buttermilk dressing felt like I was eating right out of my own garden. Lobster mac and cheese was decadent and delicious. Husband got the whole fish- porgy fish- beautiful presentation, flavorful and delish. BYOB allows you to save some money by bringing your own wine, which is ideal. Service was top notch.

Myself and four ladies had an awesome dining experience. Carol could not be more welcoming and engaging. As noted by others, Josh is an awesome chef. Some ordered from the restaurant week menu and others from the regular. Everyone ordered something different and all thoroughly enjoyed dinner. Carol sat us on the porch which was lovely. The soft shell crab... More

I had the sea scallops that were caramelized and also cooked to perfection. The vegetable were grilled artichokes, grilled radishes, special beans. We were told... More

Wine pairing dinner with Turdo winery. Absolutely amazing food and presentation. Think Thomas Keller at French Laundry. The flavors and food choices are unusual but meld in the most unbelievable way. The ricotta gnocchi was the best I've ever had! Just thinking about the lobster tail with braised radicchio and traviso, with a sauce to die for with hazlenut sable... More

We ate here on a recent Friday night and really had a nice meal. Our waitress was friendly and attentive and went through the specials....also made some great recommendations which we took her up on. The mini-cornbread app with honey was really good. My wife had the sea bass and I had the sea scallops - and both offerings were... More

I think they want to impress with having locally grown, and that's good - but the entrees just weren't that great. Prices are high for ala carte.
