Had our wedding luncheon here and let me just saying dealing with Carol for a year was amazing. My Italian family loved the food! Kelsey and Steven were so attentive and amazing with attending to our needs. This is the place we will always come to when we come to Cape May. This place is truly a gem! Thank you... More

Especially when i had to change my litte guy after being on the hot beach during the wedding. everything was fantastic and i think the extra attention and service they provided really made her even more happy and special.

Sorry...but I was disappointed with the change to this restaurant. Each summer my husband and I have dined here and this year we called and made a reservation. When we arrived, gone was the "island" theme and menu! That is the name of the place, right? We were told that the new chef changed the menu which now only contains... More

Although menu is limited, food is spectacular. We had an heirloom tomato salad - farm fresh and delish, the scallops - excellent, and the branzino whole fish, also excellent. It's BYOB so that's clearly another plus. Make a reservation and enjoy delicious farm fresh vegetables and daily catch. (There are meat choices as well)

Around mid August on vacation in cape may we decided to visit this locale. I had the crab cake & my son, who is from NY, had the scallops. The food was really good and a surprise because mostly in this town I have found by experience the food not worth bragging about, with the prices being way too high.... More

I have been to this restaurant every year for at least the past eight years. This year is, hands down, the best yet. I also venture to say that this is the best meal that I have ever had in Cape May. (And I've been to all of the big-name staples.) The chef does an outstanding job to showcase the... More

It did! I've been coming to the Island Grill for years, and I've always loved their friendly service, fun atmosphere, and incredible food. But when I came back to the grill a few weeks ago, I was really blown away. Nowhere in Cape May (or any of the surrounding shore towns, really) will you find a restaurant of this caliber:... More

The family has eaten here a number of times and always enjoyed the meal and atmosphere. Unfortunately, for us, the latest change in chef and menu resulted in a disappointing meal and experience. The good - new decor is attractive, Caesar salad was excellent. 3 of 4 entrees were very good (branzino special, scallops, swordfish), staff is friendly, Not so... More

We've been wanting to try the Island Grill for some time and finally did. After going last night, we wish we hadn't waited so long! Located directly behind Collier's liquor store on Mansion Street, it has its own free parking. The setting is quiet and civilized, the service is prompt, helpful and friendly, and the food is mouth watering. I... More

I am trying to find something to complain about but I cant. All of our food was excellent. Interesting flavors with fresh classic ingredients. Everything was cooked to perfection. It is a family owned and run restaurant and it certainly feels like it...the decor isn't anything special...but again...all of that is not a bad thing. It's a BYO, so that... More
