Great food and excellent service

Island Grill is your typical beach town seafood restaurant – wood table and chairs, no frills décor, big glass tank up front - that serves excellent fresh fish, seafood and other staples like steaks and salads.

Went to Island Grill with a party of 12. The menu is very diverse, the food was well prepared, tasty and the service was very good. The prices are reasonable given its a beach town and we dined al fresco which was nice. Everyone in my party enjoyed the Island Grill.

There was a line this Saturday morning. It didn't seem to matter to the staff on duty. Every server and staff member who passed did so without making any eye contact. One was stopped and asked what to do, if there were a list. "She'll be with you." was the off-handed, I'm too busy to talk to a potential guest... More

Steak, NY strip, not cooked to order, ordered medium, came out looking like well done tuna steak, no time to send it back but I would avoid this place with all the other competition to try.

With all of the years at the shore, this is the first time at the Island Grille. This is a family-type restaurant (lots of kids/noise, even a few flies). It's also ultra casual. Food is about average as is the wait service. The King ordered the full rack of ribs which were about average. The Queen ordered the Bronzino requesting,... More

This was our second visit and we found the seafood to be fresh - fluke. Enjoyed the crab cakes and lobster macaroni, good appetizers (salty dog fries and Jersey devil), but disappointed with Baja fish tacos.

We arrived at approximately 7pm on a Wednesday night. There were open tables both outside and inside. The hostess who we met inside asked if we wanted in or out and we said outside, please. She was somewhat brusque in directing us to our table and in telling my daughter she needed to remove her water bottle from the table... More
