My husband and I went here back in May for breakfast. It was our table and two other tables being waited on. It took forever to get our food, then we had to beg for our second cup of coffee. While my husband was drinking out of his mug I noticed a huge lipstick stain on his cup. Gross! Today,... More

Have been here before and expected better than what we experienced. The seafood mini combo was tasteless. The flounder was tiny and tasteless. The shrimp was chewy and tasteless and the scallops were mushy and tasteless. Service was below average and our table was wobbly. Even the vegetables were overcooked and rubbery. Very disappointed. Will have to think twice about... More

This use to be our favorite place, flies were problem during our meal as well. They have excellent soup! There portions are huge. Good thing we called to check our reservations, because they lost it. It was for a big party too. That was upsetting.

We try to go here at least once a Summer when we are down. You should always try to make a reservation as it gets crowded. They used to have a big chalk board of specials, but in the last two years they did away with that. My kids love that their meals come with a Frisbee to take home.... More

I had the buffalo steak. Very gristly. Vegetables over done. Chowder too thick. Husband had fried seafood platter that had generous portions but was overlooked. Probably won't go back based on this meal and price of food. Server was very pleasant and offered to take steak back, but had waited so long for meal I didn't want to wait any... More

Had a pretty lousy meal last year, but have been going every year for a long time...we went back. My wife's blackened salmon was obviously frozen, lettuce was brown on the edges...she refused to send it back and just let it sit there. My brisket was fatty and the BBQ. Sauce was strange. My daughters chicken fingers were good. Service... More

There is both inside and outside seating and on a picture perfect night we had a seven PM table waiting for us.We were seated and it was a few minutes before any wait staff... More

It's tough to rate, as I think it deserves more than a 3, but not quite a 4. Had the lobster bisque which was tasty but lacked lobster. Had the mussels red, which tasted nice and fresh, but the sauce was a bit flat Wife had the stuffed flounder which was good I had the Elk Steak - ordered mid-rare... More

8 summers in OCNJ & we always eat at the Island Grill! Great food, excellent with kids. Only downside is parking. If you can, walk... Then you can walk off your great meal!
