Tyrone & Pam wedding Renewal

We had an amazing time at the restaurant with our guest. The staff made sure our meals served on time. The shrimp& Grits, The chicken Marsala, and the JAMBALAYA was very good. The staff was very professional. We will definitely be back and this place would be our p, ace to eat. Tyrone & Pam

I was a part of a Wedding Party on April 4,2015 and this was my first time eating at The Isles resturant, and I tried the Shrimp & Grits and they were excellent. The service was excellent. Marissa was the host and group contact person she, and the staff were the best. Everything was in order and the wait was... More

Three of us were here on a Friday night in March. We were surprised there weren’t more people here as the food was good. We had a nice view of the water. There is also outside seating if it’s nice enough (it was not the night we went). The crab dip was excellent. It was served with garlic toast points.... More

The Isles has really improved to start the season! The menu has some changes but for the better! We tried the new Wahoo fish dip as an appetizer and we really enjoyed it. Our waitress was very helpful with the new menu options and very attentive. My husband had the shrimp and grits, which is always his favorite. I enjoyed... More

We own a place within walking distance of The Isles Restaurant at OIB. Great location and facility. Unfortunately, you never know what (or if) you will get to eat. We had one very good experience but all other dining experiences have been pretty terrible. The biggest problem is the utter lack of consistency with the food and the subpar quality... More

We wanted to thank you for everything you did for us and our friends and family, you all went above and beyond with your professionalism and kindness. You were there every step of the way throughout the year of planning and organizing for our big day. No task or question was too big to ask of and you were always... More

If you are looking for a beautiful area to get married on the coast, the Isles is the #1 destination. My husband and I got married here the last week in July and everything was amazing. Marnie and her team helped with all of the planning, recommended great vendors, and made the entire experience a beautiful and memorable day. Marnie... More

This is a VERY large restaurant, obviously catering to large events. The lunch menu was very small with options limited to sandwiches, salads and tacos. We sat outside and had a great view of the resort and the ocean. The Tiki Bar had a large menu, though we stuck to water and tea. As of September 2014 they had a... More
