The staff catered to our group's every request making our 40th High School Reunion a huge success! Everyone was courteous and helpful! The food was not only delicious but handsomely displayed. We had around 135 people in attendance and had plenty of room for dinner and dancing. Cannot say enough about the management and staff bent over backwards to make... More

Awesome food and service for our special event. The food was sooooo good; perfect temperature, beautifully displayed, and seasoned just right. The staff was spot-on at attending to our needs and making sure we were taken care of. Everyone that attended is still talking about how much they enjoyed it.

Lived here for 11+ years and have been to the Isles many times...each time I hope that things will improve. We only sit outside on the balcony because the view is amazing. We only eat appetizers and drink wine because they can never get it together for a real meal. Between chefs and wait staff, no one ever stays there... More

This is a unique place with great atmosphere. Eat indoors or out. Large parties, even weddings or a table for two. Menu can satisfy any & all even children, but they are a more expensive restaurant as I found out when I took the children with us the first time 4 years ago. Better for table for two. Always enjoy... More

I have already requested to be on the reservation list for Mother's Day for my wife and her family. I've had dinner at The Isles multiple times in the past few months and each time have had a great experience. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable of the menu; the food is mouth watering (most recently had the ribeye steak... More

What a great place to go! It started from the greeting of the hostess(es), to our friendly servers, and to top it off the food was amazing. I had the opportunity to sample everyone's food at the table: pasta, fish, and steak.... each were deliciously prepared and fresh. The environment is formal yet 'beachy'.

We visited because of some of the good things we had read about it. The bartender at our hotel also recommended it. I also reviewed the menu and really wanted to try the drunken muscles. Things started out questionably. The hostesses, wearing t-shirts and shorts, were giggling and talking and a young child was sitting up front eating some chicken... More

My husband and I were in OIB for the first time, for a night away. We were recommended The Isles by our resort's bartender and despite the varying reviews decided to give it a try. I wish we hadn't wasted our precious time. Absolutely NOT fine or even fresh dining which is unacceptable at an Oceanfront seafood and steak establishment... More
