I almost didn't eat at the Island House. I went there one night and left after a few minutes when nobody acknowledged me. But I tried it again, and I'm glad I did. Most of the seating is outdoors, though there is a small no-frills dining room plus tables in the bar. If you want ambiance, sit outside on a... More

I gave the title "Best Food on the Island" because it has the best menu for dinner on the island while I still consider it average. We ate at the restaurant two nights. The first night we enjoyed small plates including three types of hummus, mussels and salad. All were good. We asked for the salad to be served first... More

We had dinner on a Monday night at the Island House Martini Bar. We got there at 5pm when they started serving dinner. Monday night was half price bottles of wine night. What a deal. We had a great bottle of wine and had stuffed mushrooms to start. I had their special Shawarma plate with lamb and wife had it... More

Love the Island House. The atmosphere is great with the nice patio space with both high top and low tables and a nice expansive bar. Lots of drink choices as well as outstanding food. This is the place to go if you're looking for a great meal and a little ambiance. We love it!

The only reason I didn't rate this place excellent is because it really isn't my style. The place was extremely classy but very welcoming to children! I'm not a martini person but man, were these good! So many different choices and some more exotic than others. They have anything for a simple dirty martini to peanut butter martini to raspberry...

Love the location, the food, champagne and the employees. The French onion soup was amazing. Stayed overnight. Will do it again. The room was inviting. I would upgrade the towels and add a few hooks. Shawn, Russ and Jon kept us entertained.

This is the place to go on Kelleys Island if you want a tasty meal beyond typical bar food. The stuffed dates appetizer is by far my favorite! The wines are good as are the mixed drinks. I seem to experience the restaurant being out of many dishes when I come. Not sure if that is poor planning or unexpected... More

Lunch on July 4 weekend. Kelley's Island wasn't as crowded as we thought it would be. Few people in the restaurant and almost all at the bar. We chose an outside table that was really nice. Waiter was very attentive, but brought our drinks a few at a time. Bartender seemed to have difficulty making the signature Martinis, as they... More

Sean (not sure of the spelling) was our server and was "lighting fast"! I also asked for 2 items not on the menu (bread and a shrimp salad) and they were able to accommodate. The wine selection was very good, but I would have liked to have had more seafood selections, (crab, scallops, shrimp). Island House is one of our... More

With not many good restaurants to choose from the Island house is the choice for a decent meal. Great mussels.
