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.

This was our biggest indulgence for our island trip. Dinner was crab cakes and for dessert we shared a peanut butter-chocolate martini. Everything was wonderful but it was a little more expensive than we had planned on but worth it and we will go back on our next trip again.

The staff is friendly and helpful. The food is excellent. My favorite is the jambalaya. How nice to sit outside to eat. Fun to go to the bar and sit with Brigid. She will keep you entertained!

A group of friends & I went to this restaurant & had a great time. I was reading the review titled "Don't go there ever" but decided to try it anyway. They said they told the staff about the dog on arrival & were told no, but yet said they waited 35-45 minutes for the waiter. Hmmmmm.... How do you... More

Heard all about it. Lovely evening, great outside atmosphere, nice menu. Drinks were so-so, including a $12 martini we had to send back. The linguini with clams was okay. The primavera linguini left much to be desired. Nice server. But it's all about the food, and our was just okay.

The wine list was good, but not the best. The food was very good. I got a filet, and others I was with got... More

If you're looking for something other than "bar food" on Kelley's Island, this is your place. It's a bit pricier than the other restaurants, but it's the only one we found with truly delicious, somewhat inventive food. The décor is more modern and the service is great. Highly recommend for a nice dinner and drinks.
