Very nice place for a drink and relax. Staff was very tentative and good music. I didn't eat anything there so can't review food but from what I seen it looked delicious

My wife and I both went here for dinner, the food was excellent. Our waitress was great too, the only issue was the fact it was slammed and it appeared they only had two waitresses for the whole restaurant. Overall a great atmosphere and great food, but the lack of staff could be an issue on a weekend for sure.

If you are looking for local Lake Erie seafood fare you may not find it here, but if you are open to a nice variety of offerings, well prepared and served by helpful wait staff you should give IH a try. Good cocktails, excellent wines and very nice meals. Looking for a dinner salad? Consider one of the Paleo Bowl... More

Food was good, but they were out of one or two dishes so my friend had to order something else. I am a simple person, so I like simple food. If you are into restaurants with unusual and creative meals, this is your place!

There aren't many places to get a good cocktail on Kelley's island, so finding a talented bartender behind the outside bar at the Island House made us really happy. I cannot remember his name, but he made a great strawberry rhubarb shrub that he paired with gin in a creative riff on a Tom Collins. For $5 at happy hour,... More

Came here with a group of six. Waited a long time for service. Two of us ordered cocktails only to watch the bartenders (2 of them!) stand and chat. It was about 20 minutes from ordering until they finally made them. At least the waiter delivered them right away and they both were good. However, the waiter never came back... More

Cute restaurant about a block up Division Street, great views of the downtown and lakefront. I had the bison burger and my wife had the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich. Both were wonderful. Excellent coffee as well.

Had a great lunch! Bison burger with a scrumptious noodle side dish. Menu was very nice and more on a healthy approach to dining. Thanks to the new managers, this is a hit and ur staff was very very good.
