Large portions, good food

The service was great and the staff was super friendly! The food was pretty good and the french fries were delicious. My daughter had the cheeseburger and she devoured it, the bun was especially good. My Mom and I both had the Chicken Fettuccine and it actually had some flavor and it was a very... read more

Today we had lunch at the Island Cafe. This was our second visit and I have to say one reason we have not eaten here more often is that it "appears" to be busy all the time. After a poor meal yesterday we tried another restaurant and it was full so we walked nearby to the Island Cafe. We were... More

I have eaten breakfast here several times over my visits to Oak Harbor. The food is always good and the service is outstanding.

We had never heard of Island Cafe so we didn't know what to expect. The atmosphere is liker a diner. We watched the portions come out and were blown away by the sizes. You aren't going to go away hungry from the Island Cafe. Excellent food.

Large portions. Was an average. The biscuits and gravy was a bit bland and eggs were watery. Loved the hash browns.

We went to the Island Café for breakfast. We got a little carried away when ordering - everything sounded so good! I got the petite breakfast with a chocolate chip pancake on the side. My husband ordered a larger breakfast and a side of biscuits and gravy. It was delicious, but needless to say, it was too much. We'll try... More

This place is really tiny, but has good food. There is usually a line on the weekends, but they tend to get seated pretty quickly.

We were visiting the area and this place was always packed so we thought it must be good. We visited during an off-time so got seated right away. Server was friendly and took our order quickly. The restaurant was not crowded at this time but it really took forever for our food to finally come! I forget what my companions... More
