Excellent burgers and shakes

This small restaurant was just around the corner from our apartment and it did exactly what you would want - served a wide range of excellent burgers and shakes. Well worth a visit if you fancy burgers for dinner!

Hard to believe and the good news - food was really really good. So all of you people in the long line at Shake Shack go over to... More

Sat outside and enjoyed our burgers. We all ordered different types of burgers. Mine was good. They don't serve coffee so they allow customers to buy outside and bring it in

Ive been to many burger joints... this one does NOT disappoint. Amazing when someone asks you how you like it cooked, like MEDIUM and then you actually get MEDIUM. Great service.

Not a very spacey restaurant, but the burgers were good, as well as the prices. Nothing luxurious but for a good quick lunch it's a good choice.

Island Burgers and Shakes managed to feed and satisfy my fussy family. Was impressed by the reviews on TripAdvisor and hoped it would live up to the claims - we were not disappointed! The restaurant, service, and the food were excellent. Even our fussy kids enjoyed their meals - clean plates and no complaints! For the size of the establishment... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
