Patient Server, Great food, Good prices

This was my first visit to an Islands Restaurant. I was very pleased. The server had a lot of patience as orders got changed at the last minute. She smiled all the way through it and was very friendly. She got everything right even with the confusion that we caused unintentionally. I enjoyed... read more

We went into this restaurant on Friday night and I have to say that it was one of the cleanest places that I have ever eaten at. We were seated right away and drink orders were taken. Our waitress was very friendly, I am sorry to say that I forgot her name as I was spending my time with my... More

6 of us went and had a nice boith. Servers switched on us in rhe middle of the dinner so it was confusing at first. We had a Kalalaua burger that was pretty good (split). Not a huge selection of beers though.

I for some reason I assume that this restaurant will changer. Unfortunately it hasn't yet and I am tired of waiting for acceptable service when I am the customer. In general I do not have a problem with Islands food.. However their management of the restaurant and the service staff is so terrible the servers are doomed. Give your money... More

This was a business lunch for six of us. The booth was helpful as we were able to all sit together. The waitress do a good job of explaining specials, and food came out quickly. She did a good job of refilling beverages.

islands makes my favorite hamburger and fries combo. The fact that they offer unlimited supply of fries is a bonus. This restaurant maintains the Islands standard of service, quality and cleanliness. If you haven't tried this chain, you should. If you're an old hand, you will be pleased.

Went with an out of town friend for a birthday lunch. Waiter was excellent and food was great. He brought me a birthday brownie with ice cream and no charge! Always enjoy the food here. Mainly hamburgers and chicken sandwiches now, but all good.

Leave the fancy duds at home and come dressed as you are to enjoy a great meal at a fantastic value price. Whether its coming back after a Little League game with a car full of kids, on the way home from work or just one of those nights when cooking isn't for you, this is the place for you.... More
