“Surf themed burger joint”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

I visited Islands at 5:30 PM on a Friday evening and had a short wait for a table for one (traveling solo). Had I shown up around 6:00 PM, the wait would have been longer.

I opted for the "Bluenami" burger with the Island fries. The burger was cooked medium well and seemed to be a bit dry but tasty with the bleu cheese sauce and crumbles. I also had the Islands handcrafted Golden Ale with the burger, and it was very nice.

The menu shows the calories for each entree, and there were few that were under 1,000 calories, so it's definitely not a place for someone on a diet.

The crowd is very family oriented and younger which can make for a somewhat loud environment.

Altogether, the meal with drink was around $16.

I would return for another visit.
