“Much better than on first impression”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We were staying in a nearby motel that did no food or alcohol . We were able to walk to this typical all American restaurant which had two adjoining bar / restaurants and a separate outside " beach " bar staffed by a very interesting fellow . Outside it looks nothing but inside there are excellent views of the waterways and ocean. The menu offered a wide selection of food and a surprisingly diverse selection of wines. The quality of the food we had was better than average and the prices were fair but not cheap. The whole place had a lovely relaxed ambiance. We would go back .

“Could have been worse, could have been better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Our friends had hamburgers and said they were very good, but my husband had the ribeye steak sandwich which was very fatty. My fried fish sandwich was cooked well, but the fish had not been properly cut. The filet had stringy, un appetizing pieces throughout.
Although there were very few customers, the singer performing kept the children and some regulars entertained. She is very good.
I have tried this restaurant several times before and each time I hope it will be better, but continue to be disappointed.

“Good service and food, nice view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

The waitress I had was very friendly and the food came quickly. I got the mahi mahi sandwich and fries (the "crunchy catch") and the food was the typical price for the keys area (around $11). It was good and there was plenty of it. I was a little disappointed there was no where to go walk around behind the restaurant to get a better look at the view. I have eaten at some other places that you had that opportunity. All in all, it was a good visit and try at least once.

Great food and I was able to bring my 5lb Pomeranian in on the outside eating area. Service was good; Didn't really find any dislikes.

“Regular breakfast spot!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

So I just want to let visitors know that the Island Grill is Amazing!! They have not only a breath taking view of the water but they have great food and a friendly staff! The food is priced perfect for breakfast and tastes better than a lot of other breakfast places in Islamorada. If you haven't tried them, it's a must!! Yummy!!!!
