“Expensive but good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

As anything in the keys, the food was expensive. Around $20 a plate for dinner. But the food was excellent. Great service too.

“This is the place to eat!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Wonderful food, wonderful service, good drinks and stunning view!!! What more could you want!? Clean and well-appointed (even to placing fresh flowers in vases in the restrooms), with a varied large selection of creative dishes. The Gulf Oysters were SO fresh and sweet!!! The other persons in our party had sandwiches and salads and there were no disappointments to be seen.

“Scenic restaurant with good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

The deck is huge with the most fabulous sunsets. The service is slow but the food is fresh and fabulous. Order an appetizer and relax. Since the restaurant is popular, the wait time is extensive for the Keys but so worth the time. The fish dishes are much better than the meat choices. After all, this is the Keys. Enjoy.

“Pretty view and accessible by boat!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We had a great morning on the water and decided to dock at the Island Grill for lunch. The atmosphere and views are exceptionally beautiful and loved the accessibility of arriving by boat. Sadly, the service was poor. Our waitress wasn't friendly and took forever to get us waters, take our order, bring the bill etc. I would understand if it was packed but we were one of four tables at 1:30 eating lunch. I have read rave reviews with regard to the tuna nachos so I would give this place another try to taste this popular appetizer.

“Awesome resturant in Islamorada!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

The view was phenomenal! Live music was playing while we ate, which added to the awesome island feel! We sat on a ledge that overlooked the water, making this resturant even more awesome. I got a jerk chicken sandwich and fries. It was great! Very spicy and tasty. My husband got a seafood sandwich, which he also loved. I tried their signature alcoholic punch and it was great, too. I highly recccomend this resturant!
