The island is located in a super nice log building with antique ski decor and lots of light. Huge patio when it's summer. Local ingredients, friendly staff, and reasonable prices. I always bring visitors here and they have never left disappointed. It's a must-visit when in Golden for breakfast lunch or dinner.

Loved it! Staff not overly friendly - but maybe it was a particularly busy day. A good menu. Mid range prices. Nice wine selection. Kids felt welcomed and lots of options for them as well as adults. Overall - a lovely evening! We'd return happily.

After a day on the Kicking Horse River white water rafting we kicked up our feet at the Island restaurant after our fun day. We saw the nice looking patio from the road and decided to stop in.

Went on in for a late lunch and sat on the upstairs balcony-which had a great view of the river flowing by. We had a sandwich and burger on the specials board- both were huge meals, satisfying and cheap at about $15 each. Beautiful interior of the restaurant too. Would return for an easy feed with a view.

Mondays and Tuesdays is Mexican days at the Island. The food was excellent. Service was great. The balcony offers a spectacular view of the Columbia River. Atmosphere is wonderful. Decor is old, antique theme. We loved it!

The Bison Burger with homemade fries was very delicious! I also had a beer from Revelstoke Brewing which went very well with my meal!

An ok restaurant at the waterside. We ate some burgers which where ok. Nothing special but tasty (I liked the caramelized onions). The fries where a little over baked and where weak.
