We went for pizza my sons, my mom and myself. Service was very friendly, food was great, prices OK. The ceasar salad is very tasteful.

Had one of the best duck salads I have ever had, (not that I have had many) It was one of the best meals we had on our trip to Canada in BC. Mains were on the specials Mexican menu which were also great. Nice atmosphere upstairs, few other customers but had a warm log cabin feel. Thanks, highly recommended.

The location of this restaurant is what go us to pull in, its very handy for travelers. We were seated quickly, and given a nice cold bottle of water ASAP. There is a good size menu, and the decisions are hard to chose from. But we both decided on a burger, I went for the Island and my spouse went... More

We stopped on our way to Banff. It was worth the stop. Both the service and food were excellent. We at inside so did not have a view.

We had lunch here and it was great. The deck was still open and it was sunny out so was nice. The meal arrived in good time and hot. We really enjoyed it. We would return if back in the area.

All reasonably priced food. Cocktails on offer were good but quite strong. Mexican special night offered great value on mains. Service was quick a friendly. Seemed a bit understaffed when the restaurant became busy but they handled it well. Would recommend an evening meal if you're staying in Golden. We went back for a second night!

While in Golden heading towards home we stopped overnight. We initially tried to eat at another restaurant but they were fully booked and they recommended we try the Island Restaurant instead. We were very pleased with our experience and glad we had opportunity to try it. The atmosphere is very warm and comfortable - a log building that has the... More

We had dinner here for work. The service was great, friendly, timely and explained any questions we had. My dinner was so good. I can pronounce what I had as the name was German but it was buffalo and roasted veggies and potatoes with a sour cream sauce on top. It was so good! Everyone said their dinners were great.... More

Visiting Golden on a little getaway and not being familiar with where to go, 'The Island' was recommended to us by a restaurant down the road we had hoped to visit. Very warm, atmosphere and fabulous food choices at reasonable rates (even for a vegetarian). Try the Mt Begbie beer from Revelstoke, my husbands new favourite. Karen, your smiles and... More

This restaurant is a nice place for a good dinner. Not to expensive and a friendly staff. Nice setting and absolutely not noisy, that is what I like.

Thank Jan G
