We dined at the Island Grille for the first time and were quite pleased with the quality of our meal and service. The Maryland crab cake duo was exceptional and the seafood trio (sea scallops, crab and shrimp in cream sauce over linguini) was very good. Reservations are recommended.

After a 2 and a half year hiatus (been traveling) I went back to the Island Grille today for dinner. I chose today because it's Tuesday and on Mondays and Tuesdays, it's buy one entree, get one free… 2 can eat for the price of one. Wife had the tuna and I had the snapper. Both were cooked to perfection... More

I recommend getting reservations as it is difficult to get in here. I can see why! Food is amazing. Atmosphere is very nice. Small restaurant but great feel.

Went where for NYE dinner. We had reservations (highly recommend anytime) and the wait was only a few minutes. The seating is very close and somewhat noisy but the food was really good and the service was excellent..All in all we would eat where again. They do have BOGO options but check the menu..

I haven't reviewed IG for over a year it seems to I think it's time. Mike and I eat here several times a year and our most recent visit was last weekend. It was a promptu visit so we didn't have reservations (strongly recommend) so we sat at the bar and Ken took great care of us. We had drinks... More

Description
The Island Grille is a small restaurant on Atlantic Beach. We specialize in keeping our menu fresh and try to accommodate both those with a thirst for fresh seafood and those who would rather try a traditional dish with a new perspective. Although we would love to accommodate everyone who walks in our door reservations are recommended and the restaurant is LIVELY! You may be seated close to other guests, you may get visits from all of our staff throughout the night as they graze your table.. If you are looking for a great meal in a fun and fearless environment check us out on Monday or Tuesday during BOGO entree night. If you like things a little more laid back I recommend reservations any other day! But, I always recommend them!!!

See you soon at The Island Grille!
