We love Islanders!! Although we typically are there during "off" times so it's not crowded, the service is terrific (especially Alex). The food can't be beat and is a great value for the price. The shrimp basket is the best shrimp my husband has ever...More

We were spending the day on the island and every local that we asked recommended the Islander. The restaurant requires you climbing a pretty steep flight of stairs. The decor is casual beachy. It was lunch time in February therefore there were not many patrons....More

Solid food, very good staff and involved owners. The best place on the island to celebrate an anniversary or event. I refuse to spend good money and get a Styrofoam container/plate, no way!

We had dinner here this week, and the meal was decent, and service was good. We did feel like the menu was limited. I had the Artichoke and Crawfish pasta. It was a HUGE portion, half of which made a nice lunch the next day.

Choices are limited on the island, but Islanders has delicious food and good service! It also has a fun atmosphere and reasonable prices.The calamari was some of the best I've ever had!

We were in town for the long Thanksgiving weekend. We had dinner Friday evening and it was quite good. I had a combo plate (fried oysters and blackened shrimp) with fries and coleslaw. Food was hot and well cooked. We also visited on Saturday to...More

There was one on the entrance to the restaurant at the lower set of stairs. But this is a very relaxed atmosphere. If you walked in and just asked about the food there would be no foul.
