2 of us went for lunch and had the Chicken Club Wrap $10.39 and Hawaiian burger $12.19. Both came with fries and were very good. Justin was our server and was helpful.

I had lunch with a friend here and while everything was good, it's still part of a chain so very predictable. The decor is always fun. The food was good but nothing really stuck out as outstanding.

Usual stop after church or a movie. You know what you are going to get. Selection is good and the food is fairly tasty. Service is always excellent. We never leave feeling like we wasted our money.

Island's is always consistent, exactly what I expected. The food, drinks and service always good. The fries delicious and hamburger juciy. When you're on the road it's always comforting to get what you expected to. Thanks Islands.

My son had a soccer tournament in Misson Viejo. We had a 3 hour break between games. We decided to have lunch at Islands. Food was excellent and the beer came in frosted mugs. Can not beat the free refills of soda.

Thank Steven W
