So many of these types of restaurants lately. This place is hawaiian style using rice, meat and soy/teriyaki sauce in bowls, plates or platters. Chicken was fatty but prices were reasonable. Staff had an all business attitude and not friendly at all.

Go and u won't be sorry. Reasonable prices, great food. I hope they never go out of business. There salad and beef with rice plate is my favorite. My family eats here at least once a week and we never get sick of it.

If you like Hawaiian/Japanese food you'll love this place! Lots of options; rice bowls, plates, low carb meals, spam musubi, loco moco....all yummy, fresh & reasonable prices! You order food at the counter & they bring it to you. Staff is very nice & they always are smiling....enjoy!

We love Island Grill's and their Chicken Bowls! You get a ton of great food for just about pocket change. Go there today!

You CANNOT go wrong ordering ANYTHING on the menu. From the noodle soup to the salmon special and everything in between the taste cannot be best. You can also get brown rice substituted for white rice. Top it all off with a shaved ice! AloHA!

The food is quite tasty and the portions are large.You have to remember that the wait staff are not trained waitresses or waiters. So go with the flow, and relax, your food will come out in plenty time. Just don't go there too close to closing or you might get the "stink eye' from the manager.

I hate to even give a review because this place get's more and more crowded every time I go. Who can blame them. Best Chicken bowls around. Super reasonably priced. Treat yourself and get a shaved ice too.

Affordable, great tasting food.... I have been eating at the Island Grill for more than 10 years and no restaurant of similar cuisine can compare. The #8 with teriyaki chicken, rice, and Chinese Chicken Salad is something I regularly drive 50 miles one-way for. I used to live nearby but now I'm a bit further and sometimes I just have... More

This establishment has very simple indoor seating. The pictures on the wall do not do the dishes justice. The chinese chicken salad has shredded chicken, plenty of it, and the dressing is very light and very tasty.
