We came here for a late dinner after landing at LAX- was just one or two exists south on the 405, and a better option than eating at the airport or fast food places on Sepulveda. This is part of a chain that has decent food- maybe a step above Friday's or others like that. There are some more upscale... More

I had the cheeseburger on wheat with applewood bacon and fries. It was quite good. Service was exceptional. Noise level was a little loud but on the whole a great experience. I'd come back again.

We went to dinner at 6 and they server apps and drinks at happy hour prices if you sit at the bar, until 7pm. We had the Hawaiian Sliders, fries, and nachos. Sliders and nachos were great but the fries were just ok. We had mojitos and margaritas, both great! Decent service and loud atmosphere.

A decent but somewhat greasy burger. Bland onion rings. Syrupy sweet shake. And the tables and seats should be cleaned a bit better. No need for me to return. Not bad. Just not all that good, either.

I took advantage of the lunch special and had a burger, which was OK, but certainly not inspired. Many nearby restaurants have better ones. Service was pleasant and good, and there was a decent selection of draft beers. I had to be at the mall, so it was a good, quick choice, but I wouldn't go out of my way... More

Islands had stood the test of time, until 2015. They finally fell victim to profiteering and made changes to their food menu which may have gone unnoticed by some but definitely not to others. You may or may not experience the changes as significant depending on what you order and how well acquainted you were with it. The changes have... More

I stooped in for lunch on a Saturday. It was crowded so I went to the bar. Service was good. I ordered a burger, which is what they claim is their specialty. It was normal size, not impressive, but it was good. The fries that came with it were old and cold. I can't say much more because of my... More
