I've been eating at Islands for years. Usually the food and service are good, but I have noticed over the past six months that both food quality and service have greatly diminished. What they claim to be fish taco's was nothing more than a fried...More

Love their burgers. My side salad lettuce was a bit bad but the burger was great. They have wonderful sweet potato fries too. They were very accommodating to our group of 10 and had no problem that we sat there for hours talking.

When I lived in Orange County, Islands was one of my to-go places for delicious burgers. Over a decade on, I'm glad to see the local chain of casual restaurants is still keeping the promise. Once you've had pineapple on a burger you frankly can't...More

Went with kids, they enjoyed the burger and the music. I had tacos and not burgers, so maybe the not so great food experience got affected by that. Staff was like mechanical puppets. Everything they said came from some black book of curtesy and service....More

Fun lively restaurant chain, which offers a wide variety of food and drinks. Very kid friendly and a great place to eat with friends. Nice choices of burgers, tacos and other foods. I particularly like the tortilla soup, which my wife likes the fish tacos.

We eat here practically every Friday nite. It’s perfect for the children, but I do find it too noisy, between the people at the bar and tvdiners. It is a sports eatery so there are TVs all around featuruping various sports. The chocolate lava cake...More

We are originally from Los Angeles and had to go back many times for work as well as family. After a long day dealing with issues this WAS the place we found to unwind after all of the turmoil! We've always loved Islands. Usually went...More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
