Islands reminds me of Jimmy Buffets "Burger in Paradise". They have a wide array of burgers and sandwiches. The fries are fresh cut and very good, although a little salty. The burgers were very tasty. The decor is like a surfer hangout with TVs showing...More

Barbecue chicken salad without chicken? That is what my husband was served. The menu said chicken, tomatoes, red pepper, cabbage etc. The only thing on the plate was a lot of lettuce. The manager did fix it and took it off our bill but really...More
