Pleasant open dining room with nice water view. Food was OK likewise the service but nothing special. Lobster ravioli had very odd tasting spices. Would not recommend. Note that this restaurant applies a fee to use a credit card.... a pet peeve as this is...not the way the credit card system was designed to work. So unfortunately for servers...fee gets deducted from tip. Not likely to return or recommend.

Very professional staff. Beautiful open dining room overlooking the water. For an appetizer I had "baked" oysters with cocktail sauce and bacon, which was tasty, but would have liked them to be a bit more cooked. Steamed clams had a lot of herbs in the...broth which I did not like.More
We enjoyed our 44th anniversary dinner 4/3/21 Delicious clam bisque and celebrated the magnificent clams pasta!
So good we came back for Easter dinner 4/5/21 ,more sweet clams cooked simply with garlic, white wine and scrumptious lamb chops. Key lime pie, oh my!
Only suggestion(my...husband would disagree to mention it)
,the Christmas garland in the aged dining room was "off" for me.
A gem in Cedar Key.
We had dined at The Island Room before, and it was always good, but our dinner this time was outstanding! My wife ordered a special of the day, a combination of red snapper, shrimp and crab, and pronounced it excellent. I ordered the Seafood Cardinale...over Fettuccine - shrimp, scallops, and fettuccine - made in-house - a tomato basil cream sauce, and it too was excellent. We both had ordered the Island Room special salad as an appetizer, and it was of the same quality. Can't forget the dinner rolls either.
Our waitress was very attentive and friendly, our drinks were good, and the view is incomparable! The combination of setting, food and the service is one that is rarely found!
We have been vacationing in Cedar Key for ten years and have dined in virtually every restaurant on the island, and The Island Room is the best!More
I have dined at the Island Room at Cedar Cove many times though out many years. They provide consistently excellent food. The menu will provide something for everyone--seafood, fowl, beef or vegetarian. Please note that this is not a fast food place---although many people are...casually dressed. Expect it to take awhile, and enjoy your drink, your company, the view and your meal. Don't miss the deserts.More
Beautiful, clean inviting space. Tables well spaced for privacy and Covid safety. We had 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, and 2 desserts. All were excellent, delicious, beautiful and just the right temperature. Service was delightful with each person working stopping by at least once. Best experience...we’ve had on Cedar Key!!More
Suprisingly upscale, this small restaurant is tucked away in the Cedar Cove place, just east of the Cedar Key children's park. We ordered the Snapper with lobster confit and it was excellent. Service was a bit slow, but staff tried hard to keep up with...things. The staff were courteous and professional. We will definitely go to the Island Room again during a future visit.More
