Just got drive thru festivals and fries. So far the best tasting festivals I tried. Their fried plantains are pretty good too. French fries are tasty with a spice kick. Would like to try other items on the menu.

We loved the deal. For $20 you get prime rib and a huge baked potatoe. Can't wait for the remodel to take place. Too bad it's closing for a few months. Food was great. Wait staff was very friendly.

I will be arriving in the Keys in less than a week and have been exploring restaurants, which have an interesting menu and excellent reviews. I'm a bit confused with this Island Grill in Islamorada since the menu on their website is totally different than the one shown on TripAdvisor. Also, I could not find any prices listed on the website menu anywhere and don't understand how TripAdvisor got their prices. I also understand Island Grill serves breakfast, but have not seen any breakfast menu shown on their website or on the TripAdvisor site, so I probably would not go there for breakfast since this type of presentation leaves me with somewhat of a "red flag" feeling. I liked the menu I saw on the website, but if I was to go there with my family after reviewing their menu and everyone had a preference for lunch or dinner only to find that the menu was totally different on our arrival and not what we expected, I would probably prefer going elsewhere. I'm not a fan of false advertising whatsoever. Any help with this confusion would be much appreciated. Thanks.
