We stood at the hostess stand while 4 waitresses went by and said nothing. Ten minutes later in a non busy restaurant we were finally seated. We sat another 5 minutes and still had no service. We got up and left. I'm disappointed because I have been there twice and had great food and a great atmosphere.

Visited on two separate occasions...lunch and dinner. Their Crunchy Fish Sandwich was excellent and the whole Hogfish was not only tasty but very well presented. Topher, our server, was extremely attentive and made the experience an extremely positive one. This is a casual restaurant tucked away in the mangroves on the water...most tables are open air with a good breeze... More

Tuna nachos is amazing! Seafood is fresh and the menu is offers a lot of possibilities. Try the fried snapper, the French fries are really good! Great view on the water

Very nice setting, cool breeze, cold beer, great ocean view and great service. The seafood nachos were flavorful. They needed a little Hot Sauce. The Mahi crusted sandwich was out of this world. The portions were huge and the mahi tasted very fresh. The prices were OK.

Poor service with the lack of help. Seafood nachos were fine, nothing to write home about. Drinks were outrageously priced. OV is a much better place.

Service here was fast for our group of 9 and the food was excellent! We were done visiting for the week and decided to come back to eat a second time since it was so good! Definitely a place we would all go back to. Be sure to ask for Lil Mary and I highly recommend the Strawberry Daiquiri and... More

From top to bottom, the food is awful... Fish tacos, Lo Mein, mixed seafood cakes, ribs and sides, a variety of entrees, each of which couldn't have been worse! The coleslaw was disgusting and contained chunks of pineapple; the mixed vegetables were frozen pre-fab delivery origin. In the past, this was a reasonably reliable place — now it's little more...

I find your review very inappropriate especially since at no time do you mention contacting a manager. If you had that much to complain about why didn't you tell your server you wanted to speak to a manager. There is no way that that much could be wrong. First if you read the menu it says that our cole slaw... More

"Lil Mary" gave us great service and some fish food to feed all of the fish along the side of the grill. She also told us about some really cool locations to visit on our trip. The food was also fantastic!

This restaurant popular with both locals and tourists for a good reasons. The fish is fresh, well prepared and the portions are generous. The restaurant has an indoor that is air conditioned and an “outdoor” part that is like the indoor part minus the widows. Frequently in the evenings, they have live music in the outdoor part. We go to... More

We discovered the Island Grill. Chef "Nelson" is in the house. The ambience experienced here is wonderful. Lela our server provided us, amazing customer service. I definitely suggest the simple green salad,blue cheese dressing and a side of the broccoli (lightly streamed). A perfect chef "Nelson" prepared specialty. The restaurant is nice and clean too.

Thank Nanlouise
