Excellent Food in an Unpretentious Location

I was a little concerned when I pulled into the small strip mall parking lot. All the business names had Island in them; the pizza joint, the barber shop, etc. The Island Cafe was on one end of the strip and included a small steel railing to the small porch and door. However, when you enter, it... read more

The Island Café is wonderful. On a chilly night it was warm and comfortable. We had the Red Snapper special which was served to perfection. Our guests had the Rack of Lamb which they said was the best ever. Service was quick without being rushed. Our server Gene was attentive and knowledgeable. Simply a good time!

This is the second visit so far for a birthday dinner this season, and are planning one more before April. Great food, and great service. Daily specials are very good, and reasonably priced. Been here many times over the years. Never a complaint. Friendly, cosy, and quiet. Jambalaya is the best ever!!!

We visited on a Sunday evening to avoid the seasonal crowds. We still were unable to get a reservation until 7:30 P.M. Although we were promptly seated, the wait staff seemed to be fully engaged with the half of the tables that were still occupied. A short time later, our waiter took our orders and provided rolls and butter. Our... More

I think it strange in this city that these great restaurants only serve wine and beer. We were 7 on a Saturday evening for dinner. Upon arriving I realized I could not have a cocktail before dinner. I can't drink wine and who would want beer with the elegant menu offered by this restaurant. At any rate two of us... More

We went here on the recommendation of a family member, who is a part-time local. Island Cafe is one of his favorite restaurants on Marco. IThe reviews seem to be very good, so I was looking forward to the evening. In my opinion this place is quite overrated, but I would guess that reviews reflect generational preferences. I found the... More
