Beautiful view of the water, great staff! Drinks are a great way to cool off on the back patio overlooking the water :)

Very laid back atmosphere, delicious fried fish and potato fritters (do yourself a favor and try those). A gorgeous view and live music round up this local gem. Accessible by boat.

Very loud bar scene, lots of noise. Beautiful location with great views. Fish dip was average. Bar food is served. Service was extremely slow. Took a long time to get service, drinks and finally good.

Ambiance included waves crashing against the rocks, live music, guests arriving and departing by boat, and a whole lot of conversation and laughter. Throw in the fine and very affordable food + fast running and attentive service =... More

I was on a week vacation on Merritt Island and found myself at The Island Waterfront Bar & Grill almost everyday of the trip. Their fish dip, ahi tuna, and ceviche are amazing. Even one of the best quesadillas I've ever had (and I'm a native Texan). The owners are onsite and awesome if you get a chance to chat... More

They have live music on the weekends with incredible bands that fill the place up, plus an amazing waterfront view! No one can beat this place, it's my home away from home, and I... More

Waitress was slow and just plain awful. Went during the day and they weren't that busy. If I were you, I would travel to another place to eat....it's not going to cost you any less!
