So relaxing to have the three kids play while we sat at table. What I had was delicious. Not a big menu though but would go back for that chicken sandwich with Swiss, bacon, and mushrooms!

Lovely shady patio away from the hustle and bustle of the island. Our dog was able to be with us and the food was excellent. A bloody Mary with a slice of awesome bacon, an Olive and a tiny pickle is a must if you like Bloody Mary's. White fish and chips was my selection and it was great.!

Good menu for adults and kids. This little gem is tucked behind the hotel. Nice to eat outside away from main street. Very relaxing.

Went here with a toddler and a baby plus my MIL and husband. We loved it. My son could run around in their little lawn. The food was excellent and well priced for an island. Wait staff was very sweet and quick. They had corn hole set up to play and nice lawn chairs out so you could enjoy some... More

We were hesitant to leave lake view options aside for this outdoor restaurant behind the Island House Hotel, but it was the perfect choice. Their lovely shaded patio area was so peaceful an relaxing - a bit away from the fray, quiet and serene. Our meals were excellent and a refreshing change from the pub grub we had found to... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at this reasonably priced restaurant at the back of the Island Hotel. First of all, in the height of the tourist season, it is a pleasure to find a quiet outdoor restaurant away from the bustle of Main Street. Second, the service is warm and attentive. Finally, we loved the salmon-spinach-bacon-fried egg- remoulade on a... More

This bar is located up bile hind the Island House. It's a steep walk up the hill but totally worth the hike. Our waitress, Kelly, was very accommodating to our large, chaotic group. We ordered drinks and sandwiches and all were brought out together. The BLT was excellent. Another person had the Sicilian Steak sandwich (like a prime rib dip)... More

We stopped in for supper at the Ice House. The food was OK Our waiter seemed to be the manager, and he was more interested in solving a billing problem with his waitresses than making sure his customers were satisfied. I felt sorry for the customers of the waitresses he was dealing with, since he kept them several minutes trying... More

Food. Service. Atmosphere. All FABULOUS! We had a party of 11 and 3 dogs. We were treated great and had a really tasty lunch after biking around the whole island. Will definitely go back, and even thinking of staying at the hotel next time.
