Had the buffet, priced right, everything was hot and the BBQ Chicken was some of the best i have had. Get lost at Island Breeze Grill for lunch you won't be... More

I went back to the establishment. It has regressed since my last visit. I didn't try the jerk chicken or beef. I should have remained with the signature dishes. I tried the Escovitch Fish. It was described as lightly breaded and infused with lemon. It was a heavier fry crust and it was like eating a lemon infused with a... More

When visiting Island Breeze for the first time I was sadly disappointed. I went in and stood in the entry way waiting to be greeted or seated in some way. They were not busy, only 3 tables had diners, so you would expect that someone would be available to usher you in. I never saw a soul. Not a manager,... More

While the food is great here, both times it took over 50' to get our food. I know the food is cooked to order, so if you don't want to sit for over an hour, order ahead of time. They are great about having the food ready within 5' of your estimated arrival time. The jerk anything here is fantastic.... More

The food was great. We went for lunch and we're pleasantly surprised to get the buffet. I tried fish, jerk chicken, curry, meatloaf, rice and beans, potatoes, salad bar, and Red Stripe. Everything was excellent. Our 5 year old got the buffet and the kitchen also sent out chicken tenders for him,since they weren't on the buffet.

The new location is well done. It is attractive and comfortable. The food is outstanding. If you are in Elizabeth City or its environs, you must try out the tasty choices. The salad was a superb mix of lettuces that completed the very fresh and succulent fruits chosen by the culinary staff. It was complemented by the raspberry vinegar dressing.... More

The red snapper was very good. The jerk chicken wings were also a favorite. The service was good and prices were reasonable.... More

Best burger in Elizabeth City! Burger is spicy, moist, and served on a great bun. The sweet potato fries go great with the burger.

While I only got takeout, the jerk chicken dinner I ordered was phenomenal. The dinner is big enough for 2 to split with just enough spice to make it enjoyable but not too hot to make it miserable. Collards and mac and cheese are amazeballs.

It was my first time there. I found the decor to be tasteful and elegant. I was looking forward to trying the food since I had heard so much about it. The band out in the cold was Set to perform. Although I found it odd, the way you order is by checking off your choices on a piece of... More
