Six friends met there for breakfast and everyone commented on how good the meal was. reasonable price and nice atmosphere. Outdoor seating. No decaf coffee. We'll definately go back on our next trip to the island.

Loved this place for there freshness . I had black eye pea hummus and pita and tomato basil soup . Husband had a bison burger ( he loved it ) . Great place to eat outdoors with a great patio . It was very warm so we choose to eat inside !

Esp for a small island, food was very good. We'll be back. Our service was nice, very apologic (even though we did not complain.) However it was very easy to see the place was a complete cluster! People seated next to us, ordered pre dinner drinks, then asked to give up there seats. Yup, that was just the start. Another... More

We happened upon this place in search of somewhere to eat breakfast, and what a gem! They have a very small menu, focusing on locally-sourced seasonal ingredients. We had the "quiche of the day" (mine veggie, husband's meaty), and it was divine. Each came with a small tossed salad and fresh fruit with yogurt. The coffee was excellent too. Servers... More

We visit friends once a year and always come here for dinner. Pork chop dinner is very good and the bison burger. They also have there own homemade ice cream which is delicious! Good variety of brews to choose from and they have an indoor or outdoor bar.

We've been to Kelley's Island 4 of the last 6 summers and we've always saved one evening to dine at The Island House. We were not disappointed this year. We were promptly seated in the area of our choice. Our server, Billy, was a perfect, attentive, gentleman. My wife had the fried chicken salad and was quite pleased with it.... More

The food and drinks were very good! Loved the comfy outdoor chairs and couches! The owner was pleasant and helpful and so were the servers. Seating was inviting and we ended up meeting three new couoles who sat and drank and chatted for awhile. Would recommend this as one of the restuants to definitely check out during your stay!

We've been Kelleys Island regulars for years and over the years the ownership and menus have changed at some of the various establishments, particularly so at Island House. The Island House used to be one of our favorites (particularly back in the day when it was a true martini bar, with dozens of them on the menu). And then there... More

Begrudgingly give Island House 3 stars,,, should probably be only 2. The food is very good, all made from scratch in house. We had shrimp, pork belly, fish taco's, waffles, biscuits and gravy, and ordered the hash (more on this later). All of the food was very good, which makes it great for Kelleys Island. The service is slow at... More

We enjoyed every meal at the Island house. The owners lean their menu more towards fine, gourmet dining and make their own ice cream for desert.
