We ate at Banana Cabana 3 times during our week stay at IOP. It was a short walk from our condo and the food was good, reasonably priced and we had good service. The fried shrimp and mashed potatoes were very good and I thought they made a decent margarita!

I've been going to the Cabana on my IOP vacations for years. It's laid back and nothing fancy (white-table cloth types, stay away, you won't like it). The decor is simple and probably hasn't changed in 20 years. There is a bar and a handful of tables inside and a large outside seating area with large fans. There is a... More

While it is distractingly like a typical bar, this place has much more to offer. The food was great and relatively faithful on cost. You will not spend too much. The batter on the fried fish was light and the spices they put on the sausage and shrimp just WORKS.

Good food, large servings, ok drink specials and decent waitstaff. Could've been cooler inside considering the heat/humidity. Overall would recommend giving it a try.

with a name like 'banana cabana' we had high hopes for a laid back, casual beach night. upon arrival, we were pleasantly surprised with how perfectly 'beachy' the restaurant was-the outdoor seating was shaded with a great breeze! On the night that we were there, there was live music, which wouldve been a nice touch, had the dude (very talented... More

We ended up here out of default and were so thankful did!! We had a party of 15 and they were able to seat us immediately. Menu has a great variety and creative selections (it is much more extensive than what you see online). The food was fresh and plentiful - many meals are suitable for sharing! Price is very... More

Went to Isle of Palms Beach and asked some locals where a good place to eat lunch would be. They recommended Banana Cabana. Admittedly the place doesn't look like much from outside but is a quite pleasant environment once you go in. Our server Rick was both professional and entertainingly personable. The draught beer was cold and tasty but came... More

We were in town for only one night and we decided to have dinner here and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. We ordered the Macho Nachos and the shrimp quesadilla - both were amazing! We also enjoyed the drinks and the outdoor entertainment. In- fact we enjoyed our dinner so much we later ordered more food as take out.... More
