Location and contact

Irie's Island Food is an extra casual, very small restaurant serving lunch only. Hours of operation are seasonal in this vacation town. We feature fresh handmade food prepared by the chef/owner who is a graduate of the Culinary institute of America. Creative tacos on house made tortillas, Hawaiian, Asian, American/tropical, and international cuisine is offered at our establishment. We also make New Orleans style beignets from scratch, roast our own coffee, and even have creme brulee to go!

We like cheap eats but not at the expense of the taste of the food. Shrimp we had were nice sized, moist, hot and flavorful. Varied menu. Not much seating and parking very limited.

I don't believe there is one online. If you read other reviews on Iries on trip advisor that will give you some insight into the menu.
