“Steak. End of story.”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

I've heard about the steak here for months and finally went to Friday night dinner at Island View. What a cozy, cute, delicious place! The Guest House has gone green and the care that the owners give to the property and customers is top notch. The food is to die for and the view is magnificent. The honor system bar keeps everyone happy and stirs up a contagiously fun vibe. Dress fancy or casual, it doesn't matter here - it's all about conversation, ambiance, friends, and food! A cab from crown bay cost $6 a person, spent about $36 on dinner and it was all worth it. Our waitresses Faith and Max showed much care and were very attentive and good at explaining what to get :)

“Great service and views”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Very nice little restaurant at the top of the hill overlooking the harbor. We all partook of the honor bar and had a delicious meal of steak and shrimp and salad bar at the Island View Guesthouse Restaurant. Would highly recommend it

“A fun, relaxing hideaway”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

We visited Island View Guest House for the first time recently. Others said it was hard to find, but that is not the case. Just go north on 33 from Nisky Center (corner of 30 and 33), and when the road makes that first hairpin turn up and left, you bear right instead. Island View is about 200 feet ahead on the left.
This is a good place to go to dine with a view in a relaxed environment. The eating area overlooks Contant and the ocean, and as the sun goes down and the town lights up, it is very islandy. They have two seatings a night. I would recommend the earlier one if you want to watch the sun go down. As others have stated, the menu is simple. We had the filets, which are not always on the menu. They were very good, but not as great as others have raved, arriving a little overdone. There is also a simple salad bar, and a good selection of beer, wine and mixers at the honor bar. You keep a tally of your drinks, and give it to your waitperson at the end of the meal. It does allow you to fix your drinks exactly the way you want them. Prices are comparable to other island eateries (high compared to the states, but reasonable by island standards). We shared a dessert, which was also very good.
Note that the Island View is actually a guest house as well as a restaurant.
We will return.

“Excellent Steaks!”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

We have friends that live on the Island take us here for dinner on our first night in town. The food was amazing! Best filet I ever had! The view is breath taking at sunset! This is now one of our must visit restaurants while on the island! The prices are very reasonable for the quality of the steaks! I highly recommend you eat here!
