“Awesome girls night out”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

I made reservations for this place on their website in advance and my 2 girlfriends and I dressed up and enjoyed an evening here on the patio in September. It was a perfect little spot. The service was great and the food was delicious. We really enjoyed it and recommend anyone stopping in Golden eat here! The staff are very friendly.

“Love the location”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Such a beautiful spot, and gorgeous decor. The service was friendly and quite attentive to our large group of hockey kids and parents. The food was not quite 5 star, but a great selection, enough to make everyone happy.

“Slow”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

Went to try the island after a drive up from Calgary and it was interesting. Actually in all fairness it was valentines day and we neglected to make reservations and everything was pretty busy. They did accommodate us a little later which was fine. It looked like a quaint little place that was warm and charming, downstairs. We ate upstairs...the room was put together like a after thought and the cacophony was very grating. The service was pleasant but slow, so very slow. Our meals came out after a while my Cesar salad was "artisan" which I guess in bc means giant leaves of romane lettuce that you get to cut up on a small plate. The calamari was good and my wife liked her salad. My main was forgettable. All in all I won't be clambering to go back any time soon.

“Beautiful Restaurant in Golden”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

Golden is an outstanding destination and the best place for quality meals and atmosphere is The Island. Great food! Fresh, perfectly prepared, beautifully presented. Home made jam is addictive. Warm and cozy log structure with tasteful decor and historic artifacts. Excellent, friendly service, meticulously clean facilities. Great place morning, noon or night.

“Something a little special”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Four of us went in while in the area for business. Service is great but the place was empty being a Tuesday and all. Ordered the Curried Calamari. What a big portion, enuf for two! Steaks were good and the beer on tap though limited was a good choice being a Revelstoke beer and all. Founf looking at the wine list a chore to decipher therefore didn't venture there. Get rid of the wood backing as I almost dumped some drinks, twice! Server was great but she did have quite a bit of time dur to the lack of other patrons. Will try this once again to be sure it's a keeper or not.
