I don't know what the rankings are based on, but no way is Island Grille the 8th best restaurant in Atlantic Beach. It's #1 and not even close. I was there again Saturday night and had beef bourguignon (one of a few new items on their menu). It was so hearty and flavorful! When finished I asked my waitress (Deana, who was fantastic) to tell Chef Jason I wished I was still hungry because I really wanted to try the pink snapper special.
The food is great, and the wait staff does everything they can to serve everyone in a relaxed, friendly manner. Sure, it's a small place and can get a little noisy but that's what it sounds like in a place where people are enjoying a nice dinner and having a good time. Give them a try, and don't whine about the prices...it's a resort, fresh and quality ingredients aren't cheap, and they don't just dump stuff in the deep fryer.
