A meal is often better when everything is in harmony. Such is the case with my visit today to Islands Restaurant in Encinitas California. I had been there before and quite pleased then. But I forgot exactly why until I walked in for this visit. Upon my approach a greeter opened the door presented a nice smile and invited me in. I selected to sit in the bar area since I was dining alone and selected a table where I could see others as they entered the restaurant. They too, were greeted by smiles. I ordered one of their famous hamburgers from my waitress, Julie, and new I was in line for some great service. The food and beverage were delivered promptly and the hamburger was very tasty, substantial in size, and the fries were hot in crisp.
Although I was there for the food, I couldn’t help but notice how clean and bright the restaurant was. Each employee seemed happy and dedicated to making sure the visitors were pleased as well. No less than five waiters stopped by to see if they could get anything for me. No doubt great management makes a great difference. I would not hesitate to recommend the Islands in Encinitas to anyone who desires a casual lunch.
