We had a drink in islands 2 nights running and enjoyed the large beers. The place was vibrant with sport on big screen tv's and the service was good

Met another couple and their daughter here last night. They enjoyed a Shorebird chicken sandwich, a kid's cheeseburger, and two fish tacos. We shared a Hula Burger (mushroom and Swiss). Also added a nice dark beer. All sandwiches come with unlimited French fries. Just ask and they'll bring you more. Service was a little spotty last night. Had to keep getting the server's attention for water/soft drink refills and napkins, and for the check. Otherwise it wasa solid Islands experience with a good burger, good beer, great fries, fun atmosphere, and a good time. Always enjoy coming to Islands.

we have been coming to Islands for YEARS and love the hawaiian and kilauea burger. THe hawaiian has a large pineapple with a large beef patty. The Kilauea burger is spicy burger with fried onions. They come with fries as a side but you can replace them with the fried onion rings which are good. There is a kids menu and for 4-5 dollars they get either a large cheeseburger, chicken strips, macaroni & cheese and a few others. They get a free drink too. On tuesdays, kids eat free too which we like to take advantage of(if you dont have kids, you might want to avoid tuesdays since it can be a little crazy with all the kids running around. Oh and an insider tip is that the low cal ranch tastes better than the regular ranch(if you like dipping your fries and onion rings in ranch).

A downside is that you have to valet for parking as there isnt street parking around. The parking near the houses is permit only and we learned the hard way(ahem ticket).

While people are right that if you're visiting LA there are a lot of other places you could go to have a burger, if you come to islands, i think you will go away satisfied(and maybe with leftovers since the burgers are pretty huge!)

My dad and I had the Maverick Burger and my mom had the Maui (w/ guacamole). OMG! It was sooooo delicious. The atmosphere is very beachy and the servers appear happy and up beat. This is not to be passed up for a great lunch!
