“Loved the Island Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2005

Arrived hot and tired, but once inside it was cool and welcoming, the rooms are charming.
The food in both the restaurant and bar is great and all sevice with a smile.
To sit on the wrap around balcony in the evening and just relax has got to be heaven, we liked it so much we stayed an extra night.

This hotel is historic, classy and casual. It has a great bar with beautiful murals and the best music in Florida. No Jimmy Buffett, thank hallelujah. Musicians, including some very talented locals, play there regularly. Friendly atmosphere! I liked it a lot -- turn-of-the-century-style architecture, high ceilings and wood floors, and very professional, lovely owners. Plus, it's where you can hear all the good stories about this little island.

We didn't stay in the hotel, but would highly recommend visiting the bar and restaurant. The bar has so much character and charm. The Island Hotel has great food. All local seafood specialities perfectly prepared. Skip the restaurants on the Dock Street unless you just want bland, fried food.

While the hotel & bar are charming (as well as, all of Cedar Key), the present owners (Tony & Dawn Cousins) are arrogant, rude & condescending to visitors, particularly locals, whose regular patronage would help the hotel's bottom line considerably. The pub or bar has such character & is a great place for a drink & a light dinner. The restaurant is great. But the attitude stinks & makes us never want to go back, until it changes hands.
