I had printed the menu ahead of our trip and knew it to be pricey, so we decided to go for the Monday night special. It was really worth the money. I had the crab cake and my SO had the grilled shrimp (both for $11.99). Each were served with vegetables and potatoes, as well as individual loaves of bread. Both were excellent, and the view and service were very good.

It is right on the beach and has an outdoor covered patio where you can eat. The location is great, the food and service were pretty good, and the prices were a little high but not too bad. There aren't many good places to eat in Cedar Key and you can do a lot worse than this one.

My wife and I have eaten here every time we have visited Cedar Key and have never gotten a bad meal. They specialize in fresh seafood which is always excellent. Prices are not the lowest for the island, but are reasonable considering the Island Room is a step up from most of the restaurants here. Service has not always been uniform, but was good on our last two trips. The view is great! Recommend for seafood lovers.

We decided to try the Island Room for the second time in many years for our anniversary. We should have known there was a problem when we were greeted by a gentleman server who was drenched in sweat and the AC felt like it may not be working. We were seated in our window seat as requested. The AC got better, but the service went downhill. My husband's ceasar salad looked terrible and didn't taste much better. Noticed another gentleman pushing his away after a bite or two. We had a 60 minute wait between our salad course and main course without any explanation. The fish dishes we had were marginal. The sides were good. All in all a disappointing evening. We should have tried the Island Hotel instead.

We had a great location right on the water. Food was the best. Ate a "low-country boil", which was $5 cheaper than that at Tony's Seafood and, we felt better tasting, and less work to eat. The salad was perfect, and the creme broulee to die for. Highly recommended!
