“A must try! Delicious!”

Great value in a quaint setting. We loved all the food we ordered, the chef came to our table and asked how everything is... Big changes have taken place here, you will love the Italian food! Great for kids too

“Unquestionably, the best restaurant in Holmes Beach!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

If you remember how this place used to be, forget it! The fired that lazy Maitre'D as well as the "garlic king" cook. It's a whole new concept and a whole new staff since last year. And what a gourmet meal!!! You just have to try this place, it makes the others that we have reviewed on this island pale in comparison. The atmosphere is classy, the prices are right, you aren't crowded into a tiny space and forced to eat your food fast so they can turn the table. It's spacious, clean and good. We had the seafood special...it was better than any perch we ever had in Green Bay. Our compliments and thanks to the new owners!

“Excellent Pizza - New owners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

We were looking for some take out Pizza & Salad & had seen some previous negative reviews, but saw also that they were under new Management,
Well it looks like they have cracked it as the Pizza & Salad were both fantastic. Just wish we had found it earlier in our vacation & eaten in & tried the Calamari! Highly recommended.

“Our first meal under new management!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

Three of us visited to try the restaurant and change of ownership. We fried two appetizers, calimari and wings. Both served with nice dipping sauce. Wings just a tad spicy which was great. Calimari right on. Entrees were back ink pasta, stuffed flounder and eggplant lasagne. All great. The lasagne does not have noodles and uses layers of eggplant and cheese smothered in vodka sause. We enjoyed a bottle of cabernet for $32. Ended with yummy smores style desert. It was fine but could use less marshmallow and more ice cream. This is all a nice step up from previous owners and worth a try.

“Great Menue Selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

The Island Gourmet Grill is under new ownership. The new chef is from a 5 star restaurant. The menu has a great selection, including chicken wing appetizer with Thai chili glaze and a wonderful chopped salad, two fish entrees and oysters. I had the Shrimp Scampi with papardelli pasta,on my first visit, it was very tasty with just the right amount of garlic. My second visit, I chose the recommended Eggplant Lasagne with vodka sauce. It was delicious. Dessert was a brownie s'mores treat with ice cream and marshmallow topping! I will definately make this one
of my frequent dining places. The L de Lyeth cabernet was excellent.:)
