“Excellent”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

We dined here for our 10th wedding anniversary. We enjoyed the stuffed banana peppers and eggplant lasagna. Service was fast and friendly; everything was clean, and the atmosphere was just the right combination of upscale and casual.

“Bon Appetit”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Excellent food, Excellent service! If you are looking for a relaxed, and extremely enjoyable dining experience, make sure you visit the Island Gourmet Grill. I highly recommend the vegetable stack as an appetizer. If you like vegetables you will not be disappointed. My wife had the grouper tacos and loved it. I had the fried shrimp...but let me tell you, they were not the standard deep fried crusty kill 'em with sauce variety. They were large, butterflied, lightly crusted, with an amazing blend of spices. And while the food was excellent our server, Candice, as well as the gentleman working were very attentive. We enjoyed our dinner and enjoyed our conversation with Candice. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!

“A little gem no one seems to talk about.”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

We had looked for recommendations and received some locally in Anna Maria, no one mentioned Island Gourmet Grill, everyone was talking about Eat Here and Beach Bistro (see my review for that one). So we took the chance when driving past one night an popped in. First of all the title of the restaurant is a little misleading... its predominantly an Italian restaurant and as you walk in the full oven / pizza area is in view (with a slightly nuts cook!). The food was excellent, not one of the family was disappointed with their eats. I had meat Pizza, thin crispy crust proper tomato sauce and good amount of meat. We also had a chopped salad, slightly sweet (however I think thats a trait of US salad dressing when using mayo or sour cream that it has sugar in it) but it was tasty. Service was exceptional, we were well looked after and it was all served at the right pace. We enjoyed it so much we chose the place to have our meal on the last night of our stay also and again very good food and great service. I just dont understand why no one talks about this place but recommend it highly. (also it sits next to Dominoes pizza, cmon... why on earth would anyone be going to Dominoes with this next door??)

“Great place for dinner after a day in the sun”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We visited this restaurant back in May and really enjoyed the food. On my original review I made an error about the price of a glass of wine which I now intend to correct. We loved the food, it was fabulous and the wine was beautiful and fairly priced for this type of establishment. We will most definately be going there again next year.
