“Good food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

Looking for a place to eat we ended up at Island Grill and we did not regret at all. Entrees are mostly around 25 dollars but sandwiches and some main courses are available for around 15. Mahi burger was fresh and pork rack tasty. Side dish of potato salad was good. Size of dish may appear small for American standards but for us Europeans it was sufficient. Key Lime Pie was great but the price of 2.5 pieces equals a whole pie that would have been an option to take and bring it home to enjoy it for a second time. Lovely service by Kelly.

“Bad food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

I ate there with a friend the food was very expensive and little portions and not good.
I wouldn't suggest this restaurant to anyone if they are in the Florida Keys. In the key of Islamorada

“Excellent food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

The seating was right by the water, which made for a relaxing meal. My husband and I both had the yellowtail sandwich. He had it blackened and mine was fried. Both were excellent. The waitress was efficient and helpful when we were trying to decide what to order. I do think that their kitchen is slow. It took a while to get our food, and it wasn't the waitress that delayed it. She kept checking in with us to let us know that the kitchen would have our order soon. The quality of the food was worth the wait.

“Great Menu and Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Loved the menu! Great and different selection. Had the special whole Hogfish. Loved it except could have done without the "crab stuffing". It was soggy, salty and no discernible crab. The "food runner" worked his butt off as well as the fellow busing tables. Hostess was energetic and friendly. Our waiter (bearded guy) on the other hand, was unfriendly, distant and kind of a jerk. He appeared to be that way with other tables as well. Can't remember his name but the other two guys worked circles around him. Guy that was playing guitar and steel drum was a nice touch. Would go back but stick with the catch of the day with no stuffing

“Tuna Nachos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

There are many great restaurants throughout the Keys, but none that I have found have Tuna Nachos. For those that love fresh sushi grade Ahi Tuna, you've got to try Island Grill. For those that don't like Tuna, there's plenty of other great tasting fresh seafood. The casual atmosphere, good staff, and view are also great. I highly recommend this restaurant.
