“Fried Clam Strip PoBoy”
Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

My partner and I made a pit stop after a dr appointment at Mariners Hospital. The atmosphere about four in the afternoon was quiet and relaxing. I saw the specials as I walked in. The clam PoBoy stuck right out.We sat down at the bar. I ordered a tea. The home brewed ice tea was passion fruit as I found out later before we left.I looked at the menu it was pretty simple selection. I saw a a couple that caught my eye. One such item was Thai beef egg rolls.My partner order a big tom salad. It was their version of a Cobb salad. I ordered the PoBoy. When it was placed in front of me there was a boat load of fries, a cup of what I thought was very good tarter sauce and the PoBoy. The strips were about as thick my pinky. I was surprised with the first bite there were no dirty oil taste and I could finish the whole sandwich with out feeling queazy. Which by the way I scarfed it down. I have had plenty of clam strips down the east coast this is by far the best I have had. Great food! Definitely going back for second round.

“Tuna Nachos are da bomb!”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

So we had been driving by their sign advertising the tuna nachos. It sounds totally disgusting. Then we ended up stopping by for hog fish. Only they didn't have hog fish....so the bartender talked us into the nachos. The 'nachos' are fried won ton and the topping are seaweed salad and an amazing sauce. There was ample ahi tuna enough for two, but was so good I wish I ordered one for myself. The 5 stars are for the nachos. Otherwise this is your basic Key grill with open air dining and view of small canal and partial view of the ocean.

“Lovely view from the restaurant with very average food”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Food was very average. Chicken covered in sticky overly sweet chilli sauce was edible but not great.

Service wasn't great considering the restaurant wasn't full. Waited a long time to reorder water and drinks.

The setting is lovely as you overlook the water when dining but to be honest that isn't enough to make us want to return. There are better places in the Keys!

I appreciate you taking the time to review Island Grill Your review was very vague. I've contacted you directly and I am waiting for a return email. Everyone raves about our service. I would like to have some additional information to correct the issue. Also realize that Sweet Thai Chili Sauce is naturally sticky. And like any other food it might not be something you like which doesn't make it not edible it you aren't accustomed to the taste. Especially since the recipe we use is an award winning international recipe. Glad you enjoyed the view. I welcome you back for two complimentary entrees on your next visit. You name what you would like and Im sure it will be cooked beyond your expectations or previous experience.
