“early dinner at Island Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

I took advantage of the early special at Island Cafe. The dinner included an appetizer and desert. The meal was excellent,service was great. I ordered Shepard's pie the pie was great. Once again the meal and service are always outstanding.

“So good.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

So unpretentious on the outside, but elegant inside. The food was amazingly delicious from escargot (get this!) to the linguini with seafood (scrumptious) right down to the creme brule. We savoured a bottle of Laguna wine...most delicious splurge. Our waitress was pleasant and very accomodating. We will visit again soon.

“Delightful, but”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

The food at Island Cafe was excellent and we enjoyed the atmosphere. Could have been five stars except for a waiter with an attitude. The early bird special looks like a great deal. We will return.

“Fantastic Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Every dinner at the Island Café is memorable. The preparation and service are exemplary. Menu selection is wide enough to satisfy everyone's palate.
Service is attentive and friendly. The plain exterior belies the elegant interior.
Of course the food is exceptional. We eat here weekly and have never been disappointed.

“Fabulous Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

while an unassuming exterior, the ambiance and he food, was truly exceptional. Soft music, Sinatra and jazz, so that you can still converse, played, while the food was served Highly recommend the Grouper, we savored every morsel. Owner Bill was the perfect host. Menu will keep us coming back for more. some have complained about the service, but just ask for Bill, the owner, and you will enjoy a perfect evening.
