    Nice afternoon on the patio for peel and eat shrimp. Weather was perfect, food was delish. The Halfy Hour promotion, with everything on the menu half price, is such a great value that we have been to ISCO three times this month.

    The dining experience was very good. Only had drinks. The noise level was moderate, I like a busy restaurant. The ambience was beautiful, and the service was welcoming. Overall, I enjoyed the evening there.

    Our server, Philip, was very pleasant and attentive. I ordered the shrimp tacos. They were good. My husband ordered the kahlua pork sandwich. The description sounded delicious. However it didn’t have much flavor. It was pretty bland. The pineapple upside down cake was delicious. I would return….it wasn’t a bad experience, but it wasn’t great either….because the meal wasn’t as good as we had hoped!

    Our reservations were for 8:30 PM. There were six of us. By the time we placed our orders and received them, it was after 9 o’clock and the kitchen was closed and we weren’t able to order anything else. I disliked my entrée and didn’t even touch it after the first bite, and wanted to order something else, and wasn’t allowed to. I left hungry even though our bill was over $200.

    Food, drinks and service were excellent! We have some concerns, though. 1) Staffing: We were told by the greeter that rooftop seating wasn't available due to low staffing. During our last visit, our server also told us that she had to work at both Island Shrimp & Casa del Barco. 2) Several menu items weren't available this evening, including the burgers! Also, other staples such as the key lime pie and shrimp & grits aren't available anymore. Both of these concerns hint at future closure. If so, it would only be fair to close both Casa del Barco AND Island Shrimp at Chesterfield Town Center & reallocate the staff to the other locations, in addition to bringing back past menu items. Very sad to see this happen.

    This was my 3rd visit to this establishment. Food was to me not quite satisfying, but I don't recall that be the case the other 2 visits. Once before the pandemic and the 2nd time during the pandemic. Not sure if that has a thing to do with the difference in the food on 8/11/22.

    Let me begin by saying that we Love Island shrimp co. This time I purchase the pineapple with lobster. There were 3 spoonfuls of rice and 3 shrimp. Really disappointed for a 175.00 meal.

    We went to experience their current halfy off special, took some getting use to ordering through our phones but got some assistance. The food was good and definitely a value at 1/2 off…likely to go back if they offer the special again.

    The online ordering system at every table is difficult to manage, especially with a large party. Also, without a designated waitperson, we had no idea who to reach out to with questions. Lastly, no one came to clear the table during our time (apps plates stayed on the table, empty water glasses stayed at the table, etc.). However they think this new service model is supposed to improve the quality of the experience - it is not working. Which is such a shame as the food and the drinks are wonderful and the atmosphere is great! Would definitely go back if the online ordering system were changed. Not so sure if it is not.

    The Halfy Hour promotion makes this favorite place of ours affordable. We tried some new drinks and enjoyed appetizers (the island nachos with kalua pork were outstanding), peel and eat shrimp (up there with the best I’ve ever had) and entrees (the kalua pork again - just fabulous). If you are looking for great food at half price, ISCO is the place to be.

    The ambiance was aesthetically pleasing. However, it didn’t make up for the lackluster food. The shrimp in our tacos and shrimp platter was over cooked. For a shrimp restaurant, we were expecting a better experience.

    Food was good except French fries were cold. I have a problem with paying 20% tip for poor service. We basically saw our waiter once. You put your order in and your credit card # and someone brings out your food. Waiter never came by to see if everything was ok or if we needed another drink. I know why it wasn’t busy. So… what was the wait staff doing?

    Food was tasty, hot, and a good value at 50% off menu price. Ordering was a learning experience using a cell phone to order and pay. No single server for our table. We had at least 4 servers bringing food, checking on us, and clearing dishes. A little confusing not knowing who had responsibility to serve us, but in the end it worked out. One entree arrived long after 2 others, and deserts were slow to arrive. Things worked out OK, and the fixed 20% gratuity wasn’t terribly unfair.

    Island Shrimp Co had a halfy hour. And they did not disappoint. Left with bellies full and pockets happy 😁 the crab dip and chicken skewers were a favorite of the tables. The coconut shrimp were my favorite. And you can never go wrong with the Mochiko chicken. This time we got a sandwich. But the plate/entree is just as good too!

    The hostess was very friendly and nice, and that was about it. The wait for the food was long, considering no one was even there, the service was awful, the food itself was either bland or very salty.

    All staff we encountered were engaging and pleasant! Bria was our primary server; she was fantastic! You can tell she really wants to get to know her customers! Everything was delicious; the crab dip, the wings, the sweet potato fries, the teriyaki salmon Caesar salad, the key lime pie, all of it! Wife says the mojito was fruity but a little light on the alcohol. Just a couple of recommendations... please bring back the shrimp and grits!! Yours was the best in Richmond! Also, bring back DJ nights; if you set it up, they will come!

    The apps were really good. The food was good overall but side items (corn) could have been served hotter. We did not love the pineapple upside down cake (cake tasted like biscuick) but the chocolate coconut ice cream cake was really good. Loved the rooftop outdoor dining vibe.
