    Tyrick the host was amazing ; he assisted us. Our initial waiter Tyler or whatever his name was did not even acknowledge us and assist every other guest but us. We waited over 20 mins before Tyrick took over and took our drink and food order. My hubby (we were there to celebrate his bday) Tyrick made the night great. But that waiter needs to be retrained.

    Overall, we had a good experience. It is slightly expensive but I do like that they include the 20% service fee - every team member is paid adequately and gets their fair tip. They did turn away a family with three kids because they didn't have enough booster seats which I thought was unfair to this family - so definitely not family friendly based on this interaction. But it would be good for a date night/drinks/catching up with friends.

    Our food took forever to bring out once it came out there was a mix up with our food and another table next to us. Quality of the food was avg at best and it was way overpriced. We ordered a few beers they took forever to bring to us and were warm. Will never come back here.

    I love the location, the eatery and the staff. I get treated with the utmost respect. The one day I attended, it was busy so the order was a little messed up but there is always a day where it won't be perfect but close it and that's what makes me enjoy coming back again every time.

    Really great prices on happy hour specials with a little something for everyone. The hybrid service model allows you to interact with your server as needed, but adding to your order is just a convenient click on your phone. The live band and cross breeze from over the river were the perfect touches to a great experience!

    Absolutely fantastic staff and service. The view from the patio is great. Coconut Shrimp was our favorite dish. Drinks were really good as well. Overall food was good but maybe a tad overpriced for the seafood options.

    Had a cute dinner date here Sunday night. The view is amazing and the restaurant itself is so cute inside and outside. My first waitress seemed drunk.🥴 words slurring forgetting everything and then midway through ordering she was replaced with another waitress that was absolutely perfect. She saved the night! I wish I remembered her name. The crab dip is really good comes out in a cute mini cast iron skillet with wonton chips. Yum! You can really taste the real coconut flakes used in the coconut shrimp. Had mochiko( I think lol) chicken as an entree with vegetable rice and plantains and let’s just say I’m not a fan of that dish. My date got blackened Mahi-mahi Mahi and it was very flavorful! Overall I want to love this place because I love the location so much but the food is just ok. The appetizers are great but entrees hit or miss for me. Will go back just to give them another shot and maybe pick another entree only because the view has my heart ❤️

    Food was good. Didn’t have to wait to be seated for our reservation. A lot of things on the menu were unavailable, so that limited the menu choices. Waitress wasn’t very engaging. Nice ambiance

    I've dined here several times before or after taking a boat out from Rockett's Landing. The service is friendly, the food is fresh and delicious, and there's a great view. In particular, I enjoyed the cocktails and Hawaiian inspired dishes.

    This was a family gathering (12 of us), ranging from ages 5-73. We ate outside as the weather was perfect. We were under a speaker so it was a little loud at first but they turned it down. I’d bought a drink at the bar and then took it to the table. My 14 yo accidentally knocked it over (half full). Without asking they brought me a full replacement at no extra charge. Food is as great and we had a nice, relaxing time. It does kinda feel like you’re on vacation with the laid back tropical ambience. The food was excellent, nice variety and also the kid friendly basics for the non adventurous eaters. Would definitely recommend.

    I've been to Island Shrimp at Rocketts a handful of times. The food has been good, the servers are friendly and fairly attentive, and the atmosphere is relaxing and attractive. My only complaint it about the host. He always seems annoyed and seems like he struggles to be even moderately nice. Even though I have always had reservations, a table is never ready and he takes quite a few minutes to get us to our table. His attitude is very unfriendly and is a bad first impression for the restaurant.

    First time visiting since it transitioned from Conch Republic. I was surprised at the poor quality of the food. Maybe it was a junior chef, but the food was ranging levels of temperature from proper to cold, the food was dry and lacked taste. The dressings were bland and unoriginal on the entre items. We ordered Fish Tacos and they were dry and with very little sauce. When we requested more sauce, the sauce lacked taste and wasn’t the consistency you would normally find for a fish taco (think more of a mayonnaise vs heavy dressing), Hawaiian BBQ also was dry and lacked sauce. The sauce was fine, much better than the fish taco. Everything else was perfectly fine, but it’s hard to mess up a burger, salad and chicken fingers. Disappointing for a casual birthday lunch! I think this is a great spots for drinks and finger foods but would avoid for main course meals.

    The service was disappointing. The server was not very attentive, even our drinks took forever to get to the table. We weren’t checked on after we received our food, and would have liked condiments, etc before the food got cold. Probably won’t return.

    The nacho starter was awesome. I loved the pork plate and especially the jasmine/ coconut rice. The cole slaw and macaroni salad were not good, but I’d eat two more portions of that rice. I also loved that they carry Blue Toad Cider! The price point was great.

    I had better hopes for this restaurant. The service was terrible, had to ask for our beverages from the bar 3 times. The food was over cooked and not even warm. The 20% mandatory tip was the least of the problems. I should have paid attention to the previous reviewers.

    We had a mysterious wait for our food to arrive from the kitchen. The restaurant was not that busy when we ordered, and the kitchen appeared to be well staffed. We had an eye on the clock primarily because we had middle schoolers with us. Our server (who was great) had no problem following up with the kitchen. When our meals did arrive, they were excellent. The atmosphere was terrific. Good value.

    Just like many other reviews say, the vibe was super cute, food delicious, but the service is definitely not worth raving over. The servers automatically get 20% gratuity and I feel like that truly sets the precedent on the quality of service you get from the point they tell you that and onward. None of the workers were enthusiastic about their jobs and really looked like they were counting down the time left in their shift. Our waitress actually left to go home in the middle of our meal and never told us. After sitting around for over 30 minutes another waitress came over to ask us if we needed help because she noticed we had been sitting there so long. Maybe we need to give the restaurant as a whole another chance, but we definitely were not impressed from our first visit.
