Great food. Limited menu was challenging for our 12 year old, but even he thought the fresh grilled mahi was awesome.

Been here multiple times and it never fails to please. They normally have onion crusted grouper but it was not on the menu, so settled for onion crusted jack and it was fabulous. But, I would eat that onion crust on a flip flop. Be sure to try the fried spinach.

The fish is the freshest I’ve ever had. We ordered very specific meals and they got all requests correct. Also they gave us free of charge a small bottle of champagne for our anniversary. Perfect. Highly recommend. Delicious.

the menu was limited as the 'virus restrictions' on volume were still in place. The food offered was very good and the preparation were wonderful. I was a bit disappointed in the wines offered (not great choices) but overall it was enjoyable.

My wife and I wanted to get out of the house and have a date night and Islands Fish Grill was The Ticket. She had the Snapper and I had the Sheepshead ( it's a Fish ) and both were fantastic.

Valentines evening reservation: Usual menu choices were cut by 1/3 - 1/2, offering no bread, a single salad choice, one soup, four entrees, and three desserts. Service levels were compromised by packed reservation seatings, each filling and emptying tables at the same time, guaranteeing a kitchen backlog and slow delivery. Instead of a special experience on a special night, the restaurant made concessions to accommodate high demand. Having had an amazing meal there less than two weeks earlier, we were hoping for more of the same, but Island Fish Grill did not deliver.

My wife and I were there for Valentines Day with some special friends. We arrived at 4:45 pm which we had an open table reservation. As soon as we got there they wanted us to order. We asked if they had bread as it is a fish restaurant— they said no because it was Valentine’s Day??? At the end of one hr at 15 minutes and we had paid our check for $270 — Lori the owner comes to our table. Whom we know as have been there 5 times in the last 10 weeks. She interrupted my wife who was giving our guest a gift (as she is going in for surgery) to tell us she needed the table even though there were at least 5 empty tables in the dining room we were in, I was so embarrassed for my wife and our friends.
We got up and walked out —NEVER to return. Their food is good and is a nice place but we will never go in again. I understand it is Valentines Day but you need to understand people go out for this special day for a reason and it is not to insult them no matter how many reservations you have!

This was our first time visiting Islands and we were very pleased with everything. Yanni was our server and he took care of our 6 person group very well. I had the Crusted Grouper - an Island specialty and it was excellent. Other people had the Market catch - which was prepared very well - and the Filet Mignon - which also was prepared very well. The beer and wine selection was good as well. We will return to Islands Fish Grill in the near future.

I had the filet medallions with potatoes and asparagus. My filet was burnt on one side and the asparagus was inedible it was so charred. I did ask for more asparagus and got it but not until everyone else was finished with their meal. Our waiter did not ask us how our food was after it came out. I had to flag him to tell him about the asparagus. The rest of my family liked their meals ok.
