Onion Crusted Grouper
locals favorite! crispy onion crust, bacon citrus glaze, choice of two sides
We had a lovely table and the the staff was inviting. From the appetizer to the meal it was delicious. The wine selections were vast and we ended up with a fabulous bottle that paired well with everything we ate. Will absolutely be back again.
The menu is fresh, delicious seafood. A great place for a special meal.
Our meal was absolutely delicious. This will be our special occasion restaurant!
Some COVID related issues causing diminished services. Overall, pretty good.
Beautiful, family-owned business with amazing food and a great atmosphere. They clearly love their work as the food is prepared with care, and the fish is very fresh.
The food was excellent! We went on Valentine’s day and they had a 3 course set menu with several good choices. I got the onion-crusted grouper and my husband got the mahi mahi. We sat in a small room that was intimate but not a super great atmosphere. But the food definitely made up for it. My lobster bisque was delicious and so was the key lime pie! We will definitely come back!
We were initially seated next to a “party” group. Ask the manager to reseat our table and our potentially miserable evening became a memorable. Thanks for accommodating our request!!
I picked Islands after reading the menu and having our original reservation cancelled due to COVID at the restaurant. It was fantastic. If you overlook it because of its location you are missing a great spot. We both ordered fresh catch specials. Our server came to us while we deciding to let us know that there was only one cut left of one of the specials. Excellent service. He provide great recommendations on the sides and toppings for our selections. The Shrimp and Crab Mac & Cheese was fabulous. We look forward to our next date there.
I have been here several times in the past. They have improved their recipe for the onion crusted fish. It was the best fish that me and my three table mates have ever had.
Waiter was great & the two fish selections he recommended were excellent. Onion crusted Trigger fish & Grilled Covina were wonderful. The only downer was finding parking in the pouring rain.
Fresh fish cooked to perfection every time. The grits and fried spinach are a must with any fish. Friendly staff and great service.
All food and sauces cooked in house- best gnocchi I have tasted in a long time
Food is excellent deserts are ok
Full bar to enjoy ahead of reservations
Our third time visiting Island Fish Grill. We’re only in Florida from Wisconsin for a month but MUST eat here each year! Amazing food and great service!! Easily the best fish I have ever eaten.
An absolute delight!
Fish was extremely fresh and well prepared as always.
We keep coming back.
Staff is friendly and service was great!
A little gem on 5 avenue...
This is a wonderful restaurant with incredible food! It is a family run business and everyone was very personable!
Yanni was amazing, so was the food!!
Great food and excellent service.
Trevor was a great server, pleasant experience quiet cafe to enjoy a night out with a loved one , date or a nice seafood meal. Enjoy.
Great experience with fabulous food. Can’t wait to return.
Trevor, our server was attentive, courteous and knowledgeable. Quick, friendly service and great help with our order. We will most definitely be back the next time we’re in Melbourne beach. The place is a Gem.
Dinner was wonderful. The service was excellent. The atmosphere was comfortable and welcoming. Our evening was great
As always the food and service was outstanding. We had the special triple tail and were very pleased. Very experienced staff provided great service and recommendations.
wonderful fresh seafood - well prepared and served by nice people who care. If you want excellent food in a good environment- GO
Food selection was limited but it was flavorful. Our meals were fresh and delicious. The restaurant was good about COVID measures. Highly recommended as a local and small business option.
As a retired chef I am a food snob! All aspects of dining were excellent! Hats of to the kitchen for creativity in preparation of menu items!! Fish is always fresh!! Awesome!!!
This was our third time there and it has been exceptional every time. We had guests in town, and all of them said that it was the best meal they’ve had in some time. Small, welcoming atmosphere. The owners walked around to tables to make sure everything was ok. Nice touch. You will not be disappointed in the meal.
Always enjoy the speciality Onion crusted grouper. And great service.
We have been going here for years when we are in Melbourne and have always had a stellar experience. This time, it was not so good. It took a long time to get our food and the food wasn't up to par. We were told that there was a new chef, so out of all fairness, we will visit again on our next visit before making our final decision.
We always have a great experience when we dine here!
Ethan our waiter was amazing!!! Knowledgeable, Personable, and Attentive. Ethan and the food are superb!
This is my go to place when in Melbourne when visiting on business trips from Arizona. I also bring coworkers here. The seafood is caught fresh daily. Creative specials. I could eat here almost every night when in town and never repeat a dish. I've been coming for years and the owner Lori always remembers me. My co-workers have also never been disappointed in the food or service. They have all said it was excellent.
Try the fried spinach as a side.
Wow! The food was superb and all freshly made that day. The fish was delicious and so fresh. The gnocchi is what I will be dreaming about for days. Also, you must-must get the handmade Key Lime Pie. This is a local spot and worth the visit. I’m so glad we ventured out and gave this place a try during our day visit to Melbourne Beach. Highly recommend and our waiter, Trevor, was a delight. If you’re looking for local/fresh seafood this is the place to go.
Food is creative and well prepared. Fresh ingredients and perfect seasoning elevated freshly caught fish from the area, something that is harder to find than you might expect.
Need to dampen the sound and put family’s with small children in the other part of the restaurant. Reserve the front section for couples and dinners looking for a special evening.
I think the waiter was overwhelmed, but I think he was welcoming the business. How can one staff with COVID? But the country music....what can I say?
Classy place, not classy music
Island fish grill was amazing! The fish is fresh caught Florida only seafood. Never frozen and never imported or farm raised. I had the onion encrusted sheepshead and it was honestly one of the best fish dishes I have ever had. Service was spot on and the beer was ice cold! Not only will I be back but I am recommending Island Fish Grill to all my friends and family!!
We’re in the area for Christmas. This was one of the few places open late on Christmas Eve.
I had Corvina, and my daughter and wife split the surf and turf. Everything was fantastic. Great flavors and presentation.
Our server, Alania (I hope I have her name correct), was amazing! Great knowledge of the menu, very personable, a d made us feel welcome late on Christmas Eve. She was the best!
I highly recommend Islands Fish Grill!
Great service and food. We chose to sit outside due to the virus. The traffic was loud. The car headlights of the cars in the parking lot across the street were blinding at times. Inside would have been more comfortable. Everyone was very friendly. We would recommend this restaurant and will dine (inside) there again in the future. Thanks to the staff.
Our table of five was very satisfied with our dining experience. The waitress was outstanding. I loved the onion crusted sheep's head. Highly recommend.
I wish we had not waited so long to try this neighborhood gem!
Our waiter, Trevor, is a delight. Professional, friendly and knowledgeable. It’s such a pleasure to watch him in action.
We had forgotten how delicious truly fresh fish can be. Both entrees were perfectly cooked and the preparations were creative and delicious.
While we initially thought that the entree prices were a little high, the final decision is that the prices were very fair for the quality and excellent preparation.
The wine list held some surprises and the bottle prices were reasonable and not the typical 100% markup.
We look forward to being a regular.
