I hate to say it but we were very disappointed in our dining experience. From the moment when we walked in and were greeted with a very strong unfavorable odor, think port-a-potty... no bread, limited menu - no beef choice. We ordered the shrimp and scallops and it was too salty, in fact, everyone's dinner was over salted. It's just not how I remembered it, which used to be one of the best restaurants in town. Maybe / hopefully this was just an off night.

It’s a little dated inside but still cozy atmosphere. Server was great. Their menu hasn’t changed much over the years but the fish is always fresh, delicious and cooked perfectly. During these Covid times, I appreciated that the tables were spaced and every effort was made to make me feel safe.

I had an amazing dinner. The fish was expertly prepared. I have never had fried spinach, my server recommended it and it was so delicious. She also said the Brussels sprouts were a popular favorite, and I agree. My server was very friendly and attentive. A wonderful experience.

The food here is consistently top quality and amazing. The fish is always the freshest and that comes through each and every time with the profile of each dish. The onion crusted is always the star of the show but other dishes are equally delicious. The staff is always gracious, welcoming and very knowledgeable of each and every dish. I would highly recommend to anyone to come and enjoy the best dining experience around on the space coast.

From the minute we walked in to the end of our meal the dining experience was amazing. The hostess seated us right away and Trevor took out order at the perfect time. We are the chips appetizer that was delicious! The buffalo Mac and cheese had a nice kick. The snapper and grouper were so fresh. They were the best fish dinners I have had on our trip. Dessert was so good. We had the chocolate mousse and the key lime pie. Love the atmosphere and the price was right! Always a amazing! Can’t wait to be back!

Stopped in after my last visit while in town. This is the place to go, it leaves a lasting impression for sure small family environment. Service was prompt and attentive, server was very knowledgeable of the menu and the food overall was outstanding. Had the Thai Chili Shrimp appetizer to start then the Scallops and Shrimp Penne with a white wine reduction spinach, tomatoes onion and garlic, it was outstanding. Great stop again I will be back for sure every time I am in town.

Everyone was welcoming. The restaurant was clean and practiced social distancing. Trevor was our server, and he was polite and knowledgeable and helped in making selections. We were pleased to hear they had 3 fresh catch options. We had two of them and they were fresh and well prepared. The sides were particularly tasty and exciting. The chef prepares with imagination. This is constantly a great dinner whenever we visit Melbourne. Thank you for a nice birthday dinner.

The fresh fish was outstanding! It is caught by local fisherman. Both the corvina and red snapper were flaky, and we enjoyed the mild seasonings. (Blackened and a spicier versions were also available.). And don’t forget to try the grits (made with garlic.) The vegetables were cooked to a perfect texture.
Trevor, or server, was very knowledgeable and friendly. He checked back with us several times.
They seated people every-other-table for social distancing, and the online reservation was easy.
We would definitely eat here again on our next trip!

Islands Fish Grill remains one of our favorite restaurants for fresh fish prepared in an innovative style. Lori is absolutely our favorite owner/hostess. She always strives to accommodate especially in these trying times.
This visit was unplanned and just an excuse for a great meal out of our kitchen.
Thnak you Lori and the Islands staff.

Wheel of islands Fish Grill! You cannot ask for better fish and our favorite is the fried spinach! I'm always tempted to ask if we can get just an order of fried spinach it is that good! This is a family-owned business and the family members are working in the restaurant to make it a success, it is well worth the time and the money to come and eat here!

One of the beat meals I have has in my life. I hesitated to give it five stars not because it didn’t deserve it - it does - but because I’m afraid it might get hard to get into again if everyone finds out. PS - don’t miss the fried spinach. It’s not what you imagine: it’s unbelievable. The highest recommendation.
