    Our server, Miles, was outstanding. He was very knowledgeable, personable, and guided us through the menu. What an asset to this establishment!!! The food was absolutely amazing!! The Onion Crusted Corvina was delicious as were the appetizer crab cakes and all of the desserts. Everything was fresh and flavorful. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who demands high quality and very fresh seafood prepared perfectly.

    We received a gift certificate to Islands Fish Grill as a Christmas gift. It was a great gift as our meal was delicious and we would definitely go back there again! We had the Onion Crusted Grouper and Mahi Mahi, fried Spinach, Chimichurra Corn, Mashed Potatoes, and Cheese & Bacon Grits. The waiter we had was terrific!

    New Year’s Eve is also my birthday! This was our first time dining here. Trying to describe our experience is like trying to describe the best rock concert you’ve ever attended to someone who didn’t go. But here goes! My husband and I had the fresh snapper done in a sweet chipotle sauce with grits and Brussel sprouts. Our salads came out first and were tossed in a wonderful vinaigrette. We finished with key lime pie. Quite simply, we both agreed this was the best fish dish we’ve ever had anywhere in our lives,…ever! The fish was perfectly prepared. The chipotle sauce brought a delightful sweet heat with the perfect balance of savory and sweet. The flavor persisted bite after bite . Additionally, Service was prompt by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable server. It was a fantastic experience and we plan to take some family members there in a week or two. It was a wonderful meal that was a celebration in and of itself!

    All was good, but disappointed that there were no accompaniments with meal. No offer of bread, no salad. So seemed a little restrained for the price. Main course (fish) was superb!
