This restaurant is apparently going to be closed at the end of August and our dinner experience was almost like it was already closed. The food was not good and it took almost an hour from the time we ordered until we received our food. I can see why it is closing down soon.

Place was fairly deserted so we were skeptical on the food, but it was delicious I would recommend the crab cake Benedict

We decided on The Islander since it was close to Volvo Car Arena. The menu was limited. The service was friendly. The martinis were fair. The food was good, but the grouper was bland. My party was not impressed with food flavoring, most were bland.

Waitress took a long time to take our order and our food was almost all gone before she checked on us, and that was because we reached out to another waitress for something. The fish was overcooked, but was replaced by a better piece when mentioned to the waitress. Waitress was very attentive after that.

Brought our desert with a candle when we mentioned the birthday we were celebrating.

Food was good but I thought over priced. Service was good after I engaged the waitress in conversation. Not good was that someone was fixing something in the ceiling while we were eating. Also, someone stood by waiting for me to pay the check, not my waitress though.

The first bad meal I've had here. The scallops were extremely small & the sauce was very salty. The calamari was good but the bread was stale

Our service was exceptional as was the meal also. My husband and I were celebrating an anniversary and just decided to walk over from our hotel after checking in. We were more than pleased with our meal. We both chose the Shrimp and Grits and loved them. We shared a slice of Key Lime Pie for dessert and it was delicious also. I would recommend The Islander to anyone who wants fresh seafood with good service.

I was disappointed with the food our waiter needed to be told we needed spoons for our coffee,cream,sweetner,. We had to ask for salt and pepper. If it hadn't been for Nicole it would have been a total dissapointment

The meal was enjoyable. Everyone agreed the wahoo was a little overcooked. The tuna appetizer was awesome!
