The Island Grille is a small restaurant on Atlantic Beach. We specialize in keeping our menu fresh and try to accommodate both those with a thirst for fresh seafood and those who would rather try a traditional dish with a new perspective. Although we would love to accommodate everyone who walks in our door reservations are recommended and the restaurant is LIVELY! You may be seated close to other guests, you may get visits from all of our staff throughout the night as they graze your table.. If you are looking for a great meal in a fun and fearless environment check us out on Monday or Tuesday during BOGO entree night. If you like things a little more laid back I recommend reservations any other day! But, I always recommend them!!! See you soon at The Island Grille! -Amiee Scott General Manager

Doesn't look like much from the outside, however, the food and service was well above average. We arrived early on a Friday (5:45 PM). Ig Grill filed up fast and by the time we left at 7:30, there was a wait.

Last year Island Grill changed the recipe on their scallops, shrimp and spinach with wine sauce fettuccine. They made with less calories. Also less flavor!! Went back after a year and it is back the way it was. It's by far one of the best...More

Crowded... and you'll figure out why after one visit... Exceptional food. BOGO dinner specials on Mon/Tue are a draw for us local retired folks. Bartender is a gas... loads of fun and smiles.

The mahi mahi was dry. The strip steak was burned and rare instead of medium. The bread was two brown and serve rolls.

I would call them- not sure the restaurant will be open but they have a thanksgiving buffet at the celebration cottage (on ocean in front of restaurant). $35 person- but reservations are required. 252-240-0000
