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.

We enjoyed Island Grille so much that we came back a second time during our week at the beach. The service is spectacular! The small place was packed and we did not have a reservation, but Lois found us a table. Both Deana and Amber...More

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

Four people, four fabulous meals and two great desserts. Our only complaint was that the Grille was a bit warm.

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
