We had couple of blackened flounder fish sandwiches. Very good. Not too many places to just eat lunch at on Dauphin Island. This one came recommended by some locals and was a nice find. Friendly staff, good food and bread pudding for dessert!

We went here for a small Birthday gathering while staying on the Island. Jordan was our server and he did a super job. Food was great but the Margarita was even better. I had Crawfish and Artichoke Pasta and I had enough to take home for lunch the next day. Two people in our group had the Sampler Seafood Platter... More

Visited on vacation. Had the fried crab claws which were terrific! Service was quick and friendly. It's off season so nice to have a quiet place with good food. I would return. Bar service was good. Had a strawberry martini extremely potent!!

Got on the Island later than we anticipated on a Sunday night. Since it's the "off season" we were lucky to find something open and Islanders was it. They said they had already closed the kitchen but when they found out we just wanted a couple of burgers, they relented but said the fryer had already been cleaned so they... More

There are not a lot of places to choose from on the island, Islanders is pretty good. They have a variety of seafood, pasta and chicken. Service was good. Prices are average. Pasta does not come with salad and if you want bread it is extra. It is good, but it should be included. Very clean and friendly.

I heard from a local this is the place to go. From the outside it looks amazing. After 20 min and no drink we left.

We arrived on Dauphin Island later in the evening and passed this restaurant ....it was almost closing time but our hostess eagerly welcomed us in and seated us. The items on the menu are a little pricey but the food is good and our service was excellent .

Had the seafood gumbo & the Islander's Smash. The gumbo was ok. Not spectacular. The drink was pretty awesome though. Waitstaff was VERY nice.

The outside patio was chill and enjoyed the laid back ambiance. Waiter was friendly. Food was decent. I was disappointed in the portion size of the sampler for $23. At the same price point, I've had much better offerings in other coastal towns. We didn't get one of the sides on my husband's dish, but they were very accommodating offering... More

We ate dinner and breakfast here. Dinner was delicious, but the breakfast was absolutely wonderful and super affordable. Breakfast is offered on weekends only.
