We are here twice during our stay, both times the food was really good. The first time we ate there, the second time we got it to go. Both times it was good. The fried shrimp was some of the best I've ever had.

The Islanders is our favorite place to eat on the island. We have eaten there twice on our weeklong trip to the island. Food and service has always been great. Not overly priced and everyone leaves there happy. They advertised wings tonight and they were...More

Amazing server!! He was very friendly and helpful. Our party of 10 was seated promptly. We liked the full bar, variety of menu options. We loved that it was upscale but yet still casual. And just a minute from our house- which was super convenient....More

There was one on the entrance to the restaurant at the lower set of stairs. But this is a very relaxed atmosphere. If you walked in and just asked about the food there would be no foul.
