Due to recommendation from many locals, I stopped by for lunch. I ordered a meal consisting of a burger and fries. I asked for the burger to be well done. The food came appropriately quickly for a well done burger, and the fries were hot....More

Islands is a chain. I’ve been to several. They enjoy consistency and quality. My wife had tacos. I wasn’t very hungry and had a quesadilla. All was good. We ate in the bar - by choice. The server was good.
