Islands has the best fries---and they keep on coming! You can have as many baskets as you want with your burger. The servers are energetic and enthusiastic and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch there!

My wife love the Mahi Mahi Hoisin Bowl. The food is pretty good, my issue with Islands is the fact that two people with dinner and a couple of soft drinks gets to be around $40.00 pretty quick. Just a little too much for a burger, salad, bowl, wrap kinda meal..

Service is always good. Food is consistent and good. Fun environment with the videos. Yes, there is one in Hawaii too so pretty legit for "Islands". A bit expensive but they will refill your fries.

I had the opportunity of eating their "Malibu" but the burger had nothing special. The server was gentle and a true helper.

We stopped here for a quick lunch and it was "Good, fast, and friendly." Our waitress was awesome and she made our visit great. The food is wonderful and quite tasty. I had the Shore bird lunch special which came with fries and a drink for $8.99. Restaurant is very clean and you will enjoy it tremendously. Thank you kindly... More

I have always gotten really good food at Islands and enjoy eating here. I took my sister here when she was out from Texas. The sign out front said something about Fine Burgers (or something like that) and my sister made a comment, "it's a burger, how do you make it fine?" Well after the meal we walked out and... More

Food is better than average, as is service, but the 4 start rating is for the kid-friendliness. My kids were thoroughly entertained with the "scavenger hunt" on the kids menu, and it seemed like everyone in my section was there with small children. The kids menu offered more than the usual nuggets/hamburger/grilled cheese options (though those were there as well),... More

The service is usually good, however this last time it was pretty horrible. We sat at a booth in the bar area. The female bartender kept ignoring us. We had to ask a passing server to take our order. We had to flag someone down for drink refills. On the plus side, the burger & fries were delicious as always.... More
