Based on other reviews, dropped by Island Breeze Grill while vacationing in Elizabeth City. Very quiet weekday in November, so parking was easy and the restaurant was uncrowded. Nice décor inside and can watch people working out in a gym across the street. Only single wait staff, very polite and attentive. Ordered the fried tilapia, then waited... and waited. Perhaps...

An excellent buffet, authentic jerk chicken and sides. Would highly recommend to anyone who likes this kind of spicy food.

A "lucky" find that we've visited twice now. Interesting menu selections but we've always been drawn to the lunch buffet. All selections excellent, except desserts which seemed a bit old/dry. But who needs dessert after a nice assortment of pleasant Caribbean dishes and wonderful fruits. Also will comment that the both servers we had were really pleasant and attentive young... More

My mom and I wanted something different for dinner and decided to dine at Island Breeze. We've eaten here once before and though we were satisfied with the food (buffet) and service, we weren't satisfied with the sanitation. We found some unknown substance at the bottom of our to-go cups. Not sure if it was something in the ice or... More

Went on a Sunday for brunch, the server ushered us inside and invited us to have a look at the buffet they were serving, we decided to stay. The goat and meats in general were great. The candied yams were to die for!! Loved the food. Service was fast and attentive.

First time visit here and was impressed with the quality and selection of the buffet. Fresh veggies, tasty sides and quality meats. Everything appeared to be prepared fresh. Service was outstanding and very friendly. Will definitely return!

All of their sides are vegetarian-friendly: no meat, no animal stock, no broth in the veggies. In the south, where beans and bacon are a given, their sides alone make this place a gem. They also serve organic chicken, though I'm not sure if it's just the breast meat they use for strips, or if they buy whole organic chickens... More

I went back to the establishment. It has regressed since my last visit. I didn't try the jerk chicken or beef. I should have remained with the signature dishes. I tried the Escovitch Fish. It was described as lightly breaded and infused with lemon. It was a heavier fry crust and it was like eating a lemon infused with a... More
