We've been frequenting the Islander for a few years now and they've never disappointed. The owners, Will and Mark are awesome guys who always make you feel so welcome! Det is our fave server, she's the sweetest! The Sunday roast is absolutely delicious as are most items at the Islander. This Sunday roast is better than many we've had back... More

We went out looking for a taste close to home and found the Islander, they have a great burger and beer, the side slaw wasn't all that great and if you want chips you have to pay quite a bit extra. I also tried to get a draught beer and they were out... Back to bottled Thai beer😪. Altogether it... More
