Had a superb dinner that was diminished by the size of the restaurant and the noise level. Very small for table sitting, about half the restaurant is in fact the bar. Monday is BOGO night just like Tuesday so all tables filled when we arrived...More

My husband and I dined at the Island Grille for the first time a few weeks ago. Small and intimate with a great atmosphere! We had the crab dip for our appetizer and it was probably the best I've ever had! And I am a...More

Island Grille is one not to miss. BYGO free Monday and Tuesday amazing. Reservations are a must. Small and off the beaten path, but so worth it.

Tiny place but good food, signature filet mignon was tasty and perfectly cooked. Shrimp, scallops over Gouda grits was tasty and large enough for lunch the next day. The standout was the Key Lime Pie... tart and sweet and heavenly. Pricier than expected but nice...More

This place is REALLY small - based on their popularity, they really should consider expanding! Because we did not have a reservation, we ate at the bar, but Key West Ken took good care of us. Go on Monday or Tuesday when select entrees are...More

Many seafood restaurants along coastal Carolina feature fried fish and overly salted food. This is one place where you'll find excellent preparations of freshly caught, locally sourced fish. I had the yellowfin tuna, cooked rare, with a Champagne glaze on top. Amazing fish! My wife...More

The Island Grille is a small restaurant on Atlantic Beach. We specialize in keeping our menu fresh and try to accommodate both those with a thirst for fresh seafood and those who would rather try a traditional dish with a new perspective. Although we would love to accommodate everyone who walks in our door reservations are recommended and the restaurant is LIVELY! You may be seated close to other guests, you may get visits from all of our staff throughout the night as they graze your table.. If you are looking for a great meal in a fun and fearless environment check us out on Monday or Tuesday during BOGO entree night. If you like things a little more laid back I recommend reservations any other day! But, I always recommend them!!! See you soon at The Island Grille! -Amiee Scott General Manager
