The restaurant is pretty small. It is so popular on the island. So you have to book it in advance. We stopped by for dinner without reservation on a Saturday night. They could not find a table for us and our littler daughter cried for...More

We had reservations for a Monday night to take advantage of their two for one entrees. What they do not tell you in the ad is that the choices are limited. Very misleading. Food was OK. Seating was very tight and very noisy atmosphere. Would...More

This small establishment serves a limited menu of dishes that are big on freshness of ingredients and skilled preparation. The theme seems to be simplicity of seasonings and skillful cooking techniques to bring forth the fresh flavors of the primary ingredient. The crab cakes, for...More

Island Grille is my go-to restaurant at the beach. It's a tiny place and is always crowded so go early. Probably the best crab cake around. The chocolate torte is to die for. Monday and Tuesday offer a select BOGO menu. Locals love it..especially this...More

Four adults and the smallest booth I've ever sat in. Waffle House has better seating. Food was good, but extremely over priced and atmosphere was lacking

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
