The food was amazing, but the service is terribly slow. Eat at the bar the bartender is a better waiter than the waitresses.

Tiny but packs a punch. Make reservations on Monday or Tuesdays to get a gourmet meal at buy 1 get 1. We go every time we are in town. Stuffed filet is always delish

We weren't hungry, so just got a couple appetizers--chowder, fish taco, Maryland crab cake. All were fresh, wonderfully prepared and nicely seasoned. Good and friendly service.

Daughter In Law and I went here to eat after seeing a movie, It was very tasty and fresh! The wait staff was great as well as the food - I had shrimp and grits, she had Crab Cakes - both were excellent! Make sure you leave room for dessert and get the Peanut Butter Pie (its to die for)

This restaurant has consistently great food and servers. This time we had an amazing filet, crab cakes, and chocolate cake. Their crab cakes are the only ones I order. They are truly unique.

Went last night with two friends who live at the beach. 3 of us had the filet with pepper sauce, feta cheese, and another veggie. All loved it. My wife had scallops and scrimp with spinach and tomatoes with pasta. Terrific! You don't need appetizers just some wine or beer, it's enough for most people. IMPORTANT ! If you go... More

Description
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!
