Big Wave with crispy fries!! I wish they made fresh salsa instead of that jarred stuff they give you with the chips and salsa. Otherwise great food and average service.

I had lunch with a friend here and while everything was good, it's still part of a chain so very predictable. The decor is always fun. The food was good but nothing really stuck out as outstanding.

Searching for dinner on a Thursday night, and having read positive reviews, I took a chance. Sadly it was a disappointment.

Usual stop after church or a movie. You know what you are going to get. Selection is good and the food is fairly tasty. Service is always excellent. We never leave feeling like we wasted our money.

Island's is always consistent, exactly what I expected. The food, drinks and service always good. The fries delicious and hamburger juciy. When you're on the road it's always comforting to get what you expected to. Thanks Islands.
