We enjoyed this restaurant far more than I expected. I had a delicious bowl of rice & fish & vegetables while husband & kids enjoyed burgers. Family friendly with great service.

Tucked away in the Desert Crossing shopping center, the Islands restaurant is a throwback to the Hawaiian dinner house concept…bar, open kitchen and lots of booths in a very stylistic setting with an Hawaiian touch, serving burgers, fries, tacos, salads, beer and liquor. TV’s on...More
