Little place with a big taste! Don’t let the building fool you. Looks small and is. But Inside is a classy yet Beach casual restaurant. Nestled at the end of a beach street and surrounded by Beach house - just a few steps from the...More

They do not have GF options, but a sandwich without the bread was fine. Tasty all around. The place was empty but service was fine.

Surroundings are a little cramped but food and service are both good. Entrees are skimpy so make sure to order a couple of appetizers.

Have been there now maybe a half dozen times. Never ordered anything I didn't like. The rolls with dinner could be better....a good bread or good rolls would make a difference. The bartender Ken is one of the best around. Small, cramped, friendly, with great...More

I chose the restaurant tonight, and from the ratings and the interesting flavor combinations on the menu, I expected something extraordinary. I was wrong. I expected the lackluster seating from the previous reviews, but the food was a disappointment. I should've been forewarned when the...More

Always enjoy visiting. Food is fresh, service is good. They offer more than traditional beach fare. Many traditional fish favorites can be found especially in summer. Brunch was very good and not too expensive. My only complaint about IG is some menu items can be...More

Cozy environment so reservations are recommended. Local oysters were delicious. Fresh catch was very nicely done. Scallops and shrimp excellent. Salad was very fresh. Nice wine selection. Bar service very good. We will return.

First time to go to brunch at IG. It was absolutely wonderful. We both had “eggs & hash” which was a base of hash browns with mushrooms and red peppers. Topped with 2 perfect poached eggs and just the right amount of hollandaise sauce. Service...More

I hear this place has BOGO on Mondays and Tuesdays and that's when all the locals come, so it's crowded. (Or so the staff at the resort where I was staying warned me.) Since I was traveling alone I avoided the BOGO, but found out...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
