We made our reservation over 1.5 months ago but had to leave a voice mail, so I called to confirm about 2 weeks later. They told me they had no record of my original reservation but made one for the same day, at a different...More

We tried to eat there last night. My friend and I (2 professional women) arrived appropriately dressed for dinner. It was crowded and there was a 45 minute wait. First, The hostess skipped us purposefully to ask the couple behind us for their name. We...More

One of this reasons I LOVE to go to IG is the way they prepare their Fish. The #1 restaurant in AB is consistently good - but almost all the time they prepare their fish with some kind of crust. Seafood is delicate and only...More

From the outside the Island Grill looks like a local grill but don't let that keep you from going in. They have the best food of any restaurant I have been to on the coast. Not inexpensive, but worth every penny. No trip to AB...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
