There are many dining choices in this area and this is a solid choice if you're looking for burgers and fries - always lively, good service, nothing fancy, unless you count photos on walls of surfers riding incredible waves - I prefer Islands over Fat Burger around the corner!

We stopped for lunch. The burgers were ok, nothing special. Service was really slow and the place was almost empty at around 5 pm (we went for a late lunch). Had to ask for refills because the servers seems distracted on their phones. Kind of expensive for mediocre food and marginal service. Its was ok but wouldn't go back.

We always come to Islands if we feel like we want to be transported to the tropics. Seriously the food is great depending what you like. I love their hawaiian burgers. This is the reason why I come to this place and it never disappoints. Always great service. I do recommend this place.

Pretty good burgers of all types with various toppings and treatments. Don't go for the wilted salads that are so pitiful we had to return it and order something else. The wait staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating despite that disappointment; the switch was made without any fuss. Burgers are tasty, grilled, big and a little bit greasy only. Island...

Visit to Islands this evening which didn't start overly well when requesting a table for six were asked to wait for a while despite being a very obvious table being available. Funnily enough ten minutes later we were seated at the table. Food was okay - for a burger joint in the US it was fairly obvious but little disappointed... More

First night out in Burbank while visiting Universal Studios and found 'Islands' quite enjoyable. The dining crowd was watching the finale of the Cavs vs Warriors game so we had to wait a while for a table but worth it. The service was very attentive and the food not bad. There was an error made in one of the orders... More

Quick stop with the family on Valentines while traveling. Was afraid of a long wait, but were seated right away. Excellent service. Drinks & food was brought quickly and my kids (ages 6-12) actually ate everything! That was amazing.

We had a group of eight on New Year's Eve. We were staying in nearby hotels and just looking for somewhere to dine on the holiday that wouldn't be a long wait. They were able to get us right in. The staff was very friendly and the wait was not long for anything we ordered. I thought my mango-Rita was... More

A group of us went to Island when in town for the Rose Bowl. Islands wasn't our first choice but we didn't want to walk very far from the Holiday Inn so we 'settled'. So glad we did. The 3 people that got burgers LOVED them. The person that got nachos LOVED them. We got hot wings and LOVED them.... More
