This location serves excellent food. Fresh, unique mix of flavors. Monday night they have a special menu and it featured amazing variety from oysters to lobster ravioli. Pastas made on site. Fresh everything. Desserts are amazing. Bread pudding is gold medal worthy. Fresh whip cream! Heart of palm salad with local heart of palm. If you are on the island... More

We came to Cedar key for the sunset and the clams. The sky was overcast so had to find a nice restaurant for reportedly the best clams in the world. We arrived on a Monday not realizing almost everything is closed Monday and Tuesday because they are busy over the weekend. The Island Room was a great find in the... More

We didn't go to The Island Room Restaurant the first time we visited Cedar Key. On our second visit someone told us about it and we decided to try it. It is now our favorite restaurant in Cedar Key. I haven't had anything that I didn't like.

We had superb service from the waitstaff here. I had a rum runner before dinner that was awesome. I had a steak that was cooked correctly, but not seasoned well. The prices seemed somewhat high, but prices were all somewhat inflated in Cedar Key because of location.Definitely go here if you want a nice atmosphere and a place to possibly... More

Although it's further down Second Street, you must have dinner here. Right on the water, looking towards the other islands in the gulf. Food is wonderful with a large menu to choose from. My husband can not eat fish or seafood but had a wide variety of other meats to choose from. The two waitresses worked together as a team... More

This was our second visit and we were racing fans the first time. However tonight's visit was disappointing. The crab bisque was hot and flavorful but the rest of our food was fairly average.

Hidden in an unassuming location is this gem of a restaurant. We arrived too early for dinner (they would have served us, but we don't like eating until 7) so we hung out at the bar, chatting with other guests and the bartender. Great fun! Lively conversation while enjoying a bottle of Steele chardonnay. We chose to have dinner outside... More

We eat at The Island Room on every trip to Cedar Key! I always have the grouper piccata which is fabulous and my husband tries something new. The service is always excellent and consistent. We have been coming to Cedar Key for years and this is by far our favorite restaurant.

We ate here with a water view, very nice service, upscale but reasonably priced. I would suggest for families, friends, and couples.

My husband and I celebrated my birthday dinner here in June and I couldn't have picked a better spot. The service was friendly and the food was excellent. The Italian egg-drop soup was unique and had a very flavorful broth. The shrimp scampi was the best I ever had. The shrimp were so fresh, they tasted as if they had... More
