Hawaiian burger and fries were good. Cocktails were ok. Service was slow, but the waitress did a good job.

While in town on business, we gave Island's a try. Upon arrival we were quickly seated and provided menus. Our waitress came by and offered drinks. We each ordered a beer. They have several on tap. I ordered the Chicken Club Wrap and fries. The food was delivered quickly and tasted great. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meals. If... More

If you want burgers and beer it's consistently good. The portions are generous and service was efficient and friendly.

Very casual setting with some TVs for sports. Burgers are very good but the fries and onion rings are average at best. Quick service and friendly. Bill was $52 for two with three drinks before tip. Located on second floor of outdoor mall just outside of the Old Pasadena area. Parking garage around back. Other items on the menu. Good... More

Island Fine Burgers has become our first stop diner when arriving in Pasadena for five years now. The service is always good with friendly wait staff & good food. We've always joked if we had the time we'd just order a bottomless fries & soda & sit there watching TV for a whole day. The burgers are are great &... More

Excellent burgers in Pasadena - Islands offers bar food and a good variety of typical pub eats. Had dinner at Islands while in Pasadena last week. Nice draft beer selection including Kona.

I have not been to an Islands in a while, and although the service was a little slow (they were very busy), the food was very good.

Islands was a good lunch stop. We enjoyed the laid back, beach vibe very much, and for us, you couldn't beat the price. We all had burgers and fries, which were very good, but for some reason, mine just didn't sit all that well with me. No ill affects, just a feeling of uncomfortable full, even though I don't feel...

We stumbled upon this restaurant on our first night in Pasadena. It had great food, drinks, and atmosphere. Our server/bartender was very personable and attentive. We had happy hour drinks and sliders to share. They were delicious.

Wife and I decided to splurge from our calorie restricted diet and enjoy one of our favorites, a Bluenamie Burger and fries at Islands. Service was prompt, waiter remembered her lime for her Diet Coke. However, we were pretty disappointed when the food arrived. The side of fries that came with the burger was pretty small. Neither the fries or... More
