Over the last few years, I feel that theirportions have been cut down, especially the endless fries. They bring very small quantiities and make you wait quite a while to get more. By the time they bring them, you are done with the meal.

First visit and may return may not. Not that impressed. Just got back from tropical vaca and was missing the atmosphere so thought we'd give it a try. Told there was a 10-15 minute wait even though there were more than 5 open tables. No biggie, it was a Saturday night so we went to the bar and had Lava... More

Always liked the surfer motif & big screens w/different ocean scenes. Today waited longer for drinks & food, but they all worked well together to help. Had quesadilla & chicken club wrap w/tasty sweet potato fries. Passed the time enjoying the excellent island vibe. Even pics by the bathrooms are gorgeous!

Really wanted to like this restaurant. Cute theme and interior. Tables look like surf boards. Hubs had the Kilauea - Jalapeño & black pepper crusted burger w/pepper jack cheese, chipotle aioli, lettuce, tomato & Island Reds. His first burger came out wrong but they quickly made it right. I ordered the Maui - Guacamole, lettuce, tomato, onion, swiss & mayo.... More

We had a hankering for some good, juicy burgers so stopped by Islands about 2:30 p.m. on a weekday. The place had more servers than customers and was in general pretty empty. We were seated right away. So why, after 6 minutes, did no one come by to greet us, bring us drinks and take our order? Because the staff... More

We visited Islands on a Sat. evening and were seated immediately. Our server, Anna was absolutely delightful. She was pleasant, efficient and fun. My husband and I had salads which were large, but not too large like some places. My son had his favorite cheeseburger and the endless fries. Our visit to our local Islands was a nice end to...

Tropical atmosphere with surfing theme in pictures and videos playing. A two handed burger indeed. We get the Teriyaki burger every time with fries or onion rings Nice family place to eat

Some of my family members have gluten issues, so they have a special gluten-free menu. I usually just get some form of burger. They're ok. My mom had their gluten-free chicken tacos and she really liked it.

This wasn't my first visit to islands. We've been going here occasionally since they opened. I've never really had a bad burger meal here but tonight I found my burger to be barely warm and the 4 onion rings over cooked and barely warm too. The hamburger meat, what little could be found, had a chewy texture and was tasteless.... More
