Place is mega dirty and food is awful staff is rude and the bartenders looked mad angry and didn't know how to make a drink. Crappy food cheap ingredients. I got sick after eating here and I think its because it was either because of the filth or food had spoiled.

The food at Island bar and grill was poor. I had a lobster roll and substituted cole slaw for the intended french fries. the roll had a smallish pieece of lobster on top of a mixture of ground bits of lobster with mayo and celery and the cole slaw was a one bite wonder of old cabbage and no dressing(...

I had a beer or two there, it was just fine, and a reasonable atmosphere. The menu had a very chain-restaurant feel to it, which is probably excellent if you have kids, but wasn't what I wanted staying on an island.

My husband and I ate there for lunch and it was difficult to order anything if you are allergic to shellfish. They fry everything (shrimp, chicken wings, french fries ) in the same oil. If we did not ask, my husband would have had a serious issue since he is allergic to shellfish. After three tries he found something -... More

The portions at Island Bar and Grill are small!! The food is standard for MV, fried seafood, steak etc, but the plates aren't full and the prices match other area restaurants. Go elsewhere for a better value!

Good food and frozen drinks were awesome as well. A little warm inside even though a/c was on, but overall it was a good experience and all 8 of us were happy with the prices, food, and service

They weren't exactly forthcoming, but to be fair, they did replace it. The server was generally very good but the beer... More
