Stopped here after visiting the life saving station on 4th street. We were pleasantly surprised. Food was excellent but the service was slow especially since it was early (about 430) and we were the only table in the restaurant. We will go back to try some of the novelty choices on the menu but will make sure we have plenty... More

This is a little local gem. Lunch and dinner. They have a wide variety of fresh fish, seafood and meats. Great place to take the family. Don't forget to stay for dessert!

My husband and I were keeping fingers crossed that the coffee was good because to us, that is a good sign that breakfast will also be good.....we weren't disappointed. Not only was the coffee good, but everything that followed was excellent...My husband loved the avocado egg melt and I enjoyed my pork roll omelette. The side of potatoes were absolutely... More

Our family visited The Island Grill on August 18. We arrived around 5:30 pm for dinner. Our party had 5 individuals. We were seated outside in very cramped tables. We placed our orders. We waited about 30 minutes before our food came understandable because of end of summer but we were invaded by flies. Instead of having citronella candles there... More

During summer season seating is available outside or inside. Be aware of flies inside the restaurant (from the doors opening and closing continuously) also inside is air conditioned, but doesn't really feel like it is because the doors open and close so much. Make sure to make a reservation if it's during the summer, it gets very crowded. Food was... More

$100 for dinner for two people, including a single $12.99 soft shell crab that was not fresh and instead fried within an inch of its life in a thick dough and doused in salad dressing over a few lettuce leaves. My husband ordered the $27 elk steak. The menu suggested it be served medium rare. Instead of a steak, it... More

Food was good, waiter was no good. We had our dinner outside, it was very nice till a seagull sitting on the building left a poop drop and it landed on our table. Building should have something on the roof to keep the seagulls away. We had to ask for our rolls, I asked for ketchup when I received my... More

Everytime I go to Ocean City I always make sure to have dinner at the Island Grill at least once. The menu selection is always tempting from the great seafood dishes to out of the ordinary delights like bbq burnt ends. The service is always friendly and accommodating. Just go early because the restaurant is going to be busy at... More

Our family of six have Ocean City's Island Grill a try due to its proximity to our condo and we were pleasantly surprised after reading some mixed reviews. Our waitress was the most personable of all the waitstaff we encountered during our week long stay. She even offered us pizza recommendations from other restaurants. My husband had the trout (one...
