    Scrumptious fresh food! Local fish cooked to perfection and interesting specials. Our waiter Miles remembered us from 2 years ago and was superb in his attention and recommendations. Dessert was to die for. This is our favorite splurge as it can get a little expensive if you do 3 courses which is hard to resist, and the wines are delicious! Love this place!

    This place is a real gem. I booked it because I wanted seafood and because it was close to the airport, but what a find! The food was amazing, the service was great, waitstaff and owner were very personable and friendly, and the prices quite reasonable. Will definitely do this place again! Pro tip: get the onion crusted snapper: incredible!

    Onion crusted fish was amazing, service was outstanding, and just a great evening out. Parking was the only tough part. I am not great at backing out, so that’s alittle on me. A definite recommendation if you like seafood.

    Beautiful fresh fish.Caught locally and prepped on premises . Great selection of fresh local fish and staff know their product. Great meal in a typical beach restaurant …may have been an Italian place at one point judging by the decor . We enjoyed it.

    Great fresh fish with a good variety of species and preparation. Appetizers were delicious too. It’s a good spot if you’re looking for more traditional ingredients and preparation, nothing too adventurous here. Mashed potatoes and fried spinach were delicious and reminded me of my grandma’s. A good bet if you’re just in the market for some good fresh fish.

    Four of us a somewhat locals (Cape Canaveral and Merritt Island) and two friends visiting from MN. Decided to stay at the beach in Satellite and found this gem googling…. I rarely write reviews but have to say this dinner was fabulous. Unique twists on everyday menu items, fresh fish, nice wine collection, and very knowledgeable staff. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to support local business owners. Not cheap but worth the coin!

    Everything was just okay. I’ve lived in the area for a very long time and I dine out frequently. The wait staff was friendly and polite but weren’t very polished compared to other paces in the area especially considering the overall pp cost. The wine was decent and reasonable. We bought a bottle of prisoner for $65 but that was there best bottle. Just beer and wine. No cocktails. Yikes. The food was pretty good but I would not go back for it. I had the onion coated snapper. B+. But It came in some sweet sauce as did our appetizer. Sort of like Thai sauce. To much and I was surprised to find it on the app and the main entrée. My wife had the cobia over grits. She made me trade within two bites. A little dry. I enjoyed it but nothing special. All in all just okay. Nothing bad but I won’t go back right away to try it again.

    I cannot say enough about how good this place is. A bit deceiving from the exterior too. But, the staff knows their seafood and everything is fresh and local. A lot of attention to detail in how the dishes are composed. We make time to eat here on every visit to Melbourne beach, even twice when we have the time.

    Never like to give bad reviews, but we were visiting from out of town for our Anniversary. It was recommended to us. Very old building and decor. Tables are right next to other guest, so not much privacy. The food was below average. I am posting a picture of our appetizer. I questioned my fish being cooked thoroughly and both the wait staff and manager said it looked right to them. I didn’t eat my meal and they gave me 50% off. If I wanted to be ugly I would have demanded it be comped. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Honestly I truly bad experience.

    Islands Fish GrillResponded on August 7, 2022We are sorry to hear of your level of your dissatisfaction, but are somewhat surprised since upon reviewing the security footage your server addressed your concern & the manager came to your table immediately just to make sure everything was OK. You asked her if the fish looked undercooked, she said it was not, but offered to cook it more. You declined. We took 50% off w/o being asked as a curiosity since you expressed concern even though you ate over half of your entrée and 100% of your app

    We actually went twice in the same week and the service and atmosphere were relatively consistent. We all tried the onion crusted fish our first time around along with the fish chowder and crab cake appetizers, it’s quaint and the owner and staff were very pleasant and kind. The owner seems like a very genuinely kind and caring person. I do recommend that anyone reading this review goes and gives them a try they’re very worthy of your business.
