We had good service. The waitress was friendly. The food was good. I like the cabin style. It was clean. Well worth checking out.

Ordered beer on tap. It was served to us flat. When we told our waitress, she said ya I know. If you knew you were serving flat beer, why would you serve it?! I would not recommend the fish & chips. It was prepared more like frozen fish sticks. It was definitely NOT FRESH halibut...overcooked and fishy smelling.

There was only two staff handling the entire front of the restaurant so there was at times a wait for drinks, clearing of dishes, etc. Based on the reviews I was expecting better food, but it was pretty average.

Just staying overnight in Golden, we were looking for a place for dinner close by. We were delighted with The Island, a rustic log cabin decorated with an explosion of paper snowflakes and quaint holiday decor to suit the season! Nice, homemade comfort food, that is all the while tasteful and elegant. The duck salad was very nice. Perfect find... More

We came here for an evening meal after a full day of sledding. The menu was diverse so I was skeptical of the food served but was very impressed. I had the cashew chicken which had awesome flavours, my boyfriend chose the short ribs that were AMAZING, succulent, tender. My brother in law went for a pizza which looked homemade... More

We found The Island Restaurant by simply walking around, and my hubby checked Trip Advisor for quick reviews.. I'm vegetarian and was happy to see... More

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner. Our dinners were delicious, I had the Spicy Thai chicken noodles with veggies stir fry and my boyfriend had the Elk dinner. The drinks were very well done as well. Our waitress seemed very distracted (her section was nearly empty) and we felt we were not her priority. We waited 15-20min... More

You know you love a restaurant when you plan your trip to stop here enroute. We have eaten here many times, usually enjoying a cold brew and pizza heading home during our regular trips through the mountains in summertime. This time we came by in November before ski season and after hiking season and...they still serve awesome food and provide... More
