So surprised to find really fresh, perfectly prepared sushi on a little island in the middle of nowhere. Lovely restaurant with great views of the water and marina. We have tried just about all the different offerings on the sushi menu and loved every one - including the rolls. They have the hot grills where you can sit and eat... More

Luckily, we arrived in time to get our drinks and see the sun set over the water. We had great, friendly service with helpful suggestions and menu explanations. The soft shell crab appetizer was the best I've ever had, salads were crisp with lots of ginger, vegetarian tempura was very good, and the tuna teriyaki was out of this world.... More

We loved the food at this place, I just wish the main course had more accompaniments. Still, I would dine there again.

We came for a family dinner of 10, with reservations. We arrived and learned that there was no hostess. Called out sick?? No one at the front of the restaurant assisting diners as they came in, pure insanity. Apparently another reservation arrived late so our table was not available for us. Ultimately we were sat on the porch as we... More

I celebrated my 50th Birthday with a party of 25 family and friends at Island Ocean Star this December 2016. This restaurant has a beautiful outside area with views of the marina and million dollar yachts. We had the outside area to ourselves for my party, it's perfect for private events. I'm giving this a 5 Star rating for several... More

We called late morning direct to the restaurant and made a reservation for 4. When we arrived, there was no record of our reservation or the reservations of At least 4 other parties at the hostess station. The place was packed and there was no chance of solving this dilemma. Its excusable to lose the reservations of people that call... More

The food is fresh and the fish is of highest quality. The staff is exceptionally accommodating and helpful in planning an event. There is a beautiful bar, friendly servers who... More

Good location, good service. Wonderful fresh fish, good decor. We love sushi and it did not disappointing. There were other options on the menu if someone in your group is not into Fish. It is a lovely spot to catch the sunset. Not open for lunch

We got the red dragon roll, Hong roll and the Hawaiian roll...the red dragon had fresh tuna on top, this tuna was so fresh it melted in your mouth. Seriously the best Sushi I've had in a while. We say outside and watched the red sky across the marina. Just perfect! I wish we found this place sooner in our... More
