Had a great lunch. And great service from Josh. Very personable and made it a good experience. The atmosphere was good and the view from the table tool in the gulf.

During our stay on Dauphin Island we didn't want to do a lot of driving and the Islanders was just down the road from where we were staying. We ate dinner one evening and lunch the next day. Both times the food was cooked to perfection, the service wonderful and the view just added to an already great time.

Tried this place for lunch when we were driving around on the island and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and service since some of the reviews weren't that good. However, we learned from our server that the restaurant was under new ownership and some of the menu items were no longer available and the wine list... More

This restaurant has changed ownership several times throughout the years so I was unsure what to expect with this visit. Happily, the establishment is back to cloth table covers as opposed to paper. Our server was attentive and pleasant along with being the owner's sister. I ordered blackened red snapper. It was perfectly prepared and not TOO spicy. Side dishes... More

The Islander is the only restaurant I can find here which is open every day. Service is pretty good, friendly and helpful, bread pudding is delicious. I had oyster loaf and it was fantastic. Fried oysters here are perfect.

My wife and I had a margarita. The worst margarita ever. The catch of the day was NOT better either. The calamari was not that bad. The spinach dip was Not that bad, but the chip tasted like 100 yrs old. We came all the way from Memphis, TN. Would not recommend this place to anybody, unless you want to... More

Dining with family and friends and had the Surf and Turf dinner special. It was excellent! The marinated steak was delicious as well as the home made broccoli salad. Gumbo is a must have. Will definitely be back!

We have been here a couple times and will be back. Lovely porch, and nice indoor room. Good service. Very good lunches, but THIS IS THE PLACE FOR DESSERT. Save room!

We needed a family friendly place with a variety of food that was open at 7 pm and not a 30 minute drive. The food was very good and the service was very friendly. They were out of a few things but I think because they were one of few places open that night they were very busy.
