This is a very good burger place. There were eight of us and seven enjoyed their burgers. Me, the vegetarian, did not like the veggie burger. It didn't seem to have been made in house. It looked like the ones found in the frozen food section of the market. Nice selection of non alcoholic drinks. Check website for alcoholic drinks,... More

Traditional but ordinary American food.The bar staff are great with cocktails and the late nights are really good. Worth a visit.

Had Caesar with Chicken and Tiki Tenders (Crispy Chicken). Popped in after reading reviews and whilst no problems, didn't really have any stand-out aspects. Strawberry Daiquiri was good and the food OK but was, for us, a safe rather than a special choice of eateries as we toured round West California. In fairness and perhaps the deciding reason for 3...

Feels very "aloha". The food is good and fresh. A good value for the money. Very casual and a great place for kids.

Seated in the bar area, really nice chilled out atmosphere, our server was really friendly, had american football on the TV's and draft beers on happy hour. Had chicken tenders to share and a burger each, the food was lovely, easily one of the best meals we had on holiday. Would return if we were in the area again.

This, for me, is the burger bar in Venice. Unusually the pics of the food are exactly what you get. They are really stacked and the fries are crispy, and not thin. Love this place Oh and try the Buffalo wings, very very good.

Stopped by for a bite to eat on a Saturday night and were surprised to be able to get a table at the bar (so we didn't have to wait) there were three of us. The chinese chicken salad was great, I wanted a healthier option rather than the typical burger and it didn't disappoint. Friends had nachos which we... More

I'm not a fan of publicly bad reviews, but I'm going to this time. This is my 3rd or 4th visit to this Islands Restaurant. The last time I complained to corporate about the service and was contacted by district manager and I thought issue was resolved. But service was still lacking. We had to wait about 10 min or...

Having just arrived in the US we ended up in Islands as it was conveniently located from our AirBnB apartment in Marina del Rey. Drinks were served in frosted glasses so extra cold. Atmosphere was relaxed with normal people inside; we got talking to some of the locals and staff so that made it feel like a proper local which... More

We have eaten at Island for years. From LA to San Diego. We ate here recently and the fries were terrible and so was the burger. Both didn't have any flavor. The fries tasted like that had been coated in a batter. Didn't taste like potatoes maybe GMO. Have they changed some of their ingredients? This is the second Islands... More
