Our car club visited Cedar Key (all 22 of us) and ate dinner here. Poor service and cold food, and we were the only ones in the dining room! Guess the 18% guarenteed tip made for laziness and poor attitude.

Great food terrific service. Seafood dishes my wife and I had were A+. Pasta home made every day and you could tell. Deserts were also outstanding. Prices were very affordable for quality we received. We are definitely going back again.

This is the second time for me that we've been told the chef was overwhelmed. I was there with friends last summer for dinner. Very few people dining. Extremely slow service. We were told the chef was overwhelmed with diners that night The place was nearly empty????? We attempted to go there for breakfast this past Sunday. The waiter wouldn't... More

We had an excellent meal here for the second time. This time I had and escargot and crab stuffed mushrooms to share as appetizers. Then we enjoyed very thick lamb chops. The service was good and the seating was very comfortable. This is a very nice place to enjoy a good dining experience.

We liked this place, compared to many on the island, in terms of cleanliness and atmosphere. The food was average, maybe a little above average, but then we are quite picky. They don't serve the usual island fare of fried food, but instead concentrate on a more varied menu, with sauces and additions. Good selection of seafood, and the chef... More

This is a place you will not want to miss when you are in Cedar Key. We stay in Cedar Key often and always make it to The Island Room several times a week. Great specials! Great fresh clams! (fresh everything) Super service! Welcoming place for a special meal... Or just stop for a snack...a drink and the gulf view!

Love this low key gem of an upscale restaurant. We visit Cedar Key often and Island Room never disappoints. Tablecloths and cloth napkins, friendly and professional staff, perfected small menu. The appetizer sampler is perfect for 2. You'll never go wrong with any of the seafood...even fried (super light). Salads are fancy baby greens served cold. House wines are decent.... More

I literally grew up eating at the Island Room. My parents always made sure to stop in at least once every time they vacationed at Cedar Key, and now I carry on that tradition. It's easily the most delicious food you'll find in town, but I wouldn't go with the intention of being in and out in an hour. The... More

The food was excellent and the restaurant was cozy and comfortable. It is located right on the water and views are awesome. I had steamers and the heart of palm salad. The dressing was outstanding!

Thankfully my wife and I were referred to The Island Room by the manager, Tina (I believe) at the Island Place Cedar Key condominiums. Food was delicious…….starting with fresh stone crab claws as an appetizer, fresh local fish, in house made fresh pasta. And some great fresh baked rolls. Nice balance of young eager waitstaff that didn't hesitate to say…."I'm... More
