Had the special of the day which was Mexican. The pulled pork enchiladas were very good. The service was fast and courteous.

The food is ok, the service is so so , we got the wrong dish. It is on an island, but do not expect views.

“August 24, 2014”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014 via mobile

My husband and I stayed the night in Golden on our way back to Calgary. We looked up on trip advisor where good places to eat were. The Island Restaurant came up third on list....it should be first!!
This restaurant is a true culinary joy. The waitress we had was awesome - very friendly and very attentive- very personal and good at her job!! We were the only ones on the upper patio at first but more people came soon enough. It is right along the river and we saw a raft go by while we were eating. The food was fresh and very flavorful. We had the potato soup and boccocini salad for our appetizers - both FANTASTIC!!! I had the caramelized halibut and my husband had bison...again, both were FANTASTIC!! Dessert was heavenly, the atmosphere is awesome. This is a MUST STOP if you are going through Golden, BC!! Four thumbs up!! :-)

“Tasty lunch and nice view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Banff. We saw it had good reviews on TA which is why we chose it. Food was fresh and made to order. Service was friendly and although my order was incorrect and had to be sent back, server was super apologetic and took 20% off for mistake. Kitchen was very attentive to allergies and took care to ensure I didn't eat something I wasn't supposed to. Was impressed that kids pasta was homemade noodles. We sat outside on deck. Great view of river. Enjoyed watching rafting groups go by. Really enjoyable lunch. Would return if passing through again.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

We stopped for a late lunch after spending the day riding around the Moonraker trails. We stopped more for the big patio by the river and thought we would give the food a try. We were not disappointed in the least! We ordered the BBQ chicken pizza and the enchilada, which were on special. Both were very good. The pizza was just the right size and the enchilada was just a bit too much. I always eat too much when I get something that tastes that amazing. I left feeling over stuffed but very satisfied. We will head back again before we leave. The prices are very, very gods for the quality of food.
