“Good atmosphere, fresh food”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

After a long flight, a quick visit to Manhattan Beach on a bus tour we stopped at this complex to have some refreshment. It looked good and inviting. We went for a drink and whilst there decided to eat. We had wraps and a burger. Both were really great, and service was very quick and friendly. Overall cost including 3 beers $44. Good value!!

“First taste of Paradise”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

we got a shuttle from the airport to the manhatten village shopping centre and stumbled across Islands, well , what a find , the place was so nice , service with a smile and very quick, we were asked if we would like to sit in or outside and we chose to sit outside , we were given menus and the lovely girl left us long enough to chose , as I hate it while they stand there with pen in hand watching you chose, so we ordered and our drinks arrived quick I ordered a strawberry smoothie and it was to die for , my husband had a beer was from their micro brewery which he really enjoyed , we ordered 2 burgers his was the kilavea so delicious but if you order this be aware its peppery hot which he loved , I ordered a Maui burger mine too was delicious , so I highly recommend to stop here , loved it all oh and the fries were cooked to perfection all the food was none greasy.this was our first taste of a real American burger and one we found we could not match....this really is worth going to please put it on your place to eat list.......

“Stop Here for a Drink or Full Meal”
Reviewed 5 November 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Malls are a challenge, especially on the West Side. Islands is the perfect place for a family or the "non-shopping" spouse to rest, relax watch a game then entertain the rest of the family with a great meal and good wine or beer. One of the best values for keeping peace in the family and enjoying good food and fellowship, especially for USC fans at the bar!

“Affordable lunch specials”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Pretty good burger place. Fries bottomless, but inconsistent, overdone a lot of the time. I actually prefer their chicken sandwiches vs the burgers.
