The food and service were great. The Hawaiian atmosphere really set the mood. You can sit inside or go out to the lanai and enjoye your food while viewing the swimming pool.

Hawaiian vibe overlooking a tropical view. The food is a nice mix of Asian inspired cuisine and american style classics. Casual and reasonably priced

My husband and I stayed at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and the Islands is one of their two onsite restaurants. We had breakfast and lunch at the Islands and both meals were very good.

For lunch, we ordered the burgers with fries. The burger was very good, much better than a fast-food offering, but the fries were amazing. Crispy, hot, with tender potato goodness inside.

Breakfast was tasty, as well. We both had the All American, eggs with a meat selection. My bacon was delcious--smoky and meaty. My husband had the sage sausage which I tasted and although I detected the sage, I felt the sausage was nothing special.

Service here is attentive and friendly, not fast. Although we were one of three-four parties dining, it still took awhile to get our food. The Islands friendly servers made up for it, however.

The cost of our meals was a bit high for breakfast and burgers but when you are too tired to go anywhere else, it's okay.
