Ate here three times during my 9 day visit to Palau. The food is really good!! Everything from french toast to omelettes to the taco salad - very tasty and big portion sizes. Service is pretty fast. It's not super cheap, but Palau is an expensive place - this diner is great value for money. Highly recommend.

To be fair the staff are very pleasant and the place is busy so it must be me. I have never seen so many unnecessary calories being consumed. If you value your waist line or your cardiovascular health just go somewhere else.

My son and I visited two days in a row the fish was so good! Our first visit we ordered the half size nacho with meat, fried fish dinner, and French dip. Nachos were just okay. French dip was kind of skimpy but came with a ton of fries. The fried fish dinner was the winner! Ordered the red snapper... More

This restaurant looks like an American diner, but has not only pizzas and subs. They have lots of interesting Asian dishes, all kinds of meats and fish. Also, reasonably priced ($8-15 per meal). Food is tasty and portions are big. Servers are well trained. Overall very good experience.

The servers always get my order right and last weekend when it was pouring down hard!they made my pizza the way they like it. The prices here is fair because off the size of the dish. Nice place to chow and relax.

I had the best pizza here. I had tried pizzas at other places in Koror, but give Rock Island Cafe a thumbs up on the service and pizza.

If you want to have dinner American diner style that's the place to go. It feels like a diner and the food is decent. We had burgers, which were OK. Our waitress could have been a more friendly and attentive.

Quite a long menu of American and Asian classics. I went for a sirloin steak. It was very hard to chew. It arrived with cooked corn and rice, just served there like balls next to the steak. No imagination at all. Nice staff though.

Just visited this place last month. I tried their sausages that's supposed to be served with sauerkraut, but unfortunately it was not available. My fiance tried their set of stewed beef with rice, while her friend got the six inch pizza. For beverages, we tried their soda float, which was average. Price range is $20-$30 plus service. Restaurant service was... More

Pizza, burgers, sandwiches. The food here is your typical US fare. It's popular with the locals who want US fast food.
