Islands is a great chain of restaurants for hamburgers but they also offer other items including tacos and chicken sandwiches. The decor is what you expect from a restaurant named islands and is quite pleasing. Service is good and the do have a bar. Try the big wave burger.

Staff seems aware and on top of things. Burgers are fine, just full of sauce. Sports on all tv's throughout the Hawaiian themed dining room.

Nice relaxing spot for an easy lunch. Service was friendly and the food a bit better than average. My burger was a bit dry actually. The french fries were good as was the salad, I will give this place another shot!

Love their chicken sandwiches. They improved the buns used on them this last time we went. Tacos were a hit with the group Chips with gauc and salsa wasnt that great. Chips had a off taste and salsa tasted like it was from a jar Fries as always were flavorful.

I'd come back because it's a unique and fun place to eat, with some island-theme meals that you definitely won't find other places. Plenty of parking. If the service were even close to good, this place could easily be 4-5 stars.

I love Islands! One of my favs (Maybe it's the bottomless fries? haha) Great passion iced tea too! Service is always good. Beach/island themed, usually have surfing or water sports on the TVs. Check out their happy hour too.

One of the best burgers I've ever had. The kids meals were very good as well. The chicken tenders were good quality and freshly cooked. It was a Saturday night and busy but we were seated quickly. However, the service from that point was sub par. Our waitress didn't seem interested in us and at best was flippant in her... More

There are Islands restaurants all over Southern California serving great food and drinks. The restaurants are casual and the service is great. If you have been to one you know about this already. If not, be sure and try one soon.

I drove past In and Out Burger and stopped at Islands...and I'm so glad I did! I had their signature cheeseburger and fries. The burger was made to order, had a great taste, and all the condiments were fresh. Then there were the fries--WOW! They were crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, and had a flavor that...
