Read several great recommendations before trying this hotel/restaurant. I agree with the reviewers. Well presented entrees in a quiet yet elegant location in a turn of the century historic building. Portions are appropriate and seasonings reflect a well trained chef.

The Island Hotel is historic in Cedar Key. The food in the Island room is very good. The crab bisque was my favorite. Check out the history of this hotel as well as the town. Will definitely return.

The food, drink and service were all pretty good. However, because the lovely waitresses were way too busy ( rushing around to serve everyone and bussing tables), the atmosphere was not relaxing.

As written above, the restaurant is open evenings and is upscale. Food is good for the price - not pricey. No Idea regarding the hotel or its policy on dogs.......
