We had dinner at Island Cafe and enjoyed the food and the service was friendly and attentive. We liked it enough to return for our breakfast the next morning.

We enjoyed a very good breakfast, fast service, pleasant servers, nice big cups of coffee that were refilled without us asking. We enjoyed the retro friendly atmosphere. We stayed at the Everglades City Motel next door which was just steps away.

We had good service and reasonable prices. I had the fried shrimp, Sooo Goood! My wife wanted a cheeseburger, she thought it was good as well. Would recommend Island Cafe to fellow travelers as a good experience and a good value.

Our visit to Everglades City reveal that they had been hit hard by the recent hurricane. Only place we found open for lunch was this one. Both had burgers for lunch. Really good burgers and fries.

The selection was minimal and the servings were super small. The staff was rude. Overall, very disappointing. Next time, we would travel further.

Food was pretty standard but tasty. Obviously the place to go, indeed maybe the only place to go, around here. Busy.
