We had been here on a previous trip to the island and found the restaurant to be quite pleasant for lunch, so on this trip we though we would try them again. Our lunches were the fish po-boy sandwich (pictured) and the shrimp po-boy. we also sampled the Moonwhacker, which is a bushwhacker with a moon pie ground up in... More

Breakfast here was fine, better than the other places we tried on our visit to Dauphin Island. The Texas Toast is only ok and as someone else posted, only one piece of bread served with eggs. Relatively clean, again compared to the other places.

We had a great lunch and dessert at Islanders. We went to two places before Islanders and left because of the cleanliness and bad atmosphere. We found our way to Islanders and were very pleased! Great service, clean and good food. Probably nicest restaurant on Dauphin Island. Try the bread pudding for sure!

Visited twice during our month on the island. One time at the bar where we got good service. Food was okay....good casual island feel. Second time for dinner and the service at a table was very slow. Same food (seafood platter) was not near as good as first time. Very dry, overcooked fish. Would go back and sit at the... More

We went to this restaurant for dinner and breakfast. Neither meal was great. I have never had breakfast where an order of toast was 1 piece of bread. When I asked about it, they looked at me like I had two heads. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't good.

Wonderful restaurant with friendly staff and great food. Family owned and operated. Round room with wall to wall windows give great view of the Gulf and is spectacular at sunset. Great southern specialties. I asked about music gigs for a friend and left with a list of 4 places on the island that would be interested. Best location in Dauphin... More

Had a great lunch. And great service from Josh. Very personable and made it a good experience. The atmosphere was good and the view from the table tool in the gulf.

During our stay on Dauphin Island we didn't want to do a lot of driving and the Islanders was just down the road from where we were staying. We ate dinner one evening and lunch the next day. Both times the food was cooked to perfection, the service wonderful and the view just added to an already great time.

Tried this place for lunch when we were driving around on the island and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and service since some of the reviews weren't that good. However, we learned from our server that the restaurant was under new ownership and some of the menu items were no longer available and the wine list... More
