Nothing prepared us for the LOUD crowd at the bar in this place. Even though we were seated at a booth quite a distance from the bar, between the TVs & the after-work crowd that congregated, we couldn't hear each other talk unless we yelled...More

Description
Fine, Family Dining. Islander has a beach theme with Jimmy Buffet tunes in the background. We have a raw bar for fresh shucked oysters on the half shell, tuna tartar and more. We have a steam room with individual kettles for lobster, crab clusters, mussels, peel $ eat shrimp. Our po-boys are made with real Gambino bread, brought in from New Orleans! Outdoor patio seating for dining, and outdoor seats at the bar are available. Islander Seafood and Oyster House is the perfect get away for a nights vacation!
