The food was just okay and a little overpriced. The service was superb, and the restaurant was clean.

Before or after a movie. Good food, service, drinks, tacos burgers, and best of all fries. I eat here a lot for a great burger.

We were there tonight after a long day of travel. We really wanted a good burger and I must say we were extremely disappointed. I expected something a little thicker and juicier. The service was great. The salad was great. Sorry I can't give it more.

This is a nice chain Burger place and the Surf motif is perfect for So Cal. There were a number of choices for burgers and sides. The bun was good, the tomato and lettuce fresh, and the meat tasty. What was a nice surprise was a couple of local breweries on the beer list. Good food, local brew, and a... More

We were in the area and decided that since we have never ate at the Islands restaurant that we were up to see how this burger place was. I have to say that my burger was great. It was full of flavor and I didn't have any complaints. I had a cold beer and it came quickly to the table.... More

We had dinner and breakfast at this restaurant. Both were good, but a little pricey. The service is great, and the atmosphere, for a hotel restaurant, is pretty good, especially with tables that have a view overlooking the pool. We did not choose the breakfast buffet, because, while it is faster, we thought we got better value by just ordering... More
