I lived in Indialantic for many years and have a lot of favorite restaurants in that small oceanfront town. Some are more favorite than others, and Islands Fish Grill is in that category.
This small restaurant fronts on busy 5th Avenue (US-192) in Indialantic and the parking lot is behind the building on 6th Avenue.
Most people enter through the back door of the restaurant and that's where the adventure begins.
Once inside, you will feel at home in this cozy place with two separate dining rooms. This place is so good I recommend you start out with one of their great appetizers.
These include Spicy Thai Chill Shrimp, Oysters, Mussels, and Crab Cake Caprese.
They also have a nice selection of soups and salads if that's the way you like to go.
The entrees are fantastic in this small place.
Since seafood is in their name, there are the expected treasures like Onion Crusted Grouper, Scallops and Shrimp seasoned with garlic and butter, Mussels, Crab and Shrimp Fettuccine, and the Crab Cake Caprese Entree.
They always have the fresh catch of the day and you can have it prepared any way you like: grilled, jerked or cajun, blackened and more.
Landlubbers are not forgotten either. You can get Mesquite Grilled Chicken and a Filet Mignon.
All entrees come with choice of side orders including vegetables, fried spinach, house cut fries and smoked Brussels sprouts.
My server was friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable. I had a combination shrimp and scallop dinner and it was great. The house Chardonnay was excellent.
I will certainly go back again when I'm in town. Islands Fish Grill is open Monday through Saturday from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm and closed on Sunday.
I was able to walk in and get a table for one, but seeing the busy tables around me with large parties makes me suggest making a reservation.
