Everything was great, except they can't make seating for over 9 and that bench is a tight fight. It's not a comfortable one

After we were seated at a dirty table that had to be wiped down we waited a good 20 minutes for waitress to acknowledge us and that was only after pestering a hostess to find her for us. Also they have changed their menu so that they can nickel and dime you for everything you don’t even get fries for $12 with your $12-13 burger! Mediocre food overpriced

I forgot how much I LOVE the tortilla soup here! One of the best soups... for sure!

A big shout out to Ronny our server and Allison the manager at Island restaurant in Corona. The burgers and fries we had this afternoon were absolutely delicious. Thank you Ronny for your attentiveness and thank you Allison for your quick response to my concern about the drink I ordered. The Watermelon Margarita you brought me was great and refreshing. Great job you guys. Cheers, Frank

The burgers at this particular one were overdone and dry, the service was ok but not very attentive. They brought the food out very quickly. So quick that the main course came before the appetizers and I had to remind them. And not taking the used plates and glasses away made the table uncomfortably filled So I ended up shuffling the plates to another empty table.. for a casual dining place it was quite expensive.

This used to be one of my favorites. Great burgers and endless fries but it is no more. Kilauea burger is $13.95 and fries $6.95 and a drink? Fries are not bottomless. Burgers at that price well they're not that good. $50+ for two people to have lunch? It's only a matter of time. Disappointed

Service was good. They have a gluten free menu with a variety of options: burgers, chicken, salad, tacos, fries, tortilla chips. Gluten free hamburger buns are also soy free. Got there at 11:30 on a Sunday morning and they were not crowded.

Good food and nice service. Go here once every two months. Recommend kileau with the veggie patty-it is really good but meat makes it too heavy

Was put next to people instead of spread out to maintain any social distancing...and there was plenty of room to spread people out. Service wasn't horrible, but wasn't really good either. Had to stop them to ask for things and they would forget until later when I asked again. Hamburger was good. No more bottomless fries ?. Menu changed. Some items no longer on menu. Almost 20 per adult and 7 per child, plus tax and tip for the price we paid for two adults and two children, not likely to return anymore. Would have paid under or a little over half for more food and quality else where or if the same range definitely more food. Over all, not satisfied.

Horrible experience. Hamburgers were raw and service was lacking. When we complained about the raw burgers, our check was dropped on the table and the server disappeared. Oh, it is was nowhere near being busy.

We're on a vacation from Texas, originally from Cali. We miss our Islands so of course we had to come! Jessica was our server, and she was amazing! Definitely recommend!

Sunday 4pm ordered online, pickup was to be at 4:15, get to the restaurant and the staff was a rude as the food was bad. cold burgers cold fries. we have been supporting local places since the time covid started. today let me know that this place does not want nor deserve our business. I will share this experience with the many people we know in the city. too bad we did like their food at one time.

Islands has ALWAYS been a favorite of my husbands and mine. Ever since we were kids. His sister used to work at the one in Montclair and my sister's 1st boyfriend worked at the one in Chino, so needless to say..we went A LOT. We got a little weekend to ourselves and after running errands all day, decided to travel back in time to one our favorite little places. Annnd..its still the same! But better, they don't have to wear those God awful Hawaiian shirts they used to have to wear and I'm sure it's been a while since then. But that's how long it's been since we've visited/lived even remotely close to one. Now that we're about 2 1/2 miles away from this one, it is really hard to not want to go back right away. The ambiance is still the same, surfing channels in the background, fun atmosphere, all the birds and surfboards still surrounding you, I love and have missed it so.. Sooo, what we decided to get was super simple. Cheese fries LOADED with cheese and topped with green onions. Beyond delicious and cheesy and right up our alley. Trying oh so hard not to get ridiculously full on just the fries, I had ordered the Malibu (Bacon Cheeseburger) sans the fries and my husband had gotten the Hula (Mushroom Swiss) with a beautiful abundance of mushrooms. Our burgers were cooked to perfection. My Malibu was just a perfect, simple and easy bacon cheeseburger. TONS of mustard and I do love my mustard, but might opt for the 1000 island or maybe some mayo and mustard next time. Regardless, it was delicious! My husbands Hula was THE mushroom swiss burger that you want to see when a burger is placed in front of you. He was going to only eat half, but yea, we both knew that was not going to happen lol. He finished that bad boy and I had my half to take home, doesn't mean I didn't finish it soon after I got back.. Sabrina was our server and was super sweet. What's even better, is all the help from the staff in case anyone was behind. How it should be. I love when everyone lends a helping hand whether it's their table or not. Needless to say, we will be back, over and over again. I can't wait to take my son and introduce him to this wonderful burger place that my husband and I have come to know and love since we were kids. Thank you Islands for still being as good as you've always been!

First time to this location. Second visit to an Islands restaurant. 1st location was in Orange on Tustin Ave. Not impressed either time. I went with friends who are locals. They seen to enjoy Islands. Not sure why with all the selections of restaurants at your finger tips. Next time they suggest Islands I'm speaking up & requesting we go someplace else. I ordered a mojito & the Chicken Beach Bowl. Apparently the bartender hasn't been trained to make a mojito or doesn't like making them. Everything was poured in glass with whole mint leaves thrown on top. It did not taste like a mojito. I copied & pasted description = Grilled chicken, topped w/fresh grilled pineapple, red bell peppers, snow peas, water chestnuts, red onions, broccoli & diced scallions w/teriyaki or hoisin sauce, served over brown rice. I asked for hoisin sauce & no red bell pepper. Server said they no longer have hoisin sauce. I told her I'd take teriyaki sauce then. When my bowl arrived I had no teriyaki sauce the portion of chicken was less than 1/2 cup, Two small pieces of broccoli, no water chestnuts or scallions, 1 snow pea. There were a lot of red onion, 6 small slivers of red bell pepper & 5 small pieces of pineapple on top of 1 cup of rice. I assumed the bowl was served hot. It was all room temperature. The chicken & rice were not even warm. I ate everything in my bowl & was still hungry. This was not a filling meal. My friend & I arrived a little after her daughter & family had been seated. There were hostesses we said we were with the Thompson party. They said we don't have names just wander around & see if you can find them. My friend looked a bit then texted to see where they were seated. When we sat the server was delivering a beer & glass of wine. She didn't ask us if we wanted anything to drink. They were very busy & took a while for server to take our drink order. We had 4 adult, a 5 yr & 2 1/2 yr old kids. Their Mom ordered their meals when we ordered our drinks as it was a wait. We were sunrises when the kids meals arrived. One had Mac & cheese that was out of the Kraft box with a pod of apple sauce. They had a soup spoon in his basket to eat it with. Way to big for a child. The second kid meal was for the 2 1/2 yr old grilled cheese & fries. The bread was really thick not the average sandwich slice. So was hard for him to eat. Their mom had to ask several times for the boys apple juices & water before it arrived. Two wine glasses & beer mug were sitting at edge of table so we had room for our meals. We finally asked one of the servers passing by to clear them. On one came by to check to see how our food was or if we needed anything after meals came out. My friends had the beach bowl how also wanted hoisin sauce & with out water chestnuts. Fish tacos with onion rings & Big Wave Burger with truffle fries. When we left my friend asked how my beach bowl was. I told her I was surprised it wasn't served hot. It was room temp. She said they are suppose to be hot. Oh well
