The Island Grille

Restaurant & Bar, Atlantic Beach NC

dine @ the Beach 

Set across the street from the Atlantic ocean, hidden @ the end of Money Island Drive, The Island Grille offers respite for the more discerning traveler. 

This is not a local fried fish establishment. We know there are MANY restaurants on the beach that get that right. Instead, we offer HYPER LOCAL, small batch dishes that are a modern take on honored traditions.

We understand that truly great food takes time to prepare. Our chef orders and butchers whole fish daily. Every dish is prepared by hand and  just for you.

But, if you know you are planning to dine with us while you are in town, its better to be safe than hungry. 

Please keep in mind that if you call during dinner on the busiest days of the week we may not get back to you until the next day. If you plan to call please call AHEAD!
