    I think it's Firestone Walker.

    Just asked the bartender and she said FW. Totally shocked she knew.
  4. yeah but holy crap is their food mediocre. Went in there the other day with my girlfriend...I had a Ruthless Rye and she had the Island's Blonde. The beers were good (except for being served in frosty mugs), and that's about it

    If they're even still on the menu (it's been that long) the yaki tacos and the blue cheese burger were the only two palatable things.

    I was born and raised in Huntington, you guys are goddamn food snobs if you honk they're food is shitty. They're not the best in the world, but they have good burgers.
  7. My experience is that Islands are highly variable, both between restaurants and within restaurants.

    In all honesty do you really expect that much from Islands? It is what it is

    Their cheddar fries were a favorite of mine!
  10. Hell yes they do! That one with crispy onions and some kind of spicy sauce is 1500 calories of pure heaven.
