Panko Encrusted Flounder

It's hard to pick a favorite as I have not yet tried everything on the menu! The fish, whether it is the ahi ahi or flounder or salmon, always puts a smile on my face. The soups and salads are a nice start to the meal, along with the Baked Brie with Mango Chutney. Don't get be started with the desserts...

Grouper Piccata

Excellent grouper! I also wanted try the homemade pasta so I ordered a side of linguini a la carte with a red pepper flake olive oil sauce. The chef prepared it perfectly.

10 oz. Ribeye Diane

I actually had a special dish not listed on the menu (boneless ribs). The ribs were amazingly tender and flavorful. The atmosphere was welcoming and magnificent and our seating was just a few feet from the gulf shoreline. The staff were friendly and engaging. We left feeling not like customers, but as new friends. We look forward to our next visit.

Lobster Ravioli

The lobster ravioli is to die for! The first time I had them, they were a special appetizer. But those little homemade bites of lobster, leek, and cream deliciousness were so astoundingly awesome they were added to the permanent menu-much to my ever lasting delight! I can't wait until my next trip to Cedar Key; which means my next visit to Island Room Restaurant&Sandbar where I enjoy the fine food and service.

Duck Confit

Sunday Brunch is best at The Island Room! Today I had the Salmon Confit Hash (the duck is also good) with 2 eggs, asparagus, and a wonderful piece of fresh, thick toast. It was delicious to say the least. We were seated by the window and had a great view. The staff was always smiling and around if we needed anything.

Definitely our favorite restaurant on the island- love the atmosphere and wonderful staff. My husbands favorite dish is the shrimp scampi pasta cooked just right every time and I love the scallops with amazing orange glaze that's offered as a special some nights.

Grouper Piccata

IF I am ever so fortunate as to return to the Island Room, I am going to say, "Welcome Home and HELLO Grouper Piccata!" This entree was the best I have ever had. The Gulf grouper was prepared to perfection. The sauce was light and flavorful. The staff at the Island Room was so friendly, the Chef even came out to check on us, made us feel so special. Thank you.

Shrimp Scampi Over Linguine

The freshest shrimp! Very tasty white wine and garlic sauce over the homemade linguine. The chef is very accommodating. He eliminated the cream for me. Fortunately we live in Gainesville and can be back often.

10 oz. Ribeye Diane

We spent 4 days at the Cedar Cove condos and heard from the locals about this little spot called the Island Room. So we decided to give it a try. What we found was a beautiful waterfront dining experience. My steak was cooked perfectly and my husbands short ribs were out of this world juicy and loaded with flavor. The bartender, which happens to be the chef's wife, is bubbly and very accommodating. So much so that we ended up eating at the bar! This place has it all! Scrumptious food, awesome drinks and friendly service! Be sure to visit the Island Room at Cedar Cove! Just what we needed to get off of the grid! Mortician Dianne and Police Officer Karl. WE'LL BE BACK!!!
