Slow Roasted Pork Shank

The pork shank was fabulous! Tender, succulent, and bathed in a delicious sauce. It was served with roasted potatoes and carrots, with cauliflower and broccoli on the side. Our party also ordered the Seafood Cardinale, Duck Confit, and Snapper; all huge hits! Finished up with Bread Pudding. Cannot wait to go back to the Island Room.

Broiled Garlic Oysters

We were a foursome on April 30, & it had been 7 years since our last Cedar Key vacation. The Island Room is a standard when we visit. Lovely new remodeled dining room. We made reservations for a table on the porch because it was my husband's birthday. Everything - broiled garlic oysters, crab bisque, Grouper Savannah (an old menu favorite we mentioned & staff graciously offered as an option),crab cakes, wine & desserts were spectacular! Even the spaghetti squash side was AMAZING! Service was friendly & attentive. This place is part of what we look forward to on our Cedar Key trips. Never disappointed. Thanks Tony & staff

Duck Confit

This is my husband's favorite and Peter knows how to prepare duck confit to perfection. Every year I have a difficult time getting him to try something else because he cannot resist this dish. The duck is very moist, flavorable and literally falls off the bone. We've travelled a lot and this is the best he's ever had.

The best part about eating here is that they never disappoint. The bruschetta is our favorite appetizer and we cannot resist having it before we order our dinner.

Grouper Piccata

On one of our last visits I had Snapper Picatta as they were out of Grouper. It was very good and I would ask for it again even if the Grouper is available. Eating at the Island Room is always a highlight of coming to Cedar Key and continues to be our favorite on the island.

Lobster Ravioli

It was light and creamy and the leeks added a nice background flavor. I don't know if the ravioli was house-made but it tasted like it was and the lobster was incredible. I've eaten out at almost every restaurant, pub and diner on Cedar Key over the last few years and this was my favorite dish!

Grilled Shrimp Royale

This is one of my favorite dishes. The shrimp is always done to perfection, being grilled with a slight crunch to them. The roasted veggies that accompany the shrimp and rice are some of the best I've ever had.

Duck Confit

My fiancé and I had a lovely dinner here last night. This is a jewel hidden amongst all the many seafood restaurants. We believe the chef is French trained and possibly of Italian descent. We started with escargot served in puff pastry with garlic butter-which paired perfectly with the Pinot noir we were sipping. Next grilled andouille sausage with course ground mustard. I had duck confit, so tender, no knife needed. Prepared in the classic French tradition with a scrumptious brown sauce. My duck was complimented with potatoes Au gratin. These are not your mother's cheesy potatoes. Each slice of potato was carefully layered with cheese with just the right amount of crispiness atop. My veggies were steamed broccoli and cauliflower garnished with collard greens. I typically stay away from steamed vegetable medleys. As they are usually bland mush. Not these, soft yet crisp, flavorful and collards cooked perfectly. This is quite a compliment as I am from South Georgia and take a tremendous amount of pride in my collards. My fiancé had braised short ribs served Ragu style with homemade fettuccine. Now the dessert: homemade hot bread pudding served with bourbon sauce, absolutely decadent with warm spices and pecans. I have never had better even in New Orleans. Do yourself a favor and try this hidden gem. You will not regret the choice, I promise!
