The Islander Food Shack is a bright yellow wooden shack that serves up good beach comfort food. As their sign says – it’s the place for “burgers, brews & seafood.”

Beachy, Casual Atmosphere at the Islander Food Shack

Come as you are! This very colorful spot is very casual. You can walk right up off the beach for a cool refreshing beer or some ice cream or stop by for dinner on your way back to your rental after a long day out on the water. Get your order to-go and eat in the comfort of your rental or dine-in (or out) on the deck under a shady umbrella or out on the large, covered porch. Stay in your comfortable beach casual vacation attire while you eat your fried seafood and sip on that bushwacker.

Beachy Comfort Food

Customer favorites at Islander Food Shack Florida include the white fish tacos and the bushwackers. Besides sodas, ice tea and lemonade, you can order wine, beer, and of course a Bushwacker or a Frozen Margarita.

Perfect for quick snacks, appetizers include calamari, Fried Plantains, Fried Mushrooms, Fried Crab Claws, Fried Pickles or Fried Avocado. The Jalapeno Poppers and Mini Jamaican Meat Pies are great to-go options for snacking as you stroll along the beach.

There are five ½ lb burgers to choose from including the classic Patty Melt and a Hawaiian Burger. Sandwich options include a Cuban, Ruben, Grouper Ruben, Grouper Sandwich, Shrimp or Oyster Po Boy, Lamb Sliders, and Grilled Cheese (with Munster, Gouda & Cheddar).
