Absolutely fell in love with The Islander and all of it's employees. All of the bartenders (especially Aaron and Michelle) are amazing as well as the owner Rudy. It's a super fun environment with friendly and fast service, not to mention the yummy food and their amazing drink specials & seriously they have the BEST HAPPY HOUR EVER!!
We went in for dinner at 8:15 pm and asked for menus as soon as we sat down, order 2 drinks- Coors Lt $3 and a cranberry & rum, a Philly sandwich ($ 7) steak dinner ( $15.) We paid 45? before we got the food? Went to play a game of pool and half way threw the game was ask to see HIS ID , WHAT ? After he was served the beer. Salads came 30 minutes later and into the second game of pool we were TOLD to move from the table for more|" Important "guest to play there. When we were serve the salads , I asked for a coke - I never got it . I had to clear our salad plates and take them back to the bar. I watched the cook put our dinners in the window . I watched the clock. I watched the server talking to others . I watched our food getting cold . After 22 minutes in the window we finally were brought our food . It was slapped down on the table and half my onion rings landed on the floor. The server never came back to the table and we will never be going back there. They were RUDE , and when I spoke to the owners son "Mike " and why he didnt ask for my ID when he had the server ask for his, he yelled back at us and told us to get out.
First of all, I remember when the place first opened. Cheap drinks, great staff, and over all the A/C because thats the most important in the summer time to me. Drinking and being hot does not tend to mix well. SCAD scene on weekends however, its my favorite spot in the time I have been drinking. 39 Montgomery St. Savannah GA
