If you want consistently good food The Knife is a good place to go. We regularly visit for great fillet steaks and pepper sauce. The price includes a steak of your choice, fries, corn and a sauce. Meat is really tender, service good. Nice ambience.

The Knife Restaurant is more of convenience. I stayed at the Crystall Towers and ate there one evening as it was raining and didn't want to walk to Canal Walk the mall. Food was good. They do not do room service but accommodated me with...More

Have had dinner here on numerous occasions. This time opted to have their burger. The patty was tasty and soft. There chips were absolutely outstanding. Not flowery like in many places really good. I love the onion rings too. Service was good.

Would have loved to help you on this one, Umaboody, but let the people at the Island Club phone them for you to find out! I have stayed at the Island Club several times and the people there are VERY nice and helpful!
