Had a lovely meal. The vibe was great and the food was good. Menu has a good variety and reasonably priced. Service was good in the beginning of the evening but waitress forgot about us.

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!
