I like this place - it's a little hideaway with down home caribbean food. I had the BBQ chicken and Mac and cheese and I was STUFFED! It's a bit overprice but with the changing neighborhood, they will be around for a while. I enjoyed the friendly people and laid back atmosphere. If you want some real island food, stop on by Islands!

I find the food inconsistent. The barbacued chicken is sometimes good and other times comes with a watery sauce which is worse than canned. Most dishes are warmed by microwave as is the fried chicken which has a fish odor from the oil in which it is fried. Dishes are overpriced relative to quality and neighborhood competition.

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING. don't come here if you want fast food. the food is SLOW-COOKED AND ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!! best jerk chicken and mac and cheese. the ambience is great. and the staff there is soooooooooo friendly and helpful. like real down-home style. we waited about an hour for our food but it was worth every second. and the prices were soooo good! i'll be back again and again and again!

Pros: delicious, great service, great atmosphere

Islands is a teeny tiny place with a counter and 3 stools, and a ridiculously steep little staircase leading to a small but cozy 2nd floor with about 4-5 tables. The food is simple, and simply good. Subtle and interesting tastes in the main dishes and the accompanying sides. Everything has that homemade quality, but a cut above. The staff is friendly and welcoming, and neighborhood regulars drop in to say "hi". Air America can be heard on the radio much of the time. A definite find across the street from the newly fabulously renovated Brooklyn Museum.
