Islands Summer Happy Hour Menu

Burgers and Fries oh my!  When it comes to summertime that is what I think of, eating a juicy burger and crispy fries. I was invited to Islands for a menu tasting of the new summer happy hour menu.  The new menu debuts Monday June 16, 2014 and offered in the bar Monday - Friday 3 - 7 pm and Sunday-Thursday 9 pm until closing.

Some menu items are exclusive for the summer time only, like the Hawaiian Sliders with fresh pineapple and Islands special teriyaki sauce.  I have to admit warm pineapple on savory food is not my favorite.  But these little sliders were the bomb.com (yes I went there). LOL  The meat is tender and the flavors all blend so well together.  These sliders are a winner, make sure to try them before the summer menu goes away.

The usual happy hour menu items are still available and you can't go wrong with the classics like buffalo wings. If you are trying to stay on the healthy side, did you know Islands also has salads and soups.

Now lets talk about the summertime drinks.  Islands has an extensive bar menu and special summer drinks. If your like me and not a beer drinker, these tropical and fruity drinks are perfect. Tasty and refreshing drinks pair up perfectly with your burger and fries.

Mai Tai

Makaha Margarita

Hand Shaken Strawberry Daiquiri
Spicy Mango Shandy

I was able to taste all the drinks except the Mai Tai, and all of them are really good.  I personally liked the Hapa Bourbon Tea and Spicy Mango Shandy the best, while my boyfriend loved the Makaha Margarita which is made with pineapple infused tequila by Islands bartenders.  So next time your ready for happy hour make sure to check out Islands and try out the summer menu before its gone.
