Built in 1954, Island House was just that...a charming, sturdy house near Bonita Springs’ white sandy beaches. After time, the owners opened a beauty salon at the front of the house. As the business grew, they saw an opportunity to sell hot dogs and ice-cold beer to add to the experience. And they were so tasty, people started stopping at the patio just for the hot dogs and beer. This was how Island House Cafe came to be. Over the years the menu expanded to include — salads, burgers, sandwiches, wings and Island House’s favorite, pizza! Locals and visitors alike love the comfortable Old Florida charm, delicious food and live music.

When the time came for the original owners to retire, they wanted to find the right people to carry on the Island House traditions. Enter the new owners, who also are partners of North Naples Country Club. Committed to carrying on Island House traditions – they are keeping favorites like homemade Chicago-style pizza and specialty hot dogs - while adding specialty sandwiches, salads, bites & sauces and in 2022...seafood, po’ boys, and from scratch sides. Plus, Island House is proud to offer fresh produce and ingredients from Florida’s local farms too.

And they’ve added to the Florida charm with a “take a book - leave a book” library for beach reading, expanded the “Porch” to comfortably seat more guests and added watering stations so your doggie can enjoy an ice-cold drink too!
