I found this and I had to post. I remember the Islander Resturant building as a kid. We lived not far from it and I saw it evertime we turned onto Pacific Ave. It was already closed and empty when I was a kid but I remember the building very well. It kind of stuck out from everything else around it. I also remember being very upset when they moved it away. However we did eat at the Chicken Kitchen every so often. I remember I liked to eat inside the covered wagon. I would make my parents ask to sit in it if it was empty. But I have to say that I owe something to the Islander. Let's just say that I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for the Islander. It was one of my parents' favorite resturants before I was born. It played a part in the way they met. Thank you Islander. You are the reason I am here.

Hello - Yes I went to the Stockton Islander several times in the '70's. My Uncle used to bring his two sons out for every summer when we were 12-16 and the whole family went. They always had a cool floor show. I remember The Ink Spots played there and a few other old time groups. I still have a few of the mugs including the Skull and a few of the Tiki types.
