Would you like to take your friends or family on vacation for dinner tonight? You've come to the right place! Zeke's Island Cafe is your island getaway right around the corner. We feature flavors from islands all over the world including: Jamaica, Hawaii and the Pacific Islands. After years of receiving cooking lessons from island natives, plus trial and error, we opened the restaurant in 2014 and created our menu. Iowa locals who are originally from the islands also inspire the menu, adding to the culture Zeke's is hoping to create in Bettendorf, IA.

All of our dishes are made fresh in-house daily and we make all of our gluten-free spices. Choose from a wide variety of items including our most popular choices: The Big Kahuna Nachos, Caribbean Tacos and Jerk Chicken.
