Bob and Grace Milton opened Misty’s restaurant in 1963. As their business became more successful they opened Misty’s II Pub and Grub across the street in 1975 to accommodate their growing clientele serving a menu revolving around steak and prime rib. In 1976, Misty’s caught on fire which resulted in them using Misty’s II as their main restaurant until Misty’s could be rebuilt. In 1977 they removed the original kitchen out of Misty’s II and replaced it with a dance floor and changed the name to Misty’s Isles. In 1981, a pizza kitchen was added and the name changed to Misty Italiano’s. In 1984, Dave Cole, a bartender at Misty’s purchased Misty Italiano’s. Dave and his staff spent many painstaking hours working on creating the perfect sauce with just the right amount of flavor and seasoning that would be a crowd favorite yet still be original. The name remained the same for a year and a half before holding a contest to come up with a new name to better define the business – The Isles Pub and Pizza or as most people call it “The Isles”.
The Isles has seen many changes over the years. The dance floor was replaced with tables to accommodate their growing clientele. The kitchen was expanded to the east into the unused space and former cigarette/liquor store where customers can now pick up their carry out along with any wine/spirits, beer, pop, candy, etc. with the convenience of pulling up to the front door. The lounge/restaurant has a pool table, juke box, video game and 8 high-definition TV’s for customers to catch the latest game on. They also subscribe to the NFL Network and free WiFi is available.
The Isles is a great place to stop before or after a game, concert, event or just to meet up with friends and family to relax and have fun.
