Have you tried their website?

www.nutritiondata.com has a lot of good info on calorie totals for restaurants.

Never heard of islands, but a lot of the time they'll have the nutrition info on the restaurant's website.

do you have to eat when you go out with them?
Just order a diet coke and let them waste their money

If money is no object, order ala carte. I do it all the time, people look at you funny, but you know what you are eating. Lots of places have "lite" menus, with things like cottage cheese, etc.
Or you can just count it as a cheat meal, enjoy yourself, and not sweat it. If it's not every day, it probably won't matter in the long run, unless you are in competition.

that's their site, and the food is awesome. i go there once in maybe a month or two. definately a cheat meal but they don't have nutritional facts available that i know of. o well, i just guess by putting together items in fitday.com

Yah, if you're going to go out and eat, just chalk it up as a cheat meal for the day/week and move on. Gotta live once in awhile, hehe.
