Now you know, if I'm from the Bronx, I've to City Island. They are best known for their seafood. But they have a little bit of everything. Quite a lot of restaurants to choose from.

City Island is a different kind of place within NYC -- almost like a taste of New England right off the Bronx. It is fairly small so it is easy to walk around and admire all of the views -- particularly the one all the way at the end where you can see the lighthouse and Long Island. There are... More

I have been there a few times, we usually go to Seafood City. It is always crowded, and, noisy. Even with all the noise & kids, and music playing, it's a nice place to go and enjoy some good seafood. The lines are always long so don't go if your starving. We like to eat outside by the water and... More

I'm sure City Island is a great place to live in many ways, and my review is not of that. My review is of City Island as a destination for someone looking for an amazing meal and a drink with a view. So many completely mediocre and run-down seafood restaurants with tacky signs. None of them interested me, and as... More
