Excellent food and service. Entrees are plentiful and enough to take home. We always have the shrimp with baked potato and vegetables and the broiled red snapper.

Best seafood ever!!! Book early, arrive early. Tables fill up fast and there's a long wait time. Serene atmosphere. Perfect for long dinners.

Surprisingly most New Yorkers have not been here or have even heard of this place. This place is quite a gem in the Bronx. You cross over into a completely different suburb like island surrounded by restaurants at every corner. Typically I love visiting the less fancy places like Tony's all the way at the end of the main street.... More

I've heard about City Island forever. Everyone has told me since I moved here that I had to go. At my husbands persistence to not going, l requested we go just once. That was all I needed.

Well this destination caught our eye from the movie "City Island" with Andy Garcia. Highly recommend the movie. Ever since seeing the movie I wanted to visit City Island on my next trip to New York. We did this month and were not disappointed. A very charming quaint fishing village. Many marinas and piers. More seafood restaurants than you can... More

It's a beautiful area but a lot of the restaurants are over priced and don't accept debt/credit cards. It also gets pack and if you take the bus, there will be about 20-25 minutes for a bus.
