Been there several times with my husband as well as a reunion dinner with a bunch of old friends every December and have always had a great meal. Prices are right, food excellent, service really good. In the warm weather you can eat outside on the patio on the water and that's fun! Being a "Bronx Girl" I love going... More

Took my Kids to celebrate my daughters birthday- They all were reluctant to drive all the way from Manhattan. I insisted they go outside of their box - well they were all pleasantly surprised - they loved it, and even compared Lobster House to Manhattans better restaurants. Every thing we ordered was very good and plenty of it, great service.... More

Very good, great value, great service and plenty of it. You won't leave hungry and won't wait long for food. Lobster rolls were very good and huge. Fresh homemade potato chips were wonderful. We'll be back to this soon to be regular for us....

I've not been to City Island in years. However happen to hear about the City Island Lobster House. Menu has many choices. Entire staff was very friendly and cordial. You don't have one waiter but many waiters. Before we ordered we were served a cheese and olive platter and large garlic bread. I had the Clam Bake platter which included... More

First of all, if the outside seating is unavailable or will be too long of a wait for you, don't hesitate to sit in the breezeway between the bar and the outside seating area. It's quite pleasant. It is absolutely true that each table is given salad, garlic and blueberry bread along with a cheese and olive assortment. We were... More

This restaurant showers its customers with cheese and olive platter, bluberry bread, salad, and fresh garlic bread on the house! You get so full on all that you have no room for your entree. Everything they make is delicious and worth the money! A must stop in City Island
