A Very Good Experience

I meet friends for lunch on a beautiful day. We sat on their outside patio facing the water. The view isn't absolutely gorgeous but it is water with sea gulls. The waiters were attentive and friendly. The food was very good and nicely presented. They brought a salad for us to split while we... read more

I randomly ended up on City Island (re: I got lost) and decided to take advantage of the lobster house. Its huge, first of all...and looked heavily staffed for 11:30a. But then I waited...and waited...for a menu. For someone to take my order. For my food to come. Few other notes, the lobster roll was good, but their "fries" are... More

We were desperate and couldn't find anywhere good to eat on the island. This was our last option. OK food, but I'd avoid City Island.

We went on a Sunday and fortunately sat outside on a nice beautiful sunny day. We got the lobster deal per person for around $26. It came with an entire lobster the way you want it cooked, with baked topped mussels, 2 baked clams, studded garlic bread, salad, a bowl of cubed cheese and olives, side of either rice, baked...

An hour away but worth the drive......great menu , even better service. Views of the Sound and Orchard Beach were like visions of the past......growing up 15 min. away. We went on a Wed. afternoon ...10 min. wait and were waterside. We'll be back soon and recommend the broiled seafood platter.......

Nine of us went today. Six ordered the lobster tail plate. All six complained that it was the worst ever!...very dry, hard and tasteless. The owner actually yelled at us and said it was our fault for ordering it steamed instead of broiled!!!!!

This is a hectic place on weekends but they work hard to get you to a table fast. A couple of high points: parking is tough but the valet parking is helpful. Wade through the place to the back and find someone in the outside dining area; they'll get you seated. Whew: now that you're there, you'll have time to... More
