The food here is decent and typical of City Island. However, I must say I truly enjoy their shrimp scampi and drinks. They can use a physical upgrade in various areas of the restaurant and their bathroom is up a long flight of stairs (not good for the elderly) but overall a decent place.

We tried this restaurant at recommendations for our Tripadvisor and were pleased. Lots of good sea food (the clam chowder was excellent!) followed by the fresh grilled fish and side dishes. Then we had dessert and coffee, then we ... bought a bigger car to drive 4 of us all home!

One of our favorites on City Island. We went in December and caught a dinner special. For $24.99 we had a choice of numerous entrees which included antipasto, a variety of breads (blueberry cornbread as well) AND soup AND salad, AND dessert. We choose the prime rib that was out of this world. We had New England clam chowder and... More

went there with the family. Before you even order you get complimentary salads, entrees, garlic bread.... Staff is very friendly, the food is very good, too. A great location to go with friends and/or family.

An awesome seafood restaurant that made an ordinary evening feel like festive celebration. The staff went over and beyond our expectations bringing out plates of fresh bread, antipasto and salad. The entrees are huge and perfectly prepared. Probably the best place on City Island.

We had just about given up on City Island, after years of going and trying almost all the restaurants there. Our faith has been redeemed! We were greeted at the door and promptly seated (it was busy). We were celebrating a birthday and we were treated like we were long time regulars, SPECIAL. The food was very good and the... More

My husband & I were participating in the Harvest Festival at the Bronx Botanical Gardens with our lil' company "Chef William Creations" (a gourmet sauces, salsas, mustards, and drenches company) and staying in the Bronx. So, to celebrate his birthday on Sept. 29th, we went exploring and discovered City Island! The Lobster House was the highlight of the day! The... More
