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

I live 4 minutes away, yet, crossing the City Island Bridge transports you to a seaside village feeling...3 friends and I visited a couple of weeks ago on Resurrection Sunday....Valet parking is a plus and because we had reservations we were seated right away....although there was a crowd we were not rushed, the atmosphere was comfortable. The appetizers - Mussels... More

The journey to get to City Island was horrendous. Construction on a new bridge is causing hours of traffic. Our normal 15 minute drive from Queens took 90 minutes. We called the restaurant twice and they said they would hold our table, a 7:00 reservation. They did Not!! We were led to a line of diners waiting for a table.... More
