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.

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
