Lots of GREAT food at Good Prices!

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!

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 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

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
