Our family of 7 came here to celebrate a few birthdays with some seafood and drinks. This being my first time to visit City Island, I have to say, I need a do-over. We were able to find parking pretty quickly and ventured into the hoards of people clamoring to pay exorbitant amounts of money for seafood of questionable quality... More

Seafood City is in the middle of the island. It's like being back in High School Cafeteria with arcades and access to an outdoor area overlooking the water. The bar is open from early afternoon and the food is well done either broiled or fried. Not expensive for the value. We go once or twice a week. There i plenty... More

The food used to be much better, this restaurant has really gone downhill. Greasy tasteless food which is not worth the money.

Well, let me just say the shrimp are greasy and tasteless as well as the fries. After eating that mess, I felt like I had drank a cup of grease. It is so loud that you have to yell to be heard. The drinks are super duper strong and you must have a designated driver with you because after just... More

We go to this restaurant at least once a month. Fried and broiled seafood at reasonable prices and very casual. I've traveled to many cities and Islands and so far I have not seen any place like City Island, where you can get moderately priced seafood in a casual setting. City Island in general seems to be a locals thing... More

I was expecting high quality seafood as its a busy restaurant in City Island, but it was very disappointing. Their broiled king crab was super salty. Not only was the meat salty but the seafood seasoning they put over the cracked meat makes it even more salty. I ended up getting a lot if butter and rinsing the meat in... More

But we stopped frequenting this spot. It's basically a large galvanized steel structure with tables, juke box machine and video games. Menu is up high on a board. You order at the cashier and they call your number and pick up food. Drinks are strong and served in plastic cups. They make no attempt explain preparation food except to say... More

We were in City Island and it was time for lunch. After looking at a few restaurants we decided to have lunch at Seafood City where the prices were reasonable. They had a lot of selections posted on the overhead menu board and we decided to order the Halibut which came with a baked potato and veggies. It was actually... More

...if you want good food, noisy, park your own car (no valet service), casual attire, reasonable price, then this your spot. Food is fresh. There's something on the menu for everyone. You place your order and wait for your number to be called. Then you seat yourself (or have your family/friends hold a table). All in all my family likes... More

this is the best seafood at the most affordable place you can get on city island--it's a fast food style ordering --the food is fresh and they're always busy--you can eat outside and see the water--they also have a bar and an arcade for the kids
