Come here for lunch or dinner and dessert! Bring your camera to take a few great photos near the water and selfies while eating your yummy food! It can get super packed at holidays in spring and summer go on a weekday if you can.

We went to Sammys Lobster House for an anniversary dinner and received excellent service. The wait staff is very friendly and accommodating. The drinks are great and the food scrumptious and worth the prices they charge.

I would recommend going to City Island in the late spring, summer or early fall (mid September).

I've been visiting city island all my life. Always a good time and great seafood. Pick from budget or more upscale restaurants to enjoy great seafood and hang out waterfront with friends and family.

One of the most popular spot in the Bronx, the food is great you can go from very expensive to affordable. Try the one at the end, outdoor eating space and simple menu options. Great date location.
