City Island Lobster House has been a favorite of ours for many years. We have held reunion luncheons there for several Summers because JOJO takes good care of us and gives us a sumptuous meal. The salad and olive appetizers along with delicious garlic bread adds a little extra to the meal. We recommend CIty Island Lobster House highly.

We all meet up here to celebrate a coworkers birthday. Everyone ate well. The drinks were good. I did think that it was a bit pricy.

Went for a dinner and just on time they gave us a table before people traffic 😁. After 5 mins or so, people tart to pool. Some came overdressed for the place and some underdressed 😁 you can actually go in casual. The foods are all good: house salad and bread and cheese with pickled mushroom and olives, so so... More

Very courteous staff, clean surroundings and great tasting food. I always go with my children to celebrate a birthday or graduation. They listen and prepare our food to perfection. The owner JoJo and his wife Marie are so sweet. The menu selection is impressive, my family always enjoys our time here.

Sitting by the ocean,a generous top of the line martini,wonderful sea food. It doesn't get any better than this.We had a seafood salad for an appetizer, lobster bisque soup, then a mixed fish and seafood platter with linguine. The waitstaff was friendly and efficient. The prices were reasonable... Don't like fried food? Don't order it.

I have no idea what these people are saying here about "mostly fried food" and "overpriced for what you get". Yes, it is pricey but I am willing to pay for the best lobster seasoned to perfection. And the atmosphere and view are amazing. The people that work here are great. I recommend coming here on a nice day to... More

Old school, but not always in a good way. Lots of fried food (if that's your thing fine) that looks fried food everywhere. Prices a bit high for the area...17$ for a dozen steamer clams. Good news is the fish is fresh. Stick with the fish, whole, grilled. And be sure you're not seated facing the sun. It's brutal and... More
