Sat down ready for a great lobster dinner and had this nasty, filthy silverware placed in front of us. I thought I was going to vomit. It was crusted with old food, rust and there's even a hair on the plate to boot. we got up and left immediately. Don't eat here unless you want to get diarrhea. Unacceptable.

The atmosphere is great. The wait time isn't long but it's best to make reservations in advance. The food was delicious and they have a full top shelf bar.

The food and the atmosphere is always the best!!! The Service I have been coming here for a very long time, usually with the entire family which is a total of 13. JoJo always treats my family like it's his family and its not because I get any special treatment. This is how he is with everyone who comes walking... More

We've been several times - fun very good food and generous portions. No one will walk away hungry. The Ipswich Steamers are fabulous. Weather permitting, it's fun to be out on the deck overlooking the water, although it can be a bit breezy (but that's refreshing when you live in NYC).

When I go to City island I'm hoping for well-prepared, hearty seafood in a casual environment. The Lobster House delivered today on all counts when our group of 20 had lunch. Our prix-fixe lunch included a garden salad, garlic bread, cold and hot antipastos, pasta, a choice of 5 entrees, soft drinks, and strawberry cake. More than half of the... More
