My family and I had dinner at the SeaShore on June 30th. We were seated promptly outside on the patio. The ambience was pleasant enough, although I observed the dingy wood planked walls that could use some fresh paint. There were enough shoddy and dated...details in the decor to inspire a complete makeover. The service was good overall. The waiters were friendly and attentive. In fact the diligent waitstaff is the restaurant's only saving grace. I wish I could offer equal praise of the food, but it garners no more than the term “lackluster” for its description. Of the 3 entrees ordered, the shrimp and scallop dish was in most need of seasoning. Even the natural sweetness associated with fresh seafood could not mitigate the languid flavor. My prime-rib was tender and flavorful but disappointingly served with a meager amount of jus that should have been sifted and thickened. My Lobster tail was tough and the breadcrumb topping was congealed into a stale membrane. Probably the most disappointing and telling of the restaurant's standards are the accompanying sides and house salad. Our baked potatoes resembled blank Mr. Potatoheads wrapped in aluminum. They didn’t even have the welcoming butter filled slits one looks forward to when ordering potatoes of this variety. The house salads were made up of the palest iceberg lettuce and a few scattered tomatoes. I poured a blanket of dressing over the pitiful stems in a glossy layer of hope knowing it would compensate. I couldn’t further this list without coming off as ridiculous and deviating from the main point which was our bill of $133.00. Overpriced for what we received. The overpriced meals are also the impetus for this review. Ultimately I'd love the SeaShore to improve. It is a Bronx landmark with a beautiful waterfront view. A source of nostalgia for people who grew up here. Get your act together.More

They never disappoint. Food is great, drinks are great and the service is the best to be found anywhere. The servers go out of their way to accommodate you over and above normal limits. I can’t say enough about this place and can’t wait to...go back. I’ve been a patron for more than 40 years.More

You are always greeted warmly by both the valets and staff of this restaurant. Service is excellent. Delicious vege plate and bread appears as soon as you sit down! Drinks are generous and well mixed. There are so many seafood choices on the menu it...is very hard to choose. Everything is cooked to your order and yummy. I so want to have dessert but am so full eating 1/2 of my entree that I haven’t been able to try any of the luscious looking treats! Next time I am starting with dessert. This is a great restaurant to enjoy with friends.More

We started by ordering mix drinks, they were so bad that we had to send it back for another one, that was bad too, so we gave up. I think only beer or wine might be a better choice. We ordered surf & turf, the...portions are very generous and 2 people can easily share an entree. Our lobster and steak were cooked to perfection. They also serve good bread accompanied by some appetizers which were delicious. The service was attentive and excellent. We would go back for food, not drinks.More

I felt like I had come home to this Jewel in City Island - I celebrated all my birthdays here when I lived in the Bronx and it was exactly as I remembered it - the twin lobster tail seashore with crab meat stuffing was...as superb as I remembered it - the appetizers, the salad EVERYTHING I tasted was wonderful tasty and fresh - The extra creamy Pina Colada WOW!! Honorable mention to our AWESOME waiter Manny 2 - he was the BEST!!More

Every location on City Island charges about the same, but I feel this place is actually worth it. It's the best of them all. I like to go and eat and I like to get food around the holidays.

At first I thought the prices were rather high. But then a large plate of snacks to start with arrived: olives, marinated mushrooms, an eggplant dish, etc. plus 3 types of bread including garlic bread. My dish (sole meuniere) was very good and plenty. My...wife's avocado crab salad as well. We both took half of it home. The margarita was also good. Service was attentive. We were sitting on the deck which was very pleasant despite the occasional shooting from the shooting range across the water.More

Catching up on old times with good friends in a very relaxed and not rushed lunch. The service was attentive and their teamwork was evident. Stuffed clams and fried calamari were perfect for appetizers with well made drinks. The salmon and fried scallops for the...main lunch choices were prepared perfectly and the portions were impressive. All capped off with fresh coffee and desert as part of the lunch special made this a memorable lunch and a chance to spend time with good friends. Definitely recommended.More

There is off street parking but very hard to find available ones. Maybe on the side streets

I would not guarantee that the salmon is wild. If that is what you are looking for I would be cautious.
