The inside of this place is like an aircraft hangar with cafeteria tables and video games. Not a single "hello" or a smile from the staff, and I do not believe they all spoke English. The woman behind the bar couldn't understand "Heineken" until the 3rd request, when it was made v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y. Nothing is timed - food is done when it is done, like McDonald's. We ordered cajun seasoned fish and a burger. The burger (which tasted like it was cooked a week prior and reheated) was done 20 minutes before the fish. There is no way for them to keep the first dish hot while you wait, even when the place is empty. Nor did they seem to care. The fries and baked potato were acceptable but the vegetable side was clearly a frozen vegetable medley boiled forever and mostly inedible. The outside space is nice, looking out over the water, but I was there mid-week at mid-day when it was empty. Cash only.

This place was ok when it first opened. But now it is a place for the locals (and the not so nice ones), to hang out at. They even have Policemen inside the restaurant walking around to make sure there is no static. I will NEVER go back there again, after seeing that.

Good Seafood and the Bar serves great drinks. There is also an arcade for the kids. There is also outside seating. But if you do not like crowds then this is not the place for you. The protocol here is, there are three lines, one to the extreme left is the Bar, the one in the middle is for the seafood, the line on the right is for Pizza, Hamburgers etc, the Menus are high above the lines and large enough to read. Try to have your order ready before you order your food. They will give you a number, you wait until your called. enjoy!

Seafood City is more of a place to grab lunch than dinner. It resembles a cafeteria/food stand that you see at a beach than an actual restaurant. They offer a lot of different fried seafood baskets that come with fries and they run from $11-$20. There is a full bar there with different frozen drinks, but since I go here for lunch, I never really see anyone order from it. They do have a small arcade and a couple of those little rides that you put the quarter into, but the atmosphere isn't anything to write home about. It is basically a nicer version of Jimmy's, which is down at the end of City Island Avenue.
