“Comfortable”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Took my disabled brother. I chose an area that was private and comfortable. We all enjoyed the delicious Lobster.

“Celebration”
Reviewed April 8, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

the wait staff gets it right - with over 20 people each order was correct - however the management needs to step up it's game - had a problem with a few of the dishes (how they were prepared in the kitchen) and it took some convincing of the manager to adjust the bill

“Nothing fancy just plain shanty”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

Great place to eat seafood. Huge portions.
I only go here to eat king crab and lobster, but their menu looks like they have something for everyone. Food is fresh and comes out tasting as good as it looks. Never had a bad meal here. You leave very satisfied. King crab comes out to $60 a plate, but you can share it as you get some huge huge legs. Ive bought 2 orders and shared with 3 people and still bagged some home. If course there was some appetizers and bread. If you can drive out there its worth it.

“Great Lobster, Cheap Prices”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

This is one of the most popular lobster places on City Island, The Bronx. The lobster specials are very reasonably priced, and parking is convenient. The atmosphere is very casual and the service is great.

“Love that lobster?”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

City Island is a treasure and the Original Crab Shanty is the perfect place to meet friends for a lobster lunch. I ordered the lunch special which consisted of a 1 1/4 lb. lobster, baked potato, salad and vegetable. The weekday lunch menu runs to 4 pm. I got there at 3:00 and dined for 2 hours. Needless to say, it was the main meal of the day. If you get a chance to visit City Island, enjoy the scenery and stop by the Original Crab Shanty, have a glass of wine and feast on delicious seaford.
