I have to agree with some of the other reviews (pricey, a bit messy/dirty, and crowded), what it did have "going for it" was excitement, amazing handsome young waiters and fresh delicious sea food. I went on a Sunday afternoon and ordered their crab cakes....More

The service is always great here. The food is plentiful even before you order. The outside deck in summer is a great place to sit and have a cocktail or three.

Went there on a weekday for lunch. We had the shrimp parmigiana and broiled shrimp lunches. They included salad, desert and coffee/tea. The shrimp parmigiana cane with spaghetti and broiled shrimp came with broiled potatoes and broccoli. For desert we had a lovely strawberry shortcake....More

It is always a big fun to go to City Island , especially with friends! Amazing food. HUGE portions! Don't trust their menu cart. If they says "dish for two" , read: FOR 4-6 PEOPLE. They are always booked because they are the BEST!
