The best seafood on city island. Atmosphere real cozy and the food is plenty, impossible to not take a a "doggy" bag! Shrimp Fra diavolo is the the truth!

My boyfriend and I went for lunch for the catfish platter. The food was plentiful and so delicious. You have to see and taste for yourself. That is going to be a monthly date and can't wait to go back soon.

City Island offers you a multitude of restaurants to satisfy your love of seafood. You will not be disappointed. I suggest Seafood City as it is right off the bridge and parking is ample. Needless to say the food is outstanding

Tiny island off the Bronx coast with restaurants, fishing tackle shops , boat rentals , and charter boats. Looks like a quaint little New England style seaside village.

Beautiful little CROWED place in The Bronx. Great Seafood! Great to just get ice cream or something and take a walk down the main street. Parking can be tough- look on the side streets.Weekends very busy-AVOID Mothers Day -unless you want to sit in traffic for 2-3 hours.

I love being on City Island, I just don't like driving there. One way in. One way out. In beautiful weather, it's like commuting to work. Yes...it takes that long. Worth the drive for sure!

Basically one Main Street. There are lots of restaurants, some shops, boat yards, etc. it doesn't feel like the city and is a great place to visit. When you get to the end of the island, you have a great view of Long Island Sound and Johnny's is a great place to eat outside. You order your food and drink... More

Jump aboard a 6 train to the end of the line at Pelham Bay Park, then board a City Island bound BX29 bus to the last stop and visit Tony's Pier for some great fried shrimp and oysters, from there you can stroll the main street or catch the bus again and explore NYC's largest park. Along the way you'll... More

What ever restaurant you choose, the food is great. My favorites are the Lobster House, Sammy's Shrimp Box and the Sea Shore.
