Great restaurants, from fast food seafood to sit down elegance. I have eaten in at least 12 restaurants on the island. Just restaurant after restaurant - from latin to asian to italian - seafood everyday you can think of.

A great place for a family style seafood dinner. We always go to Sammy's at the end and have always left happy and full.

We love City Island and have been to a few of the restaurants but our favorite no frills family friendly place is Johnny’s Reef! The only drawback to City Island is the traffic during the summer, it’s a nightmare! To combat this we just take...More
