It’s a long strap with a whole bunch of seafood restaurants some with water views. The beach isn’t that appealing so don’t go for that reason in my opinion. There are a lot of seagulls but the restaurants there have some good eats year around....More

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

No place for locals. Never go on a holiday - you won't be able to get off island for a long time. Food just okay

This is a great place to get away from the city without having to travel too far. It's like a mini vacation without the hassle of travel.

City Island is a gem in the Bronx. Get away from the hustle bustle without traveling a long distance. Great food, go for a stroll, take a break from the stress of NYC.

Not a place for kids or family meal, a place for easy pick up of strangers. The managers allows the music to be played so loud that it is difficult to have a conversation. Bathrooms are disgusting. I can only imagine how the kitchen must...More

Such a great and quiet place out side New York. Great place for all the seafood lovers. But I don't recommend going there on Monday. We rented a car and drove from Brooklyn and everything was close. Even people told us that today we can...More
