Since it was an unusually warm day, went to City Island for dinner. as a lovely drive and then dinner at Lobster House. Very nice way to spend a Sunday evening.

Do not go in summer months Unless you want to risk your safety. Other than that the restaurants around there pretty good on the food taste pretty decent. If you do decide to go in the summer just be cautious and be aware tha fights will break Out and it usually involves knives and guns.

This is the best restaurant for the money. The food is exceptional and more than enough. Myself, daughter and her friend went out for the day and I suggested Sammys. Well they were more then thrilled because they know how good the food and services is. We left with our stomachs full and left with an doggie bag as well.
