City Island Lobster House

Interior Design of back room

2018 is all about taking risks and overcoming my fears. I am so happy I overcame my fear of driving on the expressway/highway in order to get to City Island Lobster House. A group of my friends and I drove to this particular place since we were celebrating one of my best friend's birthday. I am a lover of all seafood dishes and great company. This was my first time at City Island as well as my first time driving to the Bronx with my car.

Everything from the service to the food was exceptional. We arrived for dinner and had made a reservation in advance since we were unsure of how crowded the place would be. The staff was very attentive and accommodating to our needs and the vibe of the place was positive. We were given complimentary garlic bread and their special house salad while we decided on our entrees. 

Snow Crab Legs

Since we knew that food portions at this place were enough for two people to share, we decided to ask for more garlic bread and read through their extensive menu before deciding on what to order. Even though reviews marked this place as $$$ sign, I personally thought that the price per entree was reasonable enough for one person considering the amount of food that is served and even a better deal when split between two people.

My overall rating of this place is a 10/10 despite it's location and accessibility. I was fortunate enough to have a car and drive friends to this place. This place can be reached by public transportation but it will take some time depending on your location. Driving from Brooklyn, NY took us about 40 minutes and if we would have taken public transportation then it would have taken us a little over two hours. The service was great and our waiter was kind enough to take our pictures and be attentive at all times. I have been told that during the warmer season, seating is available on their outdoor terrace and you can enjoy a view of their marina. I cannot wait to go back and indulge in seafood heaven.
