The seafood platter is stuffed with, clams,mussels,fish,calamari, shrimp, a ton on pasta, and of course lobster. It's enough for three people and you will still have a doggy bag to take home.

Clean, friendly, efficient and fresh. We were greeted like family. We were served like royalty. The server made my toddler a paper airplane and gave him a balloon. Antonio was delightful. The portions were large and delicious. I would recommend City Island Lobster House to anyone who wants a wonderful culinary and customer service experience.

We stopped here on our drive back to Albany from long island on the strength of its trip advisor reviews. It started out strong as we were impressed with the complimentary antipasto and bread plates. Then the salad bowl. We had only ordered two lobster rolls after all, so this was a real bonus! Husband ordered the manhattan clam chowder... More
