    Been here a few times & it's the best seafood spot in City Island. The garlic bread, crab legs, lobster & shrimps are to die for & the drinks are always on point. They make official Nutcrackers!! :D.

    The platters for 2 are huuge -- great for sharing between 3-4 ppl...i loved being able to sample different seafood rather than having to choose btwn all the yummy entrees. cooked well, very tasty

    A feast is really enough for four people(four men) Order an appetizer to share and you have a great bang for your buck! My recommendation is order the steamers with garlic.

    Not ideal for vegetarians, but an OK penne vodka and some pretty amazing garlic bread. It's worth the trip for the experience, alone. It's quite the establishment. Come patient, long lines always!

    the Feasts for Two are a tad smaller than Sammy's - but MUCH fresher/tastier and $30 less... the rice served underneath the shellfish is much softer and tastier as well.

    REAL garlic bread keeps on coming - so good. Ask for anything broiled for a garlic butter crust mmm. Crab Lover's Dream = Heaven.

    The lunch special is a must! Insane amounts of food for $15-$20. Dinner portion servings for half the price.
