    Great value, quick service, and HUGE portions. Almost everyone takes a doggy bag. No need for appetizers because it's all so filling. Bottomless garlic bread is great to start...and end!

    One of my favorite places.The garlic bread is to die for and the lobster special an awesome, delicious value. A customer for more than a decade but last year we went 13 weeks in a row. It's THAT good!

    Great lil vibes, all type of food was prepared great. The ribs was fall off the bone & the lobster tails were succulent. We got the BBQ Feast.

    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.

    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!

    A must try is the combo lobster tails and shrimp. And the Baltimore style Snow Crab Legs is to die for. Steamed with Old Bay. Divine.

    Make sure you come here for lunch. The fisherman's platter gives you a ton of food, appetizers and dessert for a great price.

    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.

    Snow crab legs to start, then either twin lobster tails or a combo. Can't go wrong with either.
