"A Tiny Island Community" City Island by cjg1
City Island Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 26 photos
When we have a craving for some good seafood we come to City Island. One of our favorite places is the Crab Shanty. It's not much to look at but has some great seafood and large portions. We usually order the Crab Feast for two which is enough food to feed five people easily.
We have been to other restaurants on the island but like the casual and friendly atmosphere of the Crab Shanty. If you plan on having a meal on a Saturday make sure to get here early before the crowds start building.
City Island is a tiny island community in the Bronx. It's know for it's seafood reatsurants and boating. The island is rather small but can get pretty packed in the summer months with fisherman, boaters and tourists.
Liz and I enjoy having a nice meal in City Island. We do have our favorite the Crab Shanty but there are plenty of other good restaurants such as Artie's, Sea Shore and the Lobster House. We are both big seafood lovers and enjoy fresh and quality seafood. We've never had a bad meal on City Island and have always found the service to be very friendly.
It's an added bonus that Liz's family is so close to City Island and can join us for an excellent meal at a moments notice. Enjoying a great meal with family and loved ones is always a great time.
- Pros:Incredible Food and Close to Family
- Cons:We can never finish a meal ...the portions are huge!
- In a nutshell:Seafood Heaven
The Crab Shanty is a little hole in the wall place on City Island. There food here is incredibly good. We come here... more travel advice
