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.
