A classic seafood restaurant on Long Island Sound
New York magazine
Time Out New York
One of New York's great summer places. This crowded cafeteria-style restaurant features heaping servings of fried seafood in paper baskets, outdoor tables with expansive views of Long Island Sound, and a vibrant atmosphere. Frequented by people of all backgrounds and ethnic groups. City Island is known for the seafood restaurants lining City Island Avenue, its only main street. Johnny's has both the cheapest food and the best views.
