Sammy's Fish Box - Seafood Galore!
I visited Sammy's Fish Box with Will and our good friend Jason just two days before the New Year came. I must admit it wasn't ideal for us to visit Sammy's Fish Box in the gloomy, cloudy, chilly Winter, but we did so any way since it was the first time Jason mentioned City Island to us.
There's a parking lot right next to the restaurant, so no worries about the parking situation. The restaurant is humongous and they have an interesting seating area on the side of the restaurant we sat in and they also have booths for you to sit in. The restaurant had a nice ocean-like, relaxing atmosphere. Our waiter was an Asian man and probably around his 60's-70's and wasn't too friendly to us. He answered our questions, but if and when we were missing an item he didn't seem very attentive or helpful.
So we didn't know exactly how big were the portion sizes, but we ordered two entrees from the luncheon menu and two appetizers. The appetizers were a mistake because there was a lot of food that came with the entrees that we couldn't finish everything.

|New England Clam Chowder|
|Broiled Seafood Combo|
All in all, it was a nice experience and with good food, but too bad we were very full after the all the seafood and breading too. It would have been a better experience if our waiter was more warm and friendlier, but he wasn't. I definitely want to come back to City Island to try the other restaurants and as for Sammy's Fish Box I may consider returning, but hoping we don't get the same waiter.
