At the Clinton Restaurant, we’re not only known for Italian cuisine but for the Best Seafood College Point! Our history spans back from the 1800s. We’re known as one of Whitestone’s oldest foundations. For a time, in the mid-1800s, Whitestone was originally named, Clintonville after DeWitt Clinton, the governor of New York. Clinton was instrumental in building the Erie Canal and was well-loved by Queens citizens. He was Queens resident who spent his summers in Whitestone with family. Originally, the restaurant didn’t have a name, so local residents would refer to it as, “The Clinton” and the name stuck. The building was originally constructed in 1901 and even housed a “speakeasy” saloon during Prohibition times.
We’re known to be one of the oldest Seafood College Point restaurants in all of Queens. We’re also known and deeply favored by many generations for our great service and family-style portions. Customers everywhere constantly compliment us on our amazing food, atmosphere, and service. No wonder why we’ve been able to stay in business for over 100 years! Our owners, the Babich family, have owned the Clinton Restaurant for three generations already. Their goal is to keep serving the community of Whitestone for many generations to come. Because with us, we’ll treat you like our own family!
