A place that offers fishing charters and daily fresh fish doesn't know how to cook a tuna steak. What a shame! Used to be a pretty decent restaurant a few years ago, but it seems like the food quality and service is going down hill. The complaint for overcooked tuna was responded with ''well it was ready before the rest... More

Used to like Lees. This year food is awful across the board. Even fresh mahi mahi was salty and oily. Won't go anymore. Rude host.

Chicken, chicken and more chicken that is the theme. Two of us went and both of us had chicken and both of us stated at the same time wow really good grilled chicken. Live music, good food very reasonable price. Truly Americanized, well most things on the island are.

We visited the restaurant and it was packed (a good sign!). We didn't have to wait for a table, which was nice. The quality of the food was pretty good, the service was good, and the plantains as a side dish were particularly tasty. All that being said, it did feel like it catered to an 'American' dining experience, which... More

Everyone we have taken there has enjoyed Lee's. Over the years the restaurant was on a roller coaster in terms of quality with one really questionable year, but it's back where it should be, even if the prices are a bit high. Their fish sandwiches are among the best on either side of the island. We love sitting on the... More

Was looking forward our dinner at Lee's however we were very disappointed. The service was terrible, waiter was hard to hear, didn't check back with us after we were served our food, and we sat w/out drinks for a long time. It appeared that the menu has changed/reduced since there last, not a big selection. The appetizer was overcooked and... More

Had dinner at Lee's with some friends at Lee's. It has changed since I was there in late July of 2014. They moved the bar to the center of the restaurant, the smoke from the grills bothered people at the bar. In addition the atmosphere was not as warm and welcoming as it was in the past. The food was... More

Lee's is one of many BBQ/Seafood joints along the strip on Simpson Bay. Upon entry we didn't receive the normal warm welcome. After we ordered, the waiter did warm up to us. The portions are large. We had the crab cake bites and the pan fried wahoo. It was enough for 2 meals easily. they have live music and dancing... More

Back after a year away. Our first visit was a very good experience; not this time. We arrived at the end of the lunch hour so that it was not busy but it still took 15 minutes to catch the wait staff's attention. No specials, no information on what was on the menu and when the food we ordered arrived,... More
