Pricey Good

I'm a repeat customer. I like their seafood and they give good portions. The prices are high given the total lack of atmosphere and table service. But if you want to chow down on anything fried, Lenny & Joe's is your kind of place.

I needed a chowder for 50 people and was time restricted, then I remembered how much we loved Lenny and Joe's, so I called them, got advice on how much I would need, told when to pick up and it was ready as promised. It was the hit of our party and my lifesaver. Remember them for out parties as... More

We had a great dinner here 2 of our 6 nights in the Connecticut area. They catered to our gluten and dairy allergies and made broiled fish and veggies for us. It was yummy and we were so thankful!

my wife loves the lobster roll here and we go when we are in the area. They do have quite a list of options on the menu board but be ready for mostly fried something. They also do not do refills on any drink or ice tea.

Clams were running small so we got a scallop dinner that was very good, fish sandwich is always great, clam chowder was very boring as it was basically just broth! Quite expensive at close to 50.

Just so you know, I happen to love seafood as you can read from my Saybrook Fish house review. So when I visited Lenny and Joe's; a CT landmark, I expected it to be awesome! Everyone I talk to raves about this place. Because if you grew io at the CT shore, this place or Bill's are the places to... More
