Have been coming here for years and love it! Best lobster roll ever! (roll lightly toasted with butter). Also love the fried scallops and the onion rings - great! Very fast service and comfortable seating. Great outside picnic tables for warm weather!

The food and service continues to be consistently great. When in the mood for fast seafood, this is the first place we head for. My wife loves their lobster rolls, and I had a fish sandwich and lobster bisque luncheon special that I really loved. The lobster bisque was nice, thick, and creamy with large lobster chunks. The fish sandwich... More

I overheard someone talking about this place while watching a college soccer game in new london, ct. I decided by their description to stop on the way home along I-95. It was great. Service was fast, place was crowded but food came up quickly. Everything was fresh and very hot. Not too greasy and priced fairly.

The lobster rolls at Lenny and Joes are very good. It's an easy and delicious meal. We consider it "fast food" on the Shoreline of CT. Delicious lobster rolls; fish sandwiches; onion rings and Birch Beer "on tap". What more could one want?

this is a very overrated restaurant. Don't get me wrong. Food is but not very good. in many ways it is a glorified fast food restaurant concentrating on seafood. The atmosphere is ok but somewhat hokey.service is ok but pretty much what you would expect for a fast food restaurant.there are a lot of better restaurants in the same town... More

Lenny and Joes Fish Tales in Madison, near the entrance to the Hammonasset Beach is a favorite of the locals. The fish is fresh, you can bring your own wine, and the carousel is great fun for the kids and the proceeds go to charities. Seasonal shoreline favorites are lobster and soft shell crab. Grab a T-shirt while you are... More

My family has been going here for years. Great fried seafood, carousel for the kids and awesome soft serve ice cream for desert. Make sure if your kids go on the carousel to tell them to grab the rings... Blue ring gives you a free ride. If you can't decide on what to eat, order the seafood combination as it... More

Just got back from Madison. We went here because we had our dog and could sit outside. Huge place with picnic tables and a carousel for the kids in the center of it all. People bring table cloths and libations. Many multi generational families enjoying eating, running around and relaxing. Think lobster shack on steroids. The steamers were excellent and... More
