This is a counter service restaurant, be prepared to wait in line to order and listen for your number to be called. High volume with moderate quality you will be satisfied if your expectations are not too high. Merry go round is fun for the kids.

This is a great spot to get seafood...the simple kind like fried clams, lobster, fish. It's not fancy but the food is good and consistent.

Great food. Fast service. Wonderful atmosphere which includes the sale of ice cream treats and a carousel for the kids. Dine indoors or outside. I recommend the seafood platter. Enough for two and delicious.

Love the scallop roll, cole slaw, and fries at Lenny and Joe's! I always ask for extra lemon and tartar sauce. Grilled chicken sandwich is very good, too. I always order scallops or chicken sandwich- my favorites! My friends and I like to meet here in the summer for dinner. We sit outside at one of the many picnic tables... More

The food is good for what it is. The highlight of the place is the fact that they do not serve alcohol of any kind, which means you are welcome to bring your own! Which is pretty cool.

A self service place with similar food to the one in West Haven but that one is a real restaurant where the one in Madison is fast food on paper plates. The food was similar but it doesn't taste the same on paper as it does on a ceramic plate. And the people were not as accommodating as they were... More

My husband and I are regular diners at Lenny & Joe's Fish Tale and it is one of our favorite seafood restaurants on the Connecticut Shoreline! The best fried shrimp and scallops! All fresh seafood. All the platters are served with heaping portions at excellent prices! I always have enough to bring some food home with me for the next... More

If you've spent the day at the beach and are craving some seafood, Lenny and Joes is within shouting distance of the Sound. It's a step up from fast food, but not the place you go for a fine dining experience. They get you in and out quickly, catering to the off the beach crowd in the summer and the... More
