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

Passed by the area on our way to Mystic and took the very easy 3 min. off I-95 exit 61 to give this place a shot. On a Thursday afternoon at 2, there was a steady flow of well-dressed couples, construction workers, moms with small children. This is a seafood place that offers counter service...you order your drink and food... More

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?
