This was my second visit to Lenny & Joe's Fish Tale, and I hope I get to return many, many times. The service is fast and friendly. The food is fantastic and at unbelievably reasonable prices. We shared a platter of fried shrimp, scallops, clam strips and scrod + French fries & cole slaw. I love the family friendly atmosphere... More

We went for lunch after asking several locals what was the best place to eat lobster. I always try to find places with good lobster bisque. Lenny & Joe's only recently added the bisque to their menu. It was one of the best ones I've had. The broth was thick and creamy, with a hint of sweetness. I was surprised... More

Fried clams are a favorite food of mine, so I ordered the complete meal, which included clams, choice of fries,and cole slaw. My friend ordered the same, except she had onion rings in lieu of fries. If you're not that hungry, you can just order the clams. However, they have a varied menu of seafood and favorites which appeal to... More

Family friendly fried fish & t shirts! Always good, always consistent, quick service with a smile. The line out front moves quick, so hang in there. Not fine dining, but a notch above the proverbial clam shack! Love the fried scallops!

Great fried food served by friendly helpful staff. We usually stop when we are in the area. The food is consistently good. If you are looking for fine dining, this isn't the place.

We usually go to Lenny & Joe's when we're in the area, but had always been to the other locations. This was the first time at this location and we definitely prefer the other locations. The food was good as usual, it just lacked a view and outdoor seating area.

My wife and I were seated right away so far so good it was 7:00 on a Friday night. Soon after our waitress comes over to our table asking if we wanted drinks and an appetizer while she had a mouth full of food chewing. Waitress comes back to the table a second time minutes later with our water and... More

I visited this restaurant during a recent visit to CT and was not disappointed. Great seafood of all kinds and I chose a combo platter that featured a crab cake, fried scallops, fried clams strips and some fresh cod, along with onion rings and cole slaw. Also enjoyed a delicious mug of lobster bisque that had a nice vermouth kick... More
