I have been going to Lenny & Joes since they opened and the food is always consistent and good! I/we usually start off with a single/double order of fried whole belly clams. Their clams are cooked to perfection, fresh and lightly battered with none of those giant belly's that are kind of gross to eat. Fresh tarter sauce and a... More

They know how to buy fish and they know how to cook fish here and they know how to serve it and give you a great meal for the value. One of my favorites is to order the broiled bluefish - a local treat - that is uniformly cooked to perfection - moist and flavorful with a crispness along the... More

long wait to get a seat so we did take out this time. Food was ready in 10min. We had two orders of fried clams, two lobster rolls with butter and tried the new lobster bisque. The clams were perfect, juicy and not over fried or over breaded, the lobster rolls were stuffed with lots of lobster and the bisque... More

I'm a local and sometimes its a hit or a miss. Recently I had the scallop roll. Only came with one side so I chose the onion rings. Way too greasy! Geeze - and to get the slaw I would have to pay extra - really! And how about toasting the roll. It was like they pulled it right out... More

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.
