Best roasted veggies in town!

We love to eat at Lennies for many reasons. Good food like the full and half order of roasted veggies and the good brews to quaff down with any of their great dishes. You have to look for them since they are tucked in a small shopping center on 10th Street across from IU. Well worth the search... read more

The variety of this menu is exceeded only by the quality of the delicious food. Don't miss out on the mini-desserts!

Some of my family and I ate at Lennie's on a busy Saturday evening. We only had an hour and the seating in the dining room had a 30 minute wait. However, there were tables in the bar and we were seated right away there. We started with the Spinach and Artichoke Torta which is billed as a Linnie's standby... More

I would have given this place a better rating but the service ruined that. The food was good as was the atmosphere but our waiter was cranky and seem annoyed to be waiting on us. We never had our water refilled despite asking. I know many that have dined here and enjoyed it, not the case for us. The service... More

I should have given five stars. But why I didn't? The service! I mean the foods were sooooo good and we were so happy to be there but this waitress ruined the mood. Her name I think it is Melissa or something. Really impatient face and rolling eyes. I still gave her 17% tips but my friends gave her less... More

dined many times with friends. Not a great restaurant in Bloomington where you can find many options for all kinds of cuisines. Some portions are very big. More Midwest cuisine. Although, The service is good.

We stopped here after watching a IU basketball game. Great food, great beer and great atmosphere. Also if you have a party of six or more you can make a reservation. Highly recommend!

The food is excellent. The beer is awesome. However it is the people and the atmosphere that keeps bringing us back. A must go to for those who are visiting Bloomington and want to experience a place that is Bloomington. Located in the middle of the Indiana University campus. Free parking is a plus at Lennie's as downtown Bloomington is... More

Love this place! It has great food and good beer. It is rather small, so it can often have a wait on busy evenings/weekends. Our favorites are the stromboli, pizza, and the Lennie's sandwich. They have good options on the kids menu. They were super excited to find that they were making their own root beer now! We try to... More

My Husband and I were dying for a pizza -- and he remembered going to this place 20 years ago so we thought we would try it out! I loved it and he said nothing had changed -- it was still a good place to go and eat and drink! Had a great time!!
