We decided to try the takeout!

Since today is Saturday in August, we decided to try takeout because we wanted to avoid the crowds. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the person was who took my order. I ordered a large Nonas pizza with a thin crust and it was delicious. You could tell that the sauce was homemade. I... read more

We've been here a few times over the years. It's always busy but worth the wait. Good family restaurant.

Lenny's is a typical jersey shore restuarant. Their primary focus is on large groups who enjoy mediocre Italian "like" food. We were promised a 20 minute wait for a table for 2 but this painfully extended to 40 minutes. Once seated we found ourselves in the middle of the floor by both doors and my chair was bumped numerous times... More

Have always been treated with courtesy here. There is a small dining area with table service. If you just want some pizza or Italian subs leave your order and have a seat outside or in the Formica booths. They have great takeout numbers. Close to the beach.

Took my wife and grandson to Lenny's on a Saturday evening. To say that it was busy would be an understatement. After nearly an hour wait ( told it would be 30 minutes) we sat down to a good meal. Grandson had an ample portion of Shrimp Scampi ( 3 jumbo and 3 large shrimp and lots of pasta); wife... More

We went to Lenny's last night and were greeted by the most rude, nasty, & snotty hostess. On our receipt for the Pizza and soda the term "Benny" was printed. For those that do not know "Benny" is a derogatory term for those that are not from the Jersey Shore. This place needs to read people better because we live... More

Usually get take out. They offer large portion sizes. The meatballs are huge (4 enough for 6 adults as appetizer). Never let us down.

Went for a quick pizza lunch. The personal pizza is 10 inches and we order 2 different ones,it was way too much for my daughter and myself. We also ordered buffalo wings and they were tasty. Pizza was tasty and hot. My daughter order the Hawaiian pizza which she enjoyed. I order pepperoni and fresh garlic. All in all the... More

Any review of a beachside restaurant, especially in south jersey, is going to have two common traits; over-priced and bad service. Keeping that in mind, we ate at Lenny's on a Friday night in July. At 6p, we waited 30 mins for a table. Most entrees are between 20-30 dollars and include soup or salad. The soups are homemade, the... More

While visiting the Jersey Shore, I had the pleasure of enjoying one of my best meals at this bustling restaurant in the heart of Lavallette. I was joined by my friends who are local to the area and I can see why they are regulars. The food here does not disappoint and I would definitely return if I am ever... More
