Best Ribs Around

What can I say? There must be a reason that Lenny's has been around for over 40 years and I always am reminded of that when I come here for ribs. Delicious, succulent and juicy - they were 5 star in my book. The baked clams and cheesecake are not to be missed. Thank you Lenny's - I will be... read more

On March 18 2015 Lennys mgmt responds to my review from Sept. 1 2014 At the time of our meal we had asked the waiter to talk to management all manager did was shrug his shoulders so I was done. Thanx for responding back.

I arranged for a surprise party for my husband at Lenny's and we had a blast. We were 40 people in the back room over looking the water. Everyone complimented the room, staff and especially the food.

I had these on 2/14/15. I have been craving them ever since. The order that arrived was generously portioned. The mussels were tender and perfectly cooked in a light broth. Dipping the warm bread in the broth was to die for. The other food we had was also great. It was a late lunch/early dinner time, and service was very... More

There is always a line... but it moves quick. You won't mind at all as you admire all the celebrity pics on the wall. this is a tried and true Italian joint. Especially love the chicken francaise, most every app, and especially the desserts.

This restaurant is an icon in Howard Beach so as they are celebrating their 41st anniversary, I decided to try out their anniversary menu. I have to say the management needs to spruce up the decor. It's old and dated, however the food was absolutely delish. I had shrimp scampi with rice, a medley of vegetables and a salad. My... More

I was disappointed on my last couple of visits to this iconic Queens restaurant. The food was nothing special, the atmosphere is as though you are in a large, noisy cafeteria.
