Was here on Memorial Day weekend. Had the shrimp marinara. Got 8 large shrimp in a delicous marinara sauce over linguine. Came with a small salad. Service was good despite being busy/crowded. We arrived early so wait not long (10-15 mins). Very busy, bustling restaurant but has excellent food & reasonable prices. Lenny's has become a family favorite when in... More

We had ate at Lennys clam bar recently and it was awful! The sauce was very hot/spicy even though we asked for the sweet sauce, the waiter did not seem to care, just about getting a tip. The lasagna tasted like it was still frozen; hard and had no taste. The scungilli's were like lead golf balls and made us... More

When you live in New Jersey and you find out you have to go pick someone up at JFK, it sometimes makes you feel a little like you're being punished. Make time for a meal at Lenny's Clam Bar & Restaurant, and you won't feel like that anymore. The arugula salad special with glazed walnuts, cranberries and apples ... as... More

My wife and I eat at Lenny's Clam Bar at least twice a month. The food is always excellent and the service is even better. You can choose sea food, Italian food or ribs and you will be very happy and very full.

Go for late lunch, order oysters on shell, very very fresh and tasty(Surprise us with fresh horse radish source). With big party going on, our main courses (Different pasta) have to wait more than half hour to come out. Serving in big bowls, a lots seafood(Shrimp, squid, conch....) but taste just Ok, nothing special. Service can be better.

I was looking for a good local place for dinner and everyone I spoke to said Lenny's was good. I stopped in last week with a work colleague. I had the Pizza which was the special and Loren had the fried sole. Both were very good and overall this was a nice find. Prices was reasonable and the service was... More

Had a mid day meal here, which was pretty typical of a common Italian Restaurant. Nothing in our meal was particularly bad, but nothing to write home about either. Service was disappointing, unfriendly and cold. Everyone seemed kind of miserable. Bathrooms and dining area were clean. Salad was ok, pasta was good, main course was alright. Everything was average at... More

We chose Lenny's for a night out when staying in the area for a flight out of JFK. Food was great, staff friendly and efficient, and portions were huge. Even the kids meal was a good size to fill a hungry kid with a good appetite. Tried several seafood dishes which were bursting with loads of fresh seafood and my... More
