"It's that Good"

This place is so good that there isn't even a name out front saying that this is "Lee's Tavern". If you are looking for fine dining then look elsewhere; Lee's in an old fashioned joint where they serve great Italian food at a fair price. My daughter had the Baked Ziti ( delicious and enough for... read more

SI is chock full of good pizza, but Lee's has been among the best of the best for years. As the name suggests, you are feasting on this delicious stuff in a bar. It's an alluring, old tyme bar that happens to have some AWESOME pizza.

Kept hearing and reading about it and had to try it. We shared a small pizza and scungilli with hot sauce. Both were great. Go if you like thin crust pizza

This place is literally a local bar that serves good thin crust pizza and cold draft beer. There are other menu selections also that are worth trying. It's not as cheap as the decor would mske you think but the clam pie really is worth the trip. It has a loyal following plus out of area visitors so unless you... More

After watching the sunset over the bay, we went searching for some dinner. We did a search in the area and Yelp directed us to Lee's... with its 5 star reviews. We thought we'd give it a try. Had the pizza... and we were really impressed. Super thin cracker crust. Delicious sauce and sausage. Friendly service. Highly, highly recommended!

I am a huge fan of Lee's! It has always had great food and service. I go at least three times a month, it is truly a hidden gem on the island. The only things that I can complain about is the wait for seating but thats because everyone wants to be there!

Went to Lee's this afternoon with a friend. Place is so noisy that having a conversation is almost an impossibility. Calamari was excellent. Pizza was terrible. Bland sauce and hardly any cheese. Tables not clean or washed bet. customers. Just wiped down with paper napkin. Definitely will not return. I was quite surprised as I had read pretty good reviews... More

Lee's is a great bar that whether you're a regular or a first timer, you'll feel right at home. All the food is good but their pizza is the best. Thin crust and made to order. The only down side to Lee's is that it is usually packed. That's always a good sign of a good place. Try mid afternoon... More

Locally bar best known for its thin New York Style Pizza. No frills, always crowded and cash only. Try the Clam Pizza or the Garbage Pizza.... Expect to wait and expect noise but if you love pizza- Islanders claim it's the best!
