Great Pizza

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!

I visited Lee's tavern with a few friends and not to my surprise it was as nice as my last visit a few years back. The Rangers playoff game was coming on so the place was packed, but that didn't stop our host Cathy from finding us a great table near the bar. You can see it's a neighborhood eatery,... More

Lee's offers an awesome thin crust pizza. While basically a bar that sells pizza, there is minimal decor and not much space. Smaller than most places, you can end up waiting a bit for a table or even for an order to go. But still a great tasting pie worth venturing out for. Go earlier than the standard dinner hour...
