Lee's has the best thin crust pizza on Staten Island. Just be warned that on Friday and Saturday nights you will have a wait for a table but it is well worth it. You are not rushed once seated so sit back and enjoy.

A true landmark on Staten Island and terrific pizza! Everyone who works there is friendly and attentive. There is no other pizza like it in the world.

I literally pass fifteen pizza places to drive to this one and its totally worth it. This is a very casual place where you can go with family or friends. They have a back room so you can sit there with your kids and not be interupting the bar people.

Basically a bar, they make an excellent pizza. There's no sign outside but there right on the corner and you can't miss it. It's not fancy and your date won't be impressed but the food is good and they are consistent. The prices are reasonable but for me I usually grab a pie to go and enjoy it away from... More

Pizza always done to perfection. Whether take out or eat-in, you can bet it will be fresh and scrumptuous. What we like best is the thin crust. Place is small and since it is so popular, tends to be crowded, usually a wait. But worth it.

had dinner here after trying the pizza a year ago. the pizza was good. However the dinner we had tonight was awful. We ordered ziti with meatballs and ziti with eggplant parmesean. The meatballs were hard as a rock and served dry. The sauce in both dishes was dry and overcooked. The meals were so bad. We told the waitress... More

The "Cheers" of the south shore. Everyone knows Lee's Tavern. So much so that there isn't even a sign. A traditional 'Old Staten Island' establishment. Great food / cold beer / good drinks / terrific pizza. If you're on the island, it's worth a visit.
