Been here many times and always pleased. Food is excellent - hubby usually gets grouper and I get shrimp. Hush puppies are one of, if not the best we've had. If you have room the desserts are heavenly. Service always pleasant.

My wife used to eat here when she was a child,and remembers good food in a nice atmosphere. Our recent trip there in September reinforced these good memories. This is good Southern food in a clean environment with fine service.

Wow, talk about going back in time. Lots of homey dishes and offerings. Got the fish, decent. Lots of frying here. The food is a little to much for me with lots of frying but can be good for some others as they get good ratings. I would probably go down the road and check out those other places myself... More

The hostess thoughtfully seated our family of two adults and three children (ages 10 and under) near the beautiful salt water aquarium and provided coloring books and crayons to keep the children occupied. That always wins points with the parents. The food was AMAZINGLY good and the atmosphere was wonderful. Our last visit was almost ten years ago and we... More

During our Thanksgiving vacation at the beach we ate at Lee's Inlet Kitchen twice. The hush puppies were amazing. Sweet and very light and along with the honey butter they were irresistible. The sautéed fantail shrimp were excellent. The staff and waitresses were so friendly and attentive. We had such a good experience the first night we went back again.

We ate here three nights in a row. The fried flounder is cooked just the way my spouse likes it and of course the Kona coffee hits the spot for her. I had the grilled scallops and it was cooked to perfection. Meals come with a nice salad and fresh hush puppies. Will definitely return.

What a wonderful evening of great seafood! This may have been the best seafood I've ever tasted. I recommend the Crab cake, Flounder and the River Shrimp. From what I understand, they make their own condiments... cocktail sauce, tarter sauce, etc. You can't go wrong here. Tip: Closed December and January. And, They have a great early dining menu 4:30-5:30.

Never had we had such a bang for our buck. We normally eat at a different restaurant each time we go to MB but now it will be Lee's at least until we get through the whole menu. Family friendly, great staff, no fancy names or great view of the bay, just GREAT FOOD. How this place doesn't have a... More
