Best place in the area for fast seafood. Great if you are vacationing in the area or driving past on I95 heading north. Easy off the highway easy on. Great selection of fresh seafood with fast service.

We previously lived in CT for many years and Lenny's of Branford was always a popular choice for us to enjoy great food. We now live elsewhere but we returned to CT for a family event in Madison.

Love everything from the chowder to the oysters, shrimp cocktail, fried food and fresh filets. Reasonable prices. Welcoming casual environment.

I don't usually like to stand in line to order a meal but it's definitely worth it here. The menu is varied and has healthy baked and broiled choices in addition to fried. There are gluten free choices, too.

I know Lenny and Joe's Fish Tale is very popular, but my recent visit was not a good one. First, the positive - the steamers were the best that I have ever had!! They were cooked to perfection!! However, the fried clams and onion rings were very greasy. The fried claims were mushy. Although I need to eat glutten-free foods,... More

This is consistently the freshest seafood. The fried seafood platter feeds 2 hungry people. The scallops and whole bellied clams are amazing!

This is our second visit here for fresh seafood. Not greasy at all. Reasonable prices. We had the clam strip dinner, and the fish sandwich special with lobster bisque. Washed it down with a fabulous vanilla milk shake and Iced tea. Yummy.

This restaurant is always my first stop whenever I am in the area. Everything is fresh and delicious. Menu has a wide variety of seafood broiled, sautéed, and fried. Kid friendly with the option of dining at picnic tables outside. My very favorite seafood restaurant.
