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.

We used to come here for years to get a hot lobster roll and ice cream. The lobster has been chewy that last few visits. Also the portion size for ice cream is a joke.

We have been going to Lenny & Joes for years sometimes almost every weekend during the summer. We never really had any complains until this past weekend. Stopped by before it got really crowded. I always get a lobster roll and honestly I think this was the worst I've ever had. It was very chewy, extremely greasy and not filled... More

We stopped here for a satisfying, quick lunch. They have a variety of very good seafood and outdoor and indoor seating. It was a beautiful day, so sitting outside under a covering was a nice feature.

Whenever in this neck of the woods, this is a must eat place. Whenever I am in CT I make a point of pulling in here for great seafood. Every year they do a new t-shirt. My daughters Uncle gets the best t-shirts for her from here.
