We've been going there for 24 years, and while I have grown tired of it, my wife still likes the place. The prices have gotten higher than the atmosphere demands. The workers are all very nice and service is very good.

There was a line to order but it went pretty quickly I don't like seafood but was with my friend who wanted to go. I didn't mind going to a seafood place because the chicken sandwiches are so good. it was warm enough to sit outside in the summer there is a carousel.

A nice stop after spending time on the sea shore. It is the closest restaurant (if you could call it that way) to the state park. For a winter day, this place was packed. There are no waiters - you have to wait in line to order (like any fast food place) yet the line goes pretty quick. The place... More

Lenny &Joe's Fish Tale has been a long-time favorite stop for my family. Whether you want burgers, hot dogs, clam chowder or grilled chicken, they have it. Service is fast and friendly and prices are reasonable. The quality of food is consistent year-round. Expect a longer wait time during the summer months, but, it will be worth the wait. This...

Got a nice fish sandwich, Dr. Pepper and small order of onion rings. The sandwich was very large. Good lunch crowd and off season as they have a large outdoor seating are for the locals and out of towners and beach goers during peak summer weather. Lots of choice and fast service.

Everyone raves about this place and it's a local favorite, but it's personally not MY favorite. I thought it was greasy. You can fry fish without it being this greasy. The reason I didn't give them fewer stars was because they have great prices and a great environment and their staff was friendly

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. To our surprise there was a Lenny & Joe's there and we just had to enjoy another Lenny's feast. The lobster roll... More
