Small, lovely place with the best crab cakes in the area. Also excellent salmon at dinner. Wish they would bring back the excellent chicken salad at lunch. Definitely worth a visit!

Leelynn's is a small place and is usually busy but we are typically seated in a reasonable time. Outdoor seating for nice evenings. Indoor seating includes the bar side and a small restaurant side. The food is always good, the drinks are not too expensive, and the service has been good. They also have Coupons available at some points so... More

The food is excellent here - we especially like their 7oz. crabcakes and on Monday evenings they have a crabcake platter special for fourteen dollars which is delicious and a great deal! We also like their Seasonal Salad. Make reservations for Monday evenings since the crabcake special draws folks in and the dining room is small although one can order... More

I went here for dinner on a Wednesday night. I had a cocktail, crab cake, sweet potato fries, and coleslaw. Everything tasted great, except for the coleslaw which was awfully plain tasting. The other two I was with also enjoyed their food and drinks. The prices were a bit high. The service was a bit less than average. Overall, though,... More

A relaxing indoor/outdoor eating establishment. Their crab soup is the best I've tasted and their seasonal salad is terrific.

Leelynn's is tucked away in the back of a neighborhood in Harpers Village. Once you find it, you will remember how to get there as the restaurant is top notch. One of their best dishes are the crab cakes. I am a native Bawlmore boy and have a very discerning taste for said crab cakes. Theirs are the real deal.... More

Recommended by the Innkeeper at The Wayside Inn, we shared the large Mahi-Mahi Tacos, Crab Cake on beet salad entrée for me, and beet salad & Hangar Steak entrée for my wife ... all a culinary delight and highly recommended. Our waiter was awesome, and the freshly brewed coffee topped off the meal.

A hidden gem! The menu is really nice and food is even better. Crabcakes and homemade chips and dip are really good. Summertime outdoor seating is a must and in the winter months the bar inside is a nice space, too. Sometimes they have live music. This is the kind of place you can take the whole family for a...
