Had lunch here while visiting family in the Baltimore area, and it was an exquisite experience. Leelynn's has a varied menu that will suit the needs of almost any palate (our lunch party proved that quite well, as we had three adults (one of whom is a near vegan), one toddler, and one infant). The adults all had the crab... More

This local restaurant is tucked away, "remote" from any of the main shopping areas, malls, or strip malls. In fact, without the nudge from restaurants.com ($15 voucher if you buy a BJ's membership), I never would have known it existed. For a rainy, Autumn day, the patio wasn't an option (this is a highly reviewed amenity), but the lounge and... More

Thanks for giving us a try! You are right, the patio is very popular among our customers. Hopefully you'll be able to make it back before the weather turns cold for good! Sorry to hear service was slow. We will do better next time! More

At the advice of some locals, we gave Leelynn's a try. At first I was very impressed. They have a nice menu, great appetizers and beer choices and a pleasant outdoor setting. As the night went on, the honeymoon faded. It seemed that at least 30 minutes passed between the drink phase, the appetizer phase and the dinner phase (and... More

I visited with a friend who had recommended this place. I was very pleased with the food. Everything was fresh and the server was very friendly and never intrusive. Prices were very fair. The atmosphere is more comfortable/casual than classy but it's very clean. While not what I would consider fine dining, not every meal one eats out has to... More

Lee Lyn's - consistent, great food. Crab soup and crab cake-outstanding. Quiet atmosphere, good service. Nice variety on the menu. Amazing ice cream and apple crisp!

Thank Lauren B
Management response:

Thanks for the great review! So happy to hear which food items are your favorites, which happen to be some of our most popular dishes. I see that the crab cake is one of them! I hope you have taken advantage of crab cake Monday. It's such a good deal! More

Have been to Leelynn's many times - always enjoy the atmosphere. The outdoor patio is very nice with a group and the bar area has a nice atmosphere. The dining room is perfectly fine, but it's my third choice. Great burger, good crab cake, many good salads. My favorite item is the Seasonal Salad w/blackened salmon - so good! I... More

Have been here twice and both times I was very impressed by the food. Salads are fresh and big. Good flavor and a nice option in the summer. Turkey burger is also really good - super moist and lots of flavor. Definitely pay the extra $2 and get the sweet potato fries - big portion and really well cooked. Turkey... More

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!

Thank Michael H
Management response:

Thanks for the great review! So happy to hear that you think our crab cakes are the best. Our menu does change seasonally, so there is always a chance that the chicken salad will be back OR maybe a new item that you will like even better! More
