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 am so sorry to hear about your last experience with us. There is no excuse for that kind of time lapse between drinks, apps, & dinner. I hope you will give us another try to show you that your last experience was not the norm! 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

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!

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

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
