Lee Lynn's has long been known for its spectacular crabcakes. You won't be disappointed I'm sure. There are other food is very good also. You might enjoy the bar atmosphere as well.

If you want to just chill with friends after work, go! There's indoor and outdoor on nice weather days. Staff is very friendly! One thing I'm sad about is the Calamari is plain and not like it used to come. Bring it back! Still, food is good, atmosphere is casual, won't break the bank and if you bring good company... More

Management response:

Thanks for the great review! I'm sorry you don't like the romesco sauce that comes with the calamari. We do still have the sweet chili drizzle, you can always ask your server for it the next time you come in & order the calamari! More

We have lived in EC for many years and had a bad dinner here a long time ago but thought we would give it another chance based on the reviews. The waitress was very nice but the food was barely average. The shrimp and grits had shrimp that were right out of a frozen bag and the grits were a... More

Sorry to hear you had such a bad experience. It really surprises me that you didn't like our soup. It's one of our most popular items! We actually don't bring in frozen food. I'm sorry the shrimp & grits weren't to your liking. I'm not sure what to say about the soda issue. We have free refills. Thanks for giving... More

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!
