All dishes were good except the kitchen staff doesn't seem to understand what 'plain boiled shrimp' is. They tried twice but didn't get it right.

Routinely order pizzas to go from this place. Many choices to choose from but honestly a plain or pepperoni is all you need to satisfy the taste buds. Took a season to find our go to pizza joint but happy we came across this one and only 5min drive to boot.

We love going to Lenny's. Great food, great service. We've never had a bad meal here. Strongly recommend. Very popular place so go early or you will wait for a table.

Went on a dinner break and was thoroughly impressed with the food. I ordered the gnocci while my girlfriend ordered a personal pie. The pasta was in a rich sauce, very tasty and huge portion. Likewise with the pizza. Was upset there were no hoagies/sandwiches though. Also the service was very slow and disinterested, not convenient for someone on a... More

I got a pizza to go two nights prior but needed more, so dined in tonight. Garlic bread with cheese, calamari, gnocchi, and tortellini Alfredo were all equally good! Service was great, and the bus boys work their tails off. Something was up at the hostess stand, however, as tables were turned over and remained open a while before they... More

Ordered take out from this restaurant twice during a weeklong family vacation to the beach. First night was a pizza order and the food was great. Next time was a pasta order. Portions were very generous and 4 pasta dinners were shared easily by 6 people. Favorite dishes were the baked ziti and the garlic and oil pasta. Delicious food.... More

We've been here a couple of times. The food is phenomenal. Menu offers something for everybody. Bring your own wine / beer.

Our waitress was very nice. The garlic knots were good, as was the Caesar salad. It seemed like we waited a long time for our food, refills on water, and the check. We ordered the buffalo chicken pizza which did not taste like any buffalo sauce we had ever had. When we asked the waitress about it, she told us... More

There must be an issue getting good service people that are trained properly in this area. We went for a pizza lunch which was very good. Then we went for dinner with high expectations. Food was OK but my dinner came out 15 minutes after my husband's. Because of limited choices in the area it is always busy.

I just returned from a visit to the Jersey shore and wanted to let people know about the dinner my family and I had. The place was highly recommended and we decided to give it a try. Honestly all of the food was pretty average, and extremely expensive for what we received. Everything was just average, everyone at our table... More
