The thin crust pizza is amazing - some of NYC's best. Nice local spot - good crowd. Had a blast. There's also an off menu chicken/ sausage sandwich that's a real treat. Wait time for food is quite long so order early!

Lee's Tavern is a great place to go with friends or just a couple. Great bar and bartenders. Polite and friendly. Pizza is good and crispy. Waitstaff a lot of fun and congenial. Efficient and never say no to a request. My favorite pizza is the margherita with fresh mozzarella and anchovies on the side. Fried calamari is very good... More

Stopped here our first night on the Island. Had to wait a bit 15min. Calamari with medium/hot marinara was really spicy (loved it) don't get the hot unless you like HOT...really good! Had a clam pie and a pepperoni, sausage, onion, and pepper, both delicious both very thin crispy crust.

Have been going to Lee"s tavern for years. It is one of the best pizza places on Staten Island. Its an old time bar, but that only adds to the atmosphere. Haven't had anything i didn't like there. Some times you have to wait and the staff becomes to busy, but its worth your time to try.

A couple of pitchers, fresh mozzarella/ricotta/marinara pie, white clam pie, buffalo calamari, cheesy garlic bread with family and friends has memories written all over it... Throw some tunes on the juke box and enjoy !!!

A very friendly place known for its clam pies. You have to have one, these are the best. Period. The other food choices are also good, and plenty of cold beer.

Always a toss up between here and Deninos both are great and different. Small place always a wait but worth it. If u can walk straight in a place the food must not be that good. We have been going here 35 years never changed and dont want it to.

Thank Philc2020
