“Not nearly as good as I remembered”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

This place was 5 stars on our last visit several years ago. We miss the employees that worked there then and apparently made the difference with the quality of food and service. We tried Lee's a couple of times this trip and the food and service have definitely gone downhill. Disappointing.

“Only the freshest fish!”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Not pretentious and alwasy good, Lee's serves the best grilled fish! Their potato salad and cole slaw are perfect sides too.
The only thing we dislike is the lack of sufficient parking in front of the restaurant, but if you visit for an early dinner, it usually isn't a problem.

“Dry Ribs - Owner is Disrespectful to Employees”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Ribs were very dry. Service wasn't the best. Pretty slow for not being that busy. Lee, the owner put the mail in the coffin when he whistles and snaps at his waitstaff to get their attention. Totally rude! Would have given the food and service another try had it not been for that display of disrespect.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

We stayed across the street at the Royal Palm Beach and walked to Lee's the first night and enjoyed our meals. Ribs, burgers & wahoo fish between us and all loved our meals so much that in our 7 days we went back 4 different times. The last night they knew we would be leaving & gave us a round of free drink of choice. Great food & great management. There are big tarpon that love to eat French fries right in front of the deck. We fed them each visit.

“Good Food Poor Service.”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

The food here was really good but the service was terrible! If they had better service I would have given the place a better review.... Took forever to get drinks and no one even acknowledged us after we sat down at our table for at least 15 minutes. The palace wasn't that busy and there was no excuse.
