Description: Lenny's sources the best seafood New England has to offer - from house made chowders to fresh lobsters to succulent steamers to clams and oysters on the half-shell. The fried seafood is gently breaded and cooked to order. For the land lubbers, their mouthwatering steaks and famous ribs have been a favorite for over 40 years. Lenny's Indian Head Inn has been recognized by the International Boating Magazine, The New York Times, USA Today and received Zagat's "Award of Distinction." We are open year-round.

“Good deal!”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Can get crowded but at times they have great specials. Very local and rustic and a fun place along the shore line. Very authenic New England.

“Hit or Miss”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

We are frequent visitors because we love fried seafood. In the past we were always very happy with our meals, but lately the food is not always up to par. Sometimes it is perfectly prepared but other times it's overcooked. Maybe the cause is different chefs. I think it will be awhile before we head back there again.

“Perfect late summer experience”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

From the outdoor deck acoustic band, to perfectly cooked fish and chips, salmon and homemade strawberry shortcake....this fish shack met and surpassed all my hopes for a summer dinner. So much fun!

“GREAT seafood!”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Really, seriously, excellent seafood. Try the Broiled Seafood Platter. The lobster is to die for. Eat out on the deck, overlooking beautiful sea grass. Then take a scenic Branford, CT drive. This is where the locals go for the freshest most yummy seafood around.

“Lobster, lobster, lobster”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

If you like lobster this is the place! In nice weather you can sit on the deck overlooking the salt marsh. On Tuesday they have an insanely priced lobsters for 2 with chowder, calamari, apple crisp and coffee for $29.95. What a deal! They also have lobster salad which is delicious! I know they have a lot of other foods but I focus on the lobster and great selection of beer.
