“Yummy fresh seafood”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

We had the steamers, hot buttered lobster rolls & clams with the bellies. The seafood was fresh & tasty. Very comforting on a cold, rainy night.

“Still great after all these years”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

I enjoyed my meal with my wife, mother and grandmother. The fried whole clams are among the best in the state. The service was quick and attentive. As other reviewers have mentioned the rooms tend to be noisy and conversation can be challenging particularly for the older clientele. The price is not cheap but reasonable for the area.

“For fresh fried seafood, this is the place!”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

My family has been eating at Lenny and Joe's for nearly 20 years. The service is fast and the food is always hot, fresh, and delicious. Fried clams are a favorite, but the broiled fish dishes are also excellent. And the onion rings...they are the best I've had anywhere. Their cole slaw is crunchy and not over-dressed, but instead I usually opt for a side salad with their tasty house made ranch.

This place gets packed in the summer, even in the early evening as many older folks like this place. It's good for families with kids, too. The place tends to get loud, so don't expect quiet if you go.

I have relatives from Southeastern CT who now live in Europe, and they always want Lenny and Joe's when they're in the States. All my out of area relatives want to go when they visit! Consistently good food.

“Generous helpings, Fresh Seafood at Good Prices”
Reviewed June 16, 2011

Wife and daughter shared a huge platter of fried shrimp, slaw and fries for $19.99. A huge platter! I got a clam roll platter with fries and slaw. Slaw was as good as it gets. The clams were on a large buttered roll, about half a pound or more. My son got a shrimp roll, also piled high with shrimp. He also thought the slaw was the best. The best deal was souvenir T-Shirts for six bucks! We had paid 15 dollars for a similar one a week before!

“Very Dissapointed”
Reviewed March 31, 2010

Well, I heard such good things and was greatly dissapointed. Portions were smaller than I expected, I had 5 "stuffed" shrimp, but I has puzzled since there wasn't any stuffing, just breadcrumbs drenced in butter, odd. No crab, no scallop, no celery..very bland. No salad, just fries. What a bummer. Looked rundown.
