Passing through and found this place using the Trip Advisor app. The owner was welcoming and personable and the sandwiches were very good. Loved the sandwich choices, well beyond ham and cheese. Lots of prosciutto and salami options and served on great bread.

We checked Trip Advisor while traveling through Lee and saw the glowing recommendations so we tried it. We were very happy!
They have great sandwiches, using only the finest ingredients, at reasonable prices. The owner was personable and offered us a free sample of his home made ices, yum yum. Nothing fancy, but if good sandwiches is what you are after this is by all means the place to go.

What a GREAT place!! I discovered this wonderful restaurant while on a trip to the outlet mall in Lee, MA. It is just up the road from the mall.
Tasty, fresh food. Extremely friendly service. Very reasonable prices. A winning combination for sure.
Feel confident that when you leave this restaurant you will leave happy because you had a really good experience there AND because you helped a small business owner compete with the big guys.
I now make it a point to go here when I drive out from Albany, NY.
A destination well worth the trip!

We were here on a cool fall afternoon and arrived after the regular lunch rush. The person behind the counter seemed to be the owner and he greeted us warmly. Since the restaurant was empty, he told us to find a table and he would serve us there. I don't think this is typical when they are busy. We each ordered the chowder and a sandwich. The only mistake we made was not splitting a sandwich as we had way too much food. I have always thought that Legal Seafood makes the best chowder but after having it here, I am no longer sure. It is amazing. The sandwiches offer a range of interesting ingredients and are terrific as well. A great choice but come hungry.
