Prices are a bit high but you're paying more for atmosphere than cuisine. You're right on the marina so if you love boats you'll want to stop here. Service is slow. We had ribs and burgers and no real desire to go back.

My husband and I visited this spot last week. We had a great time. It's right on the bay, and all the food is cooked on the grill. Great drink specials 1.50 beers and the live band is awesome.

After seven years visiting the island, we finally decided to try Lee's. The reviews have been mixed and thought it might not be worth a visit. We were wrong and found the service to be friendly and the food good. My wife had the Mahi Mahi and the portion was very large with a nice butter sauce and prepared nicely.... More

It's really to bad that they have to find a new location after all these years, and had just redone the whole inside of the restaurant. The food was excellent as usual.

Lee's is consistently good....fresh fish and fair prices. A friendly island vibe...live music and great water views. I've been coming here since 1989 and was saddened to learn Lee's might be forced to move/close...a lease matter (I think). This is a Simpson Bay staple that represents a local business, serves both tourists and residents and employees many people. Enjoy it... More

We arrived at Lee's around 10:05 on a Friday evening after standing at the front for I don't know... More
