My whole family loves to eat at Lenny's! If you want great, fresh seafood then I most certainly recommend this restaurant! Even my 4yr old looks forward to eatting there and she's not a seafood fan, they have hotdogs and cheese burgers for the young kids as well as a whole children's menu! I've been going there since I was... More

Practically grew up here. The food is excellent and fresh, and the atmosphere is beautiful (especially the outdoor patio). Even during the winter, the fire place and wood panels are very quaint. Price wise, its pretty good/standard for seafood. The staff is okay depending on the day. Unlike the older servers, the young ones tend to stand around and do... More

Generous servings, great seafood, attentive staff, but what's with the bathrooms? Been going to Lenny's for years and with all the improvements over that time they still have gas station bathrooms.

Went for a Saturday lunch and the place wasn't crowded. We were well taken care of and our server was very helpful explaining the different options and giving advice. He even brought us some chowder samples to try upon our question about the differences. Perfect service! The bisque and the New England clam chowder were both excellent. And the fried... More

Had a great dinner here with my family and girlfriend. You must try the softshell crab sandwhich. It is a whole softshell crab for only $15. It is deep fried and delicious with tartar sauce. We also got the hot wings for an appetizer which smell more hot than they actually taste lol. We were a table of 4 and... More

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.
