This is a counter service restaurant and the seating is wooden benches. Not the most comfortable place to meet friends you haven't seen in a long time. But, we ordered up and listened for our numbers. The food came quickly and was perfectly done. Fried...More

This Lenny & Joes is perfect for fresh seafood in a low key atmosphere. With the carousel outside kids fit right in. Lobster roll is a winner, fried scallops are certainly fresh and they have more traditional options for pint sized picky eaters. There are...More

Our family loves to go to Lenny and Joe's! The menu offers seafood - fried and broiled as well as a land-lubbers' menu. The kids love the carousel -all proceeds go to charity. We love the informal, family atmosphere. You can bring your own tablecloth...More

Large menu of fresh sea food, fried selections are crisp not greasy and portions are large. This location has an ice cream stand as well with great soft serve. There is a carousel that operates for charity and has raised over $1,000,000.
