The bar/lounge is an excellent spot for lunch or Happy Hour. All the food is excellent, drinks are 50% off during Happy Hour and their crabcake is the best you will find in the Columbia/ Ellicott City area. During the summer you can dine outside as well.

I love this place as it has both a bar area which is informal and a restaurant area as well which is casual. The crab cakes are "the bomb". Probably the best Maryland crab cakes I have ever had given the fact that they are made out of lump crab meet and no or minimal filler. The crab cakes are... More

It makes us happy to hear when someone enjoys our place so much! If you like our crab cakes you should give our cream of crab a try too. It's another one of our most popular dishes! Thanks for the great review!! More

Two of my friends and I went to Lee Lynn's the Wednesday before Thanksgiving for dinner and we were not disappointed. We started at the bar while we waited about 5 minutes for a table to open up and the wine selection was good and the bar tender made a good recommendation for us. When we got out seat, the... More

If you want to just chill with friends after work, go! There's indoor and outdoor on nice weather days. Staff is very friendly! One thing I'm sad about is the Calamari is plain and not like it used to come. Bring it back! Still, food is good, atmosphere is casual, won't break the bank and if you bring good company... More

Thanks for the great review! I'm sorry you don't like the romesco sauce that comes with the calamari. We do still have the sweet chili drizzle, you can always ask your server for it the next time you come in & order the calamari! More

We have lived in EC for many years and had a bad dinner here a long time ago but thought we would give it another chance based on the reviews.

Had lunch here while visiting family in the Baltimore area, and it was an exquisite experience. Leelynn's has a varied menu that will suit the needs of almost any palate (our lunch party proved that quite well, as we had three adults (one of whom is a near vegan), one toddler, and one infant). The adults all had the crab... More

This local restaurant is tucked away, "remote" from any of the main shopping areas, malls, or strip malls. In fact, without the nudge from restaurants.com ($15 voucher if you buy a BJ's membership), I never would have known it existed. For a rainy, Autumn day, the patio wasn't an option (this is a highly reviewed amenity), but the lounge and... More

At the advice of some locals, we gave Leelynn's a try. At first I was very impressed. They have a nice menu, great appetizers and beer choices and a pleasant outdoor setting. As the night went on, the honeymoon faded. It seemed that at least 30 minutes passed between the drink phase, the appetizer phase and the dinner phase (and... More
