This restaurant has been in business since 1939, and can't be beat for down-home comfort food. We love to go there for breakfast. Heart healthy it isn't, but boy is it good.

Food is inconsistent and one of the days we where there we waited for 30 minutes just for silverware, and over 1 1/2 hours to get our food. Some days are better than others. Its amazing to me that in this area anyone can over cook fish but they can here. Though other days the food is good. Stick with... More

What a pleasant surprise. We met a friend of ours here for dinner the other night and it was nice to see that Lee's offers the same quality cooking, great service and friendly atmosphere they did years ago. The onion rings appetizer were some of the best we've ever had. My meal, the seafood platter, $17 was excellent but a... More

Centrally located, Lee's is a family restaurant that's been around since 1939. The menu is varied and reasonably priced, and all of us enjoyed our evening meals. My daughter was especially taken with her crab cakes order. Nothing fancy, just tasty food that obviously attracts locals, too.

Reasonably priced food with good flavor and served with a smile makes this place a sure bet for a good meal. Nothing special about the decor but the food is well worth the price and the staff is welcoming.

My wife and I stopped by for breakfast and found it to filled with small town atmosphere. Truly a locals place where everyone is know as "Sugar" or "Hon". We had omelets with toast or biscuits and they had a down-home flavor that you won't find in one of the chains. My wife had a side of grits that tasted... More

This restaurant has been around for decades and has always maintained a large following of local residents and visitors. Many who have moved away always make this a stop when they come back to the area. Their deserts are all homemade and regulars (whether locals or visitors) know that it is a good idea to put your pie order in... More
