We went once in the Summer of 2015 and again this past Summer. Both times we went, we made reservations, arrived, were seated and began the feast. The bisque and macaroni and cheese that accompanied the lobsters were awesome. The lobsters cam regularly, and at one point faster than we were eating them. Great deal and a great experience, especially... More

The waiter made the night, he was fast, attentive and always smiling. The food kept coming out quickly and the drinks were great! Can't wait to go back there again! We hope they don't change a thing because it was perfect!

We went here in search of a great lobster roll (recommended by Florence Griswold Museum) and a beer. We got both. And they were both great. Only slight annoyance was paying a cover charge of $5 for a band that would start only an hour and a half after we got there...we stayed for the first two songs, but then... More

So I called to make reservations in advance. We got there early and had some beers and hung out. The beers were WAY over priced but the outside patio had music and great view of the Sound. Amber was our server who was very bubbly and friendly. We were first sat but NOT first served. The All You Can Eat... More

The wife and I have made Lenny's our regular summer lunchtime escape, especially mid-week when the crowds are a bit less. The burgers are great, the beer is icy cold and their menu offers up an eclectic mix of traditional New England beach fare with their own unique twist. Burger buns are brioche and very tasty, complimenting the very yummy... More
