Service was very prompt and professional. Food arrived quickly. Waitress was very attentive to our needs. Food was hot and tasty. Prices were reasonable. Would go again.

They have the best clam strips and shrimp around, lightly breaded and fried to perfection. They have a great menu with plenty of seafood and fish choices. They are now open for the season 7 days a week.

Lena's is one of those out-of-the-way, old fashioned sea-food places that serves good seafood at reasonable prices.
