On our option list for a quick dinner without hassle! Always preferred during the warmer months with the outside dining a plus but we will make the trip anytime, as it is always a good stop.

Leelynn's food and service are always good. It's a nice neighborhood sort of restaurant where you can be comfortable and eat outside in the summer. It has a large, separate bar in addition to the dining room where you can also order lunch or dinner. The menu and wine list are more than adequate. We go there on a regular... More

had a snowman martini that was delicious and sandwiches that were good but what is completely unforgettable was the Cream of Crab soup. one of the best i've ever had.... and i've had a lot! Rich, creamy, and chunks of lump crabmeat with a sprinkle of old bay on top. it was exceptional!

Went for lunch while visiting family in Ellicott City. Two of us had a crab cake for lunch, my wife had a grilled cheese sandwich which had slivers of apple, which she thought were much better than expected. As for the crab cakes, big chunks of crab, light on the breading, with a mild tartar sauce. Excellent flavor, easily the... More

They are chintzy with the bread. If you ask for more, they give you ONE little piece. And for God's sake, fill up the wine glass. Charge more if you have to but that little splash of wine is an insult............the food is ok most of the time. It's nice to sit outside in the summertime. Can get a little... More

LeeLynns is our favorite local go-to. You can count on the quality of the food to be consistent good and the wait staff pleasant. Be prepared to wait on weekend (evenings) so call ahead or make a reservation. In warmer weather there is a pleasant outdoor terrace and we have even seen patrons bring their dogs (well-behaved of course!) Some... More

We have been dropping by LeeLynns for years, and, while it is usually crowded, we always get a great meal. Small plates, hamburgers, salads, delicious fish, crab cakes, soup, steak and drinks are on the menu, with seasonal favorites that rotate. I especially enjoy the beers and seasonal cocktails. We like sitting in the bar where there are TVs and... More

We met a friend from DC here for lunch. The food was adequate although my burger was under cooked. The Maryland crab soup was good. The cream of crab soup was so rich that after a cup of it our friend was not able to finish his salad. It served our purpose in travelling to Ellicott City but I would... More
