Whenever I'm craving a lobster roll or fresh seafood, Lenny's is the place to go. My favorite is the hot buttered lobster roll but I also enjoy the cold lobster salad which is filled with lots of lobster. The trench fries are really good as is their clam chowder. No matter what season, Lenny's seafood is fresh and delicious.

Great service, super food and a welcoming staff at all times. The seafood mac and cheese is out of this world. Cold or hot, the lobster roll is superb.

We went to Lennys with my parents. It was their birthdays and we wanted to take them some place nice. We were originally seated in front of the fireplace but asked to be relocated because the floor was so wonky we were sliding out of our seats. The staff was so friendly! They dont have a gluten free menu but... More

Practically grew up here. The food is excellent and fresh, and the atmosphere is beautiful (especially the outdoor patio). Even during the winter, the fire place and wood panels are very quaint. Price wise, its pretty good/standard for seafood. The staff is okay depending on the day. Unlike the older servers, the young ones tend to stand around and do... More

Generous servings, great seafood, attentive staff, but what's with the bathrooms? Been going to Lenny's for years and with all the improvements over that time they still have gas station bathrooms.

Description
Lenny's sources the best seafood New England has to offer - from house made chowders to fresh lobsters to succulent steamers to clams and oysters on the half-shell. The fried seafood is gently breaded and cooked to order. For the land lubbers, their mouthwatering steaks and famous ribs have been a favorite for over 40 years. Lenny's Indian Head Inn has been recognized by the International Boating Magazine, The New York Times, USA Today and received Zagat's "Award of Distinction." We are open year-round.
