Brought our 2 1/2 year old granddaughter today on a ride to the shore...we've been many times and it's always consistent. Very accommodating with coloring menu and crayons, extra crackers while she waited for food. Chowder was very good today, we prefer the broth style they serve. Wednesday is all you can eat fish fry. My husband had seconds for... More

Just okay. Chowder is not very flavorful. Batter on fried food is fine if that's all your looking for. Porch patio is looking onto the parking lot. Won't go back.

I've come to Lenny & Joe's for years and always had great food. Today was a disaster. Whole belly clams had gigantic bellies that were especially dark green and black. We sent them back and the waitress said they have looked like that since last evening, so we should choose something else. When clam strips arrived to replace them, they... More

In my opinion nothing comes close to their soft shell crabs and fried seafood in this part of the state. Very casual and lots of outdoor seating during the summer months. Yum.

A few years ago I went to the location in Madison and really like it. I also enjoy this type of restaurant quite a bit. So, I definitely had reasonable expectations. The meal was not what I had grown accustomed to. The NE Chowder was very watery. I am not sure if that was intentional or not, but I definitely... More

Great food, large portions, value pricing, friendly and attentive staff; what more could you ask for? During the summer months, we're big fans of Bill's right down the road (can't beat the atmosphere there on their deck), but the more we go to Lenny and Joe's the more we realize the quality really is superior. Fresh Fresh Sea Food!!

I went back for lunch after about a year and I've found the place less enticing than I remembered it. The decor is very essential: the maid comes to clean the carpet with a broom and dustpan while the clients are eating... The service is not as accurate as it should be: I had to ask for more water and... More

This is a chain of casual fish restaurants. We were immediately seated on a Saturday night. There is freshly baked bread on the table which was delicious. For dinner we enjoyed the fried fish platter ( average taste, could have been tastier. The French fries were thick and delicious) and a broiled casserole xox lobster and scallops. Service was fast.... More

Had a desire for some seafood so stopped by Fish Tale. The place is casual and the food is delicious. Started off with a mug of their clam chowder and it was chocked full of clams and potatoes. Very delicious. Next wife and I ordered clam strips that were tasty and fried perfectly. Only problem we should have split one... More

We have eaten at Lenny and Joe's Fishtail many, many times and the food is always good and consistent. I especially enjoy their chowder and the fried shrimp dinner. Depending on the time of year you will find it VERY busy but it is well worth the wait.
