We usually go to Leelynn's for a nice relaxing happy hour during the week. Food is good, love the fish tacos. Good selection of wine. Very laid back cozy place. summer time outdoor seating if very relaxing.

You can count on consistency at this neighborhood spot. Nothing fancy or offputting. Food is always good-especially crab cakes. Good drink specials

So happy that you found us!! Hearing positive feedback from new customers is very rewarding. Although we are in the same building as the liquor store we aren’t affiliated with them at all. If you can’t finish a bottle of wine while you are dining...More

This is my go-to place when meeting friends for lunch or taking my god-daughter to a grown-up lunch. Their food is fresh, on the lighter side, and we'll prepared. I often get a chicken salad or a soup. Energetic wait staff are friendly and helpful...More

Thanks for choosing us even with a large party!! We do zest the shrimp salad with lemon, sounds like the cook might have added a little too much that batch. So happy to hear you will be back!

Thanks for the great review!! We appreciate you continuing to come back even with slow food & service. We have a very small kitchen & sometimes can’t keep up!! You’ll be happy to hear that crab cake prices went down in price!!

Enjoyed the food and service. Only negative is the location is a bit strange (my GPS couldn't find it) and we sat out on the patio but it's alongside the highway, so not the best ambiance. But definitely worth a visit!

Sorry, Trip advisor doesn’t send messages right thru so I just got this message! We do have 3 TVs in the bar but we are closed on Sundays. Sorry again for the delayed response.
