Fresh Char-Broiled Salmon Filet
Lenny and Joe's Fish Tale is the best. We've been going weekly for years.
THE BEST COLESLAW I HAVE EVER HAD! It's always fresh and never ever dry! So delicious! I have yet to find another cole slaw that I like as much!
This is where I always go to get consistently perfect whole fried clams. The best I have ever had anywhere and I never even one bad clam here. I've been a fan of the Fish Tale since they opened in the 1980s. Always friendly, excellent service and great seafood!
DELICIOUS! I love fish tales food, it is always cooked perfectly. The portions are big.The service is amazing. Very friendly staff.
Delicious fresh fried shrimp. Cole slaw and fries are so good. Also wonderful customer service!! Best place on the shoreline for seafood.
Since I was a young girl in the 70's, Lenny and Joe's Fishtale has been a part of my fondest memories. Back then it was always our last stop on the way home from Hammonasset Beach, and the best part of the day. In 1996, my husband and I even went there for our first date after a day at the beach. 24 years and two children later, we still enjoy our regular visits to Lenny and Joe's in Madison, CT. no matter the time of year. Rain, snow, or shine it's always a good day for their seafood. We have traveled to many cities over the years, and have yet to find a seafood restaurant that we love as much as Lenny and Joe's. Every other place always pales in comparison. Thank you L&J's for always consistently serving delicious meals and delivering excellent and efficient customer service. We are fans for life!
Steamers, Seafood combo platter with whole belly clams plus fried shrimp platter (both supersized) - every time all the time. Good portions and oh so good. We order a second fried combo just before we are done to take home so we can have it again the next day because just once is not enough.
We came during what might be considered off season and the lobster roll was such a treat. Absolutely delicious, made me feel like it was summer again!
Lenny & Joe Fried Clam Strips are the perfect meal to introduce picky-eaters (read: children accustomed to pizza, chicken nuggets and Mac n cheese) to seafood and create a family tradition of sitting outside in a beach town to enjoy great food and family company. The carousel and ice cream just might also give you an excuse to go back again in the near future to enjoy your favorite menu item (shrimp, anyone?).
Omg this was the best dinner we had all weekend. The crab cake was amazing and the coleslaw was to die for! We also had fried scallops and cod that my BF loved. So reasonably priced. Wish we didn't live so far away.
this light and healthy charbroiled salmon was excellent...so tasty, and very reasonable..highly recommend....I substituted cole slaw, as i dont like rice, was not a problem..
Friend Shrimp Platter & Fried Clam Strip Platter. Food is always great and consistant. Never crunchy / over cooked or full of grease. Portion and food quality is excellent. As I moved a couple times over 20 years, there is no comparison. I always travel back to the Madison lenny & Joes.
We camp every year at Hammonasset State Park. Included in our week stay are not one but 2 noghts eating dinner at Lenny and Joes. From the delicious fried calamari all the way to the sundaes for dessert, we love the whole experience. One year we drove from NY just for the day to go to Lenny and Joe's. It is our favorite!
They are always cooked perfectly and so delicious! 35 years going to Lenny and Joe's and food is always amazing
The very best lobster roll in the State!
Hot and delicious GREAT
Although my favorite dish is the Fried clam strips, anything I've ever had at Fish Tales, has been beyond excellent! And the best thing that a lot of people don't resize, being in a shore town setting, is that they are open ALL YEAR long! I can get my fish fix anytime of the year. I recommend to anyone looking for fresh seafood, to give this place a shot, you won't be disappointed!
Always good at Lenny and Joe's. The last couple of times though, they did not have BIG bellies, but were good anyway.
Best seafood and drinks anywhere!
Yumola. There are many great items on the menu, but its hard for me to stray from the scallops. Though oh the clamstrips are great and really you have to try the scrod. Oh nad lobster...never mind -- just go frequently enough yo try all the seafood and fish options. Delish.
Butter-ly delicious.... no where can you get a lobster 🦞 roll like this!
The crab roll is delicious and something you don't find on a menu anywhere else. Also, Fishtale chowder is the best around.
Best lobster roll ever! The coleslaw and sweet potato fries are great, too! My husband always gets the Fried Seafood Combination Platter that's full of delicious shrimp, clams, scallops, etc. We can always count on a super meal when we stop at Lenny and Joe's!!
The best whole belly fried clams in Ct. I've also had soft shell crab when it was in season. That too was the best I ever had!
I have been eating here for 20 years. It was our go to after camping. Just love it. I'm driving two hours today just for this dish. Be ready. 👅
They are so amazingly fresh. I've been coming here since i was little. great food great ppl No where else for me for my seafood cravings!!
By far the best fish tacos I have ever eaten! The fish is so delicate, the sauce is so tastey! Can't go wrong with ordering this item!
Sweet, juicy and oh so tender!
Love this place! The fried shrimp platter is the best. The only place I will order fried shrimp when eating out. Perfect shrimp size, good portions and great batter texture. I've been a fan since 1991 when I spent the summer lifeguarding at Hammonassett.
My wife wanted to walk the beach for her milestone birthday. We went to Hammonasset Beach . When we arrived we decided to look for a place for lunch and Lenny & Joe's was right there. A server came out and told us how to order during the Covid environment. We had lobster rolls and a side of fries. The best lobster roll we have had in a long time- lots of lobster and a nice toasted roll. The fries were tremendous also. We would highly recommend this establishment. Please help them out during Covid. You will be satisfied.
OMG!! Best of the best! In taste quality and price. Luvin Land Js
Best shrimp i have ever had!
Nothing beats their hot buttered lobster roll! They're simply the best!
Former Ct resident, visiting my son. Lenny & Joe's is always on the stop list whenever we come back to CT. Love love the whole belie fried clams. always cooked to perfection.
Best Seafood Platter around! Fried Shrimp Patter is to die for! Don't forget to order Sweet Potatoe Fries!!!
Fried Gulf Shrimp Roll
The shrimp roll is so big you have to eat some of the shrimp first to get to the rest of the roll. And I always get a lobster roll to share. The best lobster roll ever!
I had the salmon with ginger sauce, rice & vegetables. It was delicious. The temperature of the food was perfect and a very generous portion, as well. Would highly recommend!
This is the best and meatiest Lobster Bisque I've ever tasted! Worth the drive from anywhere. We love it!
Great fish cooked perfect
This is always my favorite menu item! The fish is very fresh and the batter light and crispy! Love it!
