Fresh Fried Whole Clams

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!

Fish Tale Dinner Platter

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!

Fish Tale Dinner Platter

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.

Hot Lobster Roll

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!

Fresh Fried Clam Strips

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?).

Lenny & Joe's Two Way Fried Combination

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.

Fried Shrimp

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.

Fried Wild Caught Calamari

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!

Fresh Fried Clam Strips

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!

Fried Shrimp

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.

Hot Lobster Roll

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.
