This is a nice spot on Long Wharf, located right on New Haven Harbor. Great lunch deal....a choice of two out of four fried entrees (shrimp, clam strips, etc.) accompanied by potato/rice and cole slaw. Portions are very ample, especially for lunch. This is probably...More

Outstanding seafood entrees and the best lobster roll in miles, all at reasonable prices. Have tried lobster rolls elsewhere and always return to Lenny & Joe's, where the staff is friendly and efficient.

Seafood was decent. I've had much better. A bit over priced for the quality. Steam vegetable sides were lack luster and flavorless. On the water which is nice but still a new haven view. Fine service.

We liked the food here; the lobster was awasome and the fish was too tasty... The staff are very fast and very friendly..., We will sure try it again soon....
