Great place for breakfast or lunch. Homemade pies. Great to eat at a local establishment that has been here for years.

Let's be realistic here. The food is a very reasonably priced, but most of it is typical Sysco product. You get what you pay for, and if you don't go in with over-the-top expectations, you'll like this place just fine. I had a thin crabcake sandwich which was obviously not made on the spot, my wife got the hot roast... More

While you won't find food prepared by 5 star chefs or service equal to a highly rated restaurant you will find really great home cooking. This is comfort food, the food your mother or grandmother fixed. You can eat here every day and enjoy yourself. Few restaurants can have that reputation. The food is fresh, prepared in the best traditions... More

I had the oyster stew which was alright. I expected it to be thick with veggies and oysters. There were 6 oysters swimming in a slightly creamy broth. The broth had pretty good flavor. Would have been better off ordering grilled cheese or burger.

We had scallops and haddock. Super food, wonderful people. Didn't know what to expect, but were hoping to have some seafood and/or fish. They met all our expectations at a reasonable price for dinner.

If you want a good meal at a great value this is the place to go. There are always good specials and if you have room the pies are amazing!

Have been going here almost every month for the last 16 years- and have never had a bad meal! My husband is retired chef and very particular! This restaurant serves great homemade dishes- always fresh. Our favorites are the flounder sandwich special and the sea trout dinner- must have homemade slaw and tartar sauce! Save room for the totally awesome... More

We docked at a local marina, and we wandered into town on a lark. We decided to try Lee's because they made their own pies. Come to find out, they make practically everything they serve. The stuffed shrimp did not resemble any we have ever seen, but they were scrumptious. The potato salad was definitely home made, and it was... More
