Still can't beat Lee's for economical, home-style eating. There's nothing upscale about the place, but the reasonably priced and tasty entrees and desserts have drawn customers for decades.

I've been eating here for 30 years and never been disappointed. The crab cakes are my favorite topped with their home made Tatar sauce along with homemade stewed tomatoes!!! Every one of the homemade pies are amazing!

Reasonably priced food with good flavor and served with a smile makes this place a sure bet for a good meal. Nothing special about the decor but the food is well worth the price and the staff is welcoming.
