Lenny's fried scallops are a favorite but in an attempt to be healthy we opted for the broiled scallops instead and were not disappointed. Sweet and tender and so full a flavor. Served in a light wine and butter broth with just a dusting of crumbs. Delicious.

It was a Friday during Lent, so we went in for lunch. Most items on the Lunch Menu were fried, so I chose baked stuffed clams, didn't want fried. My husband had the Haddock and enjoyed it. My clams did not have any clams, it was ALL stuffing!! The clams may have been blended in, but I felt like I... More

My kids ordered the New England clam chowder and popcorn shrimp as appetizers.The wife and kids liked the popcorn shrimp but I thought it had little flavor... More

Whenever I'm craving a lobster roll or fresh seafood, Lenny's is the place to go. My favorite is the hot buttered lobster roll but I also enjoy the cold lobster salad which is filled with lots of lobster. The trench fries are really good as is their clam chowder. No matter what season, Lenny's seafood is fresh and delicious.

Great service, super food and a welcoming staff at all times. The seafood mac and cheese is out of this world. Cold or hot, the lobster roll is superb.

We went to Lennys with my parents. It was their birthdays and we wanted to take them some place nice. We were originally seated in front of the fireplace but asked to be relocated because the floor was so wonky we were sliding out of our seats. The staff was so friendly! They dont have a gluten free menu but... More

Practically grew up here. The food is excellent and fresh, and the atmosphere is beautiful (especially the outdoor patio). Even during the winter, the fire place and wood panels are very quaint. Price wise, its pretty good/standard for seafood. The staff is okay depending on the day. Unlike the older servers, the young ones tend to stand around and do... More

Description
Lenny's sources the best seafood New England has to offer - from house made chowders to fresh lobsters to succulent steamers to clams and oysters on the half-shell. The fried seafood is gently breaded and cooked to order. For the land lubbers, their mouthwatering steaks and famous ribs have been a favorite for over 40 years. Lenny's Indian Head Inn has been recognized by the International Boating Magazine, The New York Times, USA Today and received Zagat's "Award of Distinction." We are open year-round.
