We usually enjoy Lee's, not this time! We were directed to sit at a booth next to the kitchen. All we did was listen to cups falling on the floor and dishes clanging the entire time. Horrible music on, a local channel (105.7) with screeching guitars, etc, which had NO place in a restaurant where it's suppose to be relaxing!... More

We love Lee's and make it a part of our annual trek to Rockport. The people are always so friendly and the food is always delicious!

It took me until now, a year later , to realize I didn't do a review of Lee's. The breakfasts that I had there were awesome! While I don't remember what I had, I do remember that everything was delicious and the wait staff was very friendly. The coffee, served in their own mugs, was very good. Thanks to my... More

I went there recently with friends and the line was out the door. Cash only but the food is great! I had the burrito and it was awesome.

I had a breakfast sandwich of poached egg covered in bernaise sauce and over luguisa on anadamo toast. The breakfast was very satisfying.

stopped for breakfast. quaint little place with beautiful views of harbor. Had never had a stuffed potato skin so good and with so much texture. When we go back for another whale watch on 7 Seas Whale Watch we will eat there again.

You have no idea how many different ways there are to make an omelette, eggs Benedict or pancakes until you step into Lee's for breakfast. Absolutely amazing place..everything tastes great...everything is just as you want it to be. They are a little slow on interior repairs...I was there in July and a car had jumped the curb and done some... More

Love this breakfast joint. No it's not fancy. It's down home breakfast cooking. You can get pancakes cooked a billion ways and several options for eggs Benedict. They have delicious Virgilios bread as well as their own homemade breads. Great coffee too!

Wonderful place for a homey breakfast. Huge menu, fast and friendly service, good coffee, very reasonable. If you want elegance and fine dining, this is NOT the place! Open daily from 5:30 am to 1:00 pm. I took my eleven years old granddaughter and she loved it!!
