Between 5 and 7 this place gets packed on a Saturday night. Daily specials, great menu, delicious pies and good wait staff. Enjoyed a fresh rockfish dinner here with two sides and a delicious pie!

The desserts are great, but dinners are like nursing home or hospital food. This probably works out, for most of their customers are elderly. It'll get you by in a pinch, though, and the staff are friendly.

Been around since 1939. Read good reviews and figured we needed to go. Good food – just like mom used to make. Friendly atmosphere, lots of locals, which is always a good sign. If you are passing through, this is a great stop.

Everyone goes to lunch at Lee's. We stumbled on it because there was an available parking spot just in front although we were looking for another restaurant. We were not disappointed. Friendly staff and good dinner food. 3 of us had the spaghetti bolognese.
