Ordered 2 calzones with ham. If there was 1 slice of ham in the 2 calzones, it was a lot. Big rip off.

My husband and I came here in hopes of some good seafood. They did not disappoint! I had the salmon in capers and tomatoes over Yukon mashed potatoes. My husband had flounder franchise over linguini The fish was extremely fresh and cookies perfectly. The seasoning...was wonderful. It also came with choice of soup or salad and we both opted for the soup which was delicious. (Chicken pasta and pasta fagioli) The bread was tasty and the place is BYOB if interested. Our server Paige and all the young ladies were attentive and friendly. We will be back as it was our best meal in Lavallette yet.More

Stopped in Lennys Lavallette New Jersey Pizzeria and Restaurant which is renowned. It’s not a tourist trap and is well respected year-round by locals. Outdoor seating and a byzantine ordering process greeted the understandably sparse crowd given NJ’s indoor dining restrictions. A disinterested and unfocused...young man was taking orders and working the cash register. He had to be given instructions 2-3 times for a simple order. Promised grated cheese and red pepper flake were not included in my order which was delivered to my table by a delightful young waitress who really did a great job. I ordered a white slice and a margarita slice plain. They were unremarkable and small – – so small they could’ve been mistaken for school cafeteria slices. A ham calzone had no ricotta cheese at all and I provide the pictures below. I realize we are in a pandemic and things are fraying around the edges, But this was a very poor showing by a very well established and respected restaurant. Some of this was an obvious stab at cutting corners and that’s the real disappointment here.More

Lenny’s is always a good pick for eating in Lavallette. I’ve come here a number of times and it’s never disappointed. The pizza is excellent and I’d highly recommend an appetizer of garlic bread.

The best in town. Period. End of story. Rivals the best from the Tri-state. It's the real deal, fuggettaboutit! Phil is the man!

The restaurant does not take reservations. We waited over an hour to get in. You have to BYOB. Cold Antipasto was very small, the cheese was cut up into mini cubes, not enough for our table. Penne Vodka was enjoyable. House specialty was tasty, Chicken...Rosemarie. Very crowded and busy. I would not wait an hour again to go to this restaurantMore

We heard about Lennie’s and decided to try it last night. We were told that one specialty, not on the menu, were the garlic knot sliders! We ordered two pizzas, one plain and one mushroom. Both were typical Jersey pizza, very good. The surprise were...the sliders! We had meatball, chicken parm and eggplant! Excellent mix of flavors! Try it! You’ll like it!More

Excellent Italian food is what you will find here at Lenny’s. The place is always packed so go on an off night to get in sooner. Vanessa our waitress was super friendly and efficient. Our food was excellent especially the baked ziti. It tasted homemade...and fresh! We were able to get seat outside which made for perfect summer evening! This restaurant is worth the wait and wait you will!!More
