My crab cakes were so dry because they were almost burned on the bottom. As I thought about it later, the meat I ordered was cooked to within an inch of its life. Unfortunately, I can't remember what the meat was called. The dish was on the Oktoberfest menu, a cut of breaded pork fried within an inch of its life and served on a bed of dry, crunchy noodles. The name of the dish started with "J."
I love your new place. The service both of my visits was superb. Lennie's has always been a favorite of mine. I was with wonderful company both times. I hope the kitchen pays closer attention as my food is cooking the next time I am there. Thankfully the chocolate mousse is still to die for!!
We enjoyed the pasta dishes and portobello sandwich. Nice beer selection and the focaccia with roasted garlic was delicious!
Not as good since you moved. On Saturday they didn’t have fries ran out the day before. Beer was very warm went we got it. Like I said not as good since the move. We have been there several times.
Very glad that Lennie's moved from 10th St to Kirkwood. Excellent location now and love the patio. I have lunched three times already since they moved and recommend it highly. Also happy that they have subscribed to Open Table: a real service to be able to make online reservations.
Hi--Thanks for your review! So glad to hear you like our new location. =)
Visiting our son at IU
Food portions are huge, food is delicious
Thanks, Audra! So glad you enjoyed your visit!
uncrowded Saturday IU game day brunch, enjoyed server-recommended selection(s) popular with patrons, comfortable seating in environment fairly conducive to pleasant conversation, ambiance marked by an overall sense of casual ease in dining
Thanks for taking the time to review Lennie's! Glad to hear you enjoyed your visit.
Went to Lennie’s for lunch and was impressed! We got seated promptly and had a delicious lunch of the beet salad and tilapia sandwich. The red pepper vinaigrette is delicious and my friend raved about his tilapia!
Thanks so much for your review! So glad you had a great experience. =)
Got there a little early and table was ready for us! Set with menus and all. Waitress had waters at our table right away and was with us immediately. Great service great food, I highly recommend the Market BLT when available in the summer months!
That BLT though--so good! Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed your experience. Hope to see you again!
great service in setting up a party of 24. excellent time had by all for a large party. very good food and service!
Thanks, John! Glad to hear you had a great experience!
Waitstaff and hostesses were extremely helpful and nice.
Thanks for your review! So glad you enjoyed the service--we have a great staff!
The service was terrible and the food was mediocre. We had two or three different servers and had to wait a long time just to get water. My salad was good, but the French Dip was tough. Would not recommend this restaurant.
I have gone to Lennie's since it opened on Tenth Street many years ago, and will continue going in its new location on Kirkwood, even though parking is more difficult and it is no longer walking distance from my office. The new location has more room plus outside tables Food and beer are still great. The negative is that it is very noisy inside.
Thanks for your review! We added a bunch of sound dampening panels to the space before we moved, but we realize we still need more. We're currently exploring ways to improve the sound. I appreciate your continued support. =)
great place, open late. Nice wine list with a few really good values. Check it out, you will not be dissapointed
Thanks, Jeffrey--glad to hear you had a great visit! Hope to see you again soon. =)
My fiance and I went Saturday night after the IU vs Eastern Illinois football game. We made a reservation for 6:45pm. The app was super easy to use! We got there at 6:40ish and were seated right away even though there was a big group ahead of us!
Overall it was a great experience. Our server was Nick and he was amazing! So nice and gave good recommendations. We both had the bacon turkey sandwich (mine on the wrap his on the bread) and it was the best food we've had in a long time. We also had a flight to try some of BBC's great beer options (Ruby Bloom is the fav). Overall it was a great restaurant experience that's honestly hard to find these days.
Thanks for the kind words! So glad you had a great experience! =)
We had a marvelous time at Lennie's with a group of 8. The server was helpful and attentive and the food spectacular. Very nicely done and we had a lovely evening!
Thanks so much for your review! Really glad to hear you had a great experience! =)
Lennie’s new location is top notch. If you want the best food and drink experience in Bloomington don’t miss this place. Sit on the patio overlooking the iconic Indiana University Sample Gates while sipping a Bloomington Brewing Company Quarrymen Pale Ale for the quintessential Hoosier experience. Try the Turkey Tortilla Salad, a national award winner, or the wood fired pizza fresh from the oven, OH don’t miss the Bacon Turkey Melt.
Thanks for the kind words and support! Hope to see you again soon. =)
