At Lennie's, you'll likely find IU professors enjoying pints after class, groups catching a bite after an IU Auditorium performance, or couples enjoying a first date. Lennie's friendly, cozy environment, and great food attract a diverse crowd. Lennie's supports local farmers and believes in sustainably sourced ingredients. We're also proud to serve Bloomington Brewing Company's unfiltered, artisan ales, fresh from the source.
Good tasting food. Girlfriend loved the pasta, I thought the pizza was a bit dry, but yummy toppings.
Great beer and great dessert.
I should’ve asked to have the music turned up, we were there around 4:30pm and it was almost too quiet.
Will definitely go back.
We sat outside, in perfect weather, excellent service and fantastic food!
Always excellent food...worth the hours drive to get there.
It was great - as always! Thank you for helping make Easter special for my parents - who don't get out for their weekly Lennie's trip anymore:).
One of the best restaurants in Bloomington. Highly recommend for all occasions.
Lennie’s has always been tasty. The restaurant could use some updates. More decor?
Very good food. Solid service. Friendly staff
Poor service and pizza was overloaded with Gorgonzola. However, the salad was good.
Excellent pizza and great atmosphere. The price/value was good.
Kind and excellent service. Good food. The wood fired vegetable plate was a generous portion, meant to be shared, and absolutely delicious. Has that college town vibe that’s fun. Seating was well spaced out for covid protocols.
The pizza we had was great! There was a lot of space between each table as well, which was helpful for covid.
Lennie's is one of our new favorite lunch spots. I'm all about the tofu sandwich, and hubby loves their pizzas and stroms. They have a nice Sunday brunch and local beer as well. Always great service too!
Lennie's is one of the best things about Bloomington!
Cara the manager and our waitress was amazing! She was extremely friendly, personable, and grateful that we chose Lennie’s. We will definitely be back!
This was our first time out to eat indoors since the COVID pandemic started. Our group felt completely safe. Lennies was following the CDC guidelines. They took our temps before being seated. The tables were safely placed. Everyone had a mask on. As usual the service and food at Lennies is always excellent.
Our dinner at Lennies was great. Food was an excellent value and as always delicious!
Introduced friends from out of town to Lennie's. Everyone was able to find something they liked. Wonderful as usual.
It was so cold at our table that we had to keep our coats on at dinner. The food was delicious. But, we were disappointed that they only had soda in cans and not fountain. Also, appeared to only have one server for the entire dining room. We didn’t get the attention we needed.
We hadn't been to Lennie's in years, and I'm so glad that we decided to give it a try! The food was wonderful. It was a little slow...we were there for about an hour before we actually had any food, but my 9-year-old said that it was worth the wait!
Food was good, reduced menu due to Covid. I was ok with wine list but wife wanted Moscato. Service was fine and overall experience was good.
Went there 2/6/2021 to celebrate a friend's birthday; had a great meal with excellent beer selection; our server was excellent and on top of every need we had. Even though the entree selection is small the food was excellent and I cannot wait to go back again. This will become one of my "go to " pleaces in Bloomington.
The pizza was outstanding and the beer was terrific
Great food. Great service. Outstanding value. Please support our local restaurants during COVID-19.
Excellent restaurant week dinner - our server was knowledgeable and attentive with great recommendations.
Fantastic, caring crew who are genuinely glad that you are there.
We love Lennie’s food, beer, wine and atmosphere. You always know it will be excellent.
It's hard to leave hungry.
Loved sitting outside on Kirkwood with the Sample Gates in the background! Our server was amazing, very attentive.
The food was good. But we asked for ice water with lemon and the glasses came with like 2 ice cubes in each glass which melted quickly. Our service was good otherwise. Wood definitely eat there again.
We just had a create your own pizza. But for $25 for a small pizza it was just ok. Had better. We hadn't been to new place, Liked outdoor seating. And the fact that Kirkwood is blocked off.
We had several very nice and helpful servers. Great atmosphere sitting outside and the food was really tasty! Top notch overall.
Great ambiance, food and service! Thank you for a fun evening!
I had the best salad with ahi tuna - so delicious! I love eating outside on their patio. Lennies is one of our favorites and the owner has a heart for serving the community.
Long time Lennie’s fan, first time in their new downtown location. Food was ok. Ambiance was ok. Service was ok. So actually, this is a step down from the old Lennie’s. Will try again soon and hope for a return to better!
First time here. The wings were awesome and so was my salad. Pass on the focaccia bread. Most importantly our service was beyond excellent. So friendly and efficient.
New name? Old and dated decor. Bloomington Beer Co should get away fast! Food way overpriced for what felt like a senior citizen diner except for the pizzas. Our pizzas were decent but again wat overpriced for value. Will never return nor will my college age daughters and friends.
It was decent. First ordered a Prosecco which was actually a Brut. Spinach artichoke torte was good but served cold which we didn’t expect. I ordered Salmon which was decent. Friend ordered Tilapia and other ordered a pasta special. All were fine but not a lot of flavor. Steamed vegetables were very bland. Cheesecake was good for desert. Brownie cherry cordial ice cream special was good but would have been soooo much better if brownie had been served warm. Ambiance was great. Server not very attentive but pleasant.
We have been fans of Lennie's for many years. This was our first visit to the new location and it didn't disappointment. Loved the new space and food was as good as ever.
Brunch on Sunday. Large group. Love this place!!! Finally a restaurant that doesn’t shoehorn you into a table!!! Quiet, relaxing meal. Lots of families there. Will definitely go here again!!!!!food was fantastic.
Have always loved Lennies. They need to spruce up the new location's decor. its very dry, mundane. Need to decorate maybe with some memorabilia. Something... it looks like an old lady decorated it.
