Outstanding restaurant! Excellent selection of items. Seriously great food!  Their chicken parm is phenomenal as is their lemon swordfish. Everything is prepared perfectly and you will not leave hungry. You may however find yourself going into a food coma and need a nap. :)
Their menu is a bit on the pricey side but most top rated

Lanies is the ideal neighborhood restaurant. They have a great menu with a wonderful variety of quality food. The service makes you feel like family and the food is always cooked to perfection.

Great food!!... they need some patio heaters though for this time of year. Not their fault we have to eat outdoors to feel safe.

Service was very friendly, quick. The waitstaff was very knowledgable. The food was great, had swordfish on salad, lemon dressing went perfectly with it. Dined outdoors, very nice and quiet environment. I keep coming back, Lanie's is GREAT!

Great food, packing, and service. Chicken parm is so tasty and tender. The carrot cake was spectacular. It was soft, flavorful and the frosting is the perfect balance between buttery and sugar. Love it here.

Great food and service! We didn't love that everything was in to-go containers but everyone is handling COVID differently. It was also a bit cold to be offering outside seating only but the food was still great.

I love Lanie’s. Their Express Lunch is both delicious (soups are so good) and a great price for lunch. Their staff are extremely efficient and friendly to boot! Also wonderful for dinner. I was absolutely blown away by how delicious the Shrimp and Scallops ala Vodka was. Can’t wait to go back!

Our first time getting takeout from Lanie's. I can't believe how much food we got! There was so much spinach artichoke dip, I think there are 4 appetizers worth. And it was delicious. One of the best I've had in a long time. Creamy, garlicky. My side salad was fresh and looked appetizing. My 4yr old devoured her grilled cheese. The s ... read more

We've ordered from here twice now in lock down. Food is good with good sized servings. The cranberry chicken salad sandwich is good but could be bigger for the price. In and out for pick up pretty easily.

ALWAYS excellent food. Been going there for over 12 years, at least 1 to 2 times a week. I think we’ve ordered everything on the menu at least once. What is the definition of perfect? This place. If you’re lucky to get Ryan, he makes the best margaritas between here in Mexico.
