A must visit with out of town guests
Best seafood in DFW! At not-so-crazy prices. I usually get lobster, but sometimes I get scallops—both terrific. You will pay more elsewhere for a less enjoyable meal.
Lefty's is our go to restaurant for seafood! We have never been disappointed there. This visit, we tried the pistachio encrusted trout. It was delicious! I asked for my side of broccoli to be double steamed because I don't like under cooked broccoli. It was cooked perfectly! My husband and I love Lefty's!
Food is consistently excellent.
Aqesome as usual...!!!
This restaurant is pretty consistent and when I go there I always feel that they want you to be there and they appreciate your business. In Dallas, I see a lot restaurants who have a great product but I don't see the authenticity.. I do here! Good people who really care.
We have dined here many times.
Service & food are consistently good!
One word EXTRAORDINARY!!!!
Great crab cakes. Fresh fish. Great service.
Excelent food,excellent service,drinks are alright good wines they need a cocktail menu but overall a great experience.i would definitely recommend it to my friends
Dinner was excellent. It was a bit loud, but the food was fantastic!
Had great lobster that was perfectly cooked. Casual atmosphere and very fun, great service!
Very disappointing! We took the family put for my daughter's birthday to get some tasty seafood. The waitress was attentive enough but experience left.much to be desired. Calamari was chewy and tough. Entrees took a while to come and it was a sparse crowd at 5:30 dinner hour. What was worse is everything was an upcharge! Request substituting alfredo sauce for the marinara - $4 upcharge! Alfredo linguine instead of potato- another $4 upcharge! Don't share your side dish or you'll get slapped with another upcharge! It's not like the food is cheap either. $26 for 2 shrimp and the equivalent amount of lobster (which was tasty but also chewy!). The worst of all was the waitress new it was my daughter's birthday. After our declining dessert, she brings out a single candle on an empty plate! An empty plate! I was so upset at that point - I'd rather she not bring out anything at all. How ridiculous is that?! You can't afford a bite of cake or,pie or ice cream.to.put the candle on? Perhaps Another $4 upcharge for that? What happened to the days of delighting customers so they come back. Not us, we won't be back. There's much better customer care and service out there and definitely better food as well!
I love Lefty’s food- the sweetest one claw shrimp. Would love it even more if noise level were not quite as loud so my friends and I could converse! But people watching and great food are a killer combo🌹🌹
We've gone to Lefty's for years and have never left disappointed. The bisque is fantastic, the scampi suberb, and whether you choose the broiled lobster tail or the baked stuffed lobster you can't go wrong.
I have frequented this restaurant numerous time and each time the food is fantastic. Highly recommend!
Lefty’s is a Dallas institution in dining. Truly an “UN” restaurant in an ocean full of
Had a great time! This place is happening and hopping!! Food was really good can’t wait to go back and try some other dishes!! Had the trout and it was awesome!
Date Night...great food. Lobster Bisque was fabulous. Filet mignon was tender & cooked to perfection. Whole lobster amazing! Our Waiter was top notch.
Will be celebrating my 60th birthday here next month!
Best seafood I’ve ever had in Dallas area. Will be back.
Lefty's is a wonderful restaurant with tasty food. The interior is charming and the lobsters are abundant. We went on a Sunday evening during the Valentine's Day weekend. Lefty's was busy but our server worked her tail off to make sure that we got our food in a timely manner. The food came out looking and tasting great. I highly recommend Lefty's Pasta with its savory sausage! I also recommend the Lobster Fra Diavolo as it contains a whole tail of lobster! We ordered the Alaskan King Crab legs but due to an issue with the kitchen, they didn't arrive. The owner was very kind and was gracious to give us the King crab legs to go and on the house. That was very nice and generous. We appreciated his kindness and it certainly means we will be returning to Lefty's again and again. If you are looking for a delightful and enchanting place to eat flavorful seafood in Dallas, I highly recommend Lefty's Lobster and Chowder House. Thank you Lefty's for a wonderful evening.
Great as always!
The food is AMAZING! Service is stellar as well!
Great place if you love east coast seafood and atmosphere.
Valentine's Day meal. My husband had the pan fried lobster and shrimp and I had the Sea Scallops Special. The food was delicilious and the service was great even on a busy night. Waited a few minutes even with reservation but not long. Great atmosphere is you don't mind it being a little loud since it's a small area. Great for casual dates and families. Don't expect quiet romantic atmosphere. Just great food great service!
Greatness from all perspectives. From the pre-dinner drink at the bar, to the friendliness of everyone who served us, to the food (we enjoy the lower key atmosphere), to the amazing food. A hidden gem. We will definitely put this on the regular rotation!
Always love this place. The environment, service and food were great!
Only suggestion - the noise - can be very difficult to carry on a conversation.
We will be back
As usual our visit to Lefty's was great. Food and service are great and always nearby parking. Do get reservations as because of the food, service and value its a pretty busy place.
We had a reservation for 4 for 5:30pm on Valentines evening. We arrived early, we were greeted and our table was ready for us. The service was prompt and attentive throughout the evening. The food was excellent, including lobster, stuffed lobster and clam chowder. There wasn't an table remaining empty for more than a few minutes for the nearly two hours we were here, yet there were no long waits and no sign of chaos. Clearly an experienced and well-managed restaurant in all aspects.
Great Place and Great food. Was our first time. Anxious to go back.
As always outstanding
Always love coming here! I come at least once a year to celebrate a friend’s birthday. It’s always her restaurant of choice. Food never disappoints. I had the Asiago Crusted Shrimp with pesto linguine & my two other friends both had the salmon and we all raved about our dishes. And to put the cherry on top, the drinks from the bar are phenomenal.
Lefty's has the Best King Crab, The meat slides right out and taste fantastic. Our Server was great also.
Lefty's just became our new favorite seafood spot. The setting is intimate, casual, and laid-back but the food is five-star. We had clam chowder, lobster bisque, sea bass, halibut, creme brulee, and cheesecake and all were phenomenal. We will definitely be returning!
We have been customers for over 20 years and it remains a favorite!
Best seafood restaurant in town. Impeccable service and fun atmosphere.
We have dined at Lefty’s on numerous occasions, each time the food and service has been great. They do an outstanding job.
The food at Lefty's is always excellent. The vibe, too, is energetic and welcoming. Service was a bit slow and forgetful on this visit due to some large parties, but as a rule the staff is on top of their guests' needs ~ and all staff and management make you feel like family.
Definitely worth the drive especially for their specials!
Lefty’s was a great experience. Took my wife for a date night! The atmosphere was great. The service was great, Brent was fantastic! Our food was cooked to perfection. Well worth it and definitely will be back!
Service was a little slow this time, but will always recommend Lefty's. We have been here half a dozen times or so, service is usually not this slow, but food is always amazing and the atmosphere allows for people watching but at the same time, intimate enough for conversation at your table.
