Lefty’s Lobster and Chowder House
Fantastic food! Seating is just a bit too close together, and it's really loud. Not a place for a "quiet" romantic meal, but the food is worth the noise level for most instances.
Always great food. Consistency is the key here. Snapper can't be beat nor can any of the seafood specials. Brent provides excellent service every time.
Our son, (who’s always a very calm, easy going person) took us there to celebrated our 30th Anniversary.
The food was great!
But the server was amazingly short, abrupt, condescending and argumentative, mainly towards my wife. The server, basically chose to behaved that manner most part of the service until our son, went and asked the owner to replace our server.. apparently there weren’t any available so she served us, our entire time there. Our bread was cold, no butter, even after we asked for fresh warm ones, she brought out the same. After the manager/owner talked to her, Passive aggressive with touches of comments like “ok sweetheart, anything else” without any smile.. She wanted to educate my wife about the Champagne even after our son told her that won’t be necessary as we are pretty savvy with the choice. But she insisted and was pretty loud about it.
Two dessert cakes were dry and she did not offer to change it out for fresh ones. Made a face instead when informed.
We’ve been there before and never had an experience like that.. in the end we chose not to let her spoil our Anniversary evening. I think most of all, our son felt really bad for the way the service was because he chose the Restaurant.
It was my wife who, finally tried to cheer the server by complimenting her jewelry that got her to behave a little more pleasant. The owner/manager did not even bother to come by our table to apologize for his server’s services. And we still tipped her, her 20% because my wife insisted.
Incredible food at an amazing price. Definately our favorite new seafood restaurant!
Overall it was a great meal and good service -
would always recommend Lefty's Can't wait to go again.
Best seafood for the money in Dallas! Sea Bass and Haddock are tops. The Lobster Bisque is to die for...
Alejandro (Alex) is the best server ever, and a gentleman.
Great as always!
I brought seven people for my son’s 27th birthday. Everyone ordered something different and everyone loved their meal. My lobster was super sweet and wonderful the stuffed snapper my son got was out of this world. No one else offered to share I’m guessing because they all loved theirs so much. The shrimp tempura appetizer was the best any of us had ever had and two of us are Floridians so that’s really saying a lot! The servers were attentive yet not intrusive and I was pleasantly surprised the owner greeted us in person when we walked in the door. We will definitely be back! By the way the vibe is a perfect blend of warm and casual with a touch of elegance. I would feel comfortable there in jeans or a dress.
We love Lefty's! We've been dining here for years and the food is always wonderful. The kitchen accommodates my dietary restrictions with a smile and the staff is usually spot on. Food is always great. Lefty's pasta is the bomb! We just went again on Saturday and I'm ready to go back!
Eduardo was awesome. Just like the food and experience.
Good service and great food. Went at a slower time so the noise wasn’t bad. A bit expensive but would go again.
It was wonderful date nite with my hubby
Love our waitperson! Been there over a dozen years.
Perfect martini!! Thank you to bartender.
Was my husbands 55th bday. Always a great meal, this time however the AC didn’t seem to be working great. It was very warm inside
Fantastic food and friendly service - one of my all time favorites
Taken to table promptly. Greeted warmly. Service and friendliness excellent. Value for money stunning.
We were there the weekend before and I left a great review for them. We went there again this weekend because the first time it was so good!
Always excellent meal. Love the food and service. We are from the east coast and reminds us of a place on Cape Cod.
Perfect meal, cooked scallops cooked impeccably. Frankly, one of the best meals I've had out in recent memory. Don't forget about the desserts. Key Lime pie is fantastic
The food never disappoints! The only thing I would do differently is ask for dressing for the salad on the side. The house salad was too wet. Otherwise, so tasty!
Our favorite seafood restaurant in the Metroplex! Great food and service is never a problem at Lefty's.
We will definitely be back! Thanks to Open Table we were able to find this gem in Addison. We made a reservation and we were so glad we did! They were very busy!
the service was outstanding,we didn't feel rushed at all and the food was delicious. The menu is so different from other seafood places that offer the same old thing. The asiago-crusted shrimp on linguini was just delicious as was the pan-fried lobster. Not your typical fare at most places.
We will definitely be back! Thanks for a great time!
Er and sweetAlways great lobster. Good service. Great value. Waiters are always friendly and helpful. Lobsters are always tender and sweet.
Birthday party for 6. Very pleasant experience.
Been before and was as expected. When full suspect will be noisy loud.
I had two terrible waiters. My friend had her birthday today. I personally told the waiters. Nobody seemed they cared.
Never come back for this place.
Good food, service was pretty good .it is a good value.
The food was excellent, entree portions were generous, next visit we may be sharing. I had the crab & avocado appetizer and it was exactly what I was craving. Our waiter was super, attentive but not annoying. We’ll be back, soon!
The place is small but LOUD. The food is great and the service is good. I wish appetizers were more conducive for sharing. We ordered a crab cake for the table. It was awkward for three people to portion out but tasty.
Our go to for family celebrations and out of town guests. Lefty's never disappoints...the quality of food is delicious, consistantly. I can't speak to the regular menu, other than the Crab legs, because we are always challenged with which amazing special to order. The seafood is always fresh. Service is great, if not a Friday or Saturday, and even then it is better than most. Drinks are generous and wine reasonably priced compared to peer restaurants. One of our go to favorites in the Dallas area.
Never miss a beat. Food is always consistent and wonderful. Staff attentive even in the crowd
Just phenomenal food at a great price! Service was off the charts!
Very good, very busy! Can't wait to go back. Make reservations though or you'll be waiting.
Love Lefty's. Always a great experience. Service exceptional and food outstanding. 3 good size one claw lobsters for $55 is a bargain. Our waiter kept the our discard bowls empty, kept the beer coming, and brought more drawn butter when needed. We will be back. Make a reservation because you never know if they will have a table. They seem to always be busy!
Always excellent fresh seafood - and desserts that are to die for! of course the lobster is top notch. One of our favorites... always leave satisfied, and always looking forward to our next visit.
The food was amazing, top tier even, but the service left something to be desired. Aside from service woes, the portion to price ratio is abysmal. Example being the pan-fried lobster and shrimp. It tastes wonderful, the sauce is excellent, was cooked to perfection, but you get 2 pieces of shrimp and 2 pieces of lobster (all 4 around the same size 2.5 inch circle) for around 40 dollars.
I would only recommend this to someone who wants to try out the wonderful food, and doesn't care about the price. It's a try 1 time and never go back restaurant.
Fish was fishing smelling and tasting.
Shrimp was greasy.
Baked potatoes were bad.
After the floor cleaning next to us after food was delivered everything taste dirty.
Will not return
My lobster was a little overcooked.
Excellent service. Food was great.
Angel is always super
Always delicious. Tried shrimp and lobster in orange champagne sauce and flounder special with lump crab. Both were exceptional. Service was excellent. Our favorite for fresh perfectly prepared seafood.
