Love Lefty's! I've been coming here for years to celebrate a friend's birthday. She always chooses Lefty's because she loves their lobster dinner. All dishes I've had are exceptional. The only suggestion I would make is adding more appetizers that can be shared. There are always three of us and the options available are not conducive to sharing. Service is good despite the fact the restaurant is always busy where we're there.

To celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary, we decided to have our dinner at Lefty's. We were very pleased with our decision since the food was very good and the service was excellent. We got great dining recommendations and at the end of the meal the waiter gave us a complimentary dessert for our anniversary. I can highly recommend this restaurant.

This is the third time we’ve eaten at Lefty’s and we love ii. The first time we ate there we both had the fish, but lately I’ve been getting the twin whole lobsters. They are so deiecious and you can’t get lobsters that good for that price anywhere else. I also love the clam chowder and creme Brule’
We will definitely be back soon!

The seafood was delicious but the specials were too pricey! The service was attentive and rushed. The booth we had was cramped but manageable, and the noise level made it difficult to have a conversation. The staff was nice.

The food was great! Our reservation was for 6:30 on a Friday night and we drove about 60 miles and arrived about 45 minutes early, the host was great and seated us early. Leftys was highly recommended by our friend so we went for my husbands birthday. We will be back. The Oysters, Lobster and stuffed Red Snapper were delicious. Also the Lobster Bisque was delicious. I guess that covers it so I'm thinking anything else on the menu would be delicious as well. Great atmosphere!

We went to Lefty's for lobster. It is Austrailan Rock Lobster. It is not anywhere as sweet or tender as maine lobster. Plus, it was a market price $70 per tail. There was a lot of meat- just didn't taste very good. On a previous visit we ordered whole Maine lobster and it was good, but not much meat. We won't be back!

Lefty's never disappoints. An authentic New England chowder house in Addison, TX! Perfect lobster bisque, creative seafood preparations (the Fra Diavolo is terrific). The noise level still permits table conversation. Worth a trip to Addison.

We really enjoyed our experience at Lefty's. Hubby and I started off with the oysters on the half shell and the slit the Rock Lobster tail. Service was very helpful, but at no time did wee feel we couldn't take our time and enjoy ourselves. I think we will be retuning in the future.

Great food and service. The bisque and chowder were fantastic, and the lobster great. Can't wait to come back. Only negative was the veggie was corn, so I had corn and a baked potato instead of something green. Otherwise it was a great place

Our group of 4 had blue crab claws for appetizer, Rib Eye, Pan Seared Lobster, Stuffed Snapper, and I chose the scallops w/asparagus from the daily menu. I was lucky and "taste tested" a bite from each party. Food was DELISH. Lovely place. Will visit again.

Go for the food. Service and atmosphere are fine, and prices are fair. But the reason we love Lefty's is the food--fresh and skillfully prepared. This time my wife and I started with soup. Both the lobster bisque and the clam chowder were outstanding. We had the same entree--lobster stuffed with shrimp and cracker crumbs in a wine-butter sauce. It was exceptional, a great way to enjoy lobster without having to crack shells and make a mess! We will return.

Leftys, they have been in Addison 20 years and theirs a reason, their seafood menu is very tasty. Try their lobster the first tine you go, but their seafood and pasta menu is also worth the try. They have nice lunch menu but dinner is their specialty. I highly recommend just for the taste of their food. I have yet to find something on their menu I did not like.
