Lefty’s Lobster and Chowder House Ratings and Reviews
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.
Absolutely a great experience. Loved the checkered tablecloths and welcoming feel to the restaurant. Food was fabulous. Great lobster bisque and Maryland crab cake. Homemade bread was delicious. My husband loved the lobster. Our waiter was so attentive. The creme brûlée was divine. The only negative was the noise level. It was bit loud but would not keep me from dining there again. Plans to eat there again next year for OU-TX weekend!
We have been to Lefty's many times, but this one was really great! Paco was our server, and he was always there to help, but not obtrusive. He made sure we had what we wanted, but did not over-sell. The lobster is the freshest we have had here in the Dallas area. The New England atmosphere is a treat.
If you're from New England, this is THE PLACE you want to get authentic Lobster dinners in North Texas. Other than the missing waterfront, you will feel like you got dropped right into a Northeast Lobster Shack Restaurant. Always the same great wait staff, bartender, and food too. Casual, relaxed atmosphere and good prices. Check out their website for the full menu which includes more than just lobster.
Lefty's has a comfortable informal atmosphere. The service is friendly and excellent. The food is quite good with its specialty being lobster and seafood in general, but also have good non seafood dishes. Arriving at 6:30 on a Monday, the place was very quiet, but by the time we left at 8:30, the place was fairly full with an active bar crowd of locals and regulars.
So good food, comfortable atmosphere without airs, good local support, and great service warrants the high recommendation.
We were really looking forward to eating here again as the last experience was not good but wanted to give it a second chance. The host was not friendly, the server acted overwhelmed and in a hurry and yet was not even busy. He did not get our order correct and when we pointed this out he blamed the kitchen and made no attempt to even try to correct it. He did not come back to the table to check on us and we had to ask for water refills. Never go back or refer to anyone.!!!
