Superb. Loved the Mussels Marinara, as always. Service was friendly and attentive.

Food was great as usual. The service, however, was disappointing. Our server forgot to bring complimentary bread, never checked to see if our food was good, and did not thank us for coming. Her attitude was on the cold side.

The best lobster I have EVER had! I ordered the one pound lobster tail and it was incredible. The bartender was knowledgable and friendly and catered to my every need. The owner came by at the end of my meal and we had a very enjoyable conversation. I highly recommend planning a visit to Lefty's!

This cosey restaurant produces excellent seafood, which is served by friendly waiting staff. The clam chowder was very good. The entrees are of very good size and will not let you leave feeling hungry. Some items are on the pricier side but what we had was well worth the money.

Lefty's is always outstanding. Some of the best seafood and lobster in town at reasonable prices in a fun, casual atmosphere. Great for families or for a date. We always enjoy walking through that old porch screen door!!

Took my husband, who loves seafood, for his birthday dinner... he loved the East Coast combo with lobster and king crab legs! We shared garlicky blue crab fingers as an appetizer and Creme Brulee for dessert. My scallops were delicious and everything was prepared perfectly! The service was outstanding and the ambiance was lovely. It wasn’t too noisy on a Monday night. Another table was also celebrating a birthday and shared birthday cake with everyone. Very friendly group that evening... we loved it!

Great food and service. Noise level a little much but tolerable. Probably much better during the week. We will definitely be back. We are so happy to find the Daddy Jacks cuisine and atmosphere that we enjoyed in Dallas until they closed forever. We will defininately be back!

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.
