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!

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!
