Open on Sunday

We were glad to find family friendly restaurant that is open on Sunday; which is not the case on many of the Parksville restaurants. It had kids menu; friendly staff, efficient service and very nice décor.

We arrived in Parksville on Holiday and as our room wasn't ready we decided to have an early dinner. We used Trip Adviser and picked Lefty's what an inspired choice. We got there when the lunch menu was still on,now my Wife when reading about the place had decided she wanted something off as it turned out the evening menu.... More

Very helpful staff but when the rush came they were over whelmed Good choice on the menu. Grapefruit juice was from concentrate but coffee tasted grand. The French toast was unusual in that it appeared to have egg on top rather than being soaked in egg. Cold on the bottom but good topping of bananas and coconut.

Ouch! We are sensitive about our french toast as it is one of our most celebrated signature dishes. (see other positive reviews in both locations). That being said, we appear to have missed a detail or two in this case for which I offer our apologies. A missed opportunity in our case. Nonetheless, thank you for taking the time to... More

During each of our three meal visits, the food, service and staff were wonderful and consistent, and the items we ordered were delicious. Made In-house desserts on the dinner menu were excellent, and it was difficult to make... More

Had a great lunch at Lefty's with clients. The food was very good but the service was even better. I met clients there that mistakenly went to the restaurant in Qualicum Beach instead. The staff were very accommodating and even called the other location to find out if they were there. They kept my coffee topped up and offered a... More

Friendly staff, we were immediately asked if we wanted to eat inside or out. Outside chairs suck, but that doesn't change my opinion of the place. Good service, really good food.

Thanks for your review. Our patio will be undergoing a renovation this fall and, yes, new chairs are in the plan. Glad you enthusiastically enjoyed your breakfast. More
