We always stop for either a delicious lunch or treats like homemade muffins and pie. Coffee is outstanding too. There is a little bookstore attached so we can shop while waiting for our meal.

Lefty's provides a reasonably diversified menu at moderate pricing. The food is good and generally appropriately presented. The location is good with ample parking but the seating area is relatively small so timing for dining could be critical.

Thanks for your positive review. We started small and you are correct that, at times, our popularity overwhelms our ability to deliver. For the most part we have been able to step up and continue to strive to fulfill our commitments to fresh food and hospitality. More

The great tasting food and friendly service are torn to shreds when it takes more than 40 minutes to get the food whether they are busy or not

I apologize for your experience. I can assure you that our regular bill times ( and we are sensitive to this issue) do not exceed 20 minutes on average. If we were busy we were remiss in not informing you of the timing and if we were not we failed to live up to our own expectations. I have brought... More

We enjoyed our dinner here. Food was excellent and reasonably priced with many choices. We both had the fresh halibut which came with rice and Caesar salad. Good selection of wines and a nice local draft beer in addition to bottle choices and various cocktails. Very friendly waitress however the restaurant was quite busy (always a good sign) and the...

Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Wife had an excellent curry soup and a pretty good curry wrap. My BLT+ on cranberry bread was great. My IPA on tap was quite good too.

-nicely-charred tasty burger with real cheese, thick bacon, sauteed mushrooms and fresh veg -menu states "brioche bun" - i doubt it -oven-baked wedge potatoes were limp and tasted as if they had been boiled first -glasses could have been cleaner

There were 6 of us in our party. We all enjoyed generous portions of food that was all cooked the way we liked it. Fish and seafood was delicious. The atmosphere was very pleasant and fairly quiet. A good time was had by all.

Lefty's is a local fav'. They make really good, fresh, thin-crust pizza's that have a little attitude. My personal favourite is the BBQ'ed chicken pizza! While my sweetie loves the Left Coast. Her preference is important here. She is severally celiac!!! But Lefty's does it right! She has enjoyed many pizza's from there over the years and NEVER a problem.... More

Decent restaurant in Parksville and Qualicum Beach. Excellent pizza and gluten free choices. Parking good in Parksville, Qualicum ok depends on the day. Menu is varied with lots of left coast emphasis and ingredients. Usually busiest at noon. We go there a couple of times a month.

What a wonderful local restaurant. The atmosphere is so warm and comfortable - could have spent the whole afternoon there. Fantastic homemade soups and unique menu items. We ate there twice and was very impressed. The staff is outstanding!
