Yep! I've never liked pizza since my last fave in Argentina but as soon as I had a bite of Leftys homemade thin crust bubbly dough, topped with their "Mancino" and "Hot Stuff", my honey and I kept coming back for more almost every weekend now. The ladies that served us were very friendly despite how busy it gets sometimes.... More

Having happily lived for a few years in Comox, I regularly stopped in Qualicum Beach enroute or simply as a destination to eat the most delicious pancakes you can find! This is a busy place during breakfast hours on any given weekend, but the staff work their butts off and the owner is often in the store greeting and bussing... More

We were there for my husband's birthday on Sept 11 2014 and I had their Blueberry salmon with white rice and veggies and my husband had peach cod with quinoa and veggies. Excellent quality, could be a little bit more rice on the plate for the money we paid, but overall the taste and quality and the service was great.... More

The food is tasty and fresh. The staff is friendly. This restaurant is right in the town of Qualicum and my daughter and I come here often for breakfast or lunch. And it is always good.

This is a lovely local restaurant (another in Parksville). All desserts for the two locations are made on this site. I've been to each location several times; service is quick and courteous; good selection of menu items, and great desserts.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with dessert for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Our baker, Carol is outstanding in her made-from-scratch desserts! We are ecstatic you have enjoyed them! Thank you! Deanna Donaghy General Manager, Lefty's More

Good food. Fresh and tasty. Creative menu and chef. Worth the stop. Good seafood dishes. Try the blueberry salmon.

The place was pretty busy when we went for our mid-week dinner. The waitress was friendly and the service was prompt. What wasn't good, however, was the food. My wife had the fish and chips and I had the burger and chips. From memory they pride themselves on their fried potatoes, but really they were terrible. I can't remember the... More

I am sorry you were disappointed with your food and hope you expressed your disappointment to your server as our policy would have been to replace it or not charge you for it. As to the potatoes, I apologize for the quality of that product which is made daily and prepared to order. We have reviewed the preparation process to... More

Living gluten free can be challenge when it comes to visiting restaurants. After buying as much as we could carry at the Farmer's Market, I really needed to refuel my body!

We had an evening meal here and both chose fish and chips. We should have been concerned as there was only one other couple eating then (7pm). The waitress was pleasant but only filled the glasses with water at the start and never checked how we were getting on or asked if we wanted more. The food was extremely dry... More

I apologize for your disappointment. This item is on our Summer feature sheet and is presented as Pan Fried Fish and Chips and was intended to be a non deep fried variation of the standard item found in many restaurants as we do not have and never have had a deep fryer. It has been extremely popular and is one... More

The food at Lefty's is well worth the wait. My ten year old son commented that it was the best food he's ever had in a restaurant!
