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!

We'll be working hard to make sure that he is still repeating that line when he is 20 years old. Thanks for the review and especially appreciate the fact that you took the time to write it. More

Qualicum Beach was hosting a big festival the day we stopped here so the restaurant was very busy. Nevertheless, service was great as was the food. Seating is both indoors and outside. Obviously a local favorite, but a good stop for visitors traveling to Tofino too.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Lefty's. My blueberry salmon was amazing! My husband's burger was huge, perfectly cooked and delicious! Service was very good. We sat outside on the street corner patio and watched the world go by. A fun dinner at a great laid back restaurant!

Took a long time to serve meal. Salad was disappointing. Small and too much dressing and undercooked. Service was good nice environment.

Thanks for your review Susan. Summer brings the challenges of keeping bill times in check and we do our best but I am sorry this time was not up to your expectations. As to your meal, I hope you brought it to the attention of your server as, although we make mistakes, we will always take responsibility by making it... More

We sat outside for a late lunch, had a good mountain view. Ordered several "features", and were told they were out (but then the weren't). The mussels were great, clams good (though the Sake sauce was not a favorite of ours). Kids menu available (and kids get a free tattoo if they are left handed).

First night back in Q.B. and hungry...no brainer...leftys. good choices for food, made fresh from local sources...excellent quality and portion sizes. Home run if you're looking for a mid priced meal that leaves you feeling satisfied.

The menu catered to gluten free and vegan so we were anxious to try Leftys but we were disappointed. It's a cut above with it's offering but the decor was not sophisticated and the halibut was overlooked and tastless.

My friends, family and I have been going to the Qualicum Beach " Lefty's" for years now. We have always found the food to be tasty, fresh, and the service good. Very friendly staff, and quick service. I own a bed and breakfast in town, and never hesitate to recommend Lefty's to our guests.

Lefty's has a branch in Parksville too, and I was much better pleased with that one. I could have sent the omelette back, but who has time for that kind of aggravation? I did mention to the waitress that it was overcooked and burned round the edges, but she went away and didn't offer to correct it. A couple of... More

Thanks for your positive comments about our Parksville location. A bad day is the most likely probability, however, excuses are not compensation for a poor experience.

Took my in-laws out for a birthday lunch and we ended up at Lefty's. The menu had a good variety of items and an excellent kids menu. We were not overwhelmed with choices and everything on the menu looked good. The online menu does not show as much as was available in the restaurant. Found some items to be pricey... More
