The food was fantastic, the prices are very reasonable, but the wait was quite long considering the number of people eating here. Overall great experience and I would definetly recommend this for any family.

Thanks for your positive review. We are challenged at times as we struggle to find and train the type of personnel needed to maintain our standards. Sorry for the wait, glad you felt it was superseded by the food. More

Having lied in the area just over a year I had not eaten here. I was taking a friend out for her 63rd birthday and this is where i took her. I had made reservations so had a nice quiet table for 2 and a most enjoyable dinner out.

Stopped in here for a quick but relaxing business lunch. The service was prompt and efficient. We sat outside in the sunshine which was nice, if a little crowded in the small seating area. My colleague had the quesadilla and I had a chicken sandwich on cranberry wholegrain. Both were delicious. I would definitely pop in again.

Four of us went here for dinner. Have been here before and have always enjoyed our meal, this evening was no different. Lefty's offers what we might call 'healthy options', as their menu strives to make their offerings contain healthy, fresh ingredients as well as have the options of gluten free pastas, breads etc. Our friends had salads, a Chicken...

There is a great restaurant called Lefty's in the heart of Qualicum Beach across from Quality Foods. Breakfast was a fulfilling experience. Their menu selection was good and portions were generous. I had the "Hefty Lefty's", and my family members had waffles and pancakes. All were delicious. Our server was friendly and took care of us very well. The atmosphere... More

Lefty's is always good - our recent visit offered a few variations on the menu but still provides the old favourites, tasty salads, beef sandwich cooked to your liking, and delicious lemon meringue pie. Service is always good.

We enjoy the atmosphere and the sidewalk eating area. Great place to eat summer or winter. Food is very good and fairly reasonable. It is a favourite place for locals to meet and eat. Service is good and it is comfortable and quiet.

Thanks for your review which is especially meaningful coming from a local. Day in and day out it is our locals who know us best. Consistency is essential although difficult to sustain and it is our locals who best hold our feet to the fire. (We like warm feet!) More

If a burnt dried up hamburger, beef fajitas as tough as leatherand a snotty server appeal to you, then choose leftys. If not, go right to another restaurant!!! The overall experience with our server was awful. She certainly was not hired for her customer service skills. When asked how our meal was we said "it's 'ok'...however the fajita meat is... More

Disappointed guests are not easily convinced of the caring and commitment that is required to sustain an independent restaurant for 19 years. I apologize for your experience and can only assure you that we are no less commited than when we began. We take responsibility for all those who represent us on a day to day basis and this circumstance... More
