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

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

My husband and I had dinner here recently for the first time, he had the seafood pasta, which he thought was excellent (I agreed as I stole a few bites). I had the blueberry salmon. We both thought the salmon was over cooked and the bed of rice that it was served on was tasteless and dry. I had read... More

Though this restaurant is front and centre as you enter into town (right at the only light in QB) it does not always offer the best bang for the buck. We have been served many times over the years and have not always receive the consistent service nor meals that were presented well or hot. It does seem to be... More

My family recently enjoyed a late lunch at Leftys in Qualicum Beach. Great service, good food, great place to eat with kids. Kids menu was right up our 5 & 7 year olds' alley.

We sat outside in the sunshine, it was quiet and relatively private. The gluten free toast was delicious and locally made.Our service was fast, the food hot and the server happy. This was our second visit, we'll definitely go again.

Imagine our surprise to learn fresh food meant frozen @ Lefty's - we were absolutely amazed, shocked to find out the halibut & spotted prawns (that were in season on Vancouver Island) were frozen!!! I guess the claims of fresh food should say fresh frozen. Very, very disappointing.

I apologize for any implications you may have inferred from our name. How fresh is fresh? I offer no defense, other than to restate our commitment to serving quality products freshly prepared to order from ingredients that meet our standards of consistency, flavor and value to satisfy our guests. That is the foundation of what we have delivered for the... More

We dropped in for a late lunch with a hungry toddler. Waited a few minutes to be seated even though it wasn't very busy, but at least we were greeted. Ordered the grilled cheese with soup and a burger. Soup was very good - tasty and fresh, chock full of veggies. The sandwich was disappointing - the bread was burnt... More

A burnt piece of bread and how it can affect the outcome of a day when it's treated too casually is one which we accept responsibility for. We made an error twice in cooking it and serving it. I am sorry we disappointed you. Be assured we let ourselves down too. As to our reviews, I will let them speak... More

My husband and I recently had lunch at Lefty's and the food and service was amazing! We had the burger and club house sandwich and both meals came out quickly and tasted great. Can't wait to go back!
