Great birthday venue. Good food & service

I was part of our couples who celebrated a birthday and we had a marvelous time. The food was delicious and the service was spot on. The ambiance was nice and not stuffy - in the manner of a more relaxed "chowder house." I had the lobster bisque for an appetizer and the Lefty's pasta for the... read more

Lefty's has amazing food. We went with friends who had been before. They were so right. The food was delicious. Very casual atmosphere with families. We definitely be back soon. And will bring more friends.

My wife and I always make it a point to eat here when we are in town. The best seafood in town but if you are really lucky they will make you a chicken fried steak made with filet mignon pounded thin with a crispy coating that melts in your mouth. The best crab legs as well. We always sit... More

Located off of Beltline in a small mall, it is easy to miss this wonderful restaurant. Cozy, small, and so inviting!! Give it an opportunity to impress!

I'd read the hype, but this really did live up to the reviews. It's a no-nonsense place, noisy, fun, unpretentious, with a raucous bar, and booth tables set a bit higher up (worth it). The only problem is that the table lighting is too low - ya can't see ya lobster too well!! But that doesn't matter much when they... More

We have been frequenting Lefty's for years. Love the food and atmosphere. Frank Sinatra croons to you while you eat. Good place to take the wife or girlfriend.

I was looking for a seafood place while in town. This was a great spot! It's hidden within a strip center, but the food is worth finding. Their lunch menu was a great deal for the amount of food we got. The staff was friendly, and knew exactly how to make the perfect drink!

My husband proposed to me at Lefty's 16 years ago and I cannot remember how many anniversaries and birthdays we have celebrated there. Our friends and family always enjoy it as well The stuffed lobster is perfect, never dry or soggy. When available, the Blue Point oysters are very full and fresh. Service is good, small venue, and the old... More

Managed to get in on a busy Friday night. Food was great. Lighting was dark so it was hard to see what I was eating.

My husband and . I just returned from visiting our son and his wife. They took us to Lefty's and now we are sorry. Why? Because there is nothing like it in Phoenix. Out of this world Maine lobster, Alaskan king crab legs, other seafood and fish dishes. Plus, extremely moderate pricing. Our table had thelobster, crab legs and halibut,... More
