Well they try to create an "authentic" seafood place. It did remind of cute places on the Cape Cod and other Maine/New Hampshire seashore. But this was very ordinary. Way too loud that you had to scream to have a decent conversation with an office colleague. And I think someone was smoking inside the restaurant though I am not sure.... More

A good friend ate hear a couple of weeks ago and was impressed with the food and suggested we give it a try. I made reservations for Saturday night and was looking forward to a good meal, but that's not what we got. We started with the Caesar Salad and it was the best part of the meal. I had... More

We discovered Leftys 7 years ago and tell everyone how great it is. The best chowda in Dallas and whenever we have a craving for some east coast lobster it's the place to go. Until today....the lobster was raw. thank goodness I noticed it as soon as I cracked the claw...never again

My wife and I had a nice early Saturday evening meal. This is a well established local joint, with a loyal older crowd. I had two lobsters, which met my expectations. My wife had their signature seafood pasta dish, which I wish I had gotten! Staff was great and, as in the title, the price was reasonable. We will be... More

Lefty's is famous for its one claw lobster. Reasonably priced, casual atmosphere and good service. Another great addition to a meal is either their lobster bisque or clam chowder. If your undecided they will mix the 2 of them together and you won't regret it. Have a great time and fun meal!

We've been going to Lefty's for over 15 years and it never disappoints. The seafood is fresh, the drinks are good, service staff appear to be many of the staff for as long as we've been eating there. Love the king crab legs that are huge! Hubby loves the crab/shrimp topped fish. We don't often get dessert but creme brulee... More

Business associate and I dined early Saturday evening, no waiting. Owners and staff same as last year - warm & inviting. This small venue is decorated with red walls and autographed photos of famous diners. The service is always extraordinary, as was the seafood. I had the Lobster Bisque and the Cajun Seafood Pasta. My associate ordered the Steamed Clams,... More
