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

If you are hungry for seafood go to Lefty's in Addison. Their specials on the menu are worth a visit. The wine list is also very good. It is noisy if that bothers you, but the noise is happy frivolity.

I am part of a networking group that met here for lunch. Their service was wonderful and the atmosphere was fun and inviting. The energy level was perfect for opening up conversation and the food was delicious. The salmon was absolutely amazing! I plan to bring my family for dinner soon!

Been going to Lefty's for years and it never fails to provide a good meal at reasonable prices. The thing I like best is the way its run by family and the servers who have been there for years. Usually get the fish special or lobster, but everything is good from stuffed fish to bisque. The only thing I might... More

The restaurant is located in a shopping center under going renovation (Spring 2014) and is the only tenant open at this time. Lefty's has been open for 18 years and is family run; two of the brothers working the Saturday night. Very helpful and pleasant waitress (has been there 17 years). Décor is funky Italian, not high end. Lobster bisque... More

There are so many great restaurants to choose from in Addison, but this is one of the best I have eaten at. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant- not the normal "chain" restaurant type of feel. I had the flounder special and it was delicious. They only have a small selection of beer on tap, but they were good... More

Been coming to Lefty's for many years and it was as good as always. This trip I had the best lobster I have ever eaten. Everyone's selection was excellent. Although it is know for seafood, my wife had the Filet and it was extremely tender and cooked perfectly. Another was allowed to order fish dish prepared to their liking, rather... More

The old forgotten (by me) Lefty's. Here's why it shouldn't be forgotten...listen to what I learned while speaking with the chef today. - He picks his lobsters up alive, just flown in at the airport. - He know's the boats and fishermen on a first name basis that catch his shrimp. - They make EVERYTHING in house except the bread....

And it was wonderful. Not sure why we had never tried Left's Lobster before. My Mom and I both had seafood dishes that had a nice sauce. Thick well cooked fillets of fish. So delicious. Wife had a 'culled' lobster (1 claw taken for other dishes). It too was well cooked and tasted great. Full bar available. Great service. Intimate... More
