As always, it was tasty cafeteria/deli style food, big portions, reasonably priced, with good drinks (they have a full bar), served in a comfortable sports bar atmosphere with interesting pictures, sports paraphernalia and memorabilia everywhere. I had the special... More

From the street, Lefty's looks like a sports bar, but they had a breakfast menu posted, so we tried it. Food was excellent and reasonably priced . . . a rarity in downtown San Francisco. Interesting memorabilia from Lefty O'Doul's MLB career posted throughout. Although he was a Hall of Fame pitcher, this place is a HIT!

We ate breakfast here twice during our stay. They have all of the breakfast staples (no peanut butter?) and a fast, friendly service team. The place itself has plenty of charm and memorabilia for any baseball fan!

Stayed at The Handlery, but being keen on baseball I thought Lefty's would be a fun place for breakfsst and also they were showing the World Cup. Great choice, very reasonably priced and friendly staff. My wife and I also called in again in the evening, they have a really funny Irish guy playing the piano. It was gay pride... More

We visited twice for drinks and this afternoon for lunch. Fantastic food, beautifully cooked meat for hand carved sandwiches, huge portions and a great selection of sides. Would definitely recommend.

We were here on business and staying across the street at the Westin. We didn't have a long time for a lunch break so we wandered in and were pleasantly surprised. They offered a variety of made to order sandwiches which was exactly what we were looking for. It was a little pricey but my ham sandwich was big and... More

Ate here for lunch I had pastrami sandwich and fiancée had the beef in gravy baguette....both were delicious and were very large portions. The place itself is nice typical Irish bar with sports items and photos all over the wall! Highly recommend for a relaxing lunch.

Picked up a few items and ate in our hotel room. Kids enjoyed Turkey and mashed potato. You can not place phone orders, but go in person to order, that was the only drawback.
