We ate breakfast here and it was very reasonably priced and a solid breakfast. We had the eggs, bacon and toast - the bread was a little dry. Coffee was hot and strong, a bit strong for me but some like it that way. Service was very fast and like I said, cost was right at <$10pp

Good breakfast, fast service. The eating area did smell a bit like toilets which wasn't very nice. However, it may have just been the place needed a bit of TLC.

This is a casual cafeteria style sports bar. Great atmosphere and OUTSTANDING food... i generally get the corner beef and cabbage but there are a dozen other choices, and the home-made fruit pies..YUM! Prices are minimal, and my fav: the sing-along piano bar goes on until the wee hours! Lotsa fun for little money!

Didn't eat, but had many cocktails and beers sitting around the piano, singing our hearts out. Had a great time with friendly staff and great atmosphere.

We happened into Lefty's for breakfast by accident when all nearby breakfast spots had long lines. The breakfast there was delicious and plentiful. The price was a fraction of the cost of what we paid the day before. I would highly recommend.

When we look for somewhere to eat, we always need to factor in the kids. This place was brilliant. Great atmosphere, great food and lots of memorabilia around the place. Baseball and Gridiron playing on the many wide screen tv's. As we had been on holiday for two weeks, a home cooked meal with veges was in order. They had... More

If you want a casual fun night out, I'd recommend this place. There's a live musician in the evening and people gather round him and sing along which makes for a great atmosphere. It isn't fine dining, in fact it's it's a bit like a cafeteria where you move along with a tray asking for what you want as you... More

Excellent night. We did not eat but had a couple of beers. And then a couple more. By all means go and eat - its buffet style but try to get to the front near the bar for a great nights entertainment. Good to meet new people, sing along with the man on the organ - enjoy yourself
