We have lunch here occasionally ... they have very good food and an extensive menu. Everything is homemade ... their desserts are wonderful!

Enjoyed dinner at this popular Qualicum Beach restaurant. The maple glazed salmon was delicious. Half order of ribs got a thumbs up too though portion size seems very conservative. The rice and vegetables were nicely done. The service was solid, and I would definitely return for dinner or lunch.

We ended up at Lefty's in Qualicum after a very bad experience trying to eat at The Final Approach. We were seated immediately and treated by a super friendly waitress named Erin! After our previous bad experience Erin (who was on the wiser) made us feel like we had made the best choice ever and were about to have a... More

We enjoy Lefty's after completing errands in Qualicum Village or at the Parksville location and have eaten here at least 6 times. An interesting menu with beer and wine choices. We particularly like the Thai shrimp on rice, which is slightly different at each restaurant. Friendly staff and good value.

so you are starving for lunch & you pop in just before 1 pm - the first rush is over and you should expect to be able to order & be served within 20 minutes, right? The menu is simple - it was just a salad and a sandwich order. But 35 minutes later we get the meal. Noticed others... More

Hi Derah D - thanks for your review. 35 minutes is not a timing standard that we aim for and as such, I have brought your complaint to the attention of our chef who was working that day. It's been awhile since we have had a complaint about portion (i.e. food serving) sizes of our dishes. A starter-size salad in... More

We have been to Lefty's a few times now since moving here. The price is definitely reflective of what you get. Yes about $15 average per item but worth it. The burgers taste homemade. The Bolder Mac and Cheese is amazing. The Chicken Burger is also very very yummy.

My boyfriend and I ordered two pizzas - a pepperoni/meat and the cheeseburger pizza (I forget the names). The pizzas were personal sized but priced as though they'd be much bigger. However, they were both very tasty. I just wanted to mention that we were seated in a booth directly across from the face of the kitchen, and the manager... More

We have appreciated Lefty's since we moved here 16 years ago. We are rarely disappointed. Without realizing it, we arrived close to closing time but they left us to relax and enjoy a pizza and a glass of wine and never hinted that we were there so late. Good food and wine, excellent service from an experienced waiter and a... More

We stopped off on our way from Victoria to Tofino for a coffee. The staff were very friendly and he selection of cakes was stunning. My wife had a slice of lemon meringue which was massive, but I was advised it was the lemon meringue that she has eaten.
