Friendly crowd after work and on the weekends with large outdoor seating and indoor booths , tables and long bar. Normal bar fare in the food department. More men than women. Loud , boisterous, fun. Kids ok in daytime.

I go on business in the valley frequently, Brook at the Tyrolean got me hooked. This last visit to sun valley, on my way out of town, I wanted a quick burger to hit the road with and made the mistake of trying Grumpys out. As mentioned, that was a HUGE mistake. So I bought my raw burger and went... More

Don't let the sign on the deck discourage you from coming with your pooch. If you ask inside they're very friendly and will allow you to have your dog, well mannered dogs, on the deck outside. The beer, the burgers and the atmosphere was all conductive to a nice afternoon in Sun Valley. I would heartily recommend lefties!

Good local place for a burger and fries. They have a great outdoor deck with plenty of seating. This is a no thrills place, but a great place to get the local vibe.

Seems like it would be greasy bar food, but it is actually really tasty and we couldn't get over how *nice* the salad was-- spring greens, toppings, etc. Not something you would find in a "dive bar". Food was great, local on tap root beer was most excellent..and the outside atmosphere was awesome...watching sunset over the mountains. Inside was a... More

Looking for a place to eat in Ketchum, we went back to Lefty's as we knew their food was good and they have a great outside eating area. This time they also had some local musician. Again I had the Lefty burger (which was great) and the Monkey fries (a must). We were able to sit, relax and order a... More

A very tasty and generous size burger considering the price and location. No table service, once inside just walk up and order drinks and food.
