“good food”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

My family and I often choose Lefty's for a good burger! The new location is much better than the old one with much more room and faster service. Just wish the menu was more varied and that desserts were a priority for choice.

“Great Food, Great Service”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

This is my first time in the new location which is wonderful and full of atmosphere. The burgers at Lefty's are terrific and the more expensive items were reported by the group as "great."

..... and my goodness they even split up the bill for us into couples since all four couples had something widely varying in price...... so we did not have to go through the horror of Friar Tucks where even the owner didn't care about their customer's time and convenience, refused to provide separate checks for six couples and rushed us out after our $900 dinner for twelve.. This is the result I suppose of too much business and too few customers demanding quality service to go with the "high quality" price. . Try Lefty's you will have a much more comfortable experience. Or for a steak I recommend the Willow. For the best service and upscale food at an upscale price go to the New Moon.

“Nice atmosphere , slightly pricey”
Reviewed December 12, 2013 via mobile

2 delicious burgers, a draft beer & a cup of tea. $40. Seemed like a lot but the food was good, service average. We sat at bar and enjoyed the atmosphere. It was busy so locals must frequent which is usually a good sign. We were passing through.

Thanks for stopping by on your way through! We are glad you enjoyed your visit and hope you will return and try some of our specials, like our Wednesday Night Blue Plate dinner which includes a salad, main course, side dish and a sweet treat for dessert---still only $15.

“Just average all the way around.”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant location has been jinxed for years. Lefty's is better than some earlier attempts but there is nothing special about the menu and definitely nothing special about the service, which is usually inadequate. But lacking much else in the moderate price range in Nevada City, we do go there. We just always leave a bit disappointed.

Thanks for stopping by and letting us know about your recent experience. Lefty's works very hard to deliver consistent high quality cuisine in a casual white linen atmosphere. We constantly upgrade our staff orientation and training. We hope you will continue to visit and leave satisfied.

“A good Restaurant”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

The food is good, service is good, albeit a little noisy, it is a fun place to visit,The only complaint I would have is that the price of beer is a little bit to hight comparing to other restaurants in the area.
So, enjoy the food and drink a little less beer.
