Without question, the worst experience we've had in a very long time. We decided to go hear on a whim. We'd been here a long time ago and recalled good food and reasonable service. Both were void on this trip. I'll focus on just one thing. I ordered the Grill Snapper. Yuk! It was burnt to a crisp around the... More

I had the jumbo fried shrimp and french fries.Shrimp were very good, the fries were average. Jamey ordered crab cakes for an appetizer and the waitress brought them... More

The food was delicious. We had a small lobster tail & the fra diavolo seafood pasta. For appetizers we had the clam chowder and Caesar salad. Wine was tasty. Service was excellent. Other diners' noise level almost hurt my ears though...might be better on nights other than Friday. We didn't know about the lobster & seafood boils on Sundays to... More

My wife and I had dinner at Lefty's last night with another couple and really enjoyed it. I had Lefty's pasta with shrimp anduille sausage and crawfish and it was fantastic. The portions are very large and most of us took home leftovers. Our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere for a date night... More

We called to see if they could seat us on a Sunday night & they told us they had a table opening soon. We had a short wait after our arrival & the server was knowledgeable and friendly. The lobster bisque was the best! The bucket with the lobster bake was a large serving for the price and delicious. The... More

My husband and I went to Lefty's, to celebrate his birthday. I ordered the scallops, which were big and perfectly cooked. My husband had a lobster and lobster bisque. We also had coffee and desert ! The food was so good . They have really good service. This family owned restaurant is a real must .

I've been on a search for a plan B seafood restaurant for some time now. I had the fried shrimp and fries lunch at Lefty's and my wife had the fried shrimp Po' Boy. It's kinda hard to screw up fried shrimp, but clearly folks around here don't know that it's ok to put seasoning in the batter for the... More

We had a family dinner at Lefty's. The food and atmosphere were great. The service was pretty awful. Definitely worth a try, but go early.

The food here is quite simply excellent. the lobster no matter how you order is always very, very good. I had the stuffed lobster with Ritz cracker stuffing and it was delicious. The service while attentive and prompt could be a bit friendlier...but that is probably being a bit too picky on my part all things considered. We wanted to... More
