We stopped in at Lefty's for an early lunch with our 3-year old, and were incredibly impressed with not only the quality of the food, but the extensive menu, and the fabulous treatment our toddler received from the staff. As parents, we don't always choose...More

Toddlers are people too! And they can't help but being themselves, hangry or not! We all know how difficult it can be with little ones. We are truly pleased you and your husband enjoyed your lunch.

We had dinner here last night. 7 family enjoyed their meals. Friendly service, good food and great desserts. Even had a gluten free pineapple dessert to die for.

What a disappointment! Loved the friendly down to earth staff and the interesting unique decor. Everyone there seemed to enjoy themselves and the overall ambiance was wonderful. Was looking forward to the food but was quite a letdown. Bad night? Different kitchen staff? Who knows....More

Delicious pizza, even though cheese can be a bit sparse to almost nonexistent on some slices. Delicious pasta. Delicious coconut cream pie. I thought the small mediterranean salad was a bit tiny and lacking in veggies other than lettuce. The service, though friendly and helpful,...More

The menu had promise, with several great options. The pizza looked delicious, but against my better judgement, I sought a simple burger. It was very spicy, thick with onions and chilly powder in the handmade patty. Sadly, that was the highlight. The waitress was frazzled...More

We recognize that tastes are subjective and strive to find flavours which appeal to the majority of our guests. Our house made burgers being one of them, we tried to keep it simple as it is also served on the kid's menu, we're truly sorry...More

The restaurant is located in a strip plaza, near a grocery store, so is a little light on "atmosphere", but the service and food were good. We were not able to try the patio, due to weather, and it was basically on the parking lot,...More
