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

Hadn't been here in quite awhile .... that wont happen again ;) That first bite of lobster dipped in butter.... Nirvana ! The shrimp cocktail was so fresh and tasty too! I think the price was fair due to quantity and quality too. Service very attentive. I highly recommend this place for a bite of delish seafood!

Lefties is a unique Dallas eatery in that it is the most authentic neighborhood place of which I know that still maintains excellent food quality. These owners have been together so long that the operation is seamless: Fast, high quality, Cajun flair seafood at a great price. The place is smoke friendly, but unnoticed in the restaurant area. The bar... More

Don't let the location, in a mostly abandoned strip mall on north side of Beltline Road in Addison, fool you. Been here a long time for a good reason. Quiet atmosphere and you can taste the sea in the seafood. In other words, they don't over manipulate their dishes and they have a deft hand in prep temperature, never overcooking... More

We tried Lefty's on a Saturday night with another couple. First, the greeter and server were excellent. Could not have asked for more. However, the blue point oysters on appetizer special were puny. And the 1 lb lobster I ordered for dinner was much tougher (at least the tail was!) than I would have expected given the restaurant's moniker. The... More

Mostly everything about Lefty's is fresh. Some great stuff on the menu. (Did not like the mussels, but that's a personal preference).Prices are reasonable (for seafood), especially lobster. Service is average.The place can get crowded and noisy on a weekend, so make reservations. I've had better on the Greek Islands, but this the best you'll get in the Dallas area.

I enjoyed the genuine customer service during my dining experience. The seafood was fresh and well seasoned. The average prices for appetizers were between $7.99 to $12.99. The average prices for entrees were $15.99 to $29.99. The portions were large and worth the price. Cocktails and wine was available as well. Live Lobsters were seen for selection. Basket of free...

It is hard to find good seafood in Texas but this place is outstanding! We sprung for the Surf and turf. It was pricey but we shared and had plenty left over. The atmosphere is good and the service couldn't have been better! Don't let the outside fool you. This place is immaculate on the inside. It's great for a... More
