This place is always crowded. It's one of the three classic dive bars in Ketchum (along with Apple's and Grumpy's). When you get there focus on finding a seat. Food and drinks are ordered from the bar. Don't be a gaper who waits for a waiter. They are famous for their monkey fries and sauce. Monkey fries are a cross... More

We were in town visiting a friend, and this was a great place to hang out and relax on the patio. The monkey fries were delicious and we enjoyed a huckleberry beer.

Ate lunch here March 26, after being out on the mountains all day it was great to be able to sit down and have a great burger and fresh cut fries. Great décor and great food, I'll be back.

Me and my husband were staying around the corner from Lefty's and would come here to grab a quick apres drink and snack. Very casual, not fancy, but a lot of fun.

My husband and I are often looking for the best local bar, and this was definitely it. Good prices on food and beer. Wasn't tourist-y or uptight. Perfect place to go after a day on the slopes.

Was hungry for a burger, and this place came highly recommended. How true! My burger was cooked to perfection, the bun was fresh, and the taste was fantastic. On top of that the fries were delicious cooked just right. Wish I lived here so I could be a regular.

A local acquaintance of mine recommended this place, so when I arrived to Ketchum just a day after the mountains closed for the Winter season, it was practically a ghost town and I was looking for a place to enjoy the warm early Spring sunshine while having a bite to eat and a beer. Lefty's really delivered that experience. First,... More

Great post skiing meal and kid friendly during the day while still being a bar. If the line is long grab a table as someone else stands in land.

This place has been remodeled and is kept pretty clean. The food and beverage menu is very fairly priced. A lot of fun on big sport event draws as there are several wide screen TV's. A great place for locals and tourists alike!
