Great location, service, happy hour, menu, atmosphere and drinks! A fun place to meet friends after work for a quick drink and appetizer, meet for lunch, or even a romantic dinner.

A friend of mine suggested Lefty's. I was totally impressed. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the food was good. The service was more like a five-star restaurant. This was my first time eating here - I will remember this place and visit Lefty's again.

Worst experience, rude server ,don't think if you order something and have a problem with it, you can have it taken off the bill even if untouched. Will never go back.do not recommend to anyone.

Ate out for dinner with a group of friends. We had the back room where we were comfortable and could talk and laugh without disturbing others or us disrupting them. Food was fabulous - good drink specials and wine list. Fried green tomato caprese salad...More
