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

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
