We stopped in for a quick lunch before going grocery shopping because we all new shopping on an empty stomach could be dangerous on the junk food front. I really enjoyed are lunch there it was incredible and reasonably priced and our waitress Carmen was a pleasure to deal with. A rather peculiar decor but very interesting at the same time. They've managed to arrange it so that it so it's open but the noise is at a perfect level to enjoy your meal and visit. Looked forward to trying other items on the menu again.

Thank Rod H

Had lunch there, wanted to come back for dinner but no time. The food was good and exactly what and how we ordered it. Service was great, friendly, courteous and professional. Recommended.

I had dinner at Lefty's with another couple and our children. The wait staff were accommodating but if I had know how close the tables and booths were I would habe elected to go elsewhere with my kids. This is not the best restaurant for children.

Prices were around $18 to $24 for entrees but I found the portion sizes to be quite small so the value for money is not there.

Thank you AJM0079, your review allows us to look at how we currently do things. Reviews such as this one makes us reevaluate they way we seat people, how and where we place/take reservations and ask the hard questions of quality over quantity, and value.

We had both dinner and breakfast at Lefty's on our recent trip to Parksville and in both instances the food and service were outstanding. My husband has food allergies, and the service staff were both helpful and accommodating. I will definitely return and highly recommend this spot.

Very crowded conditions, I love hot spicy foods but my pizza was over the top. I feel most people could not have eaten it. Service was good. Might have been chiefs not best night.

Thank you NormAnn1931 for bringing to our attention issues you had with your experience. We are a small restaurant and I agree can feel crowded. When the server is made known immediately of any issue we have the opportunity to remake, make something new or discount the item for our guest. Sometimes it is just an issue of not liking an item ordered or like in your case too spicy, not a problem let us fix it and make it right.
