    What can I say... This place is a hidden gem! It's been around forever, but doesn't like to brag. I think the younger crowd is missing this because it's not "trendy". But I'll tell you... Best seafood in town!

    Lefty’s never disappoints. Martinis were ice cold and made to order. Two lobster tails and sea bass special entrees were terrific.

    I've been enjoying the menu at Lefty's for years. I took my sister who was visiting from NYC there along with my girlfriend and her two daughters. Everyone had nothing but praise for their meals. I have never had a bad meal there. Whether it's a Tuna Burger for lunch or the Sea Bass for dinner, you can't go wrong.

    The recipes and quality of our seafood was the best I have had in the DFW area. The lobster bisque had large pieces of lobster and tasted phenomenal. My sea bass and my wife's snapper was amazing. I really enjoyed the coconut creme pie based on a recommendation from our server and I do not like coconut creme pie. We will return.

    Great Seafood, especially the Lobster Bisque American, big chunks of Lobster. So rich and good! It can be a meal itself. The fried shrimp is soooo good! Big plump shrimp. Better than any other seafood fried shrimp. First time tried the Fried Lobster and Shrimp, it was good.

    Alejandro, our waiter, was fantastic. He advised us a 2020 Pouilly-Fuissé from Louis Latour, very reasonably priced for a wine of this quality. Obviously we drank this as an aperitif and for our meal. A real treat. Then my wife took a lobster bisque and I took the clam chowder, both were superb, Thzn we took each a lobster with a potato and a corn on the cob. The lobster was memorable, cooked to perfection with a beurre blanc sauce. For desert we took a crème brûlée and a key lime pie which were also very good. In summary, it was a memorable very pleasant dinner. If you intend to go, my advice is make a reservation
