great atmosphere in the evenings with the piano player and singer but the food was more like school dinners. people queueing with trays & cuttlery waiting to get served... not the best food ive ever tasted.

Pros: Great piano bar atmosphere, good selection of beers on tap.
Cons: Rude cocktail waitress the first night, but somewhat nicer waitress the second night. Cannot order food in the lounge.

Fast service. A museum in the restaurant. Great drinks and easy on the stomach food with unbeatable prices.

Cheap but good comfort food ( turkey, stuffing and the like, roast beef....) grab a tray, friendly help and TV screens from every angle. This place seems to be stuck in time, and thats a good thing.
Enjoy it with friends or meet new ones

My colleagues love to visit Lefty's whenever in San Francisco. I had my first two visits during this trip. The first visit was just for drinking. It was a hoot! The bartender and the locals were friendly and entertaining.

The second visit involved more people, and eating. Big mistake. Various ones tried the chopped beef, enchilada, and corned beef sandwich. Those who at the chopped beef were underwhelmed, but could still palate the food. The enchilada was huge ... but only warm inside, and filled with what looked like turkey stew. The cheese on top never melted. My corned beef sandwich was lousy. I loved corned beef on the occasion. This was an embarrassment to an establishment claiming Irish affiliation.

Stick to the bar and you'll love Lefty O'Doul's.
