Lefty’s Tavern & Grille (Coral Springs & Davie)
***** Lefty’s Tavern & Grille, 5771 Coral Ridge Drive, Coral Springs, Florida, (954) 752-3525.
Tonight I checked out Lefty’s Tavern & Grille in Coral Springs, which opened for business about 6 weeks ago…not bad, not bad at all.
Lefty’s has the obligatory 40+ flat screen tv sets, huge bar area, booth and table seating… throw in a kids’ arcade-game room and you have the picture. I will tell you, that I found the joint visually boring as there are no decorations on the walls other than the tv sets…this can be easily rectified by adding memorabilia pieces and sports related artwork…but for right now, the joint is too monotone for me.
Lefty’s menu is packed with appetizers, soups, burgers, sandwiches, meat-fish-chicken entrees…for some reason, there is a major emphasis on Italian pastas/dishes, but that makes the joint all the more interesting…a spin on the common sports bar/restaurant theme.
A taste test of a patty-melt, NY strip steak, prime rib, chicken parmigiana, house salad, french fries and sweet potato all successfully past…Gourmet food? Let’s not be silly, but for this type of joint, the food was very good…far superior to the stuff that you get at your local Ale House or Duffy’s. Very competent wait-staff…As for price points, right in-line with what you would expect your neighborhood sports bar to get.
In doing some checking, I found that the there is also another Lefty’s located at 11300 State Road 84, Davie Florida (954) 474-1410…Take a look at the Davie joint’s website www.leftystavernandgrille.com… from what I can tell, the new Coral Springs’ location appears to be a much bigger version of the original and the menu though similar is not exactly the same. A quick Google Search indicates that the Davie joint apparently has been around for a number of years and has quite a loyal following.
If you live in the Coral Springs/Parkland area, Lefty’s is a good place to know about. The joint is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.
