Quite true. Many Lisp-based implementations include compilers, and many can generate very nice code (especially if given some type hints).
Some people are put off by Lisp's syntax ((((((lots of parens, no built-in infix)))))). If you're one of them, you might want to check out this page on making Lisps readable, in particular, sweet expressions.
