Lucille's American Cafe is a 1940s- style upscale diner that captures the "luncheonette" feel of that era's most popular eateries, but seasons it with a dash of 21st-Century finesse. It is conceived as a comfortable neighborhood respite from the home kitchen. Homemade food, served in a stylish but casual atmosphere, with large portions and value pricing make it particularly attractive to families with children as well as couples and singles. Take-out and delivery service, as well as catering, are available and just a phone call away.Old-fashioned oscillating fans are hung on the walls over the dining room. Liberal use of dark wood, ceramic tile, chrome, leatherette, fabric, mirrors, bullet- shaped hanging light fixtures and wall sconces contribute to the feeling of authenticity. The predominant colors are seafoam green, black, taupe and ivory, selected for a 1940s palette. They complement the interior design and are lively, but easy on the eyes.Seating is provided in booths or free standing tables. The chairs are framed in chrome, like those found in a typical family kitchen in the 1940s, and finished in black leatherette. The booths are upholstered in a combination of seafoam green and black. Also offered are patio tables that overlook a vast lake, the perfect atmosphere on a brisk day.Owners Paul & Beth Nunez believe that high quality food and friendly service will keep guests coming to Lucille's. The philosophy is simple: Do everything possible to exceed guests' expectations in food, service and atmosphere. Lucille's wants guests to feel good enough about their dining experience that they would tell others of their experience.

A wait!

We ate here 2 suppers in a row. Had to wait at least a half hour each time. The food was good, staff very nice. Local eat here, as well as tourists which made for the wait. Chicken pot pie could be shared--it's huge!

We had flown down to Florida a day early for a cruise and were staying in Weston the night before. Doing homework, as usual before our cruise, I had come across Lucille's Cafe and was drawn to it due to the reviews. I actually like to find little cafe's or diners and try places where the locals like to go.... More

We were driving through and saw this as a suggested restaurant and decided to try it and we were glad we did. The old time atmosphere was charming and out of the past. The staff was excellent as we never waited or had to ask for anything. The food was very good and reasonably priced.

I've been sick for 2 days with food poisoning from this place. I hadn't eaten anything all day and was hungry to go there. Don't order the steak salad, I've been vomiting, dizzy and feeling bad since I ate there.

The service was great. The prices were a little high. The homemade chips and ketchup were good but the meatloaf and Mac and cheese and bread pudding were just "so-so" Maybe our expectations were too high after reading the reviews. We are here visiting so we will probably give it another chance and will write another review if it is... More

This was first occasion to have lunch at this restaurant (Had dinner on several other occasions with family members) We were promptly seated and greeted by our lovely waitress Alyssa who always gave us a warm smile and insured that what we ordered met our requests (we had modified the West Coast Blackened Chicken Salad to have grilled chicken and...

We had a large group for a Bon voyage luncheon. All the meals were well presented and the right temperature. This is American comfort food of the first order.

This restaurant has a nostalgic atmosphere with excellent food. Prices are very reasonable. Would describe menu as "comfort food". Pork chops were cooked just right with real mashed potatoes. Service was good and they send you home with little muffins for your breakfast.
