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.

The take out was just made average. The service was mediocre at best. Food, was ok. If i were in town I may try the sit down restaurant based upon the other reviews. My barely average rating could be because the two high school aged girls behind the counter were un friendly and and seemed annoyed to have to serve... More

Lucille's was decorated very authentically in a 50's decor. The restaurant has two sides; one which is a take out and the other which is a sit down. They have different hours -- be observant of that when you visit. The food was average, but there are better values for the money in the area.

This is an above-average American-style dining establishment. Smallish place, but big menu. Burgers are good. The wait staff is A plus, because they will be helpful and upbeat no matter what. Little muffins in a bag are gratis and was a nice surprise. It's not a bad option for the local crowd. Fun atmosphere and always seems busy which is... More

We ate there with my family (about 20 in total) and everything was great. The food was excellent and so was the wait staff. We ate outside and so my daughters (4 & 6) fed the fish and turtles in the lake. There is an alligator in the lake, but we didn't see it. I would highly recommend Lucille's.

Large menu with all the usual suspects...pork chops, meatloaf, many salads, burgers and mac...all well priced with good portions from what I could see on the tables in a relatively full restaurant. WE had the pork chops and they were cooked just right, with a bit of charring but juicy. We shared the meal between two people and the waitress... More

The food was your old time local favorites, meat loaf, fried chicken and good coffee. we preferred the indoor seating, because of the weather that day, but the outdoor is terrific during nice weather.

This is a nice place to go if you want a good Americana dinner style meal. The food is good, prices are reasonable and the people working there do a good job at making you welcome. I do recommend this place.

Lucille's Original Crispy Chicken Salad was really great. My husband thought the Steakhouse Salad was wonderful. We are looking forward to a return visit. They were very busy and it appeared people other than normal wait staff were assisting. We were not in a hurry so had no problems but others were expressing concerns about the wait.
