Great Food, Great Ambiance, Fantastic Staff

We arrived shorty after 5pm. Always drove past the restaurant but first time visiting. The Southern Style menu was full of great photos and descriptions. Our party ordered the Pulled Pork , Black Bean Cakes, and the Shrimp and Grits. We all couldn't give enough kudos to the taste of the food. Terms... read more

$20.00 for a southern meatloaf dinner is a bit expensive for me. Long wait for food (with a party of 8). Waitress was great. Service was great. Food ok.... I cook better that Lucky 32. I'm going to Cracker Barrel next time. That's true southern cooking.

The she crab soup was wonderful. My beans had a little frozen lump still in the middle. I had the ribeye. It was flavorable but for $28 I expected really good. Our service was excellent and the restaurant decor fun. There are a number of WW II era B&W photos on the wall that are attractive. It was good enough... More

The food was delicious and the ambiance was lively. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. Six of us ate for $160 - a good value.

We did not have reservations for this visit, which probably normally isn't a problem. But when we arrived at 11:45 a.m., we saw a long section of tables set up down the middle of the dining room for a large party they were expecting at 12:30. We were immediately a little concerned since our party included a 2-year-old who is... More

I've been a regular at Lucky 32 for years for lunch. I'm local and realize I'm not good at reviewing local places, but always do reviews when traveling. Back to lunch. Menu changes by seasons, so nice to have changes, but my favorite is the Texas Pete coated salmon with fries and deviled eggs. I nice change from most lunch... More

I've never been to Lucky 32 for dinner, but for lunch it's a nice, slow pace to relax and have a good meal. I must mention though that the hostess can get a bit huffy if you don't want to sit where she wants to seat you (why do they always want to seat you near the kitchen or bathroom?)

Good restaurant layout but boring menu which changes every quarter. Same daily vegetable (green beans) for years.

Thank you for your feedback. I wanted to clarify that green beans are actually on our base menu and available year round! Our daily veggie is something unique almost every day, today being roasted rutabaga with lemon and thyme. Often times we will have delicious sides like mustard braised cabbage, ratatouille, and sweet peas and corn. Our seasonal menu changes... More

The ambiance and food are both very good. There is a wide variety of offerings on the menu to satisfy one's desire for Southern cooking. This is not a restaurant for the typical after-movie bite-to-eat, but for a special occasion it is lovely.
