First visit and we'd really been wanting to go for some time. It was very crowded for a Tuesday evening - arriving at 7pm and had to wait around 20 minutes for a table. The bar was lively and easy to get a drink and the table service was attentive and quick. The food was good quality, but nothing terribly... More

All the sides need attention, mac and cheese, out of a can, devil eggs (yuck) Salad with blu cheese dressing was water with a few pieces of cheese. All the meals were just average, nothing to brag about. the previous reviewers must have been on the road a long time and would brag about anything.

My husband ordered the shrimp and grits -- excellent!!!!!!! I ordered the black bean burger which was just okay for me. A little boring in taste. A lot of wonderful seasonal choices on menu. Outside seating was a nice change on a beautiful day. Staff very nice and helpful. A first visit to Lucky 32 and will be back.

After a morning flight from Florida to Cary, it was a refreshing treat to visit this restaurant. The staff was first rate, friendly, and accommodating. This was my first visit to Cary and the restaurant was not far from my hotel - so convenience lead me to this establishment. The price point for lunch was reasonable and the food wonderfully... More

We got to the the Hampton Inn and could not be happier to see that Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen was almost across the street. It was so refreshing. The menu is seasonal, which I love. I am vegetarian and had several options to choose from. My husband's salmon was fresh and delicious. There was an extensive menu. We were all... More

My colleague and I needed a great meal before a long event so we stopped by Lucky 32 and were pleasantly surprised by the nice decor and exceptionally friendly service. I got the pulled pork on Johnny Cakes and it was the best pulled pork I've ever had. It paired really nicely with the cucumber and tomato salad. Great meal... More

Lucky 32 was recommended to us by the women at the front desk of our hotel. After dining there, we came to realize, she probably gets a kickback from referrals. The meal was good, but the menu was limited and it was overpriced. We will go someplace different time.

Allison, I am sorry to hear you felt we did not provide you with a good value for your meal. Much of our produce and seasonal ingredients come from great local vendors, which often times accounts for a slightly higher menu cost. We believe that this is a good trade off and that we are still able to give guests... More

Lucky 32 has been our favorite local restaurant for years! We look forward to each new season menu. The menu is three pages with only the center page changing seasonally so there is always a standard fare which provides great choices too!

Eaten here before and enjoyed my meal that time, this time NOT so much. The steak for mostly fat and for the price it should have been a better cut..

I am very disappointed to hear that your steak was not up to our standards. We do our best to cut all of our 14oz steaks so that guests get very little fat. We obviously missed one during your visit. In the future, please feel free to let us know right away if you have an issue with your meal... More
