Delicious fresh food! The pork was really tender and seasoned well. They had a seasonal menu that have us plenty of options. The service was attentive.

Angela, Thanks for dining with us! Our grits come from Guilford County in NC. The mill is over 200 years old and still uses water power! My favorite way we serve them is our Shrimp and Grits with Andouille sausage. Shrimp, sausage, tasso ham gravy, and Old Mill of Guilford grits. Doesn't get much better!

We love to go here for date nights. Everything is always delicious. I love the Cornmeal Crusted Carolina Catfish and my husband likes the black bean cakes. The grits as a side are awesome.

I stopped in at Lucky 32 one night before heading to a concert. They were absolutely packed in the dining room, but since I was by myself grabbing a seat at the bar was no problem. Overall service was good; I can't recall anything particularly noteworty in that regard. I ordered the Voodoo Pig Bread appetizer (pulled pork and cheese... More

Eight adults, 8 kids, all had a great meal and the food was prepped to perfection and we all got served withing seconds of each other. Their menu is really great and the place is really unique in the area.

We visited Lucky 32 twice during our stay in Raleigh. Both times we were seated promptly in their outdoor patio. We decided to try as many southern specialties as we could - fried green tomatoes, Johnny cake, collard greens, jambalaya - all were delicious, although my husband wasn't a huge fan of the collard greens. Fried green tomatoes - yummy!!... More

After great lunch experiences (divine fresh fried artichoke hearts), we tried dinner from what appeared to be the same menu with larger entrees. My perfectly cooked catfish, asparagus, sinfully rich sweet potatoes, and nice salad were all just wonderful. We wanted to visit over drinks, so the slower paced service was agreeable. Yes, there is a "but": my companion's "rib... More
