Great restaurant, great staff.

We had a wonderful time here celebrating my brother in laws birthday. The wait staff was courteous quick and very personable. The food was simply delicious. We could not have been more pleased.

I was looking for an interesting restaurant in Cary having recently moved to the RDU area, and checked on trip advisor. They had listed this is one of the top restaurants, and when I looked at the menu and wine list it looked quite interesting. The actual food, quality, and service was even better than I had expected.

I really didn't expect such a wonderful experience here. The food is simple and real. I started off with the cucumber soup and was blown away. The service was prompt and accommodating. I ordered summer squash pasta for my entree and found it to be perfectly cooked and seasoned. It was topped with the most scrumptious goat cheese. Highly recommend... More

We went here to celebrate my son's birthday. We had trouble finding appetizers that would work for our group. We finally settled on the pickle platter, pimento cheese, and popcorn okra. These did actually work out, but before they arrived I was not so sure. We then had a variety of entrees including the seasonal shrimp patties, pork on Johnny... More

If you are looking for southern dishes, THIS IS THE PLACE! The decor is beautiful to start. Before entering, there are carts outside to purchase with the HONOR SYSTEM of local produce and fruits jellies and jams. Very quaint and country! We ordered fried okra which is a seasonal dish and it was incredible! The pulled pork on Johnny Cakes... More

Jubal, Our catfish comes from a fantastic local purveyor called Carolina Classics located in Ayden, NC. They've been providing North Carolinians with delicious catfish for 30 years now. Thank you for your review! Greg Miller Service Manager Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen More

Quieter and relaxed atmosphere with both inside and outside seating. Staff are friendly without being intrusive menu is good brunch options based around Carolina food. Pecan waffles or Challal & Squeak both recommended Will go back but it's more a day time place than evening

My wife and I went here expecting it to be your typical southern BBQ joint. It was apparent immediately that it wasn't; the atmosphere inside was quite nice, almost as if a 5-star restaurant and a family diner had merged. Their menu consists of mostly southern classics though with a gourmet touch. Nearly everything appears to be sourced locally and... More
