Lucky 32 has always been reliable and good. Menu updated often with seasonal favorites. Their fried Chicken last fall was great. Also like the choices provided on how much wine you can get. Good bar area Also periodically get coupons from then

Our Skillet Fried Chicken is actually available every Wednesday night from 4:00 until we run out! A breast, leg and a wing, pan-fried in Locally-rendered lard, served with mashed potatoes, giblet gravy, collard greens and a hunk of dipping cornbread. Delicious!

We try to go to Lucky 32 once a month to take advantage of their menu rotation. We love their menu mainstays and love to try their new offerings. Service has always been top notch. Doesn't hurt to make reservations if you know when you want to go.

Lucky 32 is our go-to restaurant where we can always count on great food and attentive service. It's one of the few places we enjoy equally as both a family night or couples night out.

THis is a great restaurant with menus that change with the seasons. They have a nice atmosphere and great wine selection. The menu is varied and the interior of the restaurant is nicely appointed and comfortable. Location is centralized and parking is plentiful. The outside patio area is charming.

Unlike most southern restaurants, where virtually everything is deep fried, Lucky 32 has many options. I'm allergic to gluten, and battered food would be catastrophic. I selected a perfectly prepared steak. The Ambiance is also excellent. Great for a date or special occasion. The staff is experienced, knowledgeable and professional. Management also appears to treat them well (that's important to... More

This has become a go-to for my fiancee and myself for weekend brunch. The prices are unbelievable for the quality of food you're served. The OJ is fresh squeezed and comes highly recommended.

We were here for lunch and they had the best selection of salads I have ever seen. The salads were creative with very fresh ingredients. The dressings were outstanding and not the run of the mill choices. A great choice for lunch.

Thank you for the kind words! We do make all of our dressings in house and that helps add a lot to the quality of the dish. The Buttermilk Herb is my favorite, sort of like our version of ranch dressing. Greg Miller Service Manager Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen More

Thank you for visiting us so frequently! The Southern Crescent Chicken Sandwich is a personal favorite and a guest favorite. You just can't beat house-made pimento cheese, Texas Pete fried onions, bacon, and a toasted challah bun. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
