This place would get 4 or 5 stars form me if the service wasn't so poor. I have been going to this place long before it was on Diners Dives and Drive Inns. The food is really good, in fact it never disappoints. The mac and cheese is by fade the best I have ever had. The ruben, fantastic, biscuits... More

I am from Cleveland and visited this place for a business meeting. We decided on this location because it was featured on a food network/television show. I gave this 3 stars because the selection isn't the greatest. They don't allow substitutions and the staff needs better training for customer service. The food is good but not great for what they...

That's what my wife said. I have to agree with her. We are both tough to please but left Luckys with huge smiles on our faces and satisfied appetites. All ingredients are fresh and plates presented with a flare. The French press coffee was perfect. All pastries were fresh and outstanding. The price was right too! A "must stop" place... More

Only one breakfast place i've visited is better than this place, Dotties in San Francisco. That said, the food and atmosphere are great and I will come here every time I am in Cleveland from now on. We arrived at 8:30 on Sunday, knowing table service didnt start until 9. You can order coffee and a breakfast pastry and wait... More

Based on the recommendation of a colleague who is a Cleveland native, my wife and I chose Lucky's for breakfast during a recent weekend visit. As promised, it proved to be a funky, friendly place in an interesting neighborhood. My corned beef hash was accompanied by two perfectly poached eggs -- a culinary test that many restaurants fail -- and... More

First thing we were told NO adjustments to the menu-everything as is! (Ok, we can pick out the tomatoes-ha!) We spent nearly $200 as most items were over $15.....biscuits and gravy, Ruben and mac and cheese were superb! I'm thinking the kids were not really "welcome" hence the attitude issue.....

Walked in on a Saturday late morning and somehow there was a vacant table! Enjoyed the asparagus omelet and a smoothie. The omelet was large (could've split it) and delicious with hints of lemon, and although the smoothie's consistency was thicker than I am used to the flavor was very good. The mac'n'cheese with the applesauce is awesome! Don't be... More

We were in Cleveland for the weekend and ended up in the Tremont area. Had never heard of Lucky's but it was a cute little place so we decided to try. The staff was fabulous. The food was really good. They have gardens that you can see out the window and are all about fresh farm to table ideas. I... More

Wow...This is the best breakfast I have had in Ohio by far. Everything is local and grown. Everything here from the food to the atmosphere is excellent. I highly recommend Lucky's Café to anyone who visits Cleveland. The outdoor seating you cannot beat-next to their gardens and under a trellis with a slew of picnic tables. Their specials change on...

Went here recently for lunch. It's a cute place. The food is quality stuff. They grow their own and but local as much as possible. With farm to table places you have to be understanding of a smaller menu. Quality over quantity. I had the mac and cheese which was quite possibly better than any I've had including my own... More
