Our server recommended the oatmeal, biscuits and mac and cheese. The oatmeal was very good but the mac/cheese and the biscuits were extremely salty. Our server was personable and professional but this place is small, noisy and tries to be trendy. Sorry not really impressive

Quaint part of town in a fun location. We started with a broccoli/smoked gouda casserole for an appetizer, which was a generous serving. They do a French press coffee if that's your thing. I had the breakfast burrito, which was delicious. And my wife had the Shipwreck - which was a plate we could have shared. I ordered the pecan... More

Lucky' s is a fun place for breakfast and lunch. Menu is quite limited, but there are daily specials. Everything they can get within 80 miles, they do. No checks, turn in the number they place on your table to pay. Food is excellent. Try the Mac n Cheese, awesome, as is the curried chicken salad. Relax, have a nice... More

We've been here several times over the last few years and always find Lucky's to be a great spot for brunch. They serve delicious, fresh meals made with locally grown ingredients. During warm weather months we take our dog and sit outside. We always get there right when it starts serving at 9 am on weekends because it is small... More

Excellent food. I had ben several years ago but just went back it was as good as I remembered. Biscuits and gravy are ridiculously good. The brunch on the weekend is very busy, but they told us a 15 minute wait and we were seated in far less than that, which impressed me. The service is efficient without feeling rushed.... More

Based on the Food Network's DD&D and The Best Thing I Ever Ate, we decided to try Lucky's for breakfast. It is in a cozy location with an impressive city garden and great staff. I had the yogurt and granola and my husband had the sausage biscuits and gravy. While mine was OK, my husband loved his. The coffee was... More

We went for Sunday brunch and the lemon blueberry waffles and biscuits with sausage gravy did not disappoint! The coffee was good and the service was fast. There was a wait by the time we left so come early! Will definitely be back!

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
