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

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.....
