I don't know if it is because of the fact that this place made it on Diners Drive Ins and dives or what but my two visits there left me wondering why people go there... Even though they were not tremendously busy, we sat there for over 10 minutes waiting for our waitress to come to our table for the... More

If you are looking for breakfast, brunch or an amazing cup of coffee Lucky's is your place. Small cafe tucked away in a residential area. Street parking. We went for Sunday brunch and it was packed, of course. Seating is limited but wait was not bad (40 min). Due to limited space the only place to wait is a very... More

On a recent trip to Cleveland we tried Lucky's based on the show from Guy Fieri on Food Network! We were thrilled with the whole experience! Brit was our server she was wonderful. We split the Reuben & the Mac & Cheese...both were wonderful. What was impressive was the care & thoughtfulness of the food. Everything was quality. Our smoothie... More

Love love love everything I've gotten from Lucky's. My favorite brunch spot in this area. My husband lived in the South for 8 years and he says they're biscuits and gravy are the best he's ever had. Everything made with REAL ingredients.

The food is delicious, but since they were on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives - their prices have gone through the roof! The staff are all nice and pleasant but the space is so cramped that you are literally sitting on top of the people next to you or behind you. They rave about how they pride themselves on using local,... More

I would love to write a review, but we arrived at 4:17 which apparently is an absurd time to show up at a restaurant . Get there between 10 and 3 or else.

Amazing Mac & Cheese (try it with the applesauce!) and their grilled cheese sandwich w/ tomato soup is out of this world- best I've ever had! I don't eat meat, but they're known for the Reuben- my fiance orders it every single time we go.

We had read several reviews for this small cafe in Cleveland's Tremont neighborhood and were anxious to give it a try. We arrived on a Sunday around noon to a 20 minute wait. We grabbed a coffee and stood outside to wait our turn. The service was efficient if chaotic in the small crowded space. My mac and cheese was... More

To sum up, the "locally sourced" fad is still in force here. I watched them charge a 10 year old boy $4 for a side of syrup for his waffle. In all it's the most expensive breakfast place I've ever been excepting expensive hotels. The coffee was excellent though.

Tried this restaurant in Cleveland's Tremont neighborhood, one of several in that city visited by 3D. All local and fresh ingredients, everything made on the premises. We shared an order of sausage gravy and biscuits-actually scones-to start. The dish was flavorful, not greasy, and delicious. The andouille sausage sandwich was great, with a light but spicy BBQ sauce on a... More
