Enjoyed twice in one day

Loved Lucy's and couldn't believe our luck when we stumbled upon it. We had such a great time enjoying a few munchies and drinks before dinner, we braved a torrential downpour to end the evening with the key lime pistachio dessert. Absolutely worth every raindrop.

Started and ended our vacation here. Really cool place. Great atmosphere, service, and food!!! We ordered a chicken sandwich to go that was really good! My boyfriend had never been here before, and absolutely loved it! Places to sit in or outdoors.

I first came here a few years ago and had a really good burger. This time I came here for lunch by myself and it did not disappoint! Great brunch menu, great sandwich, and fun atmosphere.

Visited here for the first time on a getaway with girlfriends. Our hotel was across the street from here. We had the best time here! Good atmosphere. We even had lunch here one day and the food was great!

A friend and I found Lucy's while walking around in New Orleans. We stopped because it looked interesting. I ordered the shrimp and grits. It was absolutely delicious. The serving size was large and it had a little kick (spice) to it. I also had one of the best margarita's I have ever had. The staff was pretty friendly and... More

The place was loud and lively the day we visited. It was a Bud Promotion night so we got a free Bud Light and coozies. Food was good. Service was good too.

The staff is fun and the food is really good. I find myself at Lucys more than any other bar during jazz fest. See you next year.

Turns into a bit of a club vibe late night. We went for late lunch at it was great. Great Margaritas and fun snacky food. Late night it gets crowded and loud and spills out onto the street.

Desperate to find somewhere to eat with a decent rating on trip advisor, we stumbled across Lucy's. This place is always busy so we figured it must be good. They seated us immediately which was a surprise during Jazzfest weekend. It was noisy - lots of annoying pop music and drunk people at 9pm, lol! Hard to carry on a... More

I had to check this place out because I have heard so much about it. I can see why, it is delicious and amazing service! I had the Turkey Burger and my husband had the Jucy Lucy Burger. We both thought it was one of the best burger meals we have ever had! I would not have changed anything to... More
