I can understand why Lucky gets rave reviews and other reviews not so good. It is not your typical Roanoke restaurant. Small, gathered about a long bar, it can become loud (beautiful tin ceilings don't help). Don't even try to have an appetizer, entree and dessert for under $25. We had two drinks, 2 appetizers , 2 salads and 2 desserts for $85 before tip. And yet, it was worth it! The Rappahannock oysters were fresh and sweet, the beet and goat cheese salad, delightful. I can't explain how wonderful the Creme Brûlée with foie gras was. My husband and I couldn't decide which was better, the bread pudding with bourbon pecan sauce or the creme. My lime marguerite was made with fresh lime juice and was tangy and refreshing. Sometimes you have to pay for quality and experiment to have a truly unique dining experience. Lucky has provided Roanoke with that opportunity and we should be grateful.
