If you're looking for a restaurant that provides the perfect ambiance for an intimate dinner for two, or one that allows a group of friends to enjoy both good food and good cheer, then this is the place you've been looking for! We took the chance of walking in on a Friday evening at 7 pm without making reservations ahead... More

I absolutely love Good Luck and visit often. The burger is the best in the area and is worth the trip just for that. I have also had their margherita pizza, fried chicken, steak, and various seafood dishes with all of them being excellent. The dining room staff are always outstanding. I have to give them 4 stars though because... More

...however, the lighting is very poor and service a bit to slow. There were four of us and we have been before for drinks. Our server was very pleasant and professional, food itself was good quality for the price. Be aware, most entrees are to share and they are very large. The parsnip appetizer was excellent and burgers are something... More

We bellied up to the bar after waiting about 5 minutes to get close enough. The bartender showed us a... More

Well, this was a treat. The restaurant is hopping with atmosphere, and the food is simply wonderful, with complicated flavours. They offer many dishes for sharing---a great idea. We did not have a reservation, but managed to get seats at the bar, where a complete menu is served. Loved it.

The food is meant to be shared so you get to taste many items on menu! It goes from crazy good fried chicken to braised oxtail! The menu changes frequently but keeps some of the faves.. Like the best burger I have ever had !! A cool" loft " like atmosphere.. You won't be disappointed!

We first went to Good Luck at the end of August, 2015 as a send off for my son, who we were dropping off for his Freshman year at the University of Rochester. Our experience there was just stellar. We didn't know exactly what to expect, but what we got was absolutely fantastic food, creative and wonderful cocktails, served by... More

This place was recommended to us by some locals we ran across earlier in the day. We showed up with no reservations (party of two) and expected to have to eat at the bar. Much to our delight we were able to score a table after waiting only 45 minutes or so, just enough time to watch the bartenders work... More
