We discover this place when we came up to visit our son at RIT. Good luck is by far the best place in Rochester for a burger.

The atmosphere is the best part; casual and upcycled. We saw diners of all ages, our group ranged from 70 y.o. to 23 y.o. We were there a couple hours and it was a very pleasant meal. Food is innovative ... for instance, the desserts included 2 ice creams. Vanilla and Thai basil chocolate chip! We tried both and some... More

I visited Good Luck with my wife and adult son, and could not have been more pleased. The food menu is not large but the craft cocktail menu is, and each item served is unique to the kitchen, nicely researched, the components imaginatively paired and prepared, and the whole presented by a very friendly and attentive wait staff. The restaurant... More

I was there with my wife and my son with his wife and 3 young adults, the oldest 16 and EVERY item we ordered was outrageously delicious. We started out with a margherita pizza and appetizer platter that included items I've never had before and all were great. The braised oxtail was in a spicy tomato sauce and my 13... More

What I really love about Rochester is that it has a great sense of place, while still having enough low-cost areas that clever entrepreneurs can start new-style places like this one. We ate very, very well here, and drank good cocktails. Also, I rarely travel with kids, but on this trip we were with friends and their 5-year-old, and they... More

Well, this is highly promoted as a hip urban hot-spot, but it's just a noisy room with expensive food to us. Not very impressive. Meh.

Can't say enough good things! Food was amazing and creative. Staff was attentive and full of great suggestions. Ambience is awesome - it's a converted shoe factory and the mix between is perfect. We were there for a wedding reception but had to return to experience it again!

We really enjoy Good Luck. Always friendly and educated staff. Talented Chef and inspired menus. The craft cocktails are delicious and unique as well. My husband and I have our favorite menu items we order each time we go and always try something new and are never disappointed. I am GF & DF and they are able to help me... More

Everything was good. The entrance is poorly marked - go into the door that says "Fabrics and Findings". The bartender made us the best sazarac we've had outside of New Orleans.

First visit after many recommendations from friends and we were not disappointed. Service was prompt, attentive, friendly. The restaurant's style of shared plates, served when ready, was to our liking for sure. We went for a jalapeño cod and "the burger" ( that could easily serve 4 all on its own). Both cooked perfectly. Very good beer selection and the... More
