My wife and I drove three hours to Cary NC for the second annual Chinese Lantern Festival at the Koka Booth Amphitheater but wanted to eat before going to the event. I had SEPARATELY checked TripAdvisor for good restaurants in Cary and had noted Lucky 32, but did NOT know where it was in relation to the Amphitheater/Regency Parkway. I... More

Late night, light dinner! Or so we thought. We ordered an appetizer and salad thinking they would be smaller portions as we were not hungry enough for a full meal. However the portion sizes are very generous! Voodoo Pig Bread included three good-sized pieces of bread with pork and barbecue sauce. The wintry salad was about as big as an... More

Lucky 32 has the Big 3, Food, Service, Ambience. Moderately priced, very good food, and the draft beer and glass of wine are not overpriced as in many restaurants. A fairly large restaurant, but get a reservation on weekends as the place gets busy! Burgers to large salads to nice plates with local favorites makes for a varied menu that... More

We needed a restaurant that would appeal to a wide range of ages and tastes, and would also be comfortable and just plain good. The Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen delivered on all aspects. I appreciated being able to reserve a table for 7 on a busy Saturday night and that they called to confirm that reservation. The table was waiting... More

I recently visited Lucky 32 with my husband and friends we haven't seen in awhile. We got artichoke dip to start, which was delicious! I ordered the shrimp and grits with brussels sprout choucroute. The shrimp and grits was good, but the grits was more like polenta. The taste was okay. Mine must have been sitting under a heat lamp... More

Have been to Lucky 32 many times since they opened and have always enjoyed. Decided not to cook this year for T-day and thought Lucky 32 would be a nice alternative. Nice atmosphere as usual. Prix Fixe Menu sounded appetizing but was terrible! If I had been blindfolded I truly would never have guessed I was eating turkey. It was... More

We've eaten here once before and decided to try it for Thanksgiving. Yummy! They had a reasonably priced traditional turkey dinner with a southern spin. It was very, very good. If you like fresh southern style food - this is a great place to go. The decor is European bistro instead of downhome kitchy but the food is excellent.

Upscale establishment with southern cuisine. Excellent for lunch and dinner. Costs a few extra dollars but well worth it.
