We stopped here on a whim one day years ago and fell in love with the place. It is our families favorite restaurant in the area. Great upscale Southern food. We brought our mid-west friends here during a visit and they loved the food, especially the Fried Green Tomatoes. My wife and I always order the Shrimp and Grits but,... More

We made reservations at 645 but when we arrived found out they were changed? to 715. Fortunately, they seated us at the bar area which was less crowded. The food was very tasty with generous servings. They also changed servers during our meal.I guess one of them had an end to their shift.

We have dined at the restaurant on a regular basis for years and are consistently pleased with the quality of our meals and service. No matter how busy, we are always seated on time in our preferred booth. On a recent visit to this busy restaurant our server told us many walk-ins had requested to sit at the booth reserved...

From steak, salmon, pulled pork, pork medallions, and shrimp with grits, every meal was Great! Though it was really busy for a Thursday night, we were seated on time. Our meal did take about 45 minutes to be served, but the wait was worth it. Our server Ben was very friendly and accommodating. All the sides were good too, including... More

After reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor, and visiting the area for the first time, had to try this place. Wow, nothing disappoiinted us at all. Our server Maria was attentive and friendly. We had a lot of questions and she answered them all. Even was spot on with her recommendations. Try the beet salad which we shared along... More

great atmosphere, fantastic food, attentive service. we had the scallop special (huge scallops, lovely sauce) as well as the shrimp and grits (good staple, a bit overspiced but nicely done). recommended by our hotel also as a place that gave a discount for hotel guests. Turns out they don't, but they honored the mistake. We intend to return as soon... More

The menu at Lucky 32 is crammed with traditional Southern dishes – many of which I, a Yankee, had never heard of. However, this is not a linoleum-fluorescent light emporium; it is a beautifully-decorated modern restaurant with a bar area, outside seating and a lively crowd. The food is delicious. Do not be scared by a full parking lot; the... More

I hail from the Pacific Northwest and do not have much of a chance to eat much southern style cooking. So a visit here for lunch recently was a treat. The atmosphere is sylish and comtemporary. Service was very friendly and courteous. Our group sampled a number of dishes. I had the Brunswick Stew (fabulous) and Pulled Pork Sandwich (wonderful... More

My daughter and I recently ate at Lucky 32 not once, but TWICE, while we were in Cary visiting colleges. We dined at Lucky 32 the first night based on reviews we had read on Trip Advisor. In addition, the concierge at our hotel highly recommended the venue. My family is from the South and I grew up eating traditional... More
