We made a 7:15 pm reservation on a Wednesday night. We arrived about 7 pm and found the parking lot full and the restaurant and bar packed with people. We parked in the BB&T bank parking lot next door. I had the suspicion we might wait past our reservation time. I was pleasantly surprised when we were seated at exactly... More

Lucky 32 has great southern cuisine. We particularly enjoyed the shrimp and grits and the pork tenderloin. The cornbread was fabulous. We enjoyed Saturday dinner so much that we returned for Sunday brunch. Yum!!

We were in NC, for a short visit. My wife and I found Lucky 32 on Yelp and decided to swing by. What a great experience. The atmosphere was comfortable and charming, the menu was packed with Southern favorites... The service was remarkable (ask for Dillion, we actually "friended" him on Facebook. The bill didn't knock us out either. We... More

Wonderful restaurant, the food,service and atmosphere are all excellent.We celebrated our anniversary there. The waiter was knowledgeable about the many wines they serve and made an excellent recommendation.We have celebrated our anniversary there before and will definitely be back.Local food is emphasized and a there is a seasonal menu that changes every few months.

Went here with family on a friday night on a graduation weekend. Despite the traffic, service was friendly and efficient. Food was good, not great, but solid, and had lots of choices (especially if you like southern food like shrimp and grits--big hit with my picky daughter). All of the vegetables were great. Pickles a treat. Nice wine and cocktail... More

We visited on the recommendation of family (we were visiting). They had not been before but heard "great" things from their friends. I left disappointed. We all found the menu to be a bit uninformative. We all had questions for our server. She handled the questions well and was very friendly but the service was spotty from there. The dining... More

I am embarrassed by how badly we let you and your family down during your visit. There are a lot of things in your review that we did poorly...from overcooking your pork, to not providing you with quick and attentive service. I would love to talk more with you about your experience and, hopefully, make up for some of our... More

Great concept with fresh, local food. Got the catfish which was rather dry, and could have used more sauce. Collard greens were a bit bland, as were the sweet potatoes. I will try it again, but choose something else, with more spices, for my entree.

Jennifer, I am sorry we prepared your food in a way that didn't meet either of our standards. Bland and dry are two words we hope to never hear when describing out food. Thank you for the feedback and for being open to giving us another shot at impressing you. Greg Miller Service Manager Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen More
