There isn't much competition in the area for this restaurant. The bar is a lively place to sit and eat when you are solo. I had the catfish and it was very moist and flavorful. You get 3 sides so it is a very good value. They also have a dry French rose by the glass which was a pleasant... More

We never leave Lucky 32 disappointed . It's a go to for our Sunday brunch when we're wanting something beyond the basics. The atmosphere is relaxed, the service very good and it's a great spot to bring well behaved kiddos

I'm not sure how I feel about Lucky 32. On one hand, they have great appetizers. On the other hand, the majority of what we ordered was way too rich. Our party of 7 (4 adults and 3 kids) came in on a Friday at around 6. We had made a resso earlier that day on OpenTable without any issues.... More

Always great service and wonderful food at affordable prices. This is not a chain and feels like you've gone someplace special every time. I love the salmon and the burgers but the whole menu is delicious :)

Food is reasonable, not great. Good, not great atmosphere. Good place to go if you don't want to take any chances. Clean and delivers good service however the decor is starting to feel a bit tired.

Have dined here several times, first review. I will begin by explaining that I am a bred and bone Southerner and relative to my 70 plus years, the menu is not a true southern menu. With that, I will compliment the average food and excellent service. My comments are from an overall perspective of four previous visits. If you are... More

Wonderful "classy" and "classic" southern food. Try the chicken and dumplings. Service is good. Make a reservation to get the time you want. They send coupons when you sign up.

20 or so years ago I used to really like Lucky 32. It was a preferred date night destination for a fair bit of the early to mid 90s. Then, gradually, as a result of new and trendier choices it kind it diminished in my eyes. The choices seemed kind of boring, the flavors lacking, the cost to high for... More
