Description: LUCKY'S is widely known for its exclusive selection of USDA Prime steaks, live Maine lobsters, no-nonsense cocktails and world class wine cellar. LUCKY'S remains one of a rare few to honor the no nonsense steak dinner traditions. From the moment you’re greeted at you car by the valet, seated at your table, encouraged to roll up your sleeves, martini in hand, you are served. Are you ever served!There’s just no other eatery in Santa Barbara that practices the art of serving a prime steak dinner better than LUCKY'S.

“Best Steaks in Town”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

Although quite pricey, the steaks here are out of this world. We enjoyed dinner here twice during our week long visit to Santa Barbara which says a lot in itself. We dined on two different weeknights when it wasn't packed to an overcrowded level. The atmosphere is very nice and you couldn't ask for more from the hostess to the servers. Our group of six dined on the steaks both nights and we enjoyed them tremendously. They were perfectly prepared as ordered. The side dishes and salads were delicious as well. I recommend this restaurant highly and will return if I am ever in this area again. Star gazers may be surprised at who they might see there.

“Overrated and overpriced”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Some people love this place, I just don't get it. Maybe because I'm not single?

“Excellent steakhouse”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We had dinner here Saturday night and it was wonderful. The place is very atmospheric and fun for a night out. Our steaks were great and the hashbrowns with gruyere were AMAZING!!!!!! I'd definitely recommend this place to a friend and return again on my next trip to Santa Barbara.

“busy local landmark”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

Cottage style building with lots of little rooms and nooks. Filled with Hollywood memorabilia though true history of this restaurant with film crowd is a decade or so. Lots of regulars, busy hum, not too loud. Huge wonderful menu. Drinks great. Excellent wine list. We had 4 different entrees and loved all of them
