“Great ribs and service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

Overall it was quite a good experience. The pork ribs were excellent, other meat dishes also OK, but the side veg dishes were not to remember. The place looks nice, typical American and the service was very good. I will go again!

“Southern fare exactly how one expects”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

We enjoyed Lucille's so much we had dinner there twice in four nights. Husband is a huge fan of baby back ribs (approx. $26 USD for full rack+ taxes)and Lucille's delivered exactly to his liking. As is typical in steakhouse restaurants in the US, the servings are enormous but as the food is so tasty, you can't help but overeat. The biscuits served before the meal were warm and delicious but strange that they were sprinkled with sugar and served with a cinnamon butter - probably prefer a more savoury variety like the ones you get at Red Lobster. Not being an expert in Southern cuisine, the menu appeared quite authentic to me - extensive selection means making a decision quickly is not easy as almost everything held appeal. Only downside is be prepared for a 30 min (approx) wait to be seated. Although if you see stools vacant at the bar, just plop yourself down and eat at the counter (no waiting required) - it still provides plenty of room for your oversized dishes!

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

We had to wait a while, even with a reservation. We never received our appetizers, they brought me the wrong drink and then took forever to replace it. My chicken was pink and undercooked and overall the food wasn't that great. We spoke with a manager who apologized and took money off the bill, but the overall experience was poor.

“Tastes as Good as it Smells”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

The food is well prepared and the barbecue aroma permeates the restaurant. The best portabella mushroom sandwich anywhere. The portions are large, you get you money's worth.
