I dined at Lucky Lou's a year ago and fell in love with the Lobster Mac 'n Cheese, the paintings on the wall on the second floor, and the live jazz playing in the late afternoon. I returned last week with guests, specifically for the Lobster Mac 'n Cheese and it was an incredible disappointment. The pasta was swimming in butter and every bite was, first and last, greasy. It tasted mostly like butter fat, but I can't be sure since the dish was so changed. There was no cheese to be found or tasted. Moderate amount of lobster.
I will say the lobster sliders were excellent. The shame is, they skimp on the amount of lobster in the sliders. I've only lived in New England for two years now and everywhere I eat lobster, whether it be CT, RI, MA, or Maine, they always pile it on. I haven't felt like I've been lucky because it's so consistent. New England has great lobster and they're proud of it! They scoop it on in a decently giant pile to give you what you came for. Last year, the same was true at Lucky Lou's. Not this year. The skimpy portion between the tiny buns made me leave not wanting to come back. Not to mention the whole can of mandarin oranges dumped in the overdressed arugula salad.
If you want to try it, drop in for lunch as prices really jump at the 2:30 p.m. lunch cut-off time. I lived in San Diego for years and I'm used to dinner prices kicking in about 4 p.m., so 2:30 seemed quite early for lunch to be over in summer tourist season.
