Good Luck serves food family style and the table is expected to share food. Therefore the menu is a mix of vegetable sides and entrees. I tried the tripe, white pizza, the burger, a cauliflower with Indian spices, and the chicken special. The tripe was served in a tomato broth and quite a nice surprise. The pizza was rather ordinary but the chicken dish was excellent. The burger is huge and comes with a heap of yummy fries. Good Luck is known for its bar menu and the Glen Rickey was like an adult lemonade.

We have been to the last two Inspiration Dinners at Good Luck. September was inspired by their local garden and October was inspired by Offal! (Offal is part of the animal that normally is discarded) The Garden dinner was exceptional in presentation and quality. The staff puts a lot of thought into the menu and pairs each course with an approprite wine selection. We were really excited for the Offal Table. We even have t-shirts designed for our group saying "I (heart) offal" we were served lamb terrine, sweetbreads. beef heart ragu, bison tongue and foie gras ice cream for desert! I can't even begin to describe the flavors but can tell you that it was exceptional and an evening we will never forget!! Compliments to the creative staff at Good Luck.

Enjoyed an evening out with a friend at Good Luck. Meals are meant to be shared, which just adds to the friendship vibe.
Had their hambuger which was a gourmet treat...the fries and special sauce were spot on.
The mac and cheese special were to die for.
The service by Steven was engaged and knowledgable when he was there, but I wouldn't call the turnaround quick. It was a Thursday night and with reservations at 7 we were sat in a mostly empty, large restaurant. At 8 it was full and hopping.
Enjoy, I will definitely return.

Celebrated our friend's anniversary here. The food was tasty and we were fortunate to be sitting in the corner near the windows, so the noise wasn't as bad as it could have been. All the food is shared and every dish had very good flavors. We had Grilled romaine hearts, the large charcuterie plate, Red lentils, Chive Gnocchi and the Grilled Porterhouse steak. If we hadn't had the steak, the meal would have been less pricey! The atmosphere is wonderful, except for the noise. You should have atleast 4 in your party to enjoy the food. This is not the place for you if you like to eat large portions of food!!! Our server was wonderful as he was a former teammate of our kids in high school. I hope something can be done about the noise level...

We thoroughly enjoyed our shared meal, and had fast, friendly service. However, as the evening went on and the bar crowd grew it was almost impossible to converse without shouting. Nice to see it's so popular though!
